Why keeping your head down too long is NOT good for your swingTake an afternoon and observe the golfers at your local driving range. No more than five-minutes will pass before one of them hits a poor shot and is then told by his friend to keep his head down. The idea of keeping one’s head down may at first seem like a logical concept, but most golfers take this idea to the extreme and end up staying bent over for too long. This causes the golfer to have a difficult time making consistent contact.
3D motion capture demonstrates that the best players in the world are actually less bent over at impact than they were at address, and that they are certainly not keeping their heads down after impact.
