You hear this mantra in every sport � keep your eye on the
ball! It�s a perfect chant for the golf player at every turn.
If you can�t see the ball clearly, your chances of hitting it
are slim to none!
When you look at the ball, you want to keep your eyes on one
spot. Don�t look at your club to see if it�s squared to the
ball. Don�t let your eye follow the club as you draw it away
Just focus on the ball � nothing else.
Also, when you look at the ball, try to get a bird�s eye view
of it. Your eyes are about a foot above the pivotal center so
raising your shoulders isn�t going to help you see the ball
better. Don�t gaze at the ball along the line of the shaft of
your club. Look down on the ball rather than get your angles
along the shaft. This will give you much better results and you
won�t have a tendency to look up too soon.
Now, there�s a natural tendency in everyone to look away when
you start to draw the club back. Ignore that tendency and just
keep looking down on top of the ball.
When you�re looking down you�ll notice that (if you�re leaning
over properly) the only way you can keep the club head in the
line of flight is to keep your hands moving along parallel with
that line. Sweep your hands along with the club head while the
ball and head are in contact.
Mastering the skill of seeing the ball clearly until you hit it
is true of every kind of shot. Whether the ball is in long
grass, on an up or down slope, no matter what�s around you -the
main thing is to see the ball clearly to hit it accurately.
Very few golfers stand still when looking at the ball and
concentrate their attention on seeing the ball clearly. A lot
of the times people will give a glance in the direction they
want the ball to go, then they look back at the ball. Many
golfers would be shocked to find out that they don�t stand
still and keep their eye on the ball. The second your gaze
shifts from the ball during any part of the swing, problems
Really, a lack of concentration is responsible for most golfing
mistakes. You can hit the ball well when you can clearly see the
ball at every point in your swing from start to finish.
If you want to wipe out one of the worst golf faults, determine
that from the top of your swing until you hit the ball you will
keep your eye clearly on the ball. You�ll find your golf game
improving so significantly � your friends may start asking you
