Keep looking down at the ball, even after making contact and up to the moment you no longer can during the follow through. This is contrast to lifting your head just before impact. It constitutes one of the first – if not the first – swing key instructions given to new golfers. Indeed, beginners are often very anxious to see where the ball will go after they hit it, which leads them to lift their heads too soon.
Think of the ball as an object that is to be trapped in between the club and the ground as you hit it. This is in contrast to thinking of the ball as an object that needs to be pushed up by the club using an ascending club path.
Try and keep the wrist hinge that you formed at the top of the swing in place for as long as possible as you bring the club down towards impact. This is in contrast to beginning to unhinge your wrists as you bring the club down during the downswing.
Focus on making sure you continue your swing after impact. This is in contrast to stopping – more or less – as soon as the club makes contact with the ball.
Focus on keeping your upper body forward tilt – or spine angle – constant throughout the swing, or at least until after impact. This is in contrast to starting to ‘stand up’ shortly before impact where the upper body starts to rise and reduce its forward tilt.
