Head behind the ball

In this week’s Pro Tip we’re working on head position. You want your head just behind the ball as Byron’s head is during his setup in picture #1 below.

During your takeaway and follow through try not to move your head and upper body laterally. See how Byron’s head is still in the same position at the top of his back swing in the pic below.

In the last pic below notice how Byron’s head position is still in the correct place right at impact.

Try to keep your head behind the ball as long as possible. Keeping the proper head position behind the ball will help prevent you from hitting blocks to the right. Your head will naturally move forward when you arrive in your finish position.
