Have you ever wondered how someone such as Jim Furyk won the U.S. Open with that golf swing? Or have you wondered how players such as Raymond Floyd or John Daly, or Matt Wolff have had such successful careers with such unorthodox golf swings? Fortunately, with the aid of 3D motion capture systems, researchers have been able to identify the true measurement of a good golf swing. The answer is not in how close your swing resembles Rory Mcllroy or Jason Day on a video camera, the answer is in the efficiency of your swing compared to the best players in the world. In other words, there are a lot of ugly golf swings on the PGA TOUR but they all seem to get the job done. The question you should be asking yourself is “How can I make my golf swing get the job done?"
Using data collected from 3D motion analysis systems, we can look at how golfers generate speed and transfer the speed or energy throughout their bodies. We have found the most efficient sequence of how they transfer this speed to the club head. We call this the “kinematic sequence.” The amazing thing is that all great ball strikers have a remarkably similar kinematic sequence of generating speed and transferring speed throughout their bodies. That means if you compare Ernie El’s kinematic sequence to Jim Furyk’s kinematic sequence, it’s hard to show a difference. That is a bold statement since there is such an obvious difference on 2D video. All great ball strikers begin by generating speed from their lower body and transferring that speed through their torso, then into their arms, and then into the club. But what swing style they use to complete this sequence is completely unique to each player.
"The body works in an alternating pattern of stable segments connected by mobile joints. If this pattern is altered- dysfunction and compensation WILL occur." - TPIs Mike Boyle and Gray Cook
Pelvis/Sacrum/Lumbar Spine Stable
Thoracic Spine Mobile
Cervical Spine Stable
You can see how this observation of an alternating pattern of mobility and stability can help describe how injuries occur. If you take the lower back as an example, you will often find that the hip joints and thoracic spine are limited in mobility. Unfortunately, limited thoracic spine and hip mobility are two of the most common findings in male golfers. This is a big reason why lower back injuries are so common in golf.
What can alter a normal pattern?
1. Traumas - Accidents, Posture, Repetitive Injuries.
2. Thoughts - Stress, Anxiety, Mental Collapse.
3. Toxins - What You Eat, What You Breathe, What You Drink.
4. Technique - Poor Learned Skills, Muscle Patterns
Using Flight Scope technology and a 3D Camera, we will analyze your golf swing from behind as well as from the side in order to point out which of the most common swing characteristics you possess. There are 12 common swing characteristics (which are not necessarily swing flaws) that have their own reasons for showing up in your golf swing. In other words, there is a body-swing connection to why your body swings the golf club the way it does and we're going to find out why.
With 16 various physical tests, we will find where in the body you are limited (whether that pertains to mobility, flexibility, stability, weakness, etc.) and how those limitations affect your body-swing connection. Everyone has different abilities with their bodies and are unique to their own capabilities so by simply giving swing instruction without any fitness or training is almost insane. With these tests, we will be able to tell you WHY you swing the way you do.
By identifying your most severe swing characteristics and testing you on your physical abilities (biomechanics, mobility, stability, flexibility) we will then be able to "diagnose" where your problems are coming from. Whether those problems involve inconsistency in the swing, weak contact, pain during/after play, or just not hitting as far as you used to, we will be able to address each and every one of those issues with a fitness and training program that s used at the highest of levels, especially the PGA tour. Whether you're a beginner trying to get better, an amateur trying to gain consistency, a pro trying to gain yardage, or ANY combination of things, we're willing and able to help you get there!
