Few golf techniques cause as much controversy as the “one-piece takeaway.” The modern approach is to cock your wrists very early in the swing, before the hands are even waist high, and many golf instructors now teach this “early set” as the correct way to swing.

The problem has been that it has often been taught improperly. Once you learn what a proper one-piece takeaway feels like, duplicating the proper motion is easy.
