The old golf adage “keep your head down” can be a downright disaster because it can produce some nasty side effects. What that advice is really trying to get you to do is to maintain your spine angle throughout the swing… rotating around that imaginary rod that goes down your back, out your tail and all the way to the ground when you set up at address.
