Pressure can be defined as force. The more force a golfer applies into the ground as they begin their golf swing, the more force is reciprocated (Newton’s Third Law) during the downswing. Pressure is the glue that puts the golf positions into action. Pressure can be measured using pressure mats to determine how much force is being applied throughout the swing. Specifically how much force is being applied into the ground. Top players get up to 85 percent of their pressure into the trail leg as early as the takeaway. Most recreational players never get there, or get there too late.
