      Why? The tip is about the club splitting the ears not what the feet are doing. Watch some of the other Follow Through tips on the other positions to understand the lower body action.

    Paul,Should this “Finish”position be adopted for the shorter shots Like when you pitch within 50 yards or exit from the sand ,or do you counsel an “abbreviated ” position ?

      If you are doing a full swing the follow through should be complete and consistent. If you are hitting 3/4 pitch shots and less then you would abbreviate your follow through.

    G’day Paul,
    Thanks for this simple and effective tip. I practiced this on the back deck and immediately the ‘light switched on’, I had been loosing
    my spine angle in the follow through. The weight on the string was not rotating at 90degs into the follow through. The shaft had been hitting the side of my head (at best) rather than parallel to the eyes. With the constant forward tilt I got that light touch on the back of the head.
    On the course, I hit a few errant shots incorporating this into my swing, usual stuff with something different for the first time. With my downswing trigger combined with the forward tilt into the finish I got a better release. I started using my 9 iron where I had been using an 8 or 7 iron.

      That’s great. I keep stressing how important this position is. I wonder how many are listening? I know you are.

    Paul ,
    One interesting part of your teaching is THE assimilation you make of THE clubhead and shaft attached to a string rotating at. 90

      And I have had followers of that system bad mouth me on other boards. Funny how people with no clue what I teach feel compelled to try to bring me down.

      The problem with just swinging the clubhead is that you do not know where the clubhead is going to end up so in 2 seconds you will be back to whacking at the ball. I do like the fact they want you to be loose and allow the clubhead to swing wherever it wants but as I said, you need specific points with feedback to tell you if you are doing them right or not. This way you can repeat the motion and it never falls apart.
