Here is very simple drill to check whether or not you are on the “Swing Plane” you want to swing on.  In reality, you are trying to move the sweet spot and hand path into and through the golf ball.

Tiger Woods undoubtedly has the strongest mental toughness in golf.

This was instilled in him at an early age by his father Earl. Earl would stand behind him and drop clubs, cough, make noises just as Tiger was starting his downswing all to prepare him for distractions that would arise from playing tournament golf.

You can see it today in Tiger’s game. Who else can stop their swing in the start down like Tiger, give that offender that icy stare and then get up and hammer the golf ball!
