There are few things in golf that I consider a constant. One is keeping my head still during all of my golf swings and another is to watch my club make contact with the ball. These all seem very basic and natural to a seasoned player, but they are lessons I must relearn from time to time. Another constant for a successful golf swing is my follow through. The reason it is so important is that it is my first indicator that I have trouble with my golf swing.
My follow through must finish high at the nape of my neck; this is a constant for my golf swing. It is one of the aspects of my game I continue to focus on when I play. But, the follow through is much more important than just on regular shots. It plays a critical roll on my chips, putts and most of all, sand shots!
The follow through makes or breaks all sand shots. If there is one thing I know, espouse, and teach is that a high follow through out of the sand is the key to successful sand shots.
The challenge most amateurs have is we stab at the ball instead of swinging through the ball. This important sand technique of swinging through the ball is only accomplished by a high follow through. The follow through is what creates that professional splash we all want.
The follow through is one of the critical factors to a great golf swing. It finishes regular swings and ensures great contact on delicate shots. I constantly work on my follow through because it is one of the keys to my golf game.
How important is your follow through to your golf swing?
