mvmac:  thank you for the reply.  I had read the post about golf posture (good post.)  What I am looking for, however, is more of an explanation as to "why" as opposed to "how."     I am looking for an explanation regarding what is happening optically when I am looking at a distant target from a sideways position (i.e. set up over a golf ball as opposed to behind it where you can use both eyes when they are level)  Articles reference that golfers often times mis-align...
I'm trying to understand the role my head tilt and eye position affect my ability to envision the target line in the full swing. I can pick a spot in front of the ball along the target line, set up square to it and my clubface appears closed/way left of my target once I get over it.  If I can't see my target line, I have no chance of making a committed swing.   I remember at some point reading about optics, head tilt, dominant eye, etc, but can't seem to find the article...
I just moved away from Callaway musclebacks to Mizuno MP59.  I loved the Callaways; gorgeous clubs and like shooting a bullet when flushed. However, there really is a big forgiveness difference with a cavity back and I just love my new clubs.  Immediately improved my game.  
Interesting stuff.  Takes a bit to comprehend and I don't fully understand the clockwise, counterclockwise thing, but I'm interested in trying out the concept of opposing pressure for putting/chipping.  
There really are no absolutes in golf.  It certainly depends on the hole, your position on the hole coming into the green, the position of the flag, etc., but I think I am with Harmonious on this one.  It's nice to at least develop a shot you are comfortable laying up to.   Although it may be preferable to be closer to the green , don't forget we're not just talking about the shot into the green, we're talking about the accuracy of the shot before it. A shot where you...
Found what I was looking for.  I should have known there was a "posture thread" somewhere:   The shoulders feeling rounded, inward and down, allows the chin to be down, which allows for the ball to be seen with central vision.  The eyes which are located in the head are what need to be stable or centrally foviated on the object to maintain the balance centers located in the eyes, ears, and muscular system.  When we are looking at the golf ball, and our head is down, we...
I can't imagine it is "normal."  When I have a good swing it feels effortless and balanced with no jerkiness. If I had to guess, you're body is fighting the club somehow. Maybe it's a path problem, maybe you're arms are separating in your follow through (think chicken wing.)   Hard to say without seeing a swing. You should video and post on the My Swing thread.
I remember reading a comment by mvmac in another thread talking about head/eye position where, I think, he recommended to someone that he get his eyes on more parallel line to the ball at address.  He said something to the effect that it gave him a "few other things for free" which I took to mean set him up to perform some other fundamentals more easily.  This was in regards to a full swing, not putting.     What is the 5ks theory on head/eye position at address?
