With this grip, the toe of the club will tend to point toward the skywhen the shaft is roughly parallel with the ground (left). If your grip looks like Nick’s ,you can correct those mistakes by taking the club back so that when it’s parallel to the ground, the shaft should be roughly parallel to your toe line.
USE AN ALIGNMENT ROD TO GLIDE INTO THE PERFECT SLOT
Grab an alignment rod and stick it in the turf on a 45-degree angle with the ground. It should point at your trail hip and be planted about a foot behind where you should play a ball with an iron, which is roughly centered in your stance. Once you have the drill station set up, make some slow rehearsal swings so that the club swings back along that alignment rod. Let it glide along the rod and feel how this takeaway is not too far inside or outside the target line. Keep rehearsing it until you can remove the rod and re-create that path when you start hitting shots on the range and back out on the course.
