Golf Tip Tuesday: Keep Your Eye on the Ball

Okay, so it sounds so basic, right? Just keep your eye on the ball.

But it's not that easy.

You want to look where it's going to go so you pick up your head before you actually hit the ball.

The problem is, when you do that, you're likely to lift your arms and shoulders. And if you lift your arms and shoulders, even just a little, you might ::gasp:: whiff. Whiffing in front of witnesses is about the worst thing you can do in golf. Even hitting the ball out of bounds is better--because in that situation, you actually hit the ball.

So, the tip today, is keep your eye on the ball.

This makes for a great metaphor, actually.

I agree with Matthew, keeping an eye on the ball, staying focused... applies to everything in life, esp. writing!
