Golf Swing – Impact and Follow Through

IN the final part of our golf swing fundamental series, Bobby Eldridge of PurePoint Golf explains the moment of truth – when the head of the bat hits the ball.

The Downswing

BRINGING the clubhead to the back of the ball is the critical moment in golf. In Part 6 of our Full Golf Swing Fundamentals series, Bobby Eldridge, Head Teaching Professional at PurePoint Golf, says it is the point of no return. As the right arm begins to unfold and the left hip moves one or two inches towards the target before it begins to turn out of the way, the downswing is in full swing mode. In other words, he says, the game is on. There’s no holding back, no stopping and no bailing out. There are some very important moves that have to take place here for a solid shot with maximum clubhead speed.
