Posture and Golfing – Getting it Right Every Time
With arguably deep-rooted origins in the Isles of Scotland, golf has turned out to be a sport with such high eminence.
It is a sport that involves a club and ball along with a series of holes for the ball to be ‘Put’ in. Fascinatingly it played in the aim for the lowest possible score, which means getting a negative number as your score is what you want to aim. From the standpoint of a spectator, one would suggest that the degree of difficulty is not that high for anyone who wants to participate. However, it is more than what meets the eye, just like any other sport it requires mastery of handling the club, positioning your body and calculation of the swing momentum needed for the projection of the ball.Golf is more than just a sport; it is science in its essence. Every position and body movement had to be coordinated in a timely perfection. To be well aware of the science behind it is very advantageous toward mastering your golf skills. It is all precisely physics, the amount of torque needed to generate a specific momentum to enable a projectile motion to the ball (when you’re at a distance from the hole) or linear motion (when you are near the hole) is part of the science behind it. With that being said, it is evident that your body posture plays a very significant role in achieving success in golf. Physics suggest, the lower the level of gravity, the steadier an object is in an upright position. If we are to apply this to our body positioning, as much as possible, we want to get lower. Keep in mind that the human spine serves as a point of the axis of the body, meaning to say during the hitting of the ball, cessation of unnecessary rotations and movements of other body parts is very beneficial to launch the golf ball. When your spine is in the right posture, your upper body collaborates well with your arms and shoulder to gain momentum from the swing and the torque created by backbone to deliver the desired hit. Patience is the key to get your body posture right, and practice will enable you to develop fully. You may wonder how people like Tiger Woods become so good at this sport; it was because he dedicated time teaching himself to understand the physics of golf, know the appropriate body posture, and perfect timing with execution. Thus body posture perfection is significant when using the concept of a teeter-totter wherein your spine is the fulcrum, and your arm with the club as the teeter-totter will help set you up on the road to professionalism. Remember, that the right club should be used every time to ensure the right amount of dynamics is involved in delivering the ball into the hole. Every aspiring golfer should aim to get every shot in the hole. The trick is 60 percent posture, 30 percent skill, and ten percent fate.
