Balance Your Checkbook and Golf Swing

Written by Sean Cochran

We all search for it. Balance in our daily lives. Balance while riding a bike. Politicians are always debating a balanced budget in Washington, and most of us could use a little balance in our checkbooks. Balance is a term used in golf quite often as well. It’s a “buzzword” and almost a cliché when it comes torepparttar golf swing. I am sure you have heard numerous times from swing coaches that “you have to stay balanced when swinging your club.” Others phrases that I hear when we talk about golf and balance arerepparttar 149593 following: “When it comes to a sand shot, dig your feet intorepparttar 149594 stand so you can stay balanced,” “Ifrepparttar 149595 ball is on an uphill lie and above your feet, make sure you swing throughrepparttar 149596 ball, and stayed balanced,” and “Stay balanced when hittingrepparttar 149597 driver and get torepparttar 149598 finish position in perfect balance.” The list could go on and on, and I am sure all of you could probably add torepparttar 149599 short list above.

Two questions always arise in my mind when I hearrepparttar 149600 word balance in association with golf: 1) what does balance exactly mean, and 2) how do I create balance in my golf swing? I am guessing quite a few of you have these same questions, or similar ones, when you talk aboutrepparttar 149601 subject of balance in relation torepparttar 149602 golf swing.

I am going to answer both of these questions. We will first define balance and its relation torepparttar 149603 golf swing. Secondly, we will discuss how you developrepparttar 149604 balance capacities of your body in relation torepparttar 149605 golf swing. So without further ado let’s get started.

What is Balance?

This is a really great question andrepparttar 149606 perfect way to begin. So let’s hear it! What isrepparttar 149607 definition of balance? Think about it for a minute and then write down a couple of your answers. I understand that this is notrepparttar 149608 easiest question to answer (trust me, I have asked it plenty of times), and it is okay if you are not able to create a good working definition of balance (that’s part of what we are going to do with this article). Okay, time is up, what did you write down?

Well, let me tell you some ofrepparttar 149609 replies I have received for this question and we will take if from there. Here are just a few that I hear: “head over your belly button between your feet,” “swinging a club onrepparttar 149610 correct path,” “knowing where your body is in space,” and “kinesthetic awareness.” All of these answers are somewhat correct, but none of them gives us a good sound understanding of what balance really means.

The definition of balance is simplyrepparttar 149611 ability to control your body during movement. Sounds pretty simple, does it not? It really is when you think about it, but let’s break this definition down so we understand it completely. Starting withrepparttar 149612 first portion ofrepparttar 149613 definition: “the ability to control” means what? Well, it is probably easiest to imagine what “out of control” looks like. Takerepparttar 149614 mental image of a racecar crashing intorepparttar 149615 wall. We could describerepparttar 149616 car as out of control. Now takerepparttar 149617 flip side of this, and what would this car look like if it were in control? It would probably zoom aroundrepparttar 149618 track without hitting anything. The body isrepparttar 149619 same; if your body is out of control it will, in a sense, crash or fall over. Ifrepparttar 149620 body is in control, then it performs whatever movement you are asking of it without “crashing.” Takerepparttar 149621 example of a toddler running. Sometimes they get going so quickly that they get out of control and fall over. Other times they stay in control and are able to run.

Moving ontorepparttar 149622 second part ofrepparttar 149623 definition: “your body.” Pretty easy concept to understand, don’t you think? Your body includes your torso, head, arms, legs, and anything attached torepparttar 149624 arms or legs, like a golf club. Up to this point we can put togetherrepparttar 149625 first two parts ofrepparttar 149626 definition and summarize it as:repparttar 149627 body (including your arms, legs, torso, head, and golf club) must be under control. Let us addrepparttar 149628 final part ofrepparttar 149629 definition intorepparttar 149630 mix to complete our understanding.

The final piece ofrepparttar 149631 definition is: “during movement.” This simply means anything your body is doing. It can be walking, running, throwing a baseball, or, in our world, swinging a golf club. Swinging a golf club is “our movement” when discussing this definition. We are now atrepparttar 149632 point to putrepparttar 149633 whole definition together. Let us userepparttar 149634 example of a golf swing to createrepparttar 149635 connection we are looking for in terms ofrepparttar 149636 definition.
