HOW DO YOU
ANALYZE YOUR OWN SWING?
"I had a chance to
run your program, it is so cool. I'm 59 and not much amazes me anymore,
but your program is so simple to use, easy to
understand, and works like you said it would."

|Analyzing a Golf Swing
There are many approaches to analyzing the golf
swing. By playing the sequence in slow motion and using the drawing tools you will
be able to analyze each important aspect of the golf swing. The "Autoreverse"
feature is an especially powerful aid in focusing on the movements within each
portion of your swing. Below are some
suggestions for swing analysis along with actual images of an amateur golfer.
- The Swing Plane
The bottom line of the swing plane should be drawn from the club head, up the
club shaft and through the golfers belt (approximately). The top line
should be drawn from the club head through the golfers shoulders, or slightly
higher. The golf club should remain within these lines throughout the entire
takeaway and downswing, up until impact. It is especially important that the
club head be inside these lines as it approaches the ball
A line has been added to observe the spine angle. The golfer should
maintain his spine parallel to this line as closely as possible throughout the
backswing and downswing toward impact, and immediately thereafter. This angle
is usually what is lost when you hear people telling you to "keep your head
Position at "the top"
The hands should ideally be positioned on, or very close to the top line
of the swing plane. This golfer has a tendency to keep his hands too low
during the takeaway. The hands need to be closer to the top line. You will
also note that he has not kept his initial spine angle as well as he should
(i.e. he has "stood up" slightly).
The back knee should maintain it's flex throughout the takeaway. Many
amateur golfers tend to "stand up" on their back leg, causing the "reverse-C"
pivot and subsequent loss of power. A green line has been added to draw
attention to the knee
Here you will see exactly what it looks like at 'the moment of truth".
This golfer has come "up" very slightly, losing some of the the spine angle he
had at address and at the top of swing position... not bad... but not quite perfect. Ideally the
yellow line should be
centered in the base of the neck, at the top of the spine at this moment. Look
closely and you can see the golf ball on it's way!
Face-On Setup Analysis
This view allows you to analyze your hand position, ball position, etc.
This golfer has the ball positioned correctly in his stance, just slightly to
the front of "center", although as he progresses he will likely want
to move the ball even farther forward (toward the target). Note that the hands are slightly ahead of the ball
position as well (middle line).
Top of the Backswing Analysis
You will see the extent to which you are "swaying" during the takeaway,
and how close to "parallel" you stop the club at the top of the takeaway. This
golfer has stood up ever so slightly (compare head position with previous
Analyze the "moment of truth"! The golfers weight should be behind the
ball but moving toward the target. A good body turn is evident with the hips
and chest pointing slightly toward the target.
