# How To Use Ground Forces In The Golf Swing?

• Ground Reaction Force is the force exerted by the ground on a body in contact with it. So when you are trying to move in the golf swing, you have to push on the ground and the ground then pushes back on you at the opposite direction which causes your body to move. Let’s imagine your golf ball has landed on thick ice.

## What is ground force in golf?

Ground Reaction Force is the force exerted by the ground on a body in contact with it. So when you are trying to move in the golf swing, you have to push on the ground and the ground then pushes back on you at the opposite direction which causes your body to move.

## What is the name of golf ground?

Golf Course Golf is played on a course, and the green area of the course is known as the fairway. The typical course consists of 18 holes, although golfers can play a 9-hole course through twice to play a full game of 18 holes.

## When standing still the vertical ground reaction force is equal to?

The vertical component of force (figure 1) is always affected by the constant acceleration of gravity. Therefore, when standing still at address, the vertical GRF experienced by the golfer is equal to the golfer’s weight (the force of body mass caused by gravity alone).

## What is Mediolateral ground reaction force?

The ground responds by applying an equal and opposite ground reaction force to each foot. The mediolateral acceleration of the mass center is equal to the mediolateral ground reation force divided by body mass (Davis and Kaufman, 2006).
