Tip From the Archives
You look up too soon to see where the ball is going or try to keep your head perfectly still.
Do not look up at the ball until you complete the swing; if you do, you are likely to slice or pull the ball. A little head movement during your swing is natural due to the way your neck and shoulders move away and towards the target. Once your swing is complete, your head will naturally turn towards the target then you can watch the ball. If you try too hard to keep your head down, you might not make a full shoulder turn. You might even notice some swaying because you prevented your forward shoulder from moving under your chin because it was resting on your chest.
Look at the ball, keep your chin off of your chest, and take a normal swing. Your forward shoulder should move under your chin during the backswing if you make a full shoulder turn. Notice how your trailing shoulder passes under your chin during the follow through. Let this motion push your head up to look at the target as your arms are completing the swing.
