In this series on full shot technique we now come to the very last part of the swing, a full and balanced finish.
Bob McDonald ends his six part series on the golf swing.
It has been said has been said that
it doesn't matter where you finish but I have to disagree.
The purpose of a well-balanced correct finish allows us to evaluate the quality of the swing and thus the shot and to evaluate what went on before.
From the previous lesson #5, impact and early release, continue the unwind until:
• The belt buckle faces the target (or slightly past) and you are standing tall with your eyes facing the target.
• You are fully balanced on your left Leg. Head should be ‘on top of' your left shoe and 99% of your weight on left foot.
• Knees should be touching and just the toe tip of your right foot is touching the ground. From down the line view we can see the spikes of right foot.
DO NOT, PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO KEEP YOUR HEAD DOWN!
Summary Building blocks, review backwards.
• You will have a great finish ‘Lesson 6' if you were in the correct position in lesson 5 - impact and early follow through.
• You will be correct at 5, if you were correct in lesson 4 - start of the down stroke.
• You will learn to be correct at 4 if you were correct at lesson 3 - top of the backswing.
• You will be correct at 3 if you were correct at lesson 2 - start of the swing and you will be able to be correct at lesson 2 it you were correct at lesson 1 the Set Up. So as you can see each lesson builds upon the previous lesson with the result that your swing is a chain reaction.
