Let’s talk about the perfect follow through and finish position. I want to talk about where you should be in the follow through and at the finish position with both the golf club and your body.

When you swing a golf club, it's more or less designed to work in a circle around your body. The clubhead works up and in on the entire backswing, down and out during the downswing and then back up and in during the follow through.

If I take my normal setup and I draw a line up the shaft, I want it – more or less – parallel to that plane line during my backswing, parallel to it during my downswing and to get back parallel to it on to my follow through.

Now most of that happens just because of how my body turns. When I make a backswing, I turn my body away from the target so my hands should go in and up. In the follow through, I turn towards the target, so my hands should in and up. That’s the main concept that we're going for here.

Past impact – when the club is at first parallel – I'm looking for the club to be about on my heel line. By the time I get to arms parallel in the follow through, I want my upper body, chest and shoulders and hips fully turned towards the target.

if you're someone who normally gets a little too over the top and exits too far to the left, I would set up a practice station with an object to the left of the target line. That's a block that's in my way that I need to learn to swing the club to the right of.

If you’re the other golfer who swings too far inside out, you can use the same station. You just adjust the setup. If you're normally too far right, you want to put an object up to the righ of the target line that’s in your way.


To start the practice, use a short iron and make a half swing at half speed. Get a feel, give yourself feedback with video, confirm what you’re doing and continue to give yourself feedback until you get where you want to go.

Bernd Dreilich says:

Absolutely nailed the points! Love your videos on these fundamentals!

golfergal says:

As usual, a fabulous lesson. I play your lessons while I practice in my living room with my Spornia net! Thank you!

golfergal says:

Eric you are awesome!

Tell Williams says:

Can you please do a video on showing us the swing of Bryson DeChambeau and does his chefs get more flexible for the three and four iron

Joshua Zwilling says:

Love the video. After watching all your videos I feel like I should go out and be under par every round!

Oliver Ritim says:

I been swinging inside to out for many years and I've tried to swing more to the left to equalize my follow through with my back swing. This causes me to hit it left on many occasions is it because I am releasing too early ? Do I need to change my strong grip ? The more I'm swinging to the left the more I'm trying to hold off my finish which prevents me to ever getting it back to parallel to my plane.

Thomas Strand says:

Pushes, hooks, fats and thins. Got it.

6string - Dave says:

If you don't know where you're going how do you know how to get there? Maybe golfers should learn a good finish first then how to get to impact. Everything else may fall into place?

6string - Dave says:

Love the sound effects for the graphics! Very nice. Keep up the great work! Oh, and the instruction is always great too!

david price says:

Yes, sound effects are very, very annoying.

Robert Mayer says:

Please stop with the sound effects for the graphics.
Very annoying!

wreckim says:

Eric, thanks for this lesson…very simple, yet necessary for consistency…at least in my case. Awesome explanation, and visual help with simple and inexpensive props. I can do this pretty good when I'm not trying to hit a full shot…3/4 shots etc…seem easier…Full shots are a different matter…perhaps years of the slightly out to in path take quite a task to get rid of….especially in Tournament play. Thanks for posting.

Kall Ramanathan says:

Great lesson, as always! Thanks Eric??

Rick M says:

Great video like the explanation. On how you do the work station.

Don MacLean says:

The sound effect for graphics appearing and disappearing had me thinking I was having some new type of weird hiccup. I didn't figure that out nearly to the end of the vid. Nonetheless very good instruction.

Gary Higgins says:

Eric, the base that is holding the alignment rod and noodle in this video, where can one get that?

Butch Edwards says:

What bozo gave a thumbs down ? I mean , really ?? If you don't like a video, move on down the road… Anon haters should mature…. Good tips given by this man
