Variations in swinging technique lead to massive differences in results. Take a moment to consider the natural swinging motion of a golf club. The following graph is excerpted from Golf Science, Volume 1 from Schottenbauer Publishing.
- What are the maximum and minimum x positions of the club? The y positions? Write these as coordinate pairs (x, y).
- Sketch the real positions of the club, during the first swing back and forth. Does the club begin at the right or left?
- How many times does the club swing in the graph?
- How does an athletic swing of the club differ from the natural swing of the club?
