A: The Halo: Notice how Annika's spine and shoulders form a "T." This is a huge key for hitting straight shots. Build the "T" by keeping your chin in line with your sternum as you turn through impact. Feel like you're wearing a neck brace or "halo." Your rhythm and consistency will improve in an instant.
B: The Trademark: In traditional swings, the head stops moving during impact, which can force the hands to take over and move the club offline or manipulate the clubface. Annika's early head release keeps her hands passive, a critical key to playing under pressure.
C: The Space: Annika's fantastic path into the ball allows her to "let go" through impact. There's no holding or steering the club. When combined with a flawless path, this creates space between her hands and her body, and this space means extra power.
How to hit consistent shots: If there's one thing to take away from Annika's swing, it's the complete lack of strain she places on her body. It's a by-product of her trademark move: rotating her head and eyes toward the target through impact. This early release allows her shoulders to rotate through the hitting area on a flatter plane with a minimum of side tilt (resulting in the vertical right side in Frame 6). If you're a chronic slicer, this is the move for you.
