Key Stage Five of The Golf Swing


Swing Completion, holding a solid and balanced finish

Always try to get a balanced finish with a minimum of 90% of your body weight on your left side, evenly positioned between your heel and ball of your leading foot.

Being mindful of holding a balanced finish for at least 3 seconds will help to encourage you to complete your swing and keep that head speed up and increase your control and distance.

A great finish position and rhythm will be a bi-product of linking all the other keys together.

The reverse is also true.

The more you work on holding the correct finish for a few seconds regardless of the outcome of the shot it will encourage a better motion that has gone before it.

Particularly with the driver, you may also develop what is known as recoil. This is a bi-product of creating greater club head speed through impact and beyond.

With such power going through impact it’s tough to hold your finish so this recoil or bounce back action is perfectly natural and is where the club is brought back down in front of you at your finish. If this recoil starts to happen don’t fight against it.

It’s good proof of generating great club head speed and acceleration.

How To Drive For Show

It’s time you stopped missing the fairway, got more distance off the tee and did it more often.

You’ve probably heard the phrase Drive For Show, Putt For Dough…

How much money do you think you would win if it takes you four shots before you reach the green?

Being able to hit the driver well requires a quality action and great timing.

When you hit a golf ball, one thing always remains constant and that is the 5 Laws and these represent how the club head is delivered to the ball at impact.

These laws are what cause the ball flight and spin

If You would you like to add distance to your drives and hit them longer and straighter, more often
