Ground Force and the Golf Swing

May 17, 2021, 07:00 PM – 07:15 PM EDT(-04:00)

Terry Hashimoto
As the co-founder of BodiTrak a portable pressure mapping system built right here in North America, my job is to identify Center of Pressure Mapping Traces generated during a golfers swing, how they impact performance and how to optimize foot movement patterns for maximum distance and accuracy.

I’ve spent a decade collecting COP Traces from PGA Tour Players and Top Players worldwide and certainly, there are key pressure positions that all top players achieve during their swing that affect ROM in knees, hips, and shoulders as validated by 3D and launch in addition to BodiTrak and that is what we are here to discuss and share together.

The key to swing velocity, club head speed, and distance is biomechanical reaction through postural control

Phil Stotter, PT
For maximum power creation in the golf swing, with minimal negative stress on the body, the ground must be the first link in the kinetic chain of energy transfer. Newton’s third law of motion tells us that using our feet and legs to drive forcefully into the ground results in the ground pushing back up into the golfer’s body with an equal magnitude of force. The force the ground transfers into the golfer is known as the ground reaction force (GRF). GRF is then transferred up the kinetic chain, first through the feet then the legs and into the pelvis, then up into the golfer’s core, shoulder complex, arms, and, finally, the golf club and ball. Controlling the transfer of this energy up the kinetic chain from the ground to the ball with the most efficiency is what allows the golfer to create the most force your body will allow, which leads to the greatest distance the ball will travel. A golfer’s body depends on three systems to control this neurological, sensory, and musculoskeletal.

More years to play golf and more years to play golf well: A health perspective

May 17, 2021, 07:30 PM – 07:45 PM EDT(-04:00)

Robert Scales, PhD
Whether you are an athlete looking for more explosive power or a senior who is concerned about maintaining lifestyle independence, optimizing the way our body moves has important implications for both health and sports performance, including golf. Many patients in our cardiology practice love to play golf or want to start playing again after an absence. So we conduct a physical performance screening to customize exercise therapy recommendations to focus on golf fitness in addition to overall health. While heart health can be a motivator, for many, the promise to hit a little white ball further may be the reason they stick with their prescribed home exercise plan.

Expert Roundtable Discussing Where Distance Comes From

May 17, 2021, 08:15 PM – 09:00 PM EDT(-04:00)
Phil Stotter, PT, Terry Hashimoto, Robert Scales, PhD, Bob Winskowicz, Jim McLean
You are going to learn where distance comes from including dynamic balance, stability, pressure, and impact. Symmetry, biomechanics, and gait will be addressed as well as ground force and distance. This will all be followed by a Q&A.
