Four Principles of an Effective Golf Swing
The following principles can make your golf swing easier while producing more distance with more accurate shots.
Dynamic Balance is the act of balance during movement. It happens unconsciously as part of the body's auto-response system. In other words, during your golf swing, you don't have a choice in the matter. Whether you like it or not, your body will strive to keep you in balance...even if it means over-riding your conscious plans for your golf swing.
On the good side, this balance will happen automatically if you are already balanced before starting your golf swing. The problems begins if you are not in balance when you set up to the golf ball. The body will still attempt to re-balance during movement. The act of rebalancing will throw the golf swing off course and create many of the problems golfers see today.
Golf Swing Control explains balance and Dynamic Balance, how to maintain it and use balance to add to the power and accuracy of your golf swing. The instruction course will show you how to control dynamic balance to shape and control all of your golf shots.
Transition is the key to power with an effortless golf swing. Transition is the small time period between the backswing and the downswing. Overlooked and misunderstood by many golf instructors, this is the most crucial part of the golf swing. Understanding Transition will cure hitting from the top, casting, and the ever present "hit urge" the causes most slices or topped shots.
Transition is crucial because weight transfer during the golf swing cannot properly happen without first setting up the hip joints to accept the motion of either the backswing or downswing. It is why many golfers "reverse pivot" during their golf swings.
Golf Swing Control explains how the hips work during the swing, how to leverage this movement for maximum distance and how the Transition will make the downswing an automatic event.
Muscles work in two ways. They contract to create muscle tension used for holding a position or they use muscle elasticity to monitor and control joint movement.
Muscles held in tension stop joint movement. This is important if you tense up during your golf swing in an attempt to hit the ball farther. If a joint has to change state near a tensed muscle, it cannot, which will throw the golf swing off and cause an ugly shot.
Understanding and using muscle elasticity instead of muscle tension during the golf swing will allow higher swing speed without throwing off the golf swing. The result; distance and accuracy, a more relaxed swing, and less back pain.
Golf Swing Control is the conscious act of monitoring the golf swing without interfering with it. Using feedback from your muscles to monitor balance, club position and body muscle action without creating tension to produce an easy swing that produces maximum club head speed and accurate golf shots with the least effort. There are only a few key points during the golf swing you should monitor to maintain a consistent golf swing.
To anyone watching, your golf swing appears effortless....because it really is effortless, but more importantly, it's deadly effective on the golf course.
