GOLF SWING TIPS: DETERMINE YOUR BALL LOCATION WHEN HITTING IN THE DIRECTION OF THE SUN

golf swing tipsOne of the best golf swing tips is to know how to determine the direction and location of your ball when you cannot see it land because of hitting in the direction of the sun.

Frequently on bright sunny days, especially when hitting directly into the sun, it sometimes is difficult to see the flight of the ball. It will be very helpful in such a circumstance to know whether you hit the golf ball straight or curved it in one direction or the other.

It also is difficult to see the flight of the ball as an older player when one’s vision is not as keen as in younger days.

In either case, there is a technique to determine the direction of your ball and approximately where it lands.

Simply follow these steps:

STEP 1: Maintain your follow-through and posture.

STEP 2: Close your left eye if right-handed or your right eye if left-handed.

STEP 3: The direction in which your open eye points (sees) will be the direction in which your ball flew and the line on which it landed.

If you know the relative distance of the club in your hand in such instance, you also should know approximately the location of your ball.

Obviously, if you can determine the line of your ball flight and approximately where it landed by using this technique, it can save you an appreciable amount of time in searching for your ball.

Most importantly, It should give you an indication as to whether you hit the golf ball straight or curved it in one direction or the other.

Attempting to locate a ball that curved in the opposite direction from the one being searched is not only frustrating for your group as well as the group following you but,  a colossal waste of time.

Use this unique technique to determine the direction and location of your ball if you are unable to see its direction and pattern because of a lack of vision or because of hitting into the sun.

If you do, you may agree that knowing this technique may be one of the best golf swing tips around.
