The Mike Austin swing does not end at impact. Note Mike’s focus on the finish position:
“The right hip catching up with the left hip, the right knee catching up with the left knee. You are in a perpendicular position.”
Mike Austin harped on me to reach the finished position. Otherwise, you aren’t completing the swing and are cutting off the circular momentum which was key to his swing.
When you are out there practicing, hit some shots and take inventory of your finish. You now possess the tools to use the finish to check your overall swing dynamics. You can also use these Mike Austin gems to visualize the finish and then try to reach that critical position. By focusing on the finish your overall swing and ball striking are likely to improve.
