Sequence of Movements. ( Changed 16/11/2016)


It is important to understand is that the golf swing is broken down into three sections and each section of the swing has its own "sequence of movements"

Therefore maintain the back swing, the down swing and the follow through as individual movements and you will begin to understand how the professional golfer perform the golf swing.


Back swing

The back swing movement consists of using the rotational movement of the shoulders to literally push the passive arms to the end of the back swing movement, whilst both feet remain firmly on the ground and the hips remain in the frontal facing position for as long as possible.

(See Pete Cowen`s -"Axe Drill"- When site comes up, click on "home page" for the video.)

 

Throughout the down swing and the follow through movements it is the movements of the upper body, the hips and the arms working in complete harmony to literally swing the club head into and through the contact area.

Down Swing

The down swing movement is initiated by slightly applying pressure to the left foot to the ground and simultaneously rotating the hips towards the target area.

The rotational movement of the hips force the upper body unit to follow its movement and thus begins to rotate around the central core of the spine.

The rotational movement of the upper body unit pulls the arms along.

The movement of the arms pulls the club head in its wake.

 

Therefore the down swing movement must be seen as a series of individual movements that come together to accelerate the club head into the back of the ball.

At the precise moment the club head makes contact with the ball, the right arm is forced into the fully straightened position whilst the whole body turns to fully face the target area.

At the precise moment the club head makes contact with the ball, the head must be positioned so that the left eye is slightly behind the ball, the hands must not be ahead of the original address position and the weight of the body predominantly over the left leg.

 

Therefore the golfer has to synchronised the whole swing movement so that the club head makes contact with the ball at the precise moment the hands return to the original address position, but what is paramount is that the head must remain slightly behind the ball and the upper body angles must be maintained.

This sequence ends as soon as the hands and the club head are back at the original address position.


Contact and follow through.

This is the critical part of the golf swing, because during the down swing movement, the movement of the body were simply carried out in order to ensure that at the impact position the hands have returned to the original address position and simultaneously the club head makes contact with the ball.

At the impact position, the next "sequence of movements" begins.


Therefore as soon as the club head makes contact with the ball, the right arm is forced into the fully straightened position, thus keeping the club head square to the target line for that extra millisecond after the ball has been struck, whilst simultaneously the whole body quickly turns to fully face the target area - at the same speed that the club head moves through the contact area
.

(You cannot turn the body to face the target area too quickly once the club head strikes the ball.)

However in order to perform the golf swing successfully, the head must remain slightly behind the ball position and in the Fixed Frontal condition and the upper body angles must be maintained until well after the ball has been struck.

If you want a clear illustration of this action, observe the technique of Annika Sorenstam and see how quickly she turns the whole body to fully face the target area as soon as the club head strikes the ball.
