Here are the 5 things you must look at when evaluating your golf client –
1. Back leg sequencing
The back leg should appear stationary during the first 3/4 (ish depending on the unique best swing of your client), the hip will go through several combinations of feelings before it initiates the down swing –
Extending – Adducting – internally rotating
Flexing – Adducting – Internally rotating
Flexing – Abducting – Internally rotating
Flexing – Abducting – Externally rotating
2. The change at the hip from Extending – Adducting – Internally Rotating, to Flexing – Adducting – Internally Rotating should happen prior to the change from the right arm traveling in to right rotation to left rotation. It is this disassociation between ribs and pelvis that creates the skill of turning/throwing which is the golf swing.
3. The left leg must go in to a loading position, so the foot and ankle should pronate, the mid foot should feel dorsiflexion – inversion – abduction and the knee will show some flexion – adduction – internal rotation all on the back swing. The amount this happens is dependent upon the golfer
4. The follow through, requires range, change of height and the ability to pivot on the back leg.
5. Each swing is unique, and so the benefit of knowing every bone, joint and muscle during the backswing, coupled with a coach with an eye for the swing, would be the best possible solution for a client.
In the course below, we show how a Golf Pro and a client can work together in order to get maximum results for a client. Also we use video motion software to help identify individual movements that may be missing.
