RELEASE & FINISH
One of my favourite things about Rory’s follow through is how he allows the club to naturally release through the shot, his arms turn over and he almost chases the golf ball to get every extra yard out of the shot. Jordan on the other hand looks like he is trying to “hold it off” and not hit the ball left. As you can see his glove hand stays above his right hand and doesn’t allow the hands and arms to naturally rotate through the shot. He also produces a slightly unusual position with his left foot where it looks very unstable through the shot. There are many things that could cause this including physical limitations, however the most likely cause is how he releases the club through the ball.
Rory’s finishing position is a thing of beauty, one thing I always notice with Rory is despite the power his body creates he always finishes in a balanced and poised position. Jordan despite his unusual left foot position also produces a very balanced and composed finishing position, partially thanks to his fantastic rhythm through the ball
