  1. Hi Mike, I notice that on your back swing your head moves to the right, so many coaches emphasis about keeping the head centred around an axis and moving it right is a no-no… personally I find keeping it centred hard with a full extended back swing, is this something for a fit and supple 25-30 year old and us more mature players (I'm an active 63) can have a little head movement, although not a sway?…thanks, enjoy your content…Ian (UK)

  2. Obviously you see I have two passions golfing and mountain biking…lol
    Thanks so much Mike for the great tips and drills will get to work practicing these.
    I will work on getting some video to you in the next couple of weeks so you can see what’s going on firsthand.
