Golf Swing Biomechanics - Part 5
"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: ADDRESS AND SET-UP
Approach the ball from behind and follow this order for success.
Verify these six Impact Alignments:
These MUST be verified before EVERY shot!
Now we're ready to start the backstroke.
The lower body should be moved by the upper body if the player is flexible enough, if not, then allow it to move freely in both directions:
At this point we would like to remind you that Address and Impact are NOT THE
SAME! The only thing that has not changed is the ball position.
There are basically three backstroke procedures to choose from:
Choose anyone you wish that feels comfortable and natural.
What initiates the backstroke? Ask ten different instructors and you will get ten different answers.
Some player's feel it starts with turning the shoulders, some feel it may be the hips, and still others think and feel it's the hands.
We believe it is a combination of the hands, trailing forearm, AND shoulder turn that start the backstroke. Earlier we talked about the role of the hands, arms, and shoulders during the backstroke.
They absolutely must work together and synchronous if the club is to stay on
As the club starts upward then the butt of the club must point at an extension of the base of the plane until it reaches the top of the swing.
If you can't get the clubshaft to parallel, then the butt of the club Must point to the base of the plane line.
If you are one of the few that can get the shaft to parallel, then it
should be parallel to the base of the plane line.
A great majority of players think the hips slide in the backstroke (shifting weight).
While this certainly is an option it eliminates creating any rotating force of the body.
A better procedure would be the one described above. It is the option that
the majority of the world's best players use.
