|Should she keep her head down?|
“In Golf’s Biggest Delusions: Nine Things People Say About the Game That Aren’t True—and One That Is,” the Wall Street Journal’s John Paul Newport attempts to dispel these and other so-called myths.
Spoiler: The one that’s true is “drive for show, putt for dough.” (But you knew that, right?) Newport provides compelling statistical data from the PGA Tour to substantiate the old saw.
No disrespect to Hank Haney, but I will say that, for me, keeping the head down (and still) has been a helpful golf swing tip through the years, even though I understand that it isn’t meant to be too literal. (The head does move and does come up after impact.)
