How the body moves and sequences during an activity is key to performance and avoiding injury. Utilizing training for improved golf swing performance is best accomplished through improving activity specific coordination. The body moves in very specific patterns during the golf swing. These patterns can be referred to as activity specific coordination. The more efficient […]
When I perform a biomechanics evaluation on a golfer’s swing, the most commonly asked first question is, “What is my club head speed?” Typically, the player is interested in miles per hour (MPH). Most golfers relate distance to linear speed, because until recently, this was the only measurement of power. However, with the advent and […]
Club release or wrist uncocking refers to the angle made between the club shaft and the plane of the arms as they move around the axis of the spine. This is the last link in the kinetic link or the last step in generating optimum power in the golfswing.
Last month we spoke about ground forces and how the body moves and creates power. Next, we are going to compare golf to baseball and the similarities in how the body creates the power generation process (kinetic link). Believe it or not, golf and baseball swings are biomechanically comparable. Hitters in baseball and golfers use […]
In last month’s issue we wrote about the physics and physiology behind generating optimal power and efficient movement in the golf swing. This month we’ll focus on physiology of the muscles and the laws of physics.
Using Biomechanics technology and techniques in the golf swing, we gain a complete understanding of how the body creates clubhead speed
