The Golf Swing Is Counter Intuitive

Posted by on   /   Posted in golf technology

There are very good reasons why most golfers continue to struggle to improve their golf swing. The golf swing is complex, with a sequential chain reaction of timed movements requiring a precise stroke of a clubhead, on a small object, swinging at a high speed, all while maintaining balance and posture. The physical movements in a good golf swing are difficult enough to time – so if you have inefficient movement, with excessive effort resulting in more physical manipulations and compensations, this requires even more timing.

The golf swing is also counterintuitive. For right-handed golfers, your instinct tells you to use and sometimes overuse your dominant, or right hand and hand to add strength and control, because that is what your brain is programmed to do in other activities. In golf, however, this can cause many problems that reduce power and consistency. Your "intention" to "go" or "on" to lift the ball into the air is the opposite of what your intention should be, namely "down (to a certain extent) and by" hitting the ball. . Once you realize that some "feels" and the execution of certain head movements in the golf swing are sometimes opposite to what you perceive, then you have the ability to shorten the learning curve and change the inefficient movement faster.

In order to learn how to move effectively in a golf swing, golfers should be able to trust that, contrary to their instinct, exercise will actually produce more power in most cases. This is a difficult concept to understand and some may even feel weaker in the first instance when they try to apply the right or more efficient movement than when they feel more powerful. In some sports, pushing or expanding the body in one direction adds strength and speed … However, during golf, these radical movements tend to affect the golfer's ability to move the arms and bats on the right path and surface. keep impossible to maintain a consistent stance and overall balance.

Learning how to use the right technique while incorporating a more tension-free swinging motion will create more clubhead speed than trying to stretch the ball with the body. What golfers need to learn in order to create more strength and consistency, is quicker to swing balance. If a swing feels easier, this does not necessarily mean that there is less power – it only means that less effort is made. Keep in mind that it is difficult to be a "longe!" To take

Consider the following examples of what golfers instinctively want to do versus what to do in an efficient golf swing:

Lift the golf ball:

Golfers want to hit the ball " hitting "when they really have to hit it to make it go up. (Especially with irons)

To add power:

On the down swing, golfers want to have the body fall forwards and backwards, the upper body shakes backwards and aggressively turn and pull it lower body to the goal to create strength (as in other sports) when they have to do the opposite. Resist the urge to fall out or shock the upper body and resist the early and excessive twisting or turn open and stand up with the lower half before the collision. For clarity … Yes, the golf swing requires some lateral movement towards the goal and opening of the legs, hips, core and shoulders to get maximum power. However, not all at once for the collision as if a bomb just went off!

Hitting for power versus swinging for speed:

Golfers want to hit the ball by throwing the hands and the club go outside and down and release the club head immediately from the top of the swing to reach the ball, creating a hammer and a nail effect. Instead, golfers must resist the release of the clubhead, as if it would never hit the ball. This creates a leverage, deceleration and speed through impact, giving the impression of an uninterrupted pendulum movement.

In conclusion, the excessive movement is losing. effort. Take the Gorilla suit and take the hammer out of your hands as you try to move a golf ball forward with strength and accuracy. First, make the intention to learn how to achieve a reasonably stress free, rhythmic, overall balanced golf swing. Your handicap and your body will thank you! Distance will come …
