The 27th annual conference of the international society for
biomechanics in the sports (ISBS) took place in Limerick from
August 17th to August 21st.
It was the first time that the
Carving golf swing technique was introduced to an international,
Dr. Ferdinand Tusker and Florian Kreuzpointner showed on a poster
the differences in the horizontal force while executing the
Carving golf swing technique and the classical golf swing. The
Carving golf swing produces around 75% reduced horizontal momentum.
That means a clearly smaller lateral shift of the body which
is also a movement-technical basis for relieved learning of
the Carving Golf technique.
The people who are interested in spoon shot and biomechanics
analyzed the results and discussed with much commitment the
pro and cons of both techniques. Some which showed up in relation
to the new transaction type very skeptically. They got suggestions
for thinking it over in the process of the congress. Consuming
up one can note that Carving golf is continued to be observed
with high interest. The trade is waiting for further research
results at this interesting new movement technique.
