The ChiroFit™ Program: THE ULTIMATE GOLF SWING TRAINING PROGRAM
isn't your golf swing improving? Have you ever had your golf swing
analysed? That's not just having a golf professional look at your
swing but check out your golf swing plane, posture, your spine angle,
balance and general biomechanics. If you haven't you are not having
a true swing analysis done.
You understand the
basics... how to hold the club, where to stand, but things go wrong
from there. The reason your golf swing goes astray when you take your
club back is because your biomechanics are faulty. For example, if you
have a functional short leg on your left side, when you take your stance
your hips will rotate resulting in an open stance. You might think that
you are square to the target line, but you are not.
your poor biomechanics the club is being forced into an out-to-in
swing so you will hit the ball with a clockwise spine. Correcting
your hip and spine angle will square the club face at impact so you
can hit the ball with an anti-clockwise spin. The hips and shoulders
must return to a square position this will not only cure your slice
but you allow distance from more power being generated from the correct
body turn and the square club face. If your hips are rotated you will
not be able to align your feet, hips and shoulders square to the target.
If your posture is corrected your muscles will groove your new swing
so you will naturally return to a stance with a square club face.
Also if your hips are rotated your centre of gravity will not be right
this will force your shoulders to turn too quickly with an open stance
due to a poor hip rotation the body will be in front of the ball.
If your spine angle is wrong you will not setup with your head behind
the ball you will begin your downswing before you have complete your
back swing with your arms.
Every golf swing
fault can be analysed this way. That's why your golf swing is not
improving. You are not addressing your main piece of golf equipment...YOUR
BODY...and how it affects your golf swing. This is why you have difficulty
repeating a good shot. Your biomechanics aren't grooved to a good
swing. Muscle memory is going to return you to a poor posture unless
it is retrained. Your golf professional is telling you to have good
balance, keep good posture and maintain your spine angle throughout
the shot. But how can you maintain your golf swing if your body won't
allow it? You need your golf swing analysed from a biomechanical point
of view to determine how your posture and muscle imbalances are affecting
I broke the golf swing down from a purely biomechanical view. How
does your posture affect your swing? Can it cause you to hook, slice,
hit the ball fat or thin etc? The answer was yes. Because as your
posture changes so does your swing plane. Then I looked at the variations
in posture. Can they relate to swing faults? ...Yes, they are definitely
related to every swing fault. So I came up with a basic equation.
imbalance = poor posture = poor swing
I looked at every
posture and muscle imbalance and came up with a simple formula to
analyse these faults related to a swing fault. So this is how Get
Fit to Golf and the ChiroFit™ Program was born. If you can maintain
a constant posture and spine angle through a shot you will be able
to repeat the same swing and return the club face square to the target
line. I also looked at well know golf champions past and present,
from Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman, Tiger Woods etc. Even
though they have variations in their swings at first glance, if you
break their golf swing down they all have something in common. At
the impact zone they have maintained good posture, spine angle and
balance, and they are able to repeat this. Tiger Woods is a good example.
When he first came on the golf scene he had the best posture of any
golfer I had seen.
If you want to
improve your golf game, your golf swing training and analysis should
have a physical component. Have your golf swing analysed from a biomechanical
standard and then fit it to your game. This is the basis to Get Fit
to Golf and the ChiroFit™ Program. An easy to access online assessment process which will highlight
and analyse your golf swing faults and then you can download a tailor-made
easy to use program all done online. All it takes is 30 minutes of
posture balancing three times a week to dramatically change your golf
swing and improve your game for life.
