Today, I was watching Ben Hogan’s swing on YouTube and found a secret, that is of Ben Hogan’s swing.

What is it?

The secret is when Ben Hogan finishes his swing.  Watch very carefully and you will notice that Ben Hogan never swings full out on his irons, woods, and etc…etc…

He seems to slow down shortly after impact and the finish looks more graceful while not wasting extra energy.

So how do I do it?

You gotta really think of a “balanced” finish, a swing that slows down near the very end.

You need to think feel that you are swinging a momentum ball.  If you go too fast, you will lose control of the momentum ball at your finish.  If you can control a heavy ball, that’d be how you want to finish in golf.

    his swing slows at the end because he likes to feel the right hand working under the left through the release- basically holding it off. A held off motion combined with Hogan’s preference for a very firm grip in the fingers of the left hand will automatically cause deceleration past impact as he holds off rotation.

    When he does finish more in balance, it has nothing to do with deceleration, but rather simply a less than full swing, which is almost always optimal for the irons.
