This is possibly the most important advice I offer our students at the IRGO Golf Academy.
My extensive commercial pilot training and experience teaching this discipline and its skills brought me to clearly understand that the eyes are not only the window to the soul but, at times, the only reliable sense.
Our eyes are a marvelous and central function in making a reliable golf swing with solid impact. If we see the ball well, we can get the sweet spot of the clubhead stuck firmly on the little white ball.
Hand-eye coordination is a reality. If we cut our hands off, golf is over. Equally, if we close our eyes, golf is over. If we are not looking at the ball at impact, we might as well have our eyes closed. If we look toward the target during impact, the ball will be in the bush.
See the golf ball come off the clubface. You will love the sensation. Even more, you will love the results. The ball will go where your feet point. More on this topic in the next tip.

The two-DVD set, which costs $79.95, is broken down into six sections and is very well organized, Mike Bailey writes.
