Alignment Stick Take-Away
This is a great drill for players who tend to start their swing with a "disconnected" arm action; this "disconnect" will usually manifest itself as an early wrist/shoulder load or an excessive internal rotation and shrug of the lead shoulder. If you fall into this category, be sure to maintain the pressure of the alignment stick or grip into your side until the club is parallel. This will allow your core and hips to drive the take-away, as opposed to the arms, leading to better low-point control and a more athletic pivot.
