  1. These are some great tips, and I appreciate your advice to avoid raising your head too soon when swinging. I recently started playing golf because my in-laws love the sport, but I’m not great at it yet, and I want to improve. I think I keep looking up too quickly to see where my shot went, so I’ll definitely try to resist doing that to improve my swing. Thanks for the great post!
