Biomechanics of the Golf Swing

The Basics

  • Focus on the weight shift within the action of winding and unwinding the body
  • Optimizing what we term “dynamic balance” for the efficient delivery of club head speed and power
  • The quality of our footwork -- our interaction with the turf -- is vital to the chain of movement

Ground Control

  • Biomechanical principles in golf all start with the only parts of our bodies that actually touch the golf course - our feet
  • Our feet play the role of anchoring and stabilizing the body, providing the physical conditions required to wind up the muscles in the body to create that effective coil
  • The correct positioning of the feet allows the ankles to work in harmony with the respective calf and thigh muscles to maintain the posture in a stable position
  • This harmony provides the platform that allows the upper body to coil and create the core momentum of the swing

Amateur Mistakes

  • The common tendency is the urge to fall forward into the swing
  • The weight moves to the toe of the opposite plant foot, which makes it impossible to rotate and clear the hips correctly
  • The weight may also roll to the outside of the shoe creating lateral sway
  • Either of these faults will result in a player losing the consistency of that natural rotary motion

OrthoGolfer Elite® Solutions

  • Our Patent-Pending Lateral Stabilizer, Deep Heel Cup Technology and Elevated Forefoot Design will curtail any amateur golfer’s tendency to fall forward or roll sideways
  • Our device aligns and positions the foot in the optimal position, thus guiding the proper action of the muscular kinetic chain around the skeleton during the swing
  • Our functionality enables a repetitive golf swing that relies on a player’s rotation around a stable axis
