4 Key Measures of an Effective Swing: Golf Swing Mechanics
SwingSmart Golf Analyzer INSTANTLY transmits 4 key measures of your golf swing mechanics to your iPhone/iPad and Android devices. Now you can take an objective look at every swing. COMPARE every swing. SAVE your Best Swing for every club.
The Free SwingSmart App INSTANTLY displays for each swing:
Swing tempo is a ratio that compares how long it takes to get to the top of your backswing versus the time to impact (your downswing).
Most PGA Tour stars have a 3 to 1 ratio as their Tempo. This means your backswing takes 3 times as long as your downswing to the ball.
2. SWING SPEED
Swing speed refers to the club head speed at impact. The higher the swing speed, the farther you’ll hit the ball (assuming you’ve hit it squarely on the sweet spot).
The SwingSmart app will compute an accurate swing speed at every point of your swing.
3. FACE ANGLE
Club face angle refers to the position of the club face, which ultimately dictates the spin and direction of the ball. If the club face is closed relative to your swing path, the ball has draw sidespin (ball traveling right to left for right handed golfers). If open, the ball has fade sidespin (ball traveling from left to right for right handed players). Face angle square to the swing path means little to no sidespin.
The 3 paths of the clubface on the downswing show the spin effects of face angle:
Looking at the direction of the ball as a result of Face Angle:
Face angle is relative to where you started your swing. This is why the SwingSmart includes the Peter Kostis Aiming Triangle -- use it as a visual aid to line up your club perfectly square to the target.
4. ANGLE OF ATTACK
Angle of attack refers to whether the club head is traveling in an upward, level or downward angle with respect to the ground at impact. Golfers can:
