Dynamic Balance
Golf is all about balance - Static and Dynamic. Balance should flow through the entire swing, in one fluid action. From the time you start your backswing, to the time you finish your follow through, you should always be in balance. The diagram below illustrates how the Swing Governor governs Pressure, COG and Dynamic Balance for a straight shot.

Benefits
1.The Swing Governor keeps you in balance while on the practice range fine tuning your swing. If you are not in dynamic balance, your mind is not solely focused on your swing change but being distracted into balancing the body – balance has a much higher priority than your swing change!
2.Myelin is formed when you repeatedly perform precision movements. This holy grail of training is promoted by the Swing Governor ensuring you are practising correctly. more info on Myelin
3. Retention factor: After 5-10 minutes your body & mind will be able feel the balance so you can stop using the Swing Governor for this session

Why has the development of the golf swing been dormant for so long ?  Its because for the last 100 years golf teachers have not understood the importance of the Centrifugal  Force Law, and the Kinetic Chain, consequently every teacher had their own interpretation of the golf swing. Nowdays numerous golf articles & instructions are focusing on Centrifugal Forces and the Kinetic Chain, as it makes common sense

When you twirl a string with a weight at the end of it, you are witnessing Centrifugal forces at work. Your wrists move a little then appear to stop, enabling the Centrifugal force to whip the weight around. You dont have to move you wrists fast or hard but the weight at the end of the string is accelearting at a much, much higher rate than the wrists. This is a Scientific fact not a myth

This is similar to a golf swing, your hips start the downswing then momentarily "decelerate", springboarding the the shoulders, hands & club to whip through into the back of the ball.


Centrifugal Acceleration

The graph on the right shows an ideal kinetic chain sequence with the red line being the Hips, blue the Shoulders and green the Arms. Address is to the left of the player, Top is the middle black line and Impact is the next solid line to the right. As you can see all body segments, hips, shoulders & arms accelerate then decelerate before impact, allowing the club to whips through the ball using centrifugal force .

A lot of golfers have not been told or taught this vital fact and consequently, spin their hips through impact as fast as they can... just causing untold faults

The Swing Governor assists the ideal Kinetic Chain sequence by initating the downswing with the Hips then momentarily DECELERATING the hips. This can be seen by the red line accelerating vertically for a while then moving down or decelerating. This has a domino reaction, and the process repeats for the Shoulders and Hands.

 

Deceleration
The Swing Governor™ was specially designed to assist with teaching the golf swing, based on the Kinetic Chain sequence and Centrifugal Force. An efficient golf swing then occurs when you swing using centrifugal force, rather than brute force


Swing Governor

Incorporating the KISS may take a bit of time and practice. But as long as you’re working on Centrifugal fundamentals, you’ll develop a consistently good golf swing. For many golfers, the Kiss of golf is probably the missing link in their game. With the use of the Swing Governor™ and the video drills, your game should move to another level.

For simplicity, we may make certain assumptions and keep sections brief so that the Kiss Concept is not lost in lengthy jargon, (then we will be back to where we were 100 years ago)

The Kiss concept has two elements : Get Ready & Swing

Get Ready: You can quickly learn these because you can work on them wherever you are, as you don't need to swing a club, so master these things first before progressing. 1. Grip - 2. Posture - 3. Stance & Alignment - 4. Visualization

Swing: You need space & time to learn these as you need to swing a club. 1. Backswing - 2. Downswing - 3. Finish


1. Get Ready

Grip is how you hold the club. Your hands should be fixed on the club & they don’t move. Their only job is to hold on to the club, as lightly as possible, so that Centrifugal forces are not hindered during the golf swing . There are three conventional grips, in order of preference:

1. The Overlap, called the single overlap:
The pinkie of your right hand overlaps the index finger of your left hand.
2. Interlock:
The pinkie of your right hand and the index finger of your left hand intertwine (interlock), or wrap around each other.
3. Ten finger, commonly known as the baseball grip:
All ten, fingers touch the grip of the club; they don’t overlap or interlock. (we do not recommend this grip)

We recommend the Overlap & Interlock grips as long as you also meet these basic guidelines:

The grip is neutral, so the backs of both hands oppose each other, and the palms are facing each other.
The club is held in your fingers, the middle digits of the fingers, and not the palms.
The butt end of the club is held down by the palm of the left hand.
The thumb of the left hand is not extended down the center of the shaft.
When you close down with your right hand, the “V” formed by your thumb and index finger points towards your right shoulder.
Grip pressure needs to be as light as possible without losing control of the club.

The grip is something you should get sorted out right from the start, and then check it when you set up to the ball. Your grip is not something you should be playing with and changing too often

Posture is the foundation of the swing. If you have a problem here, it is bound to show up later in your swing. The Swing Governor™ will naturally put you into most of the positions described below.

Stance: Feet should be shoulder width, both feet slightly flared, toes pointing out about five to ten degrees.

 

Alignment

A great swing and poor alignment does not make for a happy golfer. Because your knees are holding the Swing Governor™ , alignment again comes easily. You will feel what it is like to have your feet, knees, hips and shoulders all aligned when you hit a shot.. it makes it so much easier.

Knee flex: Minimal knee flex. If you lock your legs and then unlock and slightly bend them, that’s all the flex you need.

Bending from the hips: It’s important to bend from the hip sockets, don’t slouch from the shoulders.

Back: Your back remains straight, then bend with that straight back from your hips.

Hands and Arms: Your hands and arms should hang directly below the shoulders.

Head: Your head should be looking at the back of the ball, and remains so until after impact

 

Visualization Great golfers have vivid imaginations. Not only can they see the shot they have in mind and how & where the ball will fly, but they also can "Feel" the shot. With the Swing Governor engaging the anticipatory muscles, the Transverse Abdominus, visualize the shot and have your core muscles "feel" the shot as well. It is only when your core muscles can feel how hard to hit it, and in which direction, will this feeling be relayed to the brain, which in turn instructs the bigger muscles to execute the shot. Try this routine it will surprise you.

 


2. Swing Backswing - where Power is generated.

In order to generate Centrifugal power you need to coil your body in the right sequence and by the right amount. The Swing Governor™ is the tool to assist you with this sequential coil.

How: The Swing Governor™ initially keeps the lower body stable, while your upper body begins to coil, generating resistance/torque between the upper & lower body. Without the presence of the Swing Governor™ , it is so easy just to turn the hips with the shoulders, and miss out on all this power.
From address (far left pic) the Hands move a little to start the backswing, followed with small moves by the Shoulders, Torso, Hips & Knees. All these small movements in sequence, have resulted in a powerful, yet relaxed, 70-90 degree shoulder turn

 

The Downswing starts by turning your knees which then "bumps" the hip and posts your front leg. Your lower body will be stable & "anchored" allowing you to release the upper body and club through the ball. The hands are passive through the downswing and their role is to hang on to the club. The inertia of the club and arms takes you through to your finish position.

The Downswing is a complex 3D move as David Leadbetter says, so it is difficult to explain & teach. The Swing Governor™ to the rescue again. The patented design will have you mastering this vital move in no time, by practicing the supplied Video Drills.

Explaining this further ... At the beginning of the downswing, the spring in the Swing Governor is fully compressed and consequently encourages the knees/hips to initiate the downswing. Once the hips start going forward, the Swing Governor will push the front foot forward & perpendicular so it "posts" This action causes the Hips to momentarily Decelerate and the Swing Governor slides out, just as centifugal acceleration takes over & whips the Shoulders, Hands & club through into the back of the ball. This may sound complicated, but all this is done with no conscious effort when you are using the Swing Governor

From Top of Backswing(far left pic)1. The Left Knee and Hip move a little laterally to start the downswing. 2.Next the front leg has posted and the Hips have momentarily Decelerated. 3.The Shoulders now accelerate. 4.The Swing Governor will now begin to slide out with the hands comimg through last, unleashing all that centrifugal force through impact. 5.The Swing Governor has released completely allowing a natural modern finish position. Note: Between pic 1 and pic 2 the Hips have turned a lot, however between pics 2, 3 & 4 they have not moved much or "Decelerated" which promotes centrifugal acceleration
