Where should I finish on my full iron shots and does it even matter? Now when you are hitting a full iron shot and you come up to your finish position, in an ideal world you will be up onto the back toe with the weight position on the front foot with the chest, the belt buckle and the eyes all facing down towards the target and the club resting in a nice position across the back of the neck and across the back of your shoulders. Now if you don’t achieve this position but you still hit a good shot it’s not going to be the end of the world, one look around the professional tours will show you that everyone’s finish position is normally slightly different. So there is no one perfect way and after you’ve hit the ball there’s nothing you can actually do to affect the ball flight. So in some respect the actual finish position that you get up to doesn’t matter a great deal. However, what it does do is it tells a story of the swing that has gone before. If you are in your finish position, and you find that you are still in your back foot, it will show that your weight hasn’t transferred through the swing fully.

If you find that after impact your club is all the way around the inside here this will show that your swing path is been slightly out to in and slightly constrained. If you find that you swing and you let go off the club after you hit the ball it will probably tell you that your grips’ is a little bit too loose. So although after you’ve hit the ball you can’t do anything to actually affect the shot, it will just tell a story of what’s gone before. And if you can finish in a nice flowing and a nice full bounce position it will show that the swing is also been full flowing and bounced as well. So take it away, through impact and just try and hold this position, we’re up on the front foot, the back toe is down, the chest, the belt buckle and the eyes are all facing to the target and if you can hold this position then it should show that the swing that went before has been nice and bounced and full.
