Response to If....


On the downswing pronounced pressure peaks for both the right hand and left thumb can be seen. First, at 0.10 seconds before impact, a peak force of 18 pounds (80 N) was applied to the left thumb transducer. .... The right hand impulse reached a peak of 8 pounds (35 N) later in the downswing (.05 seconds before impact). ...

The golfer's tight hand pressure decreased to zero at impact, indicating that he did not continue to push with his right hand while striking the ball. At impact the golfer had firm control with his left hand as a force of 10 pounds (44 N) was experienced by both left hand transduers. Left hand pressure peaked after impact for this golfer. In Summary, the golfer's grip pressure characteristics are much as recommended by Watson (1978). ....

.05 seconds is where the trail wrist is cocked and the lever with a 10 finger grip is shorter. I think it is similar to throwing a ball. The grip pressure is 0 at release there also...

Regards, Herbert
