 Golf Tip of the Fortnight 

Full Swing Tip

Have you ever heard that you were supposed to keep your head still during your swing? That's incorrect. It is an ancient piece of "wisdom" that still seems to be accepted as one of the etched-in-stone tenants of the golf swing by a number of golfers. Nobody that is or was any good at golf ever kept their head still. Watch the players you see on the tours closely. They do not keep their heads still. It is not possible to keep your head still without reversing your weight shift (Well, Gumby* might be able to do it.)

To be more specific, it is a good idea to keep your spine angle constant, or to keep your head at the same height. But, based on the fact that you have two hip joints which you will be rotating on if you swing well, your spine/head will have to move laterally (back and forth) to some degree -- though not excessively.

If you only have one leg (or are a Stack-and-Tilter) then it would be a good (or somewhat more sensible) idea to keep your head still(ish) -- and a good general principle that head height remain stable (predator's, remember?). But if you have two legs let your head flow back and forth a bit and I believe things will work out better.

*Does anybody besides me have a clue who Gumby is? Is there anybody left in this... unusual world from that spacetime? And how about three cheers for Hobo Kelly and Farmer John... Holy S#&t, Batman! I remember the Three Stooges as being "the old stuff." But The Wizard of Oz is one because...

I work with golfers of all skill levels on all areas of their games (individually or in small groups of friends, family, co-workers, etc.) in my Private Golf Schools.
