When you are driving a golf ball, a good follow-through helps to increase the distance of the drive. A good follow-through means that the club head is kept in contact with the ball as long as possible. Why does this technique allow you to hit the ball farther?

• physical science -

Longer contact time leads to a higher impulse, and more momentum transfer to the ball. (Higher velocity)
