Finish with almost 100% of your weight on your left foot making sure your right heel is pointing in a vertical direction. (Straight Up)
Hips and shoulders should be pointing towards your target. Notice your right shoulder will be lower than your left shoulder at the finish position. This is very important as it shows that you have maintained your posture during the entire swing.
