Digging Deep Into the Golf Swing
When you have a target on the golf course, and you set your body to swing a golf club towards that target, and if you set yourself incorrectly, your body is not going to be able to produce rhythm, timing or power! Your body is going to feel consciously or unconsciously awkward and you are going to either hook, slice, hit it fat or thin. On a good day you might get it right few times, but on a bad day, you are going to be all over the place all the time.
The big question therefore is; are you aiming correctly?
Believe me when I say, that I have discussed this with tour pros and working pros and they all agree on this one, but very seldom you go out on a round with a pro, so he/she will be able to see how you really aim. You take your lessons on the practice range with best golf clubs, you get your tips and off you go - and you will continue to aim badly.
You might even know this, and you aim pretty well, but if your BODY DOESN'T SEE AND FEEL that the aim is correct, you will be either slicing or hooking the ball plus all kinds of other errors creep in.
So now go the practice range and concentrate on only one thing: getting the aim correct. Pick a target, go behind the ball and visualize a straight line from your ball to the target - ok, that is pretty easy with best golf clubs. Now go and address the ball but try to see that same line. You will find that from behind the ball it's very easy to visualize a straight line to the target, but from the address position, it's much harder, you probably see the line wrong and it feels like you will be hitting to the left or to the right.
If you really want to improve your golf, you need to be able to aim correctly every shot! If you skip this and continue the way you have, you will not be able to find rhythm, power and accuracy. But when you get it right, you will feel how your body works correctly, effortlessly and you will produce good rhythm and generate much more power than ever before - guaranteed!
Go to the range and pick new targets every five shots or so, visualize the line, and don't give up until you can see it from your address position. If you find it very hard to do - try turning your head a little at the time when staying in your address position, chances are your eyes might be away from the line because of bad habit and you need to adjust your eyes to see the line correctly.
You will maybe feel weird at first, but stick to it relentlessly and results will come.
