Technical Aspect

Style and technique are two different things. Whatever the sporting discipline and despite the fact that a trainer may teach all the athletes working with him the same technique, it would be impossible to find two of them with completely the same action. A number of golfers may use the same technical model, but the style will vary from one individual to another because of the unique morphological and physiological characteristics of each, among other things.

In a given sport different technical models may of course exist, each intended to help participants perform better. Inevitably, however, some are more effective than others. It's usually the case that as time goes by technical models are either improved or replaced by more efficient ones. So, from a biomechanical point of view there is always a technical model that is held to provide the most effective way to perform in the high jump, long jump, discus, javelin, swimming, running… and to make a golf swing. The "perfect swing" would represent the acme of golf technique. Not only would it be the most efficient technical model in existence, but also it would also achieve the utmost of efficacy, and therefore could not be improved upon. ' After all, that's what being perfect means!

Is the "perfect swing" myth or reality? The book: Golf: The Secret Valley and the Perfect Swing explains why the model of the golf swing it describes seems to have reached limits that cannot be pushed back any further—in other words the utmost in efficacy and simplicity. On the one hand, almost all the muscles of the human body are brought into play to produce the greatest amount of energy possible, while at the same time no deliberate manipulation of the hands or arms is required.

Even more fascinating is the fact that the technical model of the "perfect swing" represents not only the ideal way to play a long shot but also to putt, chip, pitch, and play almost any golf stroke. In normal playing conditions, whether you need to play a 6-foot putt, a 15-foot chip shot, a 280-yard drive, pitch over an obstacle, a full 5-iron with fade or maybe draw, the ideal technique remains the same, and no deliberate manipulation of the hands or arms is required.
