Abstract

The purpose of this study was to test the effect of stretching on the amount of vertical force produced by experienced and novice golfers during a golf swing over time. We also wanted to identify the difference in the amount of vertical force produced by experienced and novice golfers. The final objective was to identify a difference in vertical force while using each club to see if club type has an effect. The main question fueling this study concerned what we could do to increase the amount of power our bodies produce. We attempted to achieve this by creating a stretching routine for the participants to complete every day. The stretching was targeted for specific muscle groups that are important during the golf swing. The objective was to make these groups more flexible and active, which would increase the vertical force capabilities of the participant. The overall results showed a significant increase in vertical force applied by the experienced golfer compared to the amateur golfer. However, there were no significant differences between the clubs.
