I am definitely going to make one of those things to keep my head in place because that is something I really would like to change (if possible) just to look more normal.
Sometimes when I try to change something I find that there is a reason I am doing it that way, and it almost always relates to an old left leg injury I've learned to live with (and play sports with) for a long time.
The most serious part of the injury is that my left lower leg is partially paralyzed and causes balance issues if I let any weight shift to the outside of that foot. I flare that foot quite a bit to keep it from happening. I think (but not sure yet) that is also the reason that I never let the center of my hips get in front of my head. On all of my swings I ever looked at my head, belt buckle, and hips are in a vertical line at impact. Very few if any good players do that.
(Or I am just staying in a position to get out of the batter's box faster). Hahaha!
Another problem I have (which is opposite of what you mentioned) is that my club comes into the ball so shallow that it is a disadvantage in grassy lies or when the ball is sitting down even a little. Off of very short fairway grass it's not a problem and my favorite surface to hit off of is baked out hard pan, or anything else hard. I could hit balls all day long off of hardpan and never mess it up. I can put a tee in the ground a foot behind the ball only sticking out of the ground a half inch and I will clip that tee before impact every time on a normal swing. On the higher priced and better maintained courses I occasionally play that is not a problem. On the main course I play it becomes a huge problem because the fairway grass is so high.
That course should be very easy but the long grass makes it harder for me than some courses with a much higher course rating. I shot a 76 last summer from the tips at Capstone and if I remember right that course rating is about a 73 or 74. The course I play isn't course rated but if it was it would probably be about a 64, and yet I usually shoot in the mid 70s on that "easy" course. SMH
Every shot off of those closely mowed fairways at Capstone seemed like a piece of cake.
My son currently has a +1.5 handicap and he has no problem with the grassy lies because even though he has a flatter looking swing than I do he would never clip a tee a foot behind the ball (like I do) and the club is actually coming into the ball steeper than mine.
