    I cannot get this video to play. Would you talk about how to finish up on my right toe? At best, i finish with a bend in the right toe. Video’s of my swing from years ago indicate that my left hips bows out on the downswing and my head then flops to the right before impact. Should i force more of my weight to the outside of my left foot on the downswing on my practice strokes until it occurs automatically? Same thing for the finish position of the shaft? (Horizontally across back of head) My finish has the handle on the shaft much higher than the clubhead.

    Hi Paul.

    I’m starting to get back out to make some swings. Has been almost ten weeks of rehab. I’m going to start with the finish. I’m looking for your “checklist” videos you did last year…but I think the title is something different as I’m not finding checklist…they were almost like powerpoint slides/ photos with your narration.

    Also, anything up on the site or any thoughts about finishing TALL and taking the pressure off the lower back? We talked about the latter at the school last summer.

    Thanks, Craig Smith

      Glad you’re back. Just be careful.

      Also, the checklist ones aren’t in a particular place. Just type in any search box: CHECKPOINTS and they will all come up. With my follow through you would only be on a slight tilt when you are done which does not hurt your back. Don’t finish vertical or you will hit the ball thin or top it.

      Spine Angle Follow Through:

      Take it slow. Do lots of practice swings as opposed to hitting a ton of balls.

    I just sent you an email asking this question about the right toe at finish. You just answered it in this video so you could Ignore it. Thanks for this!

    Questions for you.

    Is it correct that I just need to think about making a circular motion on my big toe of the back leg when I am at the top of the backswing if I use back leg as the downswing trigger?

    If the answer above is correct, is it true that I feel that I just make a circular motion along with the curve the shoes toe using my big toe?

      Yes, as some golfers that I see make their back foot go towards the golf ball vs letting it follow the curvature of your shoe. It should be happening naturally when you use your lower body in a circular motion. Keep thinking circular with your lower body and then if you do find that your foot is going more in front of you vs letting it turn naturally then you can work on this.
