On my last swing review it was mentioned that I needed to turn my hips more in my take away and backswing. I am confused by this as I have been practicing to minimize the hip turn (please see page 85 of the RSG Level 1 Instructors Manual that states " hips turn minimally, as little as 0 degrees. ") I have understood, that I was to provide healthy tension between my hips not turning and my upper torso turning. If I am misunderstanding something, please clarify it for me. Thanks

Hello Bernard. The hips will turn relatively little in the takeaway. However, if you have a hard time over using your arms going back. More than likely your instructor want you to add a little hip rotation because it is much more important that the arms don't swing off the ball and that the engine body/hips are directing the motion.

Hi, Chuck is describing at the end a picture of Tiger Woords takeway, saying that their sould be no space between the forearms. I've tried in every possible ways, there is no way i can have no space between my forearms ! I'm 188cm tall, i have broad shoulders (rugby player), maybe thats the reason? Ronan

Hello Ronan. If your trail arm is straight and isn't on top of the club. You should be fine. If you would like to upload a picture of your completed takeaway to the forum here. I would be happy to check it.
