Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Weight transfer has been considered as one of the most important aspects of golf swing in golf coaching theories. Previous studies present conflicting and restricted findings on weight transfer. The purpose of this study was to determine if swing style influences weight transfer pattern by analyzing select center-of-pressure parameters using the approximate entropy method.
