Golf Swing Biomechanics - Part 3
"Understanding the biomechanics of the golf swing."
Biomechanics of Golf Swing Overview:
You will have many options to choose from and we'll show you how to find the ones that will work for you. Once you have all of your "components" you won't need to experiment any longer!
SWING BIOMECHANICS: AIM and ALIGNMENT
Always set the
clubface first, perpendicular to the target line, then set your feet, knees,
hips, eyes, and shoulders parallel to the target line.
What is the object of golf?
To get the ball in the hole with the fewest strokes as possible!
To aid in alignment it is imperative that you utilize a procedure called an "Intermediate Target".
The intermediate target is something between the ball and the target. It could be a piece of discolored grass, an edge of a divot, a broken tee, etc.
It should be within your peripheral vision, so that you don't have to lift your head.
It also means that the club always moves in 3 dimensions. The Backstroke dimension is backward, upward, and inward all simultaneously and On Plane.
The keyword for Backstroke is "BACK".
The hands and arms control the backward and upward movement of the club.
Therefore, if you did not make a shoulder turn the clubhead WOULD NOT move inside the baseline. The shoulder turn moves the club inward, NOT back and up.
So if the player just turned their shoulders, without any hand or arm movement, then the club would be inside but not back and up.
These two movements MUST work together to achieve the proper sequence.
The trailing forearm moves the club on Plane by "tracing" the Plane.
The bending, and folding of the trailing elbow also raises and lowers the club and cocks and uncocks the target side wrist.
Never raise the arms and club by lifting from the shoulders sockets!
Once the player has reached full extension (follow-through) then the club moves again upward, inward, and backward.
This completes the 3 dimensional swing.
