In this episode we look at the pressure + center of pressure and how it can be used by coaches and golfers to optimize their performance.
With all the buzz about “GRF” and “center of pressure” what do the different terms mean and what does the research say about the golfers interaction with the ground? In this episode we learn from Dr Mike Duffey and Dr Scott Lynn about the forces going on with the ground and talk about what ground reaction forces actually are.
In today’s episode we’re taking a look at the research around X-Factor and X-Factor Stretch done by our guest Dr Phil Cheetham. X-Factor, first popularized in the 90’s by Golf Magazine and Jim McLean, was the focus of some of Dr Cheetham’s research in kinematics. Today we learn – Is it relevant? Does it hold up under research? Listen into the episode below to find out.
In this episode you’ll learn about one of the most commonly referred to measurements of the golf swing, the kinematic sequence. Learn from Dr Phil Cheetham, leader in the industry of 3D analysis and kinematics as he explains what it measures, what it means, how it relates to performance, and the story of the development.
Over this series we’re looking to explain what biomechanics is and make it as understandable as possible while we explore the golf swing and research going on around it. So you get a fundamental understanding of the golf swing from a correctly researched and sourced biomechanical perspective. Read more
