Face the Target

The swing doesn't end at impact

Another key to distance control is swinging to a full and balanced finish position. Sometimes golfers focus so much on the first two parts of the swing—the backswing and the downswing—they forget about the through-swing.

I try to keep my swing speed consistent with every club and, more importantly, in control. Not only to regulate distance, but when you swing through, that smooth rhythm should allow you to face the target and hold your finish position without losing your balance.
