When you imagine the golf ball like a small flower and the grass whip cutting the stem or the tee as it were. You see a golf club is also a grass cutting tool, when you see and feel this your swing will be a lot more fluid and in balance if you feel the sole of the club cutting grass backwards and forwards in your golf swing motion.
