Just wondering if anyone has any drills or info on keeping your head still. I have a problem dipping my head in my backswing then picking it up on my downswing. I would say it is around a 3 to 4 inch dip. I feel I would emiminate some of thoes bad shots if I learn to keep my head from dipping. Does anyone have any tips or anything?

I have this exact problem. It's definitely the Queen Bee of all my swing inconsistencies. I tried doing that chair drill, but it didn't really work for me. Here it is if you want to try it out:

I've just tried putting my head against the wall and making my shoulder turn. I'm trying to get my body to get used to that feeling, but it's definitely tough.

Anyone have any good drills or stretches they do to battle this problem?

I struggle with this too, but I don't focus on my head, the head is only moving because the spine is dipping. Which is where the problem is, my spine dipping. I find it easier to work on keeping my spine still than keeping the head still. I don't want to keep it 100% still anyways, on the downswing I will dip a bit to get to the ball. Shorter backswing is useful, dipping is often a result of rotating the arms so far it's starting to push the spine down.

paula creamer and natalie gulbis seem to do pretty well with the head dip. although i do know for a fact natalie is workin with harmon to slowly remove it.

That's right, pretty heavy dip on both of them. They play well, but I can only imagine that this will cause more bad shots than they need.

Pretty pecuilar swings anyways, but they make it work.

Glad to know I'm not the only one who cannot get rid of it no matter what I try. I'm going to head out tomorrow morning and see what I can do with it. I'm going to give that chair thing a try but just with my golf stand bag because I seen something on The Golf Fix where he used the bag for the same type of drill. I will let yall know if it works or if I find something that does.

From time to time I've done this too. I realized I did it when I tried to swing to hard. For me, it was just to beware I'm doing it and hold my head up and not rush my swing.


Try this: Be aware of your dip and try to hold your head up and in the same position while not to ground the club just before your back swing.

    • If I am understanding this correctly, I've been able to, for over two and a half years now, move stones in bunkers, as long as doing so doesn't move my ball, same as I can do on the fairway or in the rough?   I either missed this entirely or forgot about it.   
    • It was explained to me that they wanted people to remove stones, but not to give them so much freedom that they  could just go messing about willy nilly and moving their ball. So, what they came up with did that.
    • Previously the LR caused a stone to be treated like a MO in all respects. Now the rule doesn't.  Why not?  Why shouldn't the Rule simply deem a stone in a bunker as either a LI or treat it by Rule as one? A safety conscious player could incur a penalty for being safe about a stone but not a walnut. 
    • This argument is like saying that someone who wins the first two games in a best of three competition hasn't won because there were two rounds and not three.
