A good proportion of tour players use the one piece take away. There is many reasons although one factor is for rhythm and tempo for backswing sequence.
Recently I have made a change to my set up and take away. As with most things when you first start doing it you do it at a slow and steady pace. Now that the change in my grip, my takeaway etc has become more of a natural feeling I am falling into the trap of losing my tempo. Getting cocky and going way too fast in my takeaway and as a result getting all out of shape and struggling with contact, shorter irons tend to be hit cleaner, driver, hybrids and long irons getting a nasty hook happening.
Whats the best way to train yourself with tempo, is there a way or is it more about just getting on the range and focusing on slow slow slow slow
As a suggestion try intiating the back swing with your shoulders first, then followed by the arms. Although still keeping the arms connected. Use the shoulders to take the club away rather than the hands. Generally this sequence resolves rhythm and tempo issues without having to try control backswing speeds. Hope this helps.
