GROUND MECHANICS MASTER CONCEPTS:
1. EVERY MOVE THE GOLFER MAKES WITH THEIR BODY OR THE CLUB IS REFLECTED IN HOW THEY USE THE GROUND.
While energy does not ‘come from’ the ground, we interact with it in order to make movements with our body or the club. As a result, any of these movements are ‘reflected’ in our interaction with the ground – our ground mechanics.
2. CHANGING HOW WE USE THE GROUND CAN DELIVER IMMEDIATE CHANGES TO HOW THE BODY (AND THE CLUB) MOVES.
Given concept (1), making (even minor) adjustments to our ground mechanics will have an immediate impact on movements by the rest of the body/club system. This is why changes to force & pressure dynamics have such a big impact on golf performance.
