This might seem like a natural thing, but I notice recently that I do not always finish my golf swing high or in the right position. I am not sure why I do this from time to time, but it happens and generally the results are not good. It happens with all my clubs except my putter and I cannot, for the life of me, think of why I do this!
After some research, I noticed an interesting view that the finish and follow through are not necessarily connected. They are two different movements and one is far more important than another. Have a look:
I understand the view of Andrew, however I think that they are a little more connected for my swing. I find when I finish high (club and or hands in the nape of my neck) the results are very good. I make solid contact and hit the ball straight on target. When I do not finish high, all sorts of crazy things happen. Hank describes it very well for my swing:
After a fair bit of research, I think that I rush my shots sometimes and end up casting my club early. I lose power and as a result distance by not holding right angle position at my right hip. This is something I need to work on at the range.
The challenge of follow through and a high finish are not all the time, but about 3 or 4 times a round. This poor shot usually results in a bogey or double; so I definitely want to address these wayward shots. It is not something to panic about because there are some rounds when it does not happen, it just creeps in and want it to stop.
Do you have the same follow through and finish for every swing?
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
