Learning how to locate your ball after hitting into sunny conditions may be among the best golf instruction you will ever receive.
The reason why it is among the best golf instruction is that it saves a lot of wasted time and frustration when searching for a ball after hitting into sunny conditions.
Fortunately, there is a technique to not only locate the direction and pattern a ball has flown when hit into sunny conditions but also the approximate distance to it. This holds true whether the golfer in question hit a fade, hit a draw, hit a hook, hit a slice or hit the golf ball straight.
If you have too much sun in your eyes or, vision impaired in some way, to see the flight of your ball, there is a unique technique to determine the direction of your ball and approximately where it landed.
Simply follow these steps:
1. Maintain your follow-through and posture.
2. Close your left eye if right-handed or your right eye if left-handed and then
turn your head in the direction of your target while immobilizing your body.
3. The direction your open eye points (sees) will be the direction your ball flew.
4. Also, by knowing the relative distance of the club in use you will know approximately where your ball landed.
The most significant benefits of this golf method is to know whether you hit your ball in the direction of your target, hooked or pulled it to the inside
of your body line, or sliced or pushed it to the outside of your body line.
It also could save you a lot of lost time in an otherwise attempt to locate your ball.
Try this technique when hitting into the sun and unable to locate where your ball landed.
It could be some of the very best golf instruction you will ever receive.
