GO­ING FOR THE GOLD

Golf Digest Middle East - - Play Your Best Driving -

Swing me­chan­ics mat­ter, but you can trick your­self into achiev­ing them by nail­ing your fin­ish. I like to call it “The Olympic 10,” like the ones gym­nasts do when they stick the land­ing from a vault. Make it a tight, bal­anced fin­ish po­si­tion, and you’ll get the ben­e­fit of mus­cle mem­ory of the good moves that led to it.

Stick this proud pose at the end by mak­ing a full turn back and through while stay­ing sta­ble—two big things that help al­most any swing. Be­sides, even if the shot didn’t come off ex­actly the way you wanted, you still look good do­ing it! Mag­gie Noel
