Golf Swing Evaluation for a Golfer

  Golf Swing Evaluation for a Golfer


The golf evaluation involves a complete analysis of the golfer's range of motion, strength, flexibility and neuromuscular recruitment patterns as they pertain to his/her golf swing. We will work together with the coach or teaching professional to develop an exercise program that will get your body back into the proper position for an optimal swing. The teaching professional looks at the swing mechanics while our job is to focus on the musculoskeletal assessment. We work together to bring any golfer to his/her individual goal.

Components of the golf swing evaluation:

⦁        Comprehensive musculoskeletal evaluation of:
         - Upper body, spine and lower body
         - Assessment of functional range of motion, strength and flexibility
         - Assessment of neuromuscular recruitment patterns specific to golf (being able to appropriately turn muscles "on and off" when needed )
⦁        Develop a golf-specific program addressing the imbalances or deficits, including muscular and cardiovascular endurance (if required)
⦁        Collaborative training program between the golfer and their teaching professional or coach
⦁        Follow-up assessment for progression of program
⦁        Injury evaluation with appropriate medical recommendations/referrals

If you have been in any of the following situations, this program would be of great benefit:
  • Struggling with injuries, including low back, hip, knee, shoulder, or elbow pain
  • Struggling with inconsistent wood or iron play
  • Beginning to play golf and trying to prevent any injuries

  • Wanting to get to a point where the game is fun again

The Anatomy of a Golf Swing

The Anatomy of a Golf Swing The golf swing features many parts that must work together to execute a well-struck shot. A golfer must consider the stance, grip, swing and tempo when making a golf swing. Understanding the different aspects of the swing and practicing them on a driving range can be the key to consistently hitting accurate shots and, therefore, posting lower scores.
Grip The golf grip is the way the club is held in the golfer’s hand. For right-handed golfers, the left hand is at the top of the club with the right hand immediately below it. The positioning is reversed for left-handed players. There are three common kinds of grips: the baseball grip, in which both hands grip the club like a baseball bat; the interlocking grip, in which the pinky finger on the bottom hand and the pointer finger on the top hand interlock; and the Vardon grip, an overlapping grip in which the pinky finger of the bottom hand rests in the gap between the pointer finger and middle …

How to analyze your Golf Swing on your own?

How to analyze your Golf Swing on your own? With the quality of the cameras ever improving on smart phones, and apps be designed to help golfers analysis their own swings, it is no wonder that when you look down a driving range these days nearly everyone is constantly videoing their swing.  When I check my students phones it, seems that no practice session is complete without at least 5 swing videos! The question is, does this help players improve their swing and golf?
What most players do not realize is that where you place your phone/camera will greatly change the look of your swing. Almost on a daily bases, players will tell me about a fault in their swing they would like to improve.  One example would be their top of backswing position being across the line (pointing to the right), but when I video their swing, the club is not across the line. Their swing has not changed.  It is exactly the same as when they videoed it themselves, but what has changed is the positi…
