The Golf Physical Screen is the first step in understanding more about your golf swing and your physical abilities. Using the same physical screen as tour players, our TPI certified professionals will screen each golfer for musculoskeletal imbalances that may be limiting the efficiency of your swing.
OSU Performance Golf uses the latest technology to study your golf swing in intricate detail. By creating a true 3¬D representation of your swing, we can capture each body segment throughout the swing and determine its contribution to generating consistent club head speed.
One of the ways we examine your golf swing is by calculating your “kinematic sequence.” The kinematic sequence is a representation of how efficiently you generate and tranfer energy from your hips to trunk to arms to the club during your downswing. A proper kinematic sequence is the key to an efficient golf swing, regardless of your swing style, and is a critical tool in improving golf performance. Other parameters we calculate and may utilize in our analysis of your swing may include weight shift, X-factor stretch, and joint torques. In combination with the Golf Screen, 3-D Motion Analysis can help pinpoint where physical limitations may be hindering you from getting the most power out of your swing or where they may be forcing you to load your body in ways that might lead to injury.
