Help - I can’t start my takeaway
I really don’t know how it happened but sometime in the last year I developed a “thing” where I can’t start the backswing unless the club is lifted off the ground (ie. not touching the grass). I set up like normal with the club behind the ball (touching grass) but then I’ll lift the club off ground, let it hover for a few seconds, and start my backswing.
Oddly I don’t think it’s affected my swing or ball striking (at least not that I can tell) but I’m standing over the ball longer because I have to hover the club for a few seconds before starting my swing. Sometimes as I’m hovering the club my body gets so tense I have to back off and start my swing over.
I’ve gone to the range a few times to try and fix it but I can’t. My body freezes and won’t let me start the background unless the club is lifted off ground. And when I force it, my swing feels jerky and I hit terrible shots.
I’ve developed some bad swing habits but this is the first of something like this. And it’s just my driver and irons. When I chip or putt, I can start my backswing just fine.
Anyone else have something similar and how do I fix it.
