I bet you have been told, more than once, that you lifted your head or have been given the advice to ‘keep your head down’
Next time you hear it ignore it. It’s basically an old wives tale and an old fashioed piece of advice that causes more problems than it fixes.
Most golfers do not lift their heads as they hit the ball in fact most are so conscious of keeping their heads down they often keep it down so much that they get crumpled up over the ball causing the arms to bend to create space and promoting a topped shot.
The more you try and keep your head down the more likely you are to top the ball as your arms collapse to give you room.
Follow the Annika Sorenstam example above.
She sees the ball being hit and then turns her head as her shoulders turn allowing her to keep her arms straight and extend beautifully out after the ball.
Notice that Annika is turning her head towards the target (middle picture) as she hits the ball allowing her body to turn and accelerate through the shot.
So the key is to SEE the ball being hit but then come up and through to a nice full high finish position and admire that nice shot you have just hit !!!!
