More importantly, they also move to his right away from the target. In fact, nobody's hands move away from the target from the top as much as Sergio's. If he really was pulling a chain, it would be on more of a degree angle after he yanked it than what he's depicting at left. Drop your hands and keep your shoulders back as Sergio advises, but experiment with moving your hands to the right away from your right ear and out toward the target line a bit.
The "away" move will definitely help you keep your back pointed at the target longer, which is always a benefit. I focus on my shoulders — once I start turning them I don't want to raise them or drop them closer to the ground. I think of it as a "level turn. Now, a lot of great golfers make this move and hit incredible shots, but for me, it's a killer. Feel like you're swinging more "around" your body. Your arms will take care of the "down" part. If you do it correctly, your swing will feel flatter, and for most slicers this will do wonders for your ball flight.
As important as it is to his swing, most people miss it. Because he drops to such a low plane on the way down, making anything but a level turn would cause Sergio's swing to move too much out to the right and shift the bottom of his arc behind the ball. In other words, if he had practiced making a steep turn rather than a level one growing up, you never would have heard of him. Steep swingers those who swing down on a more upright plane , need to move their right shoulder down to keep the club from getting too far out in front.
Jack Nicklaus is a great example of this type of swing.

The flatter your plane, however, the flatter you should turn through the ball. For me, it's realizing that my weight and upper body are over my right leg at the top of my backswing and over my left leg in my finish. Really, your down-swing is nothing more than a shift toward the target as you whip the club through impact and into a nice balanced finish. When I start to feel like I'm hanging back a bit at impact or at the end of my swing below center , I know I have problems.
I'll immediately go back to basics and start making swings with the sole intent of getting my upper body over my left side at the finish. I'll exaggerate it until I feel like I'm falling toward the target below far right. It's that important to get moving toward the target.
1. Keep Your Hands Low
Get these right and you'll almost guarantee a full move through the ball. Some golfers require a steeper turn right shoulder low to approach the ball on plane. But all golfers need to move their right shoulder forward. As Sergio says, you need to get to your left side. Do it by continuing your turn as your hips move forward and around.
Your goal is to get your right shoulder and hip closer to the target at impact when hitting an iron and also at the finish on all full-swing shots. This is critical for a flat swinger like Sergio. It helps him move the low point of his swing forward hello, perfect divot! If you're a steep swinger, you'll have more of a hang-back look above far left.
