There's something very strange about the concept of follow-through. Ask a physicist, and they'll tell you that nothing you do with the club after you hit a golf ball, or with a bat after you make contact with a baseball, has any real effect on the path of the ball. Nevertheless, coaches always emphasize the follow-through – often to the extent of downplaying the moment of contact. What's going on? The secret to follow-through isn't that there's some magic in the motion after the point of contact.
