Mini Golf-Talk Series

Mini golf-talk series are for those who are interested in golf biomechanics but not serious enough to take the certification courses. These series are in general developed for a broader audience who do not have much exposure to biomechanics before and can be formatted to 2-4 hour sessions.

Currently, the following mini-talk series are available:

If you are interested in hosting any of the mini golf-talk series, please contact Dr. Kwon.

1. Biomechanically Robust Golf Swing (BRGS)Functional Double Peldulum

This talk covers key principles of a mechanically and biomechanically robust golf swing. A set of practical and effective drills will be presented at the end of the lecture as well. The main topics are:

  • Use the ground well.
  • Maximize the clubhead speed.
  • Use a flowing motion.
  • Involve the whole body.
  • What to do to develop a BRGS?


2. Use the Ground WellGRF Moment

This talk focuses on the foot-ground interaction, one of the most important mechanical aspects of the golf swing. A key angular concept, moment of force (torque), will be introduced first and the angular role of the ground reaction force and moment will be discussed based on the concept. Two main torque generation mechanisms of the golf swing will be explained. The main topics are:

  • Moment of force (torque)
  • Various effects of the ground reaction force
  • Ground reaction force (GRF) / moment (GRM)
  • Center of pressure (COP)
  • Moments from the foot-ground interaction
  • Moment patterns
  • Swing styles
