Angular Velocity – Slow to Go Fast

Gene Parente’s back with Physics lesson on “angular velocity” we know you’ll enjoy. Slow to go fast!

Gene Parente here from Golf Labs, back with another Physics lesson on “angular velocity” we know you’ll enjoy. Slow to go fast!

What does that mean? Most golfer’s first impulse when they pull the club back, just before they start the downswing, is to use all of their power. This causes you to jerk at the beginning of the downswing, which results in the club becoming lost in space and near impossible to square at impact.

Angular Velocity

The real key to increasing your clubhead speed is… “slow to go fast.” Watch as Gene explains angular velocity. If you can trust this approach, you’ll experience an increase in clubhead speed, distance, and accuracy. Who doesn’t want that!

    I’m a little confused. Are you saying to start the downswing slowly and then increase it midway through? Or are you saying to keep the downswing slow to ensure the clubhead stays on path?

      The key swing thought is to not “jerk” at the beginning of the downswing. There is a common misconception that to swing fast you have to exert all of your power from the beginning of the downswing. This early force causes your body to move and also the club to “cast” which has the opposite effect and diminishes overall club head speed.

      What I am trying to convey is to start either slowly or smoothly (depending on which works for you) and visualize reaching peak velocity at impact. You can also practice this without a ball during your warmup swings. The added benefit to this is that it will provide more consistency to the club head staying on path.
