I do ok with irons 7 - wedges.
For some reason with a driver or fwy woods, after I hit the ball, I stop.

My hands  usually stop  right in front of my face, and the driver is pointing  straight up.
Last summer, for about  a week, I had a full follow thru.
During that week my drives we're  more accurate and  about 20 yards longer.
Thanks

That's a result of your swing.  You don't force a follow through,

There are many reasons why this could be happening.
Did you see him smacked up
And cracked up
With his tongue on his chin
And his club in his hand,
Swinging from the rafters
Like a real RocknRolla

If I were a betting man I'd say this it totally mental and has to do with confidence. Typically, when one is "aiming" shots they stop short because they think that somehow allows better control over where the ball is heading, it doesn't.

If I go to the practice range, the first 6 or  more  shots  with driver are like that.
Also, I feel stiff.
  Then around the 10th drive I loosen up (maybe tired), and start to follow thru.
One thing I have noticed is the width of my  stance.
If it is too wide, I feel off balance .
This might be my fear of falling over.

You stop right after impact because you have stopped accelerating long before the impact. A very simple drill to fix that

Search for "golf swoosh drill" and watch any of them.

Just need to practice letting the ball get in the way of the club. When you take a practice swing with no ball do you follow through??

Take a stance, put your club behind the ball. Without taking a backswing, propel the ball into the air and move the club into a full follow through position.

Do this 50 times every day.

I have had no follow through for years.  Felt like I was, but I was not.   I was accelerating way too early and had lost it all before impact.   I now accelerate slowly with the highest at impact and this "causes" me to follow through.  It also helped to look an inch in front of the ball and I lost the "hit" impulse.

As stated above......make a "Swoosh" sound AT the ball or beyond, not before.

Also helped to take a practice swing starting AT the ball with no back swing.  Just a high full follow through.

Thanks everyone.
I'll  try this stuff.
On my irons I get the swoosh during the impact zone.
My 5 iron goes 185.
Something about  the driver that messes with me.
I'll  try some of the exercises!
