A very important aspect of the golf swing is actually watching
the ball until the precise moment the club head strikes the ball.
An idea of what I mean, if you were holding a sharp needle
and you attempted to touch the tip of the needle with your index
finger tip, unless you watched the tip of the needle very carefully,
you could easily prick your finger on the needle. - This is how
much attention you must pay in watching the ball until the club
head makes contact with the ball.
Most golfers do not watch the ball right up to the precise
moment the club head makes contact, they think they do, but what
happens is that the conscious mind is aware that the ball is going
to be struck so the mind force the eyes to anticipate the flight
of the ball a nano-second before the club actually makes contact
with the ball, subsequently the golfer`s head begins to turn to
see the flight of the ball, causing the shoulders to begin to
turn towards the target area, too soon.
So if you want to improve the strike of the ball, train yourself
to actually watch the ball right up to the point when the club
head makes contact with the ball, but importantly, at that precise
moment you must force the whole body to quickly turn to fully face the target area whilst the arms interact.
I can assure you that it is not easy to do, but concentrate
on the task and see the result of your labours.
