One of the most common mistakes
00:05
that amateur golfers make is they hit behind the golf ball.
00:09
Well, one of the main reasons is
00:10
they don't get through the shot.
00:12
They hang back too much, back on their right foot.
00:15
This foot doesn't even come up at all.
00:16
What you want to do is feel like when you come through,
00:19
you finish all the way through to your left side
00:21
as if this right foot, a back foot,
00:24
is just up in the air.
00:25
It's not doing anything but balancing you right there.
00:28
If you'll finish through,
00:30
and feel like if you could lift that foot up you'd be okay,
00:33
you'll know you're through the shot
00:35
and you'll stop hitting behind the ball.
