So some of you may have read my other posts from the past few days. I've been posting a lot lately. I'm fairly new to the game and very determined to master it! Or at least work my way to a single digit handicap.
My previous posts have been about my wrist hinge, and connection. I just came back from the range and tried early wrist setting to help shorten my backswing, and stay on plane based on some of your suggestions. Unfortunately, nothing seemed to be working, and I felt extremely uncomfortable.
After a number of shanks, pulls, slices, etc, I finally just slowed everything down tremendously, and made sure to keep my head behind the ball at impact. Surprisingly, my shots were crisp, had great ball flight, great contact, and most of all I was consistently hitting some nice solid shots by keeping my head behind the ball and still. I still hinged my wrist fairly early in the back swing (just before the club got to waste high) so not really pre-setting them at address, but definitely earlier than I was doing before.
Does anyone have any thoughts/tips on the importance of keeping my head still and behind the ball at impact. It just seemed like I was hitting great shots so effortlessly if I just slowed my swing down and made sure to keep the head back.
