Golf is a game where the player’s head plays an important role in the game. In fact, it is something that one should never leave out of mind; hence, the reason for writing this article. Never should you be playing golf with your head far behind! There is no reason why you should be doing so. After all, you can have a word with other professionals in the golfing industry , such as John Cook and Peter Kostis and they will tell you just how vital keeping your head behind the ball is.
Positioning your head properly as you approach the ball will allow you to swing the club at the right angle and approach the match at the correct angle. The result is consistency and distance.
Positioning of the ball
Balls should be placed either in the center of your stance or between the inside of your left heel and the center. When you are hitting a tennis ball, rotate your left heel.
The power of lean
As your right hand is lower on the club (for a right-handed golfer), your right shoulder should be slightly lower than your right and your head should follow the tilt of your shoulders. The power lean is the tilt of the spine away from the target. This spine angle should be maintained with every impact.

The top button of your shirt should remain the same throughout the backswing, downswing and impact. After impact, don’t let the button move toward the target.
Can I Master a Driver Golf Swing?
The driver is the club that is most likely to receive the most distance, but due to the length of the shaft and the low loft angle of the club face, hitting the club is difficult.
Make sure you remember to swing basics if you want to hit a drive off the tee. You should be able to master the driver swing with careful attention from setup to follow-through.
Keep your feet away from your left heel and place the ball on its edge. Balls will be behind you, and your weight will favor your back legs.
Your spine should tilt so that the right shoulder is lower than the left. The setup promotes a sweeping swing.
Make sure you are holding the club in your fingers, and not in the palm of your hand. Don’t grip the club tightly.
Instead of grounding the club, let the club hover above the ground instead. It encourages a wide takeaway for a sweeping path.
Start the backswing by keeping the club head low and sweeping the club back.
Place your weight on your back foot and turn your shoulders around your spine. It will point up toward your right armpit as you move your left shoulder.
The club should be brought back to the point where your arms and your wrists are parallel to the ground and your backswing is 90 degrees. Move your lower body first, then your upper body and arms before you start the descent.
As your weight shifts to your front foot, your left knee will move toward the target. Rotate your hips quickly to generate distance power.
Keep your hands cocked for as long as possible before using them at impact. As a club makes contact with the ball, your arms will be stretched out and you will feel the weight of the club face. For a strong follow-through, hit through the ball for a good shot. After the swing, your back heel will be up and your back toe was pointed toward the ground.
