Looking up before impact with the ball:
Now I may look up for this sexy girl :
But stood over a shot it is time to keep your eyes focused on the ball. Once you have learnt the basics, you then need to develop the correct mind set. Mind Game: Golden Rule: During your pre-shot routine you learn to visualize the shot, in your mind you can see the target area; you see the flight path of the ball (trajectory) NO negative thoughts. Stand over the shot with confidence and be positive. Now all you need to do is trust your swing and your club selection, focus on balance, tempo, and rhythm.
Golfers with a strong mental game realize that the present is all that they can control. (Forget your bad shot) Learn to play in the present without dwelling the bad shots. Realize the power of just being in the moment with the full intention and expectation to play a good shot, once a good player has gone through his pre-shot routine, they address the ball and concentrate for just 10 seconds, once they start the back swing they switch to natural swing the one they use every time for that shot, they play on instinct and trust their subconscious or and muscle memories to make it happen for them. Learning to play in the present on instinct requires time and effort. That is why experience is such a priceless commodity. Because when all else fails, the truth emerges from one’s experiences if you are honest with yourself. By training your mind to play in the present, you can shorten the time required to experience the power of being free to play on instinct and in the zone. Unfortunately, many golfers never learn to stop dwelling on their past and future
Note ___ Her eyes are on the ball and will stay there until after impact with the ball.
This is the number one mistake that golfers make. Being too keen to see where your shot is going, you begin to look up during the downswing and before the clubface make’s contact with the ball. This moves the body, which misaligns the swing path.
How I overcome this problem?
During my pre-shot routine I place the ball on the tee will the logo lined up with the target.
At address I never freeze over the ball, I waggle the club to shake the any tension from my arms take one last look at the target, visualize the shot in my mind, take the club back smooth and low in line with the target, make a full turn, start my down swing with a movement of my right hip, pull down with the left arm butt of my club pointing at the ball till below my belt, now fully focused on the point of impact, I actual can see the club make impact with the ball. You really can train your eyes to see your club impact with the ball, the club should still be in line and prior to impact on level to slightly upward plane. Trust your swing and the loft on your club, but ensure you remain focused on impact with the ball. Keep arms fully extended through impact, concentrate on a low follow-through.
With your own eyes you will see the ball -- "disappear". Main objective is timing tempo, relaxed natural swing with light grip. Pull down with the left arm; do not let the strong right arm force the shot. DO NOT swing like a mad axe man, keep left side firm with left knee bent through impact. Swing through the ball, not at it. Make sure your arms fully extended through impact.
Rotate your wrists / hands hit through the ball in line with the target If you are battling with a lack of distance, one of the first things you should concentrate on is releasing your hands through the ball correctly. Make sure that your forearms are close together at impact, and after impact, your forearms should be crossed as you make your full follow through. This will ensure are not making a block shot it will help with the slice, and will do wonders for your distance. If you are losing balance then you are for sure swinging too hard and too fast.
