Abstract

In order to analyze the 3D golf swing on different slopes in the course, six golfers of handicap under 7 swung on a adjustable tilt golf platform in up & down slopes situations. Their center of gravity displacement, joint angle velocity and club head speed in each swing phase were measured and analyzed. The intent of this kinematical measurement was to provide parameters for beginners who can swing on the slope ground in court and the measurements in this research found two main results as followed. One was the sequence of lower body lead upper body to swing which is the same trend as in the flat ground, and the other was more hip joint rotational movement and more club head speed could be obtained at follow through phase.
