Follow Through - At Home Training

There are two major pieces to the follow through position. The extension of the arms and the posting of the body. When you are practicing at home, use some of these simple drills to get proper feedback and start puting in the repetitions required to engrain a skill.

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:04,000
The drill is at home practice for the follow-through.

00:00:04,000 --> 00:00:11,000
And now we're getting into a place where I think it's very important to kind of pay attention

00:00:11,000 --> 00:00:13,000
to subtle differences.

00:00:13,000 --> 00:00:17,000
Impact things are going to happen so fast, set up is kind of boring.

00:00:17,000 --> 00:00:21,000
But now we're getting into follow-through, which is kind of in the meat of the swing, the

00:00:21,000 --> 00:00:24,000
end of where I've made all the important movements.

00:00:24,000 --> 00:00:26,000
Now I'm just kind of enjoying what I've done.

00:00:26,000 --> 00:00:33,000
My two favorite ways to practice this at home are either the push ball or the braised extensions.

00:00:33,000 --> 00:00:36,000
So just a quick recap on the braised extension.

00:00:36,000 --> 00:00:38,000
You can get used to this feeling.

00:00:38,000 --> 00:00:45,000
If you set up with a club, basically, if it's normally somewhere just to the left of vertical,

00:00:45,000 --> 00:00:48,000
you're going to set up with it almost 100% close.

00:00:48,000 --> 00:00:51,000
There's 90% close or however you want to view that.

00:00:51,000 --> 00:00:55,000
But basically, you're going to create a hook, like the old gong show, and you're going to get

00:00:55,000 --> 00:01:00,000
into this braised position and feel that upper body, hopefully through the glutes and

00:01:00,000 --> 00:01:02,000
through the abs and not through the back.

00:01:02,000 --> 00:01:09,000
So through the glutes, through the abs, feeling the pull of the body help extend the arms

00:01:09,000 --> 00:01:10,000
of the club.

00:01:10,000 --> 00:01:13,000
Then what you can do is the push ball drill.

00:01:13,000 --> 00:01:18,000
The great thing about this is you can set up right in front of a couch.

00:01:18,000 --> 00:01:22,000
And it's not going to do any damage even if you missed the couch.

00:01:22,000 --> 00:01:27,000
You can ask my parents, I did a lot when I was playing in college, and it helps work on

00:01:27,000 --> 00:01:31,000
that arm extension piece, which is one of the critical components of the good ball

00:01:31,000 --> 00:01:32,000
striking.

00:01:32,000 --> 00:01:36,000
So the push ball drill, you're going to get in your setup position, you're going to get

00:01:36,000 --> 00:01:41,000
into impact, and then you're going to feel that braised as those arms extend.

00:01:41,000 --> 00:01:45,000
And if you do it in the proper way, the club will actually stick to the face and go

00:01:45,000 --> 00:01:47,000
flying like so.

00:01:47,000 --> 00:01:55,000
If you do it the incorrect way, where if I was to bend my arms as I did this, you'll

00:01:55,000 --> 00:02:00,000
see basically because I flipped and bent my arms, even though I applied a lot of speed

00:02:00,000 --> 00:02:05,000
that speed didn't go into the golf ball, it kind of went under it, where if I do it

00:02:05,000 --> 00:02:13,000
correctly, get some good shaft lean, get that braised feeling, the club will actually stick

00:02:13,000 --> 00:02:16,000
to where the ball will actually stick to the club.

00:02:16,000 --> 00:02:22,000
So this is where I really start to work on five reps twice a day, ten reps twice a day,

00:02:22,000 --> 00:02:28,000
really helps you feel what this extension is going to be, which is a big, big key to

00:02:28,000 --> 00:02:29,000
consistent ball striking.
