How to Evaluate Your Golf Swing Finish Position to Perfect Your Rotary Swing Shape

How to Evaluate Your Golf Swing Finish Position to Perfect Your Rotary Swing Shape

So how do you know if you’re getting it? How do you know if your swing shape is coming around like you wanted to? How do you if it’s getting rounded enough? You know what, you can check your finish. Watch my finish position.

How to Check Your Rotary Swing

Did you notice how I can finish in balance? How did I do that when you move through the shot? Especially when you’re hitting an actual ball and you’re going so fast?

  • You have to be moving into the shot and getting to your left side.
  • You notice how my head is staying back a little bit.
  • My arms are nice and free and their wanting that club to square up like this.
  • I’m moving on to my left side and that’s what you need to do to.

Your finish will be like a report card for what you did in your golf swing. If you made a swing that was too up and down, you’ll probably bobble and your weight will be on your toes. It won’t be all the way on to your left side. If you made a swing with all arms and you didn’t use your body pivot correctly. You’ll probably end up with a finish where your arms are way low over here and not finishing up above your shoulder. Watch my finish again.

Correct Finish for a Golf Swing

When you finish correctly, you should be able to hold your pose. Your weight should be all the way on the left side, no weight back on your right. Your hands should be above your shoulder, those are all good checkpoints. Your club should be at an angle. All of those indicators tell us that you’re probably gaining consistency, gaining distance and hitting a lot of straight shots on the golf course. You’re going to have fun if you can practice holding your pose.
