    Another excellent instruction video, Shawn. Questions, thanks:
    1. Lead hand is very firm grip, should trail hand be softer?
    2. Lead hand thumb. Short thumb or long thumb position and why?
    3. Rate of clubface closure. Delayed and fast or gradual and slow?

      Shawn dumps on the WRX forum and vanishes because he’s wrong and knows it.

Master your takeaway with force and torques

Published

on

Most golf swings last less than 2 seconds, so it’s difficult to recover from any errors in the takeaway. Time is obviously limited. What most golfers fail to realize is that the force and torque they apply to the club in the initial stages of the swing can have major effects on how they are able to leverage the club with their arms and wrists.

Our research has shown that it is best to see the golfer as a series of connected links with the most consistent golfers transferring motion smoothly from one link to another and finally to the club. Approximately 19-25 percent of all the energy created in a golf swing actually makes its way into the motion of the club. That means the remaining 75-80 percent is used up in moving the body segments. This emphasizes the fact that a smooth takeaway is your best chance sequence the body links and become more efficient with your energy transfers.

In the video above, I give a very important lesson on how the forces and torques applied by the golfer in the takeaway shape the rest of the swing. There will be more to come on the subject in future articles.
