If we take tennis we see about 4 people on the men side winning and on the ladies its like one. Federer, Djokovic, Nadal, Murray and williams for the ladies.
In golf the same tendency is there, Jordan speith, Lydia Ko, Inbee park etc..
So what makes them raise above the rest so often?
Here is one key, none knows out there the why that is, they all search for it. No trainer, no coach no books will tell you what that is that makes them a winner.
Isn’t that fascinating say?
One of the things I do as I coach people to do better is to build better systems to do better. Yea normally people just coach them with whatever system they been taught but I don’t fit that role as I evolve what I do constantly.
I wont accept that you cant play at your best due to some crap technique theory Monte or iteachgolf teach you in golfwrx and then think they know what they are doing that wont work for me.
One could say that the 10000 hour rule works to produce experts in a field that deliberate practice is the key and its part of it for sure but you see what has happen to thedanplan that he got stuck with swing mechanics, hurt his back and I knew that would be a risk he would be exposed to. So why isn’t Dan then able to succeed better after so many hours dedicated to the task? In him you see the limitation of the modern swing gury experts like waldron, like iteachgolf, like Monte, like Haney, Harmon, Leadbetter, Foley and Como and whatever else they are called out there.
I know why what they teach wont work so well. They wont come and ask me though. If they do I say, pay up, I did the work so well got to pay me dude.
The 10k hour rule for master and expert in a field is just one bit of the equation.
Federer need to change his mechanics to have more power in his game to push djokovic more. Its evident for me that he lacks that and he needs to adjust what he do to take that step up. If your game have a weakness then for some players that wont be good enough to win against them even if you have it easy vs everyone else.
Swing mechanics in golf for example is simple enough to get down in 3 weeks even for a beginner in golf. That’s the difference with swing mechanics foundation as what I teach is easier to learn and do. It wont mean you be a tour pro in 3 weeks but you can go play well enough as an amateur.
Thedanplan miss out on a few things one is mechanics obviously as if he had asked me he would been much better off today. He be way ahead of his schedule. He also lack the performance mode which is based on science and Nicklaus performance.
Since I build systems I had to analyze golf and to ask questions off, what does it take really? Matching stats and improving them was one area I checked, so improving proximity to hole on approach shots, and the system I developed can teach you a 20 yard proximity which btw is 10 yards better than the best on PGA tour currently.
Knowing that’s doable and possible imagine thedanplan having that stats under his belt he be on his way shooting 10-15 shot better than he is able to today.
Once you know you can do such numbers and stats that’s a confidence boost and then you can plan your game differently than anyone else can out there that you compete against.
However, what makes you a winner then?
The ability to be consistently able to go into performance mode.
Those that win have learned that by accident. They have no real idea what they are doing and many golfers who changed their swing also lost their game, like Monte, like the guy down under and they never got it back btw……once lost its gone for them and they don’t know why.
20 years ago I learned about the performance mode as I did a workshop for 2 days I was able to do just that and then it never went away as I always been able to do it and not just in workshops, when gaming, when I do other sports and such like coaching.
I tried to map it down but NLP sucked ass for it, so did Mythoself and so did everything else so I had to develop my own tools.
Unlocking the winning mind.
The RBIm Golf system
Once you start that path and get trained into how to think and do your performance your going to reach your optimal performance potential your genetic and physical make up has.
You move pass the technique at some point, your swing just works and wont need any fixing anymore you can trust it as you own it. You have feel and evidence your doing it right as you learn it. Once learned you move into applied performance mode along with the putting system and your in for a simplified game that allows you to focus on what’s essential.
You understand the technique that everyone else talks about and works on is so wrong as you wont need anymore fixing. You play faster as you need less time to decide the shot needed to make. There are no more difficult shots and your green reading is 100% correct each time as you leave guesswork out of that and then you putts are deadly accurate when you putt.
Your confidence even before you play is beyond anything you ever known.
When Nicklaus hit his 8i on hole 16 1986 in the Masters and bend down to pick up his peg his kid said, “be right” and Nicklaus while still bending down said, it is.
How did he know?
The same way everyone who wins knows.
Once you have access to that level of performance, your in for a treat.
