Learn the Proper Eye Line for your Golf Swing Set Up

Properly Align Eyes in Your Golf Swing

In a previous video segment I talked about the relationship of my address when I was putting and how that effected the angle of my stroke. The same thing applies to golf swing.

  • When I set up to the golf ball if my eyes and my hat are level to the ground and remain that way throughout the entire swing I have the best chance of swinging the correct direction on my target line.
  • If I get set up and my head is tilted up and to the right I am going to have the tendency to take the club too far inside and I am going to have a tendency to swing too far up to the right in my follow through.
  • Conversely if I got set up and my eyes were pointed down to the left I would have a tendency to take the club back to the outside and swing down to the left in the downswing.

You want to remember that you want to keep your eyes level to the ground at the start of the swing, at the top of the swing, as you come back into impact and then look for the ball once you have hit it. That way you have your best chance of making solid contact consistently.
