This is the first article of our six of the best basic swing tips instructional series. So here are the five top follow-through tips...

1. Strong grip

If your grip is weak, you'll have a tendency to either over rotate or under rotate your wrists during impact and on the exit.

2. Rotate forearms

This is important to avoid slicing the ball. the easiest way to do this is by trying to touch your left forearm with your right as Rory does in the photograph above.

3. Toe of the club passes the heel

As with trying to rotate your forearms over, you want to try and let the toe of the club pass the heel during exit, which will in turn help you avoid the dreaded slice.

4. Raise the right foot

Check that you can raise your right foot off the ground when your in the finishing position. You don't want to full back on the shot so all the weight should be on your left foot.

5. Belt buckle facing the target

Tom Watson's dad told him that making sure your belt buckle faces the target at finish ensures your body to naturally do the right things during a swing. Above, Rory has done just that with his whole body facing the target or rotated around even further.
