Golf Swing Biomechanics - Part 4

"Understanding the biomechanics of the golf swing."

Biomechanics of Golf Swing Overview:

  • Learn what YOUR neutral grip is (Part 1)
  • The CORRECT ball position for every club (Part 2)
  • The CORRECT swing shape (Part 3)
  • How far back YOU can take the club (Part 4)
  • How to play within YOUR style. (Part 5)

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!


What does this term mean? Simply put, length of arc means how far back YOU can take the club.

Some players may be able to take their hands high above their heads in the backswing while others can only get their hands to shoulder height, or less.

It doesn't matter!

However far you can take the club and still maintain structure is the end of YOUR swing!

You can increase your length of arc by increasing your range of motion. See your local physical therapist for exercises to increase your range of motion.


Before every shot you play there must be a sequential order of events.

First of course we have to find our golf ball.

Once the ball is located we then must examine:

  • the type of lie we have
  • the distance to the target
  • the shot shape desired
  • the wind conditions (if any)
  • how we're feeling that particular day
  • whether to play aggressively or conservatively or somewhere in between 
  • choosing the correct club for the type of shot.

We can't call this a "pre-shot routine" because there is nothing routine about a golf shot!

There are always factors to be decided and these factors constantly change.

So we would encourage you to use the phrase "PRE-SHOT". Pre-shot may or may not include a dress rehearsal of the swing, a practice swing.

During the practice swing you're getting a feel for the mechanics involved in hitting the shot and visualizing the ball flight.
