How do I correct my golf swing?

Question by SoSueme: How do I correct my golf swing?
My takeaway is giving me problems. My club goes WAY inside on the takeaway, thus causing my downswing to be flat and away from the ball, causing me to make contact around the hosel. Is there any type of equipment that works to correct this problem? Or…maybe a golf tip that you know that could help? Thanks!

Yeah, i used to have the same problem. When you take it back, it feels natural to take it inside, but try to take it staright back, which to you will feel like talking it outside. Also, toe to the sky is a good takeaway tip. MAke sure the toe of the club is facing the sky. Hope it helps!

    Best way to correct a golf swing is to visit the professional who is known as a good teacher. Spend a few bucks. Take the lessons. Practice what he preaches.

    Judge Smailes used to have this problem. It was caused by Smailes putting all his weight on his left side at takeaway. Carl Spackler cured the situation by slicing through the judge’s achilles tendon – stopped his shanks immediately.
    You’d know this if you ever watched CaddyShack.

    Take it straight back and cock the wrists.

    take a tutorial lesson from a professional golfer and watch the previous golf tournament so that you can get an idea how they’ll do it then practice.you can also buy a book available online wherein you can get tips and techniques.
