One of the ways you can make your golf swing consistent is to have a consistent backswing where you are swinging to the same point every time.
Over the years, I have found that image swing thoughts work the best to achieve the desired consistency above all other as your brain somehow manages to get your muscles right when you think of an “image”.
So what is this image?
Well, I will let you on a little secret. For me, I imagine my hands about level with my eyes above my shoulders. When I imagine my hands being in that certain position, I inevitably swing back correctly with my body. From there, it’s piece of cake, just rip through the ball and same results every time.
Imagery is probably the most under-rated forms of swing thoughts, stuff that can actually hold up under pressure.
Instead of thinking, “keep my head down”, see an image of your head being in the position where you want while you swing.
Instead of thinking, “follow through”, see an image of yourself following through the golf ball while you swing through the ball.
You see, swing thoughts are only good if you can make an image of it. I assure you, this results in more consistency in you golf swing.
P.S. My golf swing is coming back a bit, today I hit the golf ball really far, I will be playing for Pepsi Tour mini tournaments probably starting in July, wish me luck!
