Eye on the prize

There are lots of ways we talk about feel in the golf swing and for most players, feel is an individual thing which takes some trial and error to understand.

A simple thought I like to keep in my mind is to anticipate the club returning to its position at address as I make contact. You can’t see the middle of the club actually make contact, but this is a great thought to have as it allows hand-eye coordination to take over rather than thinking about too much technical movement.

This thought is also great if you’re looking to stay balanced in your swing. For those who tend to lunge toward the target and produce a weak strike, looking at the back of the ball from the time you take your address is going to help you make a controlled swing and hit the ball more solidly.
