Somax Performance Institute finds that Palmer had the most efficient swing in the history of professional golf.

Somax Performance Institute (web:, the world leader in analyzing, measuring and improving sports performance, is proud to announce that their frame-by-frame and slow-motion analysis videos of Arnold Palmer’s golf swing have surpassed 207,000 views. The Institute, which works with high-profile individuals from the sports and business communities, improves sports performance far beyond conventional coaching and training with its unique program of motion analysis and Microfiber Reduction.

Many viewers have praised the Somax videos for helping them improve their golf swing.

"No one ever took Palmer’s swing seriously while he was playing or since simply because he had an unconventional finish” says Bob Prichard, Director of Somax Performance Institute. "But we found through our RSSSA (Russia) system of analysis that he had the most efficient swing we have ever measured in a professional golfer. His efficient swing propelled him to 92 tour victories, including four Masters. Professional and amateur golfers today would all benefit from adopting Palmer’s efficient swing mechanics."

These five enjoyable and instructive Palmer golf swing analysis videos are available for viewing on the Somax Performance Institute YouTube channel at

RSSSA stands for Range, Sequence, Separation, Speed and Alignment.

By measuring and improving Range, or how many degrees the parts of the body move, Somax has been able to predict injuries in athletes as much as a year in advance, as well as increase average driving distance from 290 to 350.

By measuring and improving Sequence, or the order in which golfers move the parts of their body, Somax has been able to help golfers improve their consistency with all their clubs. One tour player quadrupled her income after improving her Sequence.

By measuring and improving Separation, or the amount of time between movements, Somax has increased the longest drive of a pro golfer from 295 to 400.

By measuring and improving Speed, or the speed of hip rotation, Somax has added 25 mph to golf swing speed in less than four weeks.

By measuring and improving Alignment, Somax has improved accuracy in golfer’s drives from 55% to 92%.

The Somax RSSSA system of analysis has been proven to be not only simpler than     computerized analysis, but more successful in identifying inefficiencies that can be     improved to boost performance.
