Brian Harman - Transition & Follow Through

Brian Harman breaks down the position he needs to be in through impact and follow through to hit the ball consistently with power.


What I'd like to go back to, I'm going to give you a 7 on, is-- and I think a lot of amateurs and pros too have trouble with-- is talking about the transition, the drop as you talked about it. That's where the money is.


Imagine the drop, right?

Yeah, that's a hard one. For me, whenever I'm hitting it the best, I feel that my back is still the target for as long as I can hold it there.


So as that club comes down and gets inside, my back is-- you can't keep it from doing that. You really can't.

Everybody wants to throw out in a hurry.

No, you've got to wait on it. It's almost like you could stare at the back of the ball for as long as you can because this club is going to come this way if you keep turning.

Yeah. So hit me that 7, and let's see if you can maybe articulate that a little bit more about how we can manage the drop.

Right, so I'll go. Good takeaway-- now, I'm back up to the top. Now, even if I can get my hands--

Back down.

--into here. And as I turn, it's hard to miss it from there.

You can't.

It's hard to miss it from there. Toe up, hands inside the ball, I've given myself a path to go this way.


That's what people miss-- is they try to help it this way--


--and they try to help it this way.


But if you just stay within yourself, and let that club come around over here, that's how you maintain that contact, that line of compression you talked about because the hands have got to go this way for the club to stay on this line longer.

Yeah, because we know that the club, if we elongated this circle, we don't think of things as straight, right?

This is where people miss it. It's because it comes this way.


Right? You're thinking like this, right?


You want to stay on the inside of that.


Not the outside, right?

Yeah. It's just hard because we deal so much in straight lines that you want to make this club go like this.


But it doesn't. It goes this way.


It follows that path.

And of course, the reason that is, is because your left hand is connected to your shoulder.


As your shoulder goes around, it's going with it, right?
