In analyzing the most important golf movements, we will see how the proper movements will improve the player’s game. Strength and control of the shoulder, arms, lower back etc are required . Balance is essential to stabilize the spine and prevent injuries from happening.
The “stand” or position towards the ball is the most important phase of the swing and where the initial movement of the back swing begins. It is essential to keep a solid, stable base in order to get firmness and security in the swing. Balance, flexibility and alignment are the key at this point. A good set-up lowers the level of stress on the spine and gives stability for the rest of the swing. This is the preparation, the rising of the club. There must be a synergy between the rising of the shoulders and arms with the rotation of the trunk, with the pelvis rotating 30° to 45° and the shoulders up to 90° in relation to the position of the ball. The knees are tensed and the abdominal muscles must be strong enough to protect the lower back.
Is the preparation, backswing. There must be synergy between elevated shoulders and arms with the rotation of the trunk, caused by a rotation of the pelvis hips turned about 30 to 45° and shoulders continue to rotate up to 90 degrees according to the position of the ball. Knees tighten and strengthen abdominal must to protect your lower back. Raise arms generated by other dominant shoulder tendinitis, added to the energy of rear impact.
This consists of the lowering of the club from its highest point of the back swing. The right rotation takes place when moving away the pelvis first and then the upper body thus creatin a kinetic chain that generates potency in the turn, keeping alignment and stabilizing the hips and shoulders. This chain begins by stabilizing the abdominals that drive back and forth the rotations of the spine in the effort. The shoulders must be strengthened in order to generate the potency needed. Hand and forearm must be strong enough to absorb the impact and avoid the risk of the greatly feared “golfer elbow”.
This is the finishing phase of the shot. Muscular activity generated so far in the swing requires that the player maintains the degree of tension until the point when he liberates the club.
