Tom’s Bonus Tip:
Head Movement Yes and No
For the sake of simplicity, all advice on swings and drills is provided from a right handed perspective; lefties …. well, you know what to do!
Head Movement – No.
When you are putting, keep your head absolutely still, period.
Head Movement – Yes.
When you are swinging the club for other shots, it’s totally permissable to let your head rotate to follow the ball after it’s been cleanly struck.
Note that I said rotate,
Lateral head movement forward towards the target or backwards away from the target should not occur.
The old adage of “keep your head down” (worst advice ever) will ruin your neck as well as your shot. Your body, including your neck and head, need to turn (release) through the shot. I’ll bet that you thought the word release only applied to hands and wrists, but it very much applies to body turn. The key is to maintain your torso angle of inclination towards the ground as you do it.
