when taking back swing do you still keep eyes on the ball or a spot behind the ball

If its with and iron I will focus on the front of the ball or about 1 inch in front of the ball so I'm sure to get a downward angle of attack. High wedges shots I'll focus on the rear of the ball. Be careful that you don't have your head too far behind the ball with the irons.

Sacto83,

You mention to be careful not to have the head too far behind the ball for the irons - why? I've hit about 600-800 practice balls working on the MGS and I've noticed quite a few hits towards the heel. Could this be causing it? Funny - but I'll either hit it very pure or kind of off the heel with this technique - never experienced that before in 35 years of playing.

Yes, you will have heel shots if you preturned too far behind the ball. I mentioned this in one of the Review sections when doing my testing.

When the head is moved too much behind the ball with the irons, you can have hand and clubhead path the is too much inside to out and heel contact will result.

Make sure you don't forward bend too much before you do the preturn. Once you have preturned, check that the head is not behind the right knee. When performing the DS make sure you are pivoting, not just swinging the arms, and that the rotation (pivot) takes place between your feet. You can't do this properly if your torso and head are too far to the right.

Sacto83,

Thanks again...that advice did it... thinking back to yesterday's practice session: the shots that I did hit pure yesterday happened when I rotated and didn't just "fling" by arms out to the right. Also, when I adjusted my head position and made my "twist" less exagerated (i.e. less bend from the waist, head not as far to the right, and weight more centered) - I definitely hit it much better with no heel hits.
