Christina Ricci’s Tip of the Week
Ground Force Reaction
In this Tip of the Week, I get scientific.
Knowledge is power and in this case…power in our golf swing. To get that power we are going to use the ground, our only connection to the ground and a pure energy source. It’s true and it’s scientific. Newton’s third law of reaction: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. So when you put force into the ground, it pushes you back with equal and opposite force.
So for example, if you are not placing any pressure into the ground and simply standing there trying to make a swing, the energy delivered will be minimal. If on the other hand, you make a conscious and deliberate effort to enforce the proper foot pressure into the ground, the energy delivered will deliver lots of power for your golf swing.
So let’s get enforcing the force!
