A template is a frame that fits in a particular way, its based on what works.
Once the template was formed then the coding to develop the instruction manual took place.
- The power move.
- The pivot impact move
- The swing move.
Over the weeks I worked on getting things working within the framework of the template. I had to find ways to teach a particular movement since if I couldn’t do it for some reason i found a way to isolate the movement to do it.
During this it become obvious that coordination was at best, difficult to get right not to say if I ever could. Yesterday I had a breakthrough based on perceptions and my work with the brain then overlapped into golf it made sense and went and hit a bucket and was striping things.
I knew one thing, this I can do.
Still got a few things to improve but ball striking was working. I knew I can swing any club now without any issues what so ever. It was done, completed the task of finding the code for the golf swing to fit the framework of the template.
Having a template means you know what should be there to make it work. It don’t mean you can do it but knowing what needs to be there however allows you a sorting program for feedback to include what should be there vs what shouldn’t. The code to transfer skills and I call them “moves” as your moving to include the skills needed are training formats that teaches you the skills needed as your isolating the movements one needs to have.
so for me it took 6 weeks to have a swing that wont go away ever.
I still need to work on some take away and back swing still as I have 25 years of movements learned that will be next on the list to do.
My knowledge and understanding why golf been difficult to learn has taken a quantum leap along the way. If I can transform my swing and amateur mechanics after 25 or so years into a pro level down the line means one can start rewriting the difficulty factor into something else.
While I am tired, resting from Saturdays round I found myself the last few days tinkering and today that went into the big lightbulb moment.
While I still have a bit to go my ball striking improved directly beyond anything I ever done before. It went from complex to, easy.
Rain air, cold, in pain and tired yea, figure I move around on the range a bit anyhow. Forecast shows a rainy tomorrow, good as I can rest as I feel like someone hurricaned me.
Stenson goes against Adam Young and world leading bio mechanical experts and is more accurate and longer than what Adam Young states and those experts.
Listen to the Golf God I know
Watching PGA golf trainers means they teach with a technique focus or even explain what’s going on but neither of those makes it doable to do for you.
It just makes you have information.
Your then satisfied as you think you understand but in reality your not. You then find that out on the range and when playing and start to believe you didn’t understand the instruction.
Now your blaming yourself when the teaching was lacking.
That leads to a merry go round a never ending search for the magic secret Ben Hogan that some people believe he had.
Now the above video is a typical merry go round, you think its good and you understand but when testing you cant do it.
More information isn’t the solution.
What we want is to apply the instruction to match what happens so we can feel the difference.
I made a video about the power move for the inside group, it means to isolate the one needed thing people need to feel and master to make a pro level impact. Release happens by itself no need to manipulate the wrists or such.
However one need to feel the difference as when you do, its effortless.
When you do a golf swing its suppose to feel, effortless.
How do explain effortless with more information and even more technical know how what happens when you swing?
Answer is, you cant.
The instruction set is then worthless.
You need to relate the instruction set to can do and identify what your suppose to feel. I know some will say feel is different and it really isn’t.
What typically happens is that people when they swing effortlessly think its wrong due to them are being so sued to feel effort and make slow shitty swings all day for years so your tuned to shit. When your expose to pro level swinging your brain will immediately take this as wrong as it will feel wrong according to your beliefs and information about the subject.
Its why as a scientist I find it important to measure and find the evidence due to then one can correlate what one does to understand that this is how it should feel like. I can lucky enough correlate a lot to Hans and just ask him if he fells this or that and he have confirmed such over the years.
We need better definitions, isolate the movement and feel and then measure with evidence when one does it right and then understand this is how it feels like swinging like a pro, effortless.
Naturally one need to be able to correlate the feel vs measured result achieved and then update ones beliefs accordingly to accept the new found action. I find a lot of people are unable to accept the new result as it doesn’t fit their expected assumed reality what’s true with golf or any other sport for that matter.
The problem then are:
- To much faith with information
- To much faith in explaining what to do and technique.
- Beliefs about what happens that isn’t happening.
Solutions are to understand:
- Isolate the movement to feel the difference
- Measure the result one achieved with feel and correlate and accept.
- Repeat the movement to reach “can do” criteria.
Isolating in that way means once the individual can do it to feel the difference and replicate then they have a set reference to do which then will always work for them.
Sources to instructions
When I develop an instruction it may not be from one source alone but several and I look for those that are ball strikers, good such ones. You want to study good sources people that can do, if they can explain it well or not is secondary at least you know they are doing something that works.
Each improvement I do is put under the microscope and then taken from there and analyzed further to find if I understand the subject better to develop a better instruction. In the recent days I been researching and updated my instruction sets.
Once tested they go trough the same evaluation, as once tested one can either discard them or refine them.
I found the importance to a pro impact release pattern needs to be felt due to if you know that then you can feel if your not doing that.
Your then on the path of self corrections.
If you know what its like then you will adapt to start doing more correct movements.
Summer heat has arrived.
I be having a few days relaxing as I been overextending myself a bit lately. Time to heal up and be ready for the next work to happen. My home course which I play at is a up and down course, it has more hills up and down that really take a toll on you walking without golf.
Playing golf, dragging a bag well its then a physical fitness test. One reason I like it for sure.
Looking at swing trainers out there on the youtube, some common things are true for those that understand they all started to do a Mike Austin mechanic. While not there in the pivot still allows them to swing and play greatly. Adding the pivot would bring them into the legendary territory.
So some get there, then when explaining it goes south again, some you wont understand as it wont help you reach it. I analyzed and then understood what they were doing, diversity is a good thing difference of opinion is a good thing as it allows you to reach a consensus what works or not.
So I designed a drill, that when you do it allows you to isolate the nr1 reason that a golf swing works. The essence the core the secret. Obviously when you know it isn’t then a secret, obviously but before you do understand you wont know what it is. You may watch swings until your blue in the face but you wont see it.
Differential diagnosis is a good way to ensure a diverse pool of difference.
I found I now can hit like a pro when I was an amateur for 25 years that now is gone. Its a bit like cheating it feels so, easy. Next up is playing once course opens up, then map distances and then find out how this is going to work out for my game.
Its now uncharted territory, all new exciting, surprising moments awaits that I never did dream was doable or possible to feel like a pro is absolutely a blast.
When you reach this moment as I did, its a wonderful thing as suddenly you understand why you didn’t see it, or did understand and what to do to train someone now with precision as you identified the single thing that’s needed to get right. My mind correlates this and goes ah yes obvious now. I reached this by not assuming what people told me was true, it never was. Then I had to dig trough all the factors and variables and forget the simple lesson as I dug trough Bruce lee actions and found them out and those helped also along the way to do things.
For an outsider it may seem like magic.
My background working with clients helped also as understanding someone is a good way to understand what someone also do. Magic or talent are concepts people sue when they don’t understand the magician when he levitate trough the air or catch a bullet. We applaud the illusion but never goes to find out how it works to keep the illusion real.
Once you find the truth and can do then the world becomes truly magical.
Then your a Golf God
Are there people able to hit a golf ball great? Absolutely but then when they try to explain it then its uncommon to make it so it actually make sense to do and we find ourselves trapped in our own perceptual patterns once again. We start over instead of keep on digging for the truth as common it may be to nominate its really uncommon to find.
Developing models creating blueprints “templates” and then applying the template “transfer of skills” allows the individual to reach Eureka the Nirvana of golf in this case as I developed such a blueprint.
Once I could do I also knew I could improve the template itself focusing on essence and developing a better instruction to the skill itself.
The Divine right as a Golf God.
The feeling of awesomeness knowing this is now so easy its a bit like cheating and none been able to do it in the history of golf?
Indeed a Golf God.
A special thanks to Mike Austin is in place.
Someone said, easier to see when Hans swings what Mike Austin did then when Mike did swing.
High praise indeed, thank you.
Mike was known to hit it long, current world record in a sanctioned PGA tournament is 540 yards at 64 years of age.
Mike taught what he did, so he thought but evidence suggest that no one was able to do what Mike did.
My modeling of Mike Austin’s motion is seen with Hans here the first in history of golf I successfully transferred the motion from one golfer to another.
In a modern golf swing your limited with your movement and that means your swing integrity of distance/accuracy gets a toll at around 270 yards and after that you be all over the place. Todays equipment allows people tour pros mainly to add more distance vs old tech. The amateur however did not benefit.
An amateur hit around 200-220 yards.
Tour pros top 100 around 290 yards.
That difference are due to a tour pro is able to swing within their swing mechanic and technique but are also causing back problems and dispersion issues.
Using a throw mechanic your using a natural body movement allowing for mass to pivot around an axis for speed.
Modern swing don’t allow that as you need to muscle it and adding a extra variable for dispersion.
Mike Austin mechanics allows
- More distance with the same or better dispersion.
- Better accuracy.
- Timing is automatic and the same each time.
- Consistency in a way you never knew was possible.
- No back pains.
- Leverage based pivot.
- The tour pro can expect around a 350+ yard driving with less strain and better accuracy than previous swing.
The swing don’t make scores, its a tool to get the ball there but we have many skills in golf, putting, chipping, pitching and approach shots, course management and mental ability.
Mike Austin flew his ball over green in his 540 yard drive, didn’t make eagle or birdie. Hitting it long helps you keep more consistency but it wont do anything for your scoring. Jordan spieth for example if he shifted to this he be winning a lot more tournaments as he lost his Master title due to fighting his mechanics for 4 whole days.
With the RBIm swing system he wouldn’t had to.
It never goes wonky, you never loose the swing it always works.
Your modern swing always change tempo, timing shifts and you struggle with basic shots all the time.
