Ground Force In The Golf Swing

by Steve | Last Updated: 15 April 2021

Use Ground Force in Your Swing to your advantage

To experience what is termed as ground force, try making a backswing with your leading foot pulled back so it’s toe is level with the back foots’ heel. 

Feel your weight compress down into the ground whilst retaining the flex in the back knee. 

This is powerful! 

It’s like the string on a crossbow being pulled into its taught firing position. 

The lathe building energy and the stock providing resistance ready to release the string and provide energy to the arrow. 

The golf swing is no different. 

The upper body builds energy as the lower body provides resistance ready for the club to be propelled forward and provide energy to the ball.

Happy Golfing
