HITTING DOWN ON A GOLF BALL AND OVERCOMING THE ILLUSION OF ROUND

The MONGOOSE GOLF SWING is about hitting DOWN DOWN DOWN DOWN DOWN on the golf ball. DOWN is the key word. Why is this so difficult? The problem is how our eyes react to roundness - to hitting down on something ROUND. The brain says "WHERE" do I hit it? I want you to imagine the golf ball as FLAT. Tbe brain doesn't know if it's ROUND or FLAT. Recall that only recently man learned the earth was round. Went from FLAT to ROUND overnight (ole Gallileo and his telescipe huh?). 

FLAT. The ball is FLAT. FLAT FLAT FLAT FLAT FLAT as a pancake. FLAT as the deck of aircraft carrier. FLAT as an ironing board. FLAT. See the golf ball is flat. 

Now I'm telling you to imagine a line drawn a third of the way across the flat surface - (measure from the right if right-handed - from the left if left-handed). See it? Make the line thick (an 1/8 of an inch is fine) so you can't miss it. I mean you're just imagining it right? 

NOW that you've deceived your own brain - the sky's the limit. You see when you hit DOWN on a golf ball - you know the FLAT one lying there in front of your feet - the ball goes UP into the sky. How that happens is for another post.
