The Correct Golf Swing Finish Position to Keep Your Balance

By John Elliott, Jr.

Let’s have some fun with your finish; we can call it a Cool Finish. All of us want to be cool, whether you are twelve years old or 70 two years old. There is something about the word cool. Watch, this is a cool but also productive, balanced finish.

Keep Your Balance As You Finish Your Swing

Finish your swing with your weight on your front side and hold it for a second. Then as a second step bring your club back down to waist level for one second and finally let the club slide down your left hand through your fingers. When you get your club in the left hand you should find it on the balance point of the two center fingers of that hand, evenly weighted front to back.

Looking Cool in Your Swing Finish

By being cool in the finish you have helped your rhythm, your balance and your timing. You look good which makes other people think you are good, which is not all that bad, because if they think you are good then maybe you will think you are good. If so then we all win. Be cool, it works.
