Ask Ewa: Follow through


I have watched you for years and you have the best strokes for anyone. How do you perfect such a great long follow-through? –Kenneth


Thanks for your question Kenneth,

I always work on my follow through and I have a few tips in my Brunswick videos that may help you. The main thing is to get in the correct position, so you have good clearance for the follow through. A lot of players get their body in the way of the back or forward part of the stroke.

Also, always stay down on the shot until the ball has been pocketed, if possible. So many shots are missed due to players “jumping up” on the shot.

I hope that helps, keep shooting and good luck!
