Transcript of Golf

There is an identical sequence of speed or energy generation for all great ball strikers. That sequence is: lower body first (red line on the graph above), trunk or torso second (green line), arms third (blue line), and the club last (maroon line). This sequence occurs during the downswing.

Why You Have It
Tight Hip Flexors, Weak Core, Glutes
Poor Body Control - Hip Hinge
Limitations Can Lead To
- Improper Swing Mechanics
- Compensation
- Injury
- Inconsistency
Swing Characteristics
Loss of Posture
Flat Shoulder Plane
Early Extension
Reverse Spine Angle
Hanging Back

Mobility, Stability, Strength
Training For

Add Distance to Every Club
Increase Conditioning
Reduce Injury
Improve Health
Training For Golf
1. Sequencing
2. Strength, Stability, and Mobility
3. Swing Mechanics - Common Defaults
4. Screen/Assessment
5. Warm-Up, Preparation
Specific Sequence
Hips, Torso, Arms, Club
Difference Between Pro and Amateur
No Matter Style or Form - End Result is the Same
Each Segment Builds Speed - Like a Whip
Better Sequence = Higher Club Speed, Consistency
PMRS - Position, Movement, Resistance, Speed
PMRS - Resistance and Speed
Stronger = Further
Hips/Glutes Are King
Fatigue - Late In Round
Muscle Slings
PMRS - Position and Movement
Control Positions and ROM
Transfer Power
PMRS - Position and Movement
Lead Leg IR
Rear Leg ER
Thoracic Ext/Rot
Shoulder Rot.
Injury Reduction

If Lacking Mobility or Stability
Poor Set-Up and Alignment
Compensations - Lean, Slouch, Tall
Swing Defaults
Reduced Energy Transfer
S Posture
C Posture
Loss of Posture
Flat Shoulder Plane
Early Extension
Reverse Spine Position
Hanging Back
How To Fix It
Thoracic Extension Mobility
Scapular Strength/Control
Body Control - Hip Hinge
How To Fix It
Retrain Sequencing
Overall Strength
LB/UB Dissociation - X-Factor
How to Fix It
Thoracic Rotation
Hip Mobility
Improve X-Factor
How To Fix It
Hip Mobility
Re-Educate Neuromuscular
How To Fix It
Hip Rotation Mobility
Core Stability
How to Fix It
Hip and Ankle Mobility
Hip/Core Strength
Body Control
Find Asymmetries, Imbalances, Weakness
Restrictions in Mobility, Stability, Strength Can Lead to Swing Defaults
Prepare the Body For the Round
Increase Performance and Reduce Injury
Golf Requires High Forces and Velocities
Need to Prepare for These Forces/Velocities
Warm-Up To Swing Don‘t Swing to Warm-Up!

Earn the Right
to Rotate!
Separation of Hips and Shoulder
Related to Club Velocity
Requires Great Mobility, Stability
Takes Advantage of Muscle Slings
