The Defining Moment That Improved My Golf Game

There are probably over a hundred defining moments in my younger days that helped me play better golf. The one that stands out in my mind would be when I realized that “staying behind the ball” would allow my driver to square up at impact. My problem at the time was moving ahead of the ball, which caused me to hit weak slices. By keeping my head behind the ball and creating more of a rear tilting spine angle at impact, the driver squared up and produced longer, straighter shots. This, in turn, allowed me to keep the ball in play, and my scores began to improve. Needless to say, this is still a primary swing thought even today, literally decades later.
