Golf stroke mechanics is a way by which golf players make decisions and execute them to make shots. The decisions could be anything from selecting clubs to selecting shots. It consists of a pre stroke wherein golfers choose which club they want and their stance and the actual stroke.
Stroke is a very complex motion and there are still disagreements upon what constitutes a “good” golf swing. Golf swing has been studied by many scientists and mathematicians who constructed various equations to help explain the swing’s complexity. This was suggested by Nesbit and Serrano in Work and Power Analysis of the Golf Swing. The agreed criterion by researchers is that precise timing and mechanics are required for a successful and consistent golf swing. The entire swing motion should run in a fluid manner. The plane can be specified as horizontal or vertical.
Golf swing’s goal is to direct sufficient kinetic energy into club head so that when it comes into contact with ball, all energy is transferred to the ball, thus sending it into the flight.
