Importance of the Hips in the Tranistion and Downswing Sequence

8 posts in this topic

I wanted to share a post on the importance of the hips in the transition & downswing sequence as I have been reading a lot of different opinions on this subject.

We use a highly advanced TPI 3D Biomechanical Swing Analysis system with all our high level players.

The data is very clear that low handicap golfers fire their hips (rotation) to begin the transition phase of the golf swing and many high handicappers do not.  Most high handicappers have upper body dominated swings which causes a lack of power and slicing of the ball.

The golf swing really is a ground up motion where we build a load from the ground and transfer that load into a force as it travels through the body.

The first rotational speed multiplier is the hips.  Good players transfer that force via hip rotation into the torso and up the chain.  Many high handicap golfers never transfer that force as they fire the upper body first.

Here is a video discussing what I mean.

Here is another video using my 3D system working with a customer to improve distance and swing sequence.  We increased Hip Speed and increased his swing speed by 15 MPH in less than 1 hour!

Today's technology allows us to see and correct many issues with the swing.  Hip Speed and sequence is critical to become a good ball striker.

Hello Erik,

I'm very sorry and I must be missing something on the Spam rules?

Just meant to post some good info on Hip Speed and the golf swing.

What did I do wrong?

Thanks and my apologies again.

Tom

Life is tough in The Sand Trap, Tom. It may seem cruel to you but anyone who posts a commercial web site URL is correctly viewed as a (despised)  merchandizer.

And, IMO, if it took you a high powered video/data analyzer gadget coupled with a SAS statistical program to learn that high handicappers do the swing incorrectly, then woe is you, as a golf teacher.

With your very first post, you included a link. That's spammy, and it's why a user reported your post as spam.

When you're selling something, always knock on the front door and ask the owner if you can sell to his family

You're not a sponsor and you included a link promoting your product.

Really? That's your comment on the OP? That's all you got from the OP? Woe is you, as a golf student.
