This one simple trick will fix an inside takeaway instantly, I guarantee it!

    If your takeaway starts off on the wrong foot, the rest of your golf swing has very little chance of being nothing more than a big bucket of compensations. The great thing is, getting the takeaway right, especially with Rotary Swing, is the simplest move in all of golf. However, I still see my students mess it up all the time 'cause the miss a couple really simple but absolutely critical details I'm gonna cover with you right now. 
                    I'm gonna give you one awesome, super simple trick that'll make your takeaway keeping the club from going inside and under the plane a thing of the past. You'll never struggle with this again. Let me show you what I'm talking about. I'm gonna give you one simple trick here.
                    My favorite clue with the golf swing when I see somebody start messing up and I start seeing this step happening, as soon as I see this, I know what's going on and how simple it is to fix it. But as soon as you start taking the club back in like this, if this looks like you, you're going a little inside under the swing plane, high handicaps, then you get across the line at the top, and then come over, lower handicaps, then you get really stuck and come under from the inside.
                    How do we fix this? All I want you to do is take your right hand, if you're a right-handed golfer, and take your thumb and push it onto the crease of your left wrist. When you look at this, when you set up at address, everybody's wrist is gonna have a little bit of cupping, their left wrist at address, because of the nature of the grip.
                    Now, what people tend to do is they lose this cupping and flatten out their wrist way too early in the swing. Now, yes, this does need to flatten out gradually throughout the entire golf swing so that by the time you get to the top, this is nice and flat. But what happens is people do this right away. This flattens out the wrist. What they're doing is taking the right wrist, which is already in a flat position, and hinging it 'cause this feels really awesome. It feels powerful.
                    But all you're doing is shutting the club face and taking it back inside. By the time you get to the top, you're gonna have a really hooded club face, and then you're gonna have, again, this big bucket of compensations that we don't need in the golf swing. Let's make this really simple. Keep that left wrist cupped naturally throughout the takeaway. Now, yes, it is gonna start to flatten a little bit. But what happens is people flatten it out too much too soon.
                    Let's take a look at what this is gonna look like. I'm gonna take my right thumb, put it on this crease in between my forearm bones and my hand, and all I'm gonna do as I take the club back is keep pushing on that. That makes the wrist bend and stay in this position. Now as I do this, notice how the club, and I'll scoot back a little bit so you can see the club, club goes up on plane. Notice how it stays outside my hands. How would the club ever go inside my hand during the takeaway with my thumb pushing on this crease on my wrist?
                    Notice how the club stays outside. Easy peasy. Now the takeaway, getting the club to go up on plane, and it's simple. Just take your right thumb, push it on your left wrist, rotate your body back, keep that club nice and outside your hands, struggle with the takeaway no more. Tip from RotarySwing.com.

"I think he's come very close to a golf swing model that appears to be ideal...It's a big muscle, motor-driven swing that's repeatable...You don't have to be a super athlete."

"I started playing at 70 years old, at the beginning I was scoring around 100 plus... Following the RST 5 Step System my scores are in the 80 to 86 range. I am out-hitting guys in their 40's and 50's, thanks to you and your system. My back or other muscles never ache, nor am I tired after 18 holes. I am so glad I found your technique and system."
