The Tee Shot:

The essentials of good driving are pictured here with a great backswing turn and then a full follow-thru.

Notice how the left shoulder has turned behind the ball in the backswing (under the chin). The wrists are hinged 90° (with a flat left wrist) and the right arm is bent 90* (as evidenced by the extended left arm).

The follow-thru shows the body has rotated back over the left foot and around toward the target. The unlocking of the wrists and straightening of the right arm all happens as a result of the body unwinding toward the target.
