Watch Clubhead And Ball Collide

We have all heard it. The well-intentioned advice of “keep your head down.” Keeping your head down in a static sense is an unnatural and tense position, so let’s say “watch the clubhead and ball collide” instead.

This is because keeping your head down rigidly restricts the free swinging motion of your body through the ball. You could easily wind up hitting at the ball rather than swinging through it.

Again, strive to “watch the collision” of the clubhead and ball. This thought will help keep your spine angle constant and your focus of attention on the ball. When the weight shifts and the rotation of the body occurs, the right shoulder passing under your chin will help your head come up after impact so that you can follow the flight of the ball, getting to the optimal balanced finish position.

Remember, impact occurs during the swing, not at the end of it. Let the ball get in the way of the swing by watching the collision, not by keeping your head down. We want to look at that great shot after we hit it, not while we are hitting it.

Funday Sunday Outdoor Concert Series

Northern Sun Winery is hosting Small Potatoes on Sunday June 16th.  Minimum ticket donation is $10 in advance and $15 at the door and include a vineyard and wine cellar tour at 3pm et, two wine samples and music at 4pm.  Bring a blanket, picnic and/or friends you will have a great time.  No carry ins allowed.   Small Potatoes, a Chicago based folk duo of Jacquie Manning and Rich Prezioso say it has taken them years of careful indecision to develop a repertoire they describe as "Celtic to Cowboy." Superb musicianship and showmanship, award-winning songwriting, and a strong sense of tradition has made them, as Dirty Linen Magazine once said, "one of the most polished, inventive, and entertaining shows on the circuit." .  100% of the ticket proceeds will be donated to Clear Lake Education Center connecting people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds to the natural world. Tickets for Small Potatoes at Northern Sun Winery Outdoor Concert Series are available at Northern Sun Winery, Delta County Chamber of Commerce, or
