Eric Hogge, a PGA member and instructor in Port St. Lucie, Fl, shows you how the old adage of “Lifting your head” is, in fact, not the head at all! It’s your rear end! Yes, your butt pushes forward on the downswing, thus causing the spine to straighten. As your head is attached to your spine (hopefully), the head comes up. Here is a great drill to help you keep your spine angle through impact! What will this, do you ask? Help you to hit it further and straighter!
Place a golf bag behind you and allow your butt to touch your bag at the address. Then, while swinging the club, keep the butt against the bag. This will guarantee that you will stay in your spine angle!
