The knees play an especially important role in the golf swing, helping to transfer the forces golfers generate through our connection with the ground. When we look closer at the right knee bend in the golf swing, we’re able to get a better sense of how PGA Tour players generate power compared to most amateur golfers.

    None of them can swing the way the 3D imaging of Pros shows.

    My right knee is a tad wonky cause I injured it playing tennis. Now my golf backswing is sorta shortened otherwise I will fall down. Should I give up tennis or golf?

    This video doesn’t really address the best way to move the right knee in the downswing like what Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, and Byron Nelson did. If you draw a line at the tip of the right knee down to the ground and up to their hip level at address in the traditional DTL 2D camera view, in the downswing and impact they all break that line and never ever go away from that line even in the follow through, the line ends up inside their right thigh during their finish. Moving the right knee off and away from that line in the downswing and impact is a problem almost every golfer, especially young ones struggle with, while it may lead to a bit more power, it leads to a lot less accuracy, Rory McIlroy struggled with this early in his career and has now lessened that movement especially with the irons. I believe breaking the line or staying on it in the downswing and impact is THE magic move, the move that perfects the pivot.

      Frank… why does the WRX moderator allow you to say so much but stop others… or are you a moderator ???

      That’s quite the revelation! Could you expand or better explain the ‘line’ defining the movement and positioning of the right knee? Thanks.

    Fast knees, fast swing …. slow knees, slow swing …. sooo obvious

    Very revealing and showing that the lateral movement of the AM’s knees are slower than the PRO’s knees… and that’s why the position of the club handle is different. The timing difference would show up on a face-on view of the swings. Also the AM may be pulling down the hands for late knee timing.

      AM golfer homemade swing sequencing is sub-optimal which messes up energy generation and transfer from body to the ground. Their Kinetic Chain is flawed.

      probably plyometric deep squat jumps to strengthen the trail knee.

        No… lunges into your trail leg until it becomes stronger and secure. Also, hip joint flexibility must be improved because most AM golfers are hip stiff. from sitting.

Clement: The best video for beginner golfers ever

Published

One of the deep expertise we have is knowing what side you need to be swinging from to enjoy your best golf. Sometimes it’s both sides like me! So many professionals on tour are including left-handed swings (for the right-handed player) in their warm-up routines and practice routines as a great way to create muscle confusion. Our fabulous kinesiologist, Munashe Masawi, confirms this through his studies and personal training for his grueling sport of football.

But there is always one side that fires better, feels smoother, and has the potential for a lot more than the other for many golfers. Which one are you?

Clement: Important video on grip! (dare we say “historic!”)

Published

on

We so much love being historically correct! Back when I started teaching 35 years ago, when I looked at what the top 5 coaches were teaching, I knew I had to forge my own way. Not only did it not make sense anatomically, it did not make any sense neurologically either! Fast forward to today and we talk about ground forces and how to let the hips turn in the backswing and grip? WHOA, DID THEY MISS THE BOAT THERE!!

This video really takes the cake and REMOVES ALL QUESTIONS AND DOUBT ABOUT GRIP; where to hold it, grip pressure and IN OUR OPINION, THE FIRST TIME IT HAS BEEN REVEALED IN IT’S FULL ANATOMICAL FUNCTIONALITY.

This will end all debates about the “weak grip vs strong grip” argument!
