Eric Cogorno: How to Start the Golf Swing Correctly

So many bad golf shots can be traced back to a poor understanding of how we amateur golfers should start the golf swing. The golf takeaway is a pretty simple concept, but its importance can't be underemphasised because that first move back is key to allowing the other pieces of your golf swing to fall into place.

In this week's video, Eric Cogorno helps you with this move by explaining the desired motion in your feet, the benefit of a pre-takeaway waggle, pushing off your lead side, and the feeling of 'throwing' the clubhead back.
