Video Golf Tip | Vision Focus: Set Up
By Katherine Marren

Here is another great way to use your eyes and vision to improve not only your set up but your golf swing. Most players when they set up to the golf ball get their eyes down and their chin on their chest which does not allow them to have any room to swing their shoulders back and that will also create some leg movement. That is going to cause the ball to slice drastically. One, because you can not get a turn and two because your legs move and get you into a reverse weight shift. This is a great drill. Next time you go out to the range try this. Set up to the ball and look at the horizon. Now just look down enough to see the golf ball. This is going to create a lot more room between your chin and chest to make a full shoulder turn and your legs can stay stable. Let me show you that from the other line. Here is where more golfers are in their set up. Kind of down, too focused on the golf ball, worried about hitting it. Now we need to look up and move our eyes just to look down enough to create a lot of space between our chin and chest. We can get a nice full shoulder turn, my legs stay stable and I can swing down on plane. That is going to add a lot of distance and accuracy to your golf shots. You are going to love it.

Short Shots Over Water Most players have no problem hitting a hundred yard shot but as soon as there is water between them and the green they panic, the key is committing to your shot and swing
Why We Use A Golf Glove The golf glove plays two critical rolls in the swing, first it decreases the pressure that the hands put on the grip and second it separates what the two hands do during the swing
Pre-Shot Routine: Trigger and Signal Mechanism Choose a trigger or signal mechanism to come into focus and total concentration before each shot
