What I will do during practice & warmup is over correct, meaning I will watch the ball to the contact point, hit the ball, then force myself to 'keep my head down' while I count 'one-thousand-one'. If I see the ball clearing the net, then I know I pulled up too quickly.


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.
