Golf Tips: Keeping Your Eye On The Ball

Keep Your Eyes on the Ball During Your Golf Swing

There is an old adage in golf that says you should keep your eye on the ball. I believe that, but I believe that we have to take it all the way to the conclusion of the golf swing. What I mean by that is that when you set up to the golf ball you want to look at the golf ball. When you are at the top of the backswing you want to be looking at the golf ball. As you go to impact you want to be looking at the golf ball, but too many people continue to look at the ground once the golf ball is gone. There is nothing there but grass and dirt. You want to keep to the adage of keep your eye on the golf ball. Once the ball is gone let your eyes start looking for the shot. That is going to allow your body to continue to move through and it is going to help pull the club though and you are going to see where that nice shot just went. So keep your eye on the golf ball.
