The hands and club should remain in front of the chest throughout the entire swing. Much like throwing an object with the chest.

A vast majority of golfers would improve their swing by rotating the chest around to the left after impact until the chest is facing the target, the chest moves to the right for the left-hander.

The clubhead is orbiting the body with a great deal of force, reaching speeds of up to one hundred miles per hour. If the chest stops, the club will keep going beyond the chest and move out of its original plane. In most cases creating a slice or a pulled shot.

The same theory applies to chipping and pitching.

Don’t forget to enjoy this great game called golf.
