Fixing Common Mistakes - Looking Up

Looking Up

Probably the most common swing flaw for most golfers is looking up before the ball has been hit. Looking up to watch your ball will ruin any chance you have of hitting a good shot. If you don't remedy this flaw you'll never play up to your potential. It takes a lot of discipline to keep your head down and still but if you master the impulse to watch your shot you'll start hitting the ball solidly and straight.

If you watch pros when they hit putts, chips or pitches you'll notice they don't look up to follow the ball until the stroke is finished. By the time they look up the shot is well on its way and nothing they do from that point can have any effect on the shot.

On putts try the following the next time you're on the practice green. Line up your putt and hit it the way you normally would. Only this time don't look up to follow your putt at all. Instead listen for the sound of the ball falling into the hole. Start 3 feet from the hole and work your way out. You'll be amazed at how often you'll sink the putt.

On chips and pitches concentrate on the spot where the ball was lying before you hit it and keep your eyes on that spot until the ball is well gone. Only then should you look up to see where your ball has gone. Use the same method for your longer irons and woods. Concentrate on keeping your eye on the spot until the ball is long gone. If you do this you'll see a vast improvement in every aspect of your game.
