A question of balance


There are times when golf is a struggle. You love playing but things just don’t seem to be working out. Your drives are a bit inconsistent, and the normally reliable short game lapses into that of a beginner. All the tinkering with grip, set up, alignment and swing doesn’t bring sustained improvement.


After a three-month layoff my game was off.  I was still hitting the ball OK at times, but ball striking was inconsistent. There were too many fluffed shots. Despite my efforts I could not find the answer.

Sometimes another set of eyes, or a different perspective, is needed.  I got that when my wife chronicled a round with our digital camera.

On poor shots one of two faults were obvious  – my balance was poor, or my head came up too early.  I now know what to work on.
