I am sure that you have read, watched, discussed, and surmised every component of a golf swing. Believe me when I tell you that I have, at nauseum, dissected even the minor movements of my golf swing. After all my efforts to be a student of the game, there is one universal unbreakable tenet that every golfer should follow.
After fiddling with my grip, adjusting my stance, massaging my tempo and moving ball positions, I can say with certainty that if I do not keep my head still during my swing mechanics, none of the above changes make a difference. To ensure there is one constant with which to build my swing, keeping my head still is definitely it.
I know that keeping my head still is critical to my game because this specific movement, or lack there of, has a direct impact on the quality of my hits and scores. The more I focus on keeping my head still, the more solid my contact. It is hard to describe, but believe me if there is one thing I need to consistently do to be effective on the links…..keep my head still.
I think Jack described it the best. If I can continue to keep my head still, I think it will correct many of my current swing woes. I realize that I seem to be focused on my challenges lately and today is the last day I am going to discuss them for awhile. It is time to get back to being grateful, but this does not limit the importance of keeping my head still while playing.
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links.
