A work and power (energy) analysis of the golf swing is presented as a method for evaluating the mechanics of the golf swing. [...] Key Method Two computer models were used to estimate the energy production, transfers, and conversions within the body and the golf club by employing standard methods of mechanics to calculate work of forces and torques, kinetic energies, strain energies, and power during the golf swing.Expand

TLDR
It revealed that a golf swing is a highly coordinated and individual motion and subject-to-subject variations were significant, and the importance of the wrists in generating club head velocity and orienting the club face was highlighted.
JOINT MOTIONS AFFECTING THE ENERGY TRANSFER TO THE CLUB DURING THE GOLF SWING
TLDR
Findings indicate that synchronised timing of the peak powers might represent an efficient strategy to maximise the energy transfer to the club during the golf swing.
A twenty-segment kinematics and kinetics model for analysing golf swing mechanics
The golf swing is a complex, multi-planar, three-dimensional (3D) motion sequence performed at very high speeds. These properties make biomechanical analysis of the golf swing difficult. Hence, the
Dynamic analysis for the release point of the golf swing (Effect of parameters of golf club and player)
TLDR
It can be seen that the derived simple approximate equations give physical insight of the phenomena at the release point and help to understand the effect of the club parameters on the dynamic behavior of the double pendulum at therelease point.
Development of a Full-Body Biomechanical Model of the Golf Swing
Abstract This paper presents the development, verification, and application of a full-body biomechanical model of the golf swing. The model consists of a variable full-body computer model of a human
Kinetic constrained optimization of the golf swing hub path.
TLDR
It was determined that it was possible for all subjects to increase their club head velocity at impact within their respective kinetic limitations through combined modifications to their respective hand path and club angular trajectories.
A continuous analytical shaft model for fast dynamic simulation of the golf swing
TLDR
The simulated behaviour of an advanced, continuously-parameterized analytical golf shaft model is evaluated using experimental data collected in constrained mechanical property experiments as well as golf swing motion capture experiments to enable golf shaft design optimization.
Title Study on Dynamic Analysis and Wearable Sensor Sy stem for Golf Swing
The dynamics research on the golf swing has been the subject of scientific debate for many years but there is little consensus regarding if golfers could benefit from releasing their wrists in the
Analysis of the Golf Swing
During an internship in Japan the authors participated in a research on the analysis of the golf swing. The golf swing kinematic data of four single digit handicap subjects was collected using a
A three-dimensional forward dynamic model of the golf swing optimized for ball carry distance
A 3D predictive golfer model can be a valuable tool for investigating the golf swing and designing new clubs. A forward dynamic model, which includes a four degree of freedom golfer model, a flexible

On the Swing Mechanics of a Matched Set of Golf Clubs
Abstract Some golf equipment manufacturers produce matched sets of golf clubs using an empirical method based on first moments of mass as well as shaft stiffness, whereas others claim to match sets
A Discussion of Iron Golf Club Head Inertia Tensors and Their Effects on the Golfer
This paper discusses the inertia tensors of iron golf club heads and their influence on the swing of a golfer and the behavior of the golf club. Inertia tensors of various five-iron club head
Dynamic models of golf clubs
This paper aims to improve a finite element model of a golf club by using measured experimental natural frequencies and mode shapes. Only the low frequency dynamics of the club are considered, making
Parametric acceleration - the effect of inward pull of the golf club at impact stage
The inward pull motion at the impact stage of the golf swing commonly observed with expert players was investigated in this paper. First, a model of nonconcentrated rotation was studied. It was found
The role of the shaft in the golf swing.
TLDR
The conclusion is, contrary to popular belief, that shaft bending flexibility plays a minor dynamic role in the golf swing and that the conventional tests associated with shaft specification are peculiarly inappropriate to the swing dynamics.
On the Dynamics of the Swing of a Golf Club
The Lagrangian method is used to obtain two coupled differential equations describing the motion of a simple model of the swing of a golf club. These equations are simplified by a special treatment
3D Kinematics and Kinetics of the Golf Swing
Three-dimensional kinematics and kinetics for a double pendulum model golf swing were determined for 6 subjects, who were filmed by two phase-locked Photosonics cameras. The film was digitally

TLDR
The findings demonstrate the importance of the trunk muscles in stabilizing and controlling the loading response for maximal power and accuracy in the golf er's swing.
The importance of stretching the "X-Factor" in the downswing of golf: The "X-Factor Stretch"
The “X-Factor” is a popular term for the relative rotation of shoulders with respect to hips during the golf swing. A relatively large X-Factor at top of backswing is thought to facilitate high club
