Polish Up Your Finish
End Your Swing The Right Way For Crisper Shots
|This Article Features Photo Zoom|
First, lets look at the finish in the larger photo. Looks good, right? Can you guess what type of shot this finish represents? If you guessed a fade, you're right. As you can see, I've rotated my body onto my left side, the clubshaft is behind me, and the hands are about as high as my head position. My left elbow is away from my body pointing behind me, meaning I didn't have a strong release of the hands. It's a great position for those who naturally fade the ball, and for those who battle with too much hook spin.
Despite the differences in my two finishes, both are in perfect balance, with my weight on my left side and my right heel off the ground. Keep those constants in mind, polish up your finish and start seeing better results.
