How do YOU swing hard without tension?

Recommended Posts

All i know is that as I get older and less flexible this becomes harder to do


it's hard to sequence properly if you don't have rotational ability

I really like these two variations on the above concept of "putting on the brakes":

Yep, there are a bunch of takes out there on parametric acceleration (shoulder up) and decelerating the body into impact (kinematic sequence). Here they’re specifically using a ‘brakes’ analogy to explain energy transfer between body segments and into the club.


Chris Brook has some good videos on deceleration in terms of the mechanics presented, but they’re not as easy to watch. Peter knight made a more watchable one, focusing on hands-to-clubhead, as do Chris Ryan and Robyn Symes.


Where I think Chris Brook differs - and I think it’s important - is that this isn’t just about hands-to-clubhead, but rather happens in a sequence across body segments too... And in those cases the deceleration is actually caused by an acceleration in the next segment.

I just make sure I exploit the forces of gravity to the fullest - it swings the club as fast as needed.  :wink:
