Golf

Only one basic skill is involved in executing the golf swing. However, there are many variants of the swing depending on distance, lie of the ball, obstacles in the line of flight, wind direction, etc.

The basic swing is quite simple but it becomes complex because of the high level of coordination, flexibility, strength and power needed to execute a most effective swing. It may be even more accurate to say needed to execute a great shot that has the distance and accuracy needed.

More specifically you must be able to:

  • Maintain a stable base in order to execute the swing
  • Develop a sequential kinetic chain of joint actions from the feet through the hands that culminates in maximum production of force
  • Get maximum or correct clubhead speed when contacting the ball
  • Have an effective follow-through in order to dissipate the forces generated
  • Have a full range of motion in the backswing
  • Correct timing of each joint action with the optimal muscular force in each joint action in the correct sequence of actions.
  • Rotate the arms as needed to get the club head face square to the ball at contact
