Breaking 70: Consistency starts before you swing the club Created on 2/1/2005 12:00:00 AM
Swing in due time
What's your swing time?
It takes me 11 seconds to address the ball, waggle, look at the target and then hit the shot. How do I know this?
I once had it checked, and it's now ingrained so it takes me the same amount of time every time. Standing over the ball, I don't want to think about anything but the shot. Assess the lie, distance and conditions before you address the ball. And then your only thought will be the shot at hand.
