Conventional wisdom says the golfer’s chest should directly face the target at swing’s finish.
Watch today’s pros, especially the younger ones, and you’ll see many of them defy this rule.
With the emphasis on hitting the driver as far as possible without fear of the consequences, free swinging is in. That means making an uninhibited, flowing motion all the way to the end.
From a technical standpoint, intentionally stopping your chest from turning on the follow-through can cause your arms to outrace the shoulders and flip the clubhead over through impact, creating a hook.
If you’re flexible enough to turn the shoulders left of the target at the finish, don’t worry about adhering to an age-old axiom by stopping them abruptly.
Give it a rip and tap into your natural power by rotating as far as you can.
