Background golf information l.jpg
Background Golf Information

  • Theorized that golf originated from Scotland in the 1100s.

  • Golf derives from the Dutch kolf which means stick, club, bat

  • "Gentlemen Only, Ladies Forbidden" acronym for Golf ( which is not true by the way)


Background golf information3 l.jpg
Background Golf Information

  • 4-7% of golfers within the United States who play left-handed, however, most golfers prefer right-handed when playing

  • Golf is the unofficial sport of the business world.


Anatomy l.jpg
Anatomy

  • Large Muscle Groups

    • Trunk, back, hips, legs, shoulders

  • Small Muscle Groups

    • Feet, forearms, wrists, hands, fingers


Anatomy application l.jpg
Anatomy Application

  • Goal to achieve a fluid motion

    • Muscle groups contract and relax

      • Try not to interfere with acceleration


Phases of the golf swing l.jpg
Phases of the Golf Swing

  • Stance Phase

  • Back Swing

  • Downswing

  • Impact


Stance phase l.jpg

Correct stability (Firm center of balance)

Proper placement of feet in relationship to shoulders

Flexing and straightening the knees, hips, spine, neck

Stance Phase


Biomechanics of the stance phase l.jpg
Biomechanics of the Stance Phase

  • Depression of the arm and scapula as shoulders roll forward to grip the club

  • Axis of rotation = mid trunk

  • Lever arms = mid trunk and thigh


Biomechanics of the stance phase10 l.jpg
Biomechanics of the Stance Phase

  • Torso flexed forward to create primary spinal angle(about 45 degrees)

  • Secondary angle = lateral bending to right in spinal segments (about 16 degrees)


Torque and lever arms l.jpg
Torque and Lever Arms

  • Torque - The tendency of a force to cause rotation around a pivot point

    • Magnitude of the torque is equal to the product of the force and the lever arm

  • The length of the arm-club lever at the point of impact will have a direct result on the velocity of the ball



Biomechanics of the back swing l.jpg
Biomechanics of the Back Swing acceleration

  • Recruitment of energy

    • As club moves backwards shear force is applied to anterior portion of the right foot

    • Posterior shear force is applied to left foot

  • Additional torque = rotation of knees, hips, spine, and shoulders

    • Imaginary axis



Biomechanics of the downswing l.jpg
Biomechanics of the Downswing club head speed

  • Finishes backward movement and begins forward movement

    • Weight shift onto the inside of right foot and begins towards left foot

    • Elastic energy stored as a result

    • Hips closed at 45 degrees and shoulders closed at about 100 degrees


Biomechanics of the downswing16 l.jpg
Biomechanics of the Downswing club head speed

  • Majority of torque created by lower body muscle groups

    • Produces acceleration in the upper body as transferred energy


Impact phase l.jpg

Follow through and recovery club head speed

Deceleration of the golf swing

Muscle relaxation

Reduces risk for injury

Impact Phase


Biomechanics of the impact l.jpg
Biomechanics of the Impact club head speed

  • Weight transfer is complete

  • Shear force from both feet are towards the target

  • Potential energy transfers to kinetic energy as club head contacts golf ball

    • Left foot supports 80-95% of body weight


Impact follow through biomechanics l.jpg
Impact/Follow Through Biomechanics club head speed

  • Body decelerates by rotating to a completion point

    • Occurs as a result of energy absorption back up through the kinetic chain of the body


Mechanisms of postural control l.jpg
Mechanisms of Postural Control club head speed

  • First Mechanism

    • Postural control for balance during underarm swing and weight shift

  • Second Mechanism

    • Sequential movement of the arms and hands throughout golf swing


Injuries due to improper mechanics l.jpg

club head speedGolfer’s Elbow” or lateral epicondylitis

Left wrist goes into flexion as hands near impact phase

Creating pull on the lateral epicondyle and lengthening of the extensor muscles

Injuries due to Improper Mechanics


Injuries due to improper mechanics22 l.jpg
Injuries due to Improper Mechanics club head speed

  • DeQuervain’s Syndrome or tendinitis of the extensor and abductor muscles of the thumb caused by:

    • Additional load on muscles due to limitations of shoulder motion

      • Posterior cuff

    • Absorption of contact forces and rapid shortening and lengthening of muscles


Injuries due to improper mechanics23 l.jpg
Injuries due to Improper Mechanics club head speed

  • Spinal and back injuries

    • Laterally shift lower body to increase club speed on downswing instead of rotating pelvis in sync with the shoulders

    • Spine forced to flex laterally

    • Shear and rotational forces act on the spine and can cause hyperextension of the spine
