Yesterday had a lovely evening walking 9 holes at Singapore Island Country Club, Sime course.

Was chatting with my lady friend and a subject on biomechanics was the topic......

Her son had a few sessions with Ryan Lumsden, world renowned coach in Golf Swing Biomechanics in SICC somewhere in March. I was puzzled and ask what is a Biomecahnics ?.....

* Biomechanics are a 3-D progamme on a Laptop that shows the dynamics, timing, co-ordination, injury risk factor and golf swing of a students.

* sensors are stick n many parts body like the shoulders, chest, hips and head. The sensors than feed the computer as the person swing his club.

* A Laptop than presents a 3-D model, and this is shown to the student, his dynamics, timing, co-ordination, injury risk factors based on his or her golf swing

* This new technology thus provide a deeper understanding on the athleticism of each golfers, with ball speed, swing speed, biomechanics on each player, making video cameras as teaching tool could be a thing of the past real soon.

Anyone got more information on this new piece of technology, please share with everyone ! thanks !

They can do the 3D imaging with a set of several cameras rather than sticking sensors to you body now.

Don't worry, plenty of people are already eyeing this "whole new lucrative niche".

You too can become a "certified golf swing biomechanic" in a weekend and help your clients gain 45 yards on their six irons by activating the transverse abdominis.

... by activating the transverse abdominis.

Warning: This may be illegal in some USA states, and three southern European nations.

I'm having this done at a training facility I go to on Wedensday. It's part of the membership fee so nothing extra out of pocket. I dunno if it will make a difference, but it sounds cool.


FYI...

The place I go to is related to the Titleist Performance Institute

    • I had the same issue with my left elbow, physiotherapist treatment worked for me to reduce the pain. Then strengthen the forearms and wrists, I'm stronger and pain free and enjoy hitting a golf ball, I looked online for golf stretch and strengthen exercises and now have a routine that helps me. Good luck...
    • I like the KBS out of the two you mentioned, but a lot of variables to consider so I think a trip to a professional fitter is the best suggestion I got...
    • I guess it's not extremely "unconventional" but I think many parts of the swing goes against some of the more "standard" teachings, or at least what I see on Youtube (forgive me I'm still relatively new to golf). Some of the differences of this upright/2-plane type of swing, according to the Jim Hardy 2-plane swing vs more "standard" golf teachings: Using more of the arms to generate power, rather than the body Having less depth at the top of the backswing Being slightly across-the-line at the top of the backswing Having a more open club face coming down Less body and hip openness at impact Of course not every "upright swinger/2-planer" adopts all of the above, but those are the things that Jim Hardy mentioned in his book and I'm trying to follow it as I don't have any other guide.
    • I don’t think a “2 Plane Swing” qualifies as “unconventional.” Please embed videos here: https://thesandtrap.com/how-to/embed-videos/
