There is no one way to swing to a golf club, rather there is an infinite number of ways. However there is one efficient way for every player to swing based on what that player can physically do. The best way to find each player’s efficient swing pattern is to screen them using a physical assessment and use those findings to develop a unique plan.

SCREENING – HOW TO HUMAN BODY WORKS IN THE GOLF SWING blog-capture-3

The body works in an alternating pattern of stable segments connected by mobile joints. If the pattern is altered – dysfunction and compensation occur.

The purpose of screening is to identify any alteration in this pattern and implement a plan to correct it if feasible.

For example, the most common pattern among male golfers is loss of mobility within the hips and upper back. This causes the lower back to sacrifice its stability in order to improve mobility to compensate for the other joints, which will lead to lower back pain and certain swing characteristics.

Common swing characteristics from this pattern include early extension, loss of posture, over-the-top swing plane and early release of the club.
