Abstract

The purpose of this presentation was to provide an overview of key principles of biomechanically good golf swings and focus areas that have received substantial attention lately, such as the footground interaction and the functional swing plane-based kinematic sequence analysis. More field-based research is required to develop a holistic understanding of the mechanics in good golf swings. Employment of realistic swing models and development of meaningful research questions and analysis methods in close consultation with golf practitioners is essential in the process.
