Hi Paul. I tend to move my head way too much in the backswing and also dipping down in the downswing. Any good tips to prevent this? Thanks:)
You need to move your head going back but you have to do this while keeping the weight on the instep of the back foot otherwise you will sway. So start focusing on the weight on the instep on a flexed back knee as you go back.

On the way down your head will drop due to your body angling behind the ball. This can be as much as 6 inches. This is what is supposed to happen if you are a better player. If you are not and it is dropping too much this would be happening because your arms are buckling. If so, they are shorter than the ones you started with at setup. So you drop to hit the ball. What you need to be doing is working on fixing the chicken wing and doing extension drills to get the arms extending.

Hi Paul, this is a vary good lesson for me, I tend to look for the ball, not for the position i end, i will try, hop for good improvement.
Glad you see it. I keep telling everyone it’s not about the ball. It is about developing a great swing. A great swing will hit great shots.

What faults would prevent us from getting to the touch the head position. I do touch my knees as per your instruction. However, my hands are only three quarters of the way at the completion of my swing. Suggestions?
If you are not doing the follow through you are hitting with your arms and way too tight. You are basically hitting the ball and not caring what happens after you hit the ball. Seen it a million times. What you need to be doing is physically taking the club and bringing it to the back of your head. Your swing is not over until it is touching. So even if it is long after the ball is gone take the the club and touch your head. Get it touching every time. Then start working on getting the clubshaft to touch. In other words take it in 2 steps. You have to start somewhere. If you just keep doing what you are doing it is never going to change.
I would also be doing 3 practice swings to every ball. So you tee up your ball. Stand away from it. Do 3 practice swings physically touching your head. Then step up and apply the very same feeling you just had in your practice swings. When doing this you don’t care about the ball or hitting good shots. All you have to do it focus on touching. I would also be doing practice swings every night at home. This way there is no ball to hit so you can focus on mastering the position.
Once you do this for a while it should go there on its own.
