"If you notice, when I set up, my stance is narrow and slightly open.  The ball is just positioned inside my right foot and my hands are slightly ahead of the ball.  At this point, you will notice that the club shaft and my left arm are in a straight line.  As I take the club back and set my wrist and hit the ball in a downward motion and at impact my left arm and club shaft will be in a straight line.  As I continue and follow through, you will notice that my hips have rotated and the weight is transferred to my left leg.  Also again, my left arm and club shaft are in a straight line.

The most common mistake that average golfers make is to use too much wrist on the follow through.  If you notice, my left arm and club shaft are not on the same line."
