I am aware of the importance of eye line, but have not stressed it enough…or at all because I took it for granted.
I will no longer do that for myself or any students. We all worry about feet, hips, shoulders and club face lining up and we worry about our eyes being over the ball with the putter, but no one ever says anything about eye line on the setup and this has to stop.
If your eye line is incorrect, you will either make a path mistake down your incorrect eye line, and/or a manipulate across your eye line back to the target on the downswing.
It’s not hard to check it. Just setup and put a shaft across the bridge of your nose and see if your eye line matches your intended starting line/target line.
If you have a sore neck after hitting balls or playing golf, you have likely tilted your head and skewed where you are looking.
It’s this simple. You want your head and eyes to align to your spine as if you were standing up straight and looking ahead.
Many of you will be amazed at how far off you are and how funky it is going to feel when you get a friend to align your head and eyes properly…then you will be dumbfounded at how wonderful it makes you feel at impact and how much more smoothly your swing works.
