Course 1:

The Biomechanics of the Big Hitters

This course is focused on the Biomechanics of the Big Hitters, discussing the key biomechanical variables that are linked to the generation of clubhead speed. As part of this discussion, we will highlight the differences that exist between higher skilled and less skilled golfers, and show how such variables are analysed using 3D motion capture and force plates.

This course is made up of two parts:

Part 1: We start off this topic by exploring the importance of distance, PGA tour data and academic research, as well as, discussing the key determinants of driving distance. We then shift focus to the biomechanics that are linked to the generation of clubhead speed, discussing X-Factor and X-Factor Stretch.

Part 2: We continue to explore the biomechanics that are linked to the generation of clubhead speed. Discussing Timing of Wrist Break, Timing of Max Clubhead Speed, Ground Reaction Forces and Kinematic Sequencing.

This course can be taken Online or can be delivered Live (In-Person or Online). If you are a PGA section/PGA organisation, this series can be organised exclusively for your members.
