Keep Your Head Down

Don't lift your head at impactKeep 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.

Don’t Stand Up at Impact

Don't stand up at impact swing thoughtFocus 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.
