Keeping Your Eye On The Ball

Keeping Your Eye On The Ball

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.

Proper Stance Width When taking your stance your feet should have the proper width, alignment and flaring in order to build a successful golf swing
Vision Focus: Set Up A common fault in the set up is having your head down and chin too close to your chest, this drill will fix that and allow you to turn effectively and use your legs correctly in the swing
Long Putt Eye Only Drill Stop thinking about how far back to take the putter or how hard to swing, your mind can do that automatically, and you can prove this by practicing your long putts by just looking at the hole and stroking the putt without looking down at the ball
