The biomechanics of golf swing can be very revealing about game of golf and specifically scientific difference between amateurs and professionals, winners and losers.
But what is biomechanics?
Biomechanics or Motion Capture Technology (MOCAP) is mechanical analysis of body motion. Studying and understanding physics of a golf swing by analyzing biomechanics of golf swing can be very revealing. This is usually achieved with help of high speed video technology.
The twisting golf swing produces torque on golf club. The greatest determinant on how far you will hit ball lies in speed at which club will be moving at, as it connects with ball at bottom of your swing. The faster your club will be going at bottom of your swing, greater amount of kinetic energy that will be transferred from club head to ball and further ball will go.
Results from close study of biomechanics of a golf swing indicate some fascinating facts. For instance professional golfers can generally achieve a club head speed of 100 M.P.H. at bottom of their swing. Fascinatingly, however, legendary golfer Tiger Woods can reach upto 125 M.P.H.
