Weight Shift in the Golf Swing - Pt. 1
Using our Science and Motion (SAM) Balance Lab, we can pin point weight shift and weight distribution of golfers in real time. In this video, use the Balance Lab to show how simple it is to transfer weight for an increase in power of around 14% according to some research. The key is that weight shift is completely natural, and in fact, as you will see in the video, to NOT shift your weight will not only feel unnaturaly but leave you feeling powerless as well.
- Casual golfers may give up weight transfer for simplicity, but they will sacrifice power in the swing
- Swaying the whole body does transfer your weight, but is very hard to control
- Transfer your weight by shifting onto the right leg, keeping the body still
- Stance width 2" outside neutral allows for plenty of weight shift without moving off the ball
