Achieve Consistency with the Kinematic Sequence What is the best way to hit a golf ball? Consistently! Consistency is the number one request I get when giving lessons, followed by hitting the ball farther. The jury is back on how to efficiently (and consistently) strike a golf ball; it is called the kinematic sequence. As shown in the illustration above, at the top of your backswing, the first move is the lower body followed by the thoracic spine, arms, and finally club. It sounds intimidating but all it really means is that you use your athleticism from the ground up. Some of you may have seen me teaching or swinging with a training aid called the Power Fan on the range. So far, this is the best device that I have found to aid in teaching the kinematic sequence of the golf swing. We have three different sizes, and if you’d like to give it a test drive or discuss the biomechanics of the golf swing, let me know. I’d be happy help you with your consistency!
