Where your head position should be for every type of golf shot

**Head Position for Optimal Golf Shots**

Your head position plays a vital role in executing successful golf shots. Here’s a quick guide:

**Driver:** Keep your head behind the ball, allowing the club to get under it and create lift.

**Irons:** Position your head slightly behind the ball for a descending blow, promoting accuracy and distance control.

**Wedges:** Move your head directly over the ball, encouraging a compact, downward strike for maximum spin and precision around the greens.

**Putting:** Keep your head low and steady, maintaining your focus on the line of the putt. This helps ensure a smooth and accurate stroke.

Proper head positioning empowers you to consistently make solid contact and achieve optimal shot trajectory.

Scottie Scheffler made his worst score of the year. Guess what happened next?

Scottie Scheffler made his worst score of the year in the first round of the Charles Schwab Challenge. He shot a 2-over-par 72, his worst score since the opening round of the Masters. But Scheffler didn’t let that get him down. He bounced back with a 6-under-par 64 in the second round to put himself back in contention.

Scheffler’s resilience is a testament to his mental toughness. He’s one of the most mentally strong players on tour, and he’s always able to stay positive even when things aren’t going his way. That’s a valuable asset in golf, where rounds can turn on a dime.

Another week, another explosive golf story. While it’s consumed much of the recent airtime in the insular world of professional golf, a less publicized but mostly positive evolution continues quietly in the background that could play a pivotal role in the future of the sport.

It suggests that the 26-year-old is entering the prime of his career and could dominate the sport for years to come.

However, a recent incident involving Scheffler has once again highlighted the need for the PGA Tour to find new ways to generate excitement. The tour has been struggling to keep up with the popularity of other sports, and Scheffler’s scandal has only made matters worse.
