The Science of Putting & Is There Any Need For Science In The Putt … A special report by Kiran Kanwar.
Is there any need for science in the putt, and if so, why?
There are, it often seems, a thousand brands of putters and an equal number of putting styles out there, and every golfer, whether beginner or pro, usually takes two putts to put the ball into the hole from literally anywhere. So, it must not be a big deal, where “anything goes” right?
In fact, standing beside the putting ...

So much has been said about Ground Reaction Force (GRF) in golf that it has been subjected to very strange interpretations by different members of the world’s golfing fraternity.
What is GRF? How can a golfer use it to increase club speed (in theory)? CAN a golfer use it to increase club speed (in practice)?
There is much confusion about certain aspects of GRF and even more about how to beneficially harness it. The advantage of being a golf-instructor/golf-swing-researcher is ...

Leadbetter’s A Swing
David Leadbetter has put together a team of experts to assess and promote his “A swing”. One of the panel of experts is J. J. Rivet, the head biomechanist of the European Tour Performance Institute.
According to Rivet, the new swing requires 30% less energy and shifts “weight” (centre of mass) 15% less too. At the same time, there is 10% more shoulder rotation in ...

Only one of the #ElectricEight (Jordan, Justin, Bill, Billy, Rickie, Zach, Patrick and Paul) whose #GolfScience is being followed every week in www.golfbytourmiss.com is competing in this week’s 2016 Sony Open in Hawaii – Zach Johnson.
As Zach is most in the news for his switch to a new brand of clubs ($5000 a set), let’s study the science behind the PXG golf clubs now in his bag (information from the manufacturer’s website). PXG, incidentally, ...
Jordan Spieth, Patrick Reed, Rickie Fowler, Bill Haas, Zach Johnson are in the fray.
All members of the #ElectricEight of www.golfbytourmiss.com. Maximizing their time there is not merely about winning but also about incorporating all possible golf sciences to give themselves an edge – all the time. And having fun while at it – by ‘checking out’ local offerings.
An important ‘local offering’ of Hawaii is the Musa genus of fruit – the ubiquitous banana. A scientific paper ...
