I wonder how it looks on video.
If you're looking at the ball and allowing your head to follow the shot, you may not be looking up prematurely... just not staying down too long artificially.
You DO have to look at the ball, but the moment you hit your head goes around in a way that your body keeps on turning ahead and you keep a good balance. Check Annika's swing sequence.
Allow me to elaborate.
What I've found with the full swing is if I follow the ball with my eyes I no longer slide my hip through the ball, which has always been my most serious technical flaw. If you check on Annika, you'll notice the head turning with the rest of the body. That's what I feel happens with my swing. It's an anti-slide motion. And the swing becomes so silky, refreshing almost. Lots of speed, zero tension, good compression and solid contact.
Now the caveat. I've had the same swing for around 30 years with minor adjustments. I work mostly on rythm and tempo and revise the fundamentals so if you tinker with your swing too often you'll find it difficult to add this head motion. This is my amateur experience, guys. Instructors can cast a better and professional light.
