I started working on this last year, and my first thought was 'What the hell have I been looking at for the last 20 years? Because it certainly wasn't the ball.'
Great tip!

TBH the times when I force myself to do this my strokes are at least 10% cleaner!

We can all improve this area on all of our strokes.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.
