How Important Is The Shoulder When It Comes To Golf Swings
By John Swinger
What is one of the most vital things to consider when it comes to perfecting your swing? Although it may not strike you immediately, did you know that the shoulders are very important when it comes to making your swing all that it can be? Itís true: when it comes to smooth, elegant, and effective swings, itís all in the shoulders.

The Shoulder Plays an Major Role in Perfecting Your Swing

What is the shoulders function when it comes to swings? When most golfers, novice and seasoned alike, think of swings, they think of stance and knees and grips, but the shoulderís role is not immediately thought of. But the shoulders should receive their fair share of consideration because they are actually very vital when it comes to swings. The next time you are observing a player swing, look at their shoulders and you will see just how much they contribute to the overall effect of the swing.

The Function of the Shoulder in the Swing

So what just is the function of the shoulder in the swing? Watch any golfer take a swing and you will see that the shoulders are a powerful mass of muscles that can send your ball flying if you know how to control your swing. However, although the shoulders are a powerful force to be reckoned with, the details of their force are not so obvious. Medical researchers have pinpointed the exact function of the shoulders during a swing. Several electromyography studies have shown that the shoulder muscles play a large role in the force that goes into an average swing. More specifically, the shoulder muscles that are largely responsible for the force behind the average swing are known scientifically as the rotator cuff muscles, the pectorals muscles, and the latissimus dorsi.

Strain

Many chiropractors and other medical doctors have noted that many golfers have lower back problems. In fact, one of the most common golfer injuries reported in the United States is lower back strain, followed by wrist pain. It is important to avoid shoulder pain and strain by exercising before play, following good form, using a relaxed and comfortable grip, and wearing the correct types of shoes.

Shoulder Work to Improve Your Stance and Swing

What can you do to make your shoulders work for you so that your stance and swing is improved? Here are some ideas to help you get the most from your shoulder work and to avoid pain and strain. One general tip that you may find helpful is to keep your right shoulder down toward the target line. This is an especially good tip if you have been known to throw the club at your ball. This means that you are most likely an upper body swinger.

A Helpful Drill To Keep Your Shoulder in Check

Here is a helpful drill to help keep your shoulder in check. Make sure to keep your right arm close to your body. This will help keep your right shoulder close to your chin and closer to the target line. This form also helps keep your right shoulder moving smoothly through the shot, and it will help you complete your swing. This should also help control your shot from turning too much. Make sure to keep your head and your eyes fixed directly on your club head and let your hips move naturally during the motion. Try this drill as a warm up to your game and watch your shoulder work improve through your game.
