A great way to prevent laying the club off on the takeaway or getting trapped inside is to practice your swing against a wall or the back of a couch. The couch works best as you can make a full back swing. With the wall, you can only go half way up. Once your takeaway reaches parallel to both the ground and the wall start working the club upwards. At this point your wrists should be cocking and your arms will travel up towards the ceiling. If you hit the couch or the wall that is an indication that you are going too far inside. Chances are you are rolling your wrists instead of cocking them or your arms are actually staying too connected to your body as you are turning your shoulders.
