Video Golf Tip | Sam Snead Perfect Finish

Sam Snead is widely considered to have the greatest swing in the history of the game of golf. The reason is the tempo, the timing, the effortless look that Snead had, and the great shots that he hit time after time. One component of Snead's swing that may stand out to many people is his finish where he went all the way through to that perfect Sam Snead finish that has been copied by so many people. It looked like this, all the way through, the club goes through to the back of the neck, he finishes with his hands well over to the left of the body for the right handed golfer and he is totally in balance. By that I mean that he stuck his finish. I call it sticking the finish like a gymnast when they stick their finish and Sam did that all the time. He might hold that finish for three or four seconds. So how do you do it? Well, it takes some freedom in your hands and arms and it takes rotation of your body to get all the way over there and through. You have to have a commitment to the finish of the golf swing. Your belt buckle will point even to the left of that target and up on to that right toe. So visualize how Sam went to that finish. You can still see it many magazines and film. He is just one of the most beautiful people to watch and copy. Make sure to really focus on that finish.
