Abstract: 
Assessing a coach’s technical knowledge of a sporting technique can
reveal measureable biomechanical parameters associated with a
successful performance. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to
identify the key technical parameters that golf coaches associate with a
successful golf swing. Sixteen high-level golf coaches were observed
coaching a highly skilled golfer after which they participated in a semistructured
interview regarding their technical analysis of the golf swing. The
data were inductively analysed and five intrinsically linked key technical
parameters were identified: ‘Posture’, Body Rotation’, ‘Arm and Wrist
Action’, ‘Sequential Movement and Body Segments’ and ‘Club Motion’.
The parameters Posture and Body Rotation were further sub-categorised
and compared to the existing biomechanical literature whereby gaps in
knowledge were identified. The results of this study can be used to guide
future golf biomechanics research and coaching technologies.
