Clubhead speed in the direction of the
The diagram below compares the club head speed dynamics of a 67
year old amatuer player using the Carving Golf Technique and the
coventional technique of a golf teaching professional swinging
with reduced action. The two curves are virtually identical.
Clubhead speed in follow-through towards target (7 iron).
Speed towards target minus (negative) M/Sec
Speed away from target plus (positive) M/Sec

It should be noted for
the explanation of the curve that in passing the so-called
3 o'clock or 9 o'clock position during the follow-through
that the clubhead speed curve crosses the "0"-line
as well as produces the largest value during ball contact.
The findings of the Department of Sports
Science during the study of the two techniques and with the practical
applications of the Carving Golf School, shows that by using elements
of both the classic fundamentals of the golf swing and the technique
of the Carving Golf School, performance can be enhanced by the golf
professional. However, for the beginning player or amateur, the
technique of the Carving Golf School is sufficient for achieving
a similar result of club head speed and swing dynamics, as compared
to conventional methods.
