Hi All, i've been following the RST for a couple of months now and having lessons with Sam Jarman here in the U.K. I seem to have got the posture down and now am working an the Takeaway.

I've had a habit of taking the club away on the inside and flipping the hands inside too which to be honest is my main problem. I wondered how long it's taken other guys to get the RST takeaway nailed down?

Well, it took me a few years.  So, it can take a while if you don't approach it correctly.   But, it won't have to take more than a few weeks IF you do a couple of things.  First, realize that you're INSIDE because (with 99% assuredness) you're pushing the club back with the left arm.  The way to get over that is to do right arm only takeaways, by the boat load.  I prefer to left the left hand hover near the club while doing them.  But, left arm on your back or chest is fine if you prefer that.  The key is that the left arm is dominant on the takeaway and you have train yourself to pull it back with the right.  There is no faster way to do that than eliminating the left arm during the conversion.
 
The second thing to do is set a shaft in the ground or something equivalent to that to let you know if you get inside with it.  Set it an inch inside so that you won't touch it if you're right on the money but will touch it if you get inside even a little.  And Third, when you do put the left hand back on the club DO NOT lose that wrist set that you have at address on the way back.  If you lose that, the club will get flat and behind. 
 
Finally, before you start, make sure you watch Chuck's "Five minutes to a perfect takeaway" vid. 
 
If you do all that and are really faithful to it, you can have it nailed in about six weeks to where it's brainlessly automatic.  Best of luck to you.

Thansk for the reply, you worried thiough when you started with 2 years!!!! You're right in your assumption that i do get the left arm across the chest on the takeaway, i can still play to a half decnet standard but i know i'll never be consistent untiul i get this nailed down.
