Which Swing is Best? The Debate.

4507136-Portrait-Of-Four-Friends-Enjoying-A-Game-Golf-Stock-Photo-senior 16th-teejpgWhen I began my career in golf, it was the Big Three who were the prominent golfers on television.  Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player. Their golf swings all looked different. In my years in training as a golf professional we were required to examine and be familiar with the progression and changes of the golf swing and equipment. This began with the olden day  era of Harry Vardon  then moved forward to the  players of the day. Forty-five years on the experts have still not settled on a PERFECT SWING TECHNIQUE.  I don’t think the average Jo golfer needs to know all about this, as it will not help his game next weekend. However for students of golf or advanced golfers it makes very interesting background knowledge.

In the links below Kelvin Miyahira explains with very good comments on  swing theories of  some well known coaches of today and recent times. Click on the ‘ links’ below for a good read.

Kelvin Miyahira is a golf professional based in Hawaii. His knowledge of golf swing method, swing analysis and what techniques work for different people are second to none.

In the video below Kelvin discusses the way we make changes to learn new golf moves and the results to expect. He then demonstrates a drill designed to help a golfer get the feel of how to return through the impact position.

How to you think power gets from your body to the club head? This great article by Kelvin gives a review on which muscles make the swing work based on the biology of the human body. While to the average golfer this article may be quite advanced, I believe it is worth reading. Probably several times.
