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.
Time for a change
Breaking down skill in golf for example,
- Tee shot driver/iron/wood
- Fairway shot Iron/hybrid/wood
- Approach shot Pitch/chip
- Putting Green reading and pace
- Course management
- Lie downhill/uphill/sideways
- Weather conditions
- Mobility and physical status
- Mental and emotional aptitude zone/flow
- Strategies margin of error innovation
- Gameplay strength
- Consistency mechanics and timing with tempo
- Ball striking Consistency with timing
- Practice, play tournament feedback
While that’s a few and more we can say in general terms it take around 10 years to master those. You start at age 8 and can go on tour around 18-20.
Now add a general golf swing theory of mechanics that make it more difficult. The number of tour players fighting their mechanics out there is massive and they don’t know anything else, Hans once told me, well doing this (what I taught him) make me hit it straighter and I told him, didn’t you do that before? He, no and he said everyone else hit it like that, all over the map, and for me I was like, well why didn’t you tell me then?
Its what I do, I say, I want to be able to do this (result) can you help me to do that?
I was surprised that he didn’t tell me back then about that but it make perfect sense if you do it and everyone else around you do it then obviously its normal and be able to do it a lot better don’t even come into their thinking its even possible and then you have me telling them why not?
What they do tell me is that they don’t know what to do to make it such, those that could do such like Moe Norman was called a freak.
I am like, wouldn’t it be cool to do it?
I told Hans, do this and you be able to statistically be better than anyone on the PGA tour. In distance, in accuracy in the key thing I consider, distance to pin. On average a tour pro over a season is 31+ feet’s from it. Hunter Mahan for example has a 40 feet average as far. That is a 9 feet worse than the leaders.
Reason proximity to pin is a key stat is due to if your able to bring that down to let say, 20 or 25 you be increasing your chances to make birdies more often a lot.
The birdie distance is a steep slope after around 15 yards and if you could bring down your distance to pin to 15 yards or less on average you be able to convert so many chances to birdies its beyond belief.
When winners win they are able to be closer to have an easier birdie or they are able to putt beyond normal like Corey Pavin does when he won or Fredrick Jacobson or Anna Nordqvist due to them isn’t close enough normally to win unless their putting is massively better for the tournament.
So when I looked at stats I knew one thing, Hans needed those or better, makes it easier to bridge the gap between not on tour and on tour.
Time is needed with deliberate practice due to you have a lot of skills to train, the golf swing needs to be simple and efficient. I built one for Hans as his lower back crashed with his modern theory golf swing shit.
That is applying strategy to build a better mechanic like Boklov did for ski jumping or Flosbury for high jump. Result will be a better consistent action with timing on cue every time with then more accuracy due to less error in ball striking.
So once the mechanical aspect is done and taken care off your just able to do it.
Then other skills can be worked on one in particular is the mental performance for consistency which is the zone.
So I was a bit naïve at first as I did assume those wanting to be on tour knew what to do to do the work to make it there. I found out, no one does.
Thedanplan using Professor Anders K Erickssons help with Peak deliberate practice will fail for Dan due to him are fighting his golf wing, short and wild and bad lower back pain, he wont succeed due to he lacks a better strategy (innovation) to do so.
The problem for you as a tour player is this, the modern golf swing sucks its Absolut crap. You will fight your timing, you cant have consistency and you will loose your game now and then due to your timing is off.
You can listen to me or someone like Monte that is absolutely clueless along with Butch Harmon, Hank Haney, Leadbetter, Foley and Como and others.
I disproven already so many of their contradicting statements that wont do what they want you to do, they fail to understand why, so does their fans and while I have all the information about what to do they don’t and that’s is why I can do things they don’t even know exist.
The time needed to do a deliberate practice isn’t as easy that the book peak will let you think it is due to the professor don’t know what that is.
I taught Hans, a swing change, one single session on Skype, no more and 4 weeks later its better than ever with 2-3 clubs longer hitting a 2i the same distance he hit a driver last year which he was absolutely fucking stun to even comprehend at first as he flat out refused to believe it.
I said, you did it, so why not you know accept that your able to do it then dude?
He runs into the same trap human does when you exceed your current beliefs about what your capable to do.
I am teaching him things people don’t even understand or even exist.
Matrix style stuff from the strongest places of the force.
I mean, Ren from the first order tells this girl that is currently kicking his ass in the light saber duel that he can teach her about the force to guide her to her power and she Rey looks inside and find her guiding light and opens her eyes and then who then is the Master?
Doubt and fear is the mind killer.
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Deliberate practice is a key skill here that transcends your skills with years due to your able to define what you need to do and that when your able to do will be mind bending as Hans found out hitting a 2i so far he was absolutely what the hell is going on.
Sure, someone new wont be able to do so as quick as Hans been with me a long time but the fun part starts when your able to do a golf swing the proper way then other skills can be gained much faster as you wont struggle as thedanplan did and does.
Telling an amateur that hit it at 220 yards a good day they can and will be able to do 300+ once you are done seems absolutely impossible even for a harden veteran as Hans adding 40 more yardage to a 2i is like, not possible due to him knows golf with his friends and peers and what I do is just, impossible.
When I found out how deliberate practice did work then I built a model from it into a workable actual kick ass advance skills with years into a timeframe people call, impossible.
Skills take time and yea you need practice, feedback and then awareness of the stuff that’s going on. The feeling you have when you know you never ever again need to fix your swing?
Priceless Legendary Awesome
Special thanks to Hans and any other crazy believer of the Golf God
No way around it, you want a system that limits your by breaking the kinetic chain from the bat go?
Let me know your thoughts guys
I find that modern theory isn’t a good way to swing the club, it makes the body go several ways, create timing issues and run out of space fast.
The RBIm swing based on modeling Mike Austin is a way to understand the movement to do and identify along the way key positions your suppose to do that drills and such never allows you to find unless by sheer luck.
I done drills for years previously but I couldn’t change my swing much if any.
I am now applying my own RBIm swing template indoors currently as I am done with the research phase as the model itself is complete.
Teaching this is interesting as I say, start with the movement itself, your able to understand what to do if you know how to move, positions wont help but more get in the way unless you understand how to move. One movement is there, positions and such can be isolated and felt and we can understand why we do this movement and why positions and check points needs to be met during the movements.
When we swing obviously we cant feel positions.
Then we swing the movement and can check with feedback and such if we are meting our intended movement with positions. It makes learning this much easier than to think, positions.
Movement allows whole forms, positions activate the wrong idea for us as then we start thinking how a body part like the wrists is suppose to move which make us stuck. If we have movements that isn’t working once you know how to move then the movement itself allows for feedback to adjust what your doing that isn’t optimal.
To fix a flawed position or movement we done, for example I have had a inside flat back swing so I figured, ok I should be able to identify what to do to get this right, so I did. Then once that was done it felt, awkward and really strange first to do that. However once I done that for a few days and done the slow motion work I also started to arrive at some aha moments along the way new insights in what’s going on and where to move.
I got into this down swing position and felt like oh no wonder I can add speed now as its just go for it.
In early December 2016 I told Hans to change his movements as I identified the last piece of information. I understood the swing fully. His first response was, cant move things that way due to him never done that but it took him 2 weeks, a changed grip and then he said he was ripping it like never before. I expect him to have 320 yards or so in his driving.
An amateur hit around 210-220 yards or so and that’s due to flawed mechanics. You can expect to be able to add 60-70 yards with a better mechanic. That’s a 20-30mph increase of swing speed. Amateurs have a 80-90mph or so swing speed. Main reason the amateur hit so short isn’t technology, like balls or clubs but mechanics.
The RBIm swing template allows freedom of movement and to throw for maximum speed.
I asked Hans to send me 3 swings from the same angle. The above is 3 different swings with a 4i but look a lot like, the same swing copied 3 times.
Its one benefit of the system I developed, your timing and tempo will be there and as much a human can do, the same. If you tape a tour pro with a modern swing, they cant do that due to their reference is moving along and wont be good enough to reach a replication of the same timing and tempo for them.
PW 3 different swings.
And here is driver 3 different swings.
some guy asked if I had all the gadgets to teach a swing and I was like, why would I need such when you cant use them to swing and play?
Either you can swing and make the ball go where you want it or you cant.
If your consistent with tempo and your timing, gadgets wont be needed as you know the difference. Gadgets create a false sense of security, any pro have less than half a degree angle with their putter stroke due to putting is all about green reading and pace control not angle of your putter. The two variables for putting you cant use gadgets for, silly tour pro mentality to believe such.
I asked due to I wanted to see how much the same was going on or not vs what he done before a few years back, now it was a ton better.
The swing wont make you shoot 55 but at least if you don’t need to worry about timing or tempo anymore your free to play the game the best way you can.
Consistency comes from being able to replicate the same action as much as possible vs the result you want to achieve which is to make the ball to go where you want to. Consistency with a swing that is the same is a good step to ensure ok that works now use that to make the ball go where you want to as you won’t need to tweak or fix your swing anymore.
The above demoed by Hans no on one on any tour can do as well or better.
300+ yard driving and Accuracy with it
Tempo and timing automatic due to easy sequenced chain
For me obviously not a secret.
Equations are as wiki state:
When one defines you have a core principle showing up into the pattern so any swing is the same but the expression of that core principle is often different.
It means that Mike Austin swing is the same as Ben Hogan’s swing 1948/49 and 1953, it’s the same as the modern swing like Tiger woods. However to understand each difference between those swings you cant do today with any education within PGA.
I can then examine whatever drills people do and the outcome accordingly to the secret and find if its even close or not to teach the principle or not. Its immediate as I don’t need to calculate things anymore, I just know. Its then what some would say internalized as an equation expressed in behavior, a model simply.
Each project I done I learned more about how things work in regard to consciousness and understanding about the perceptions.
The tour pro can have the swing Hans have and I got this question what I do with Hans as I work with him, I don’t, as when asked hit the ball where you want then ok I am done. There is no fixing needed as Tiger does like Lydia Ko does like anyone on tour does.
It wont fail you Ever
What I do is to ask questions, then from the feedback devise a test and then implement action.
What I do to teach this golf secret wont be disclosed to the public.
sequence, patience to not to turn early.
left arm drops, back feels to target, heavy in the feet.
pull me left trough the ball.
Whatever Justin says are crap. You cant do what he does with his explanation.
The other video shows you start with the lower body as you would throw a ball or a spear but in golf you start from a stationary position and don’t move your body as in throwing a ball or spear.
Shawn will add metaphors to explain various forces with the movement.
I simply normally suggest,
practice pitches, make sure your wrists and fingers stay relaxed and don’t add grip pressure during the movement.
or as this,
If your not able to hit a pitch swing with clean contact 9 out of 10 times you need to do that until you can do that. Trying to get my sis kid to do that however has been hopeless as he don’t want to follow instructions as he wants to do the full swing. However if you cant make a clean contact with the pitch and add grip pressure during that movement your sequence needs work.
Principle one, practice what you can do.
Principle two if what you practice is to difficult go back to what works.
Principle 3 follow instruction and attend feedback.
Following a pose swing makes people believe that it will work to do drills but basically it wont as you need to FEEL the movement and the feedback that entails.
If you don’t feel the difference its difficult at best to improve almost to the impossible.
To be able to play well in any sport we want skills. While the skills don’t make or break things we want them to be as good as they can be and while many focus on the technique and mechanics to no end without real improvement.
Many modern golf swings says they cant hit the shot where they want. Many tour pros shot 67 one day or 77 the next day they have no idea how to smoothen their scores out over a weekend or season.
Mapping the mechanics is done for me as far I can tell. I can explain the upswing and I can explain the transition and the down swing and pivot now. Looking at putting and other skills the same way its evidently so most build bad habits.
If you mastered the mechanical side wont matter what swing system you use then is all about what we call the mental side to master the emotions and state while you play.
That however is complex.
One of the outcomes I had with coaching and modeling the golf swing was to build a template to how to make it to the tour identifying and defining things along the way to shorten the curve.
Currently the last 2 months I applied the template for the golf swing and I had to invent a feedback system to increase the speed of learning there, none existed. Larry couldn’t take the video and evidence and measurement as that wasn’t working to apply for him. Raw feedback did work over skype. So the obvious question become what to create to make such feedback possible and doable.
You want to master the technique first anyhow.
Once that is done you want to master sub skills within like putting or chipping, course management etc..
You want to have a plan to play from and you want to master the state playing from.
If you cant do it, (technique) then having the plan and state wont help you enough as if you suddenly hook it or something else without knowing what’s going on your turn to fixing technique which will draw attention away from mastering the game. The story of Tiger Woods, Luke Donald, Mike Weir and many many others on tour.
So I solved putting, its as easy as riding a bike now. You always read greens perfectly and you always make a good stroke. To do that you apply both a mechanical approach but then mastering the plan to execute that stroke is as much mental as its tied to skill. I find I make putts without even trying and many 3m putts are now and then gimme putts.
The way I used to do putting was immensely more complex. The study I made and applied for myself made me drop 10 shots from putting a round. A tour pro can make 2 to 5 shots at their current level. If you check any around top 30 or top 100 players dropping 2 shots a round make them top 10 in the world.
That’s a significant difference just by the putting alone. It’s a reason I keep this under wraps.
For an amateur it wont matter much due to most also have issues making the ball go where they want to.
I like to say, master the mechanics then we can go play.
Currently the only thing I haven’t mastered yet is the golf swing to be able to do it and while I can teach it and know what to do, who cares right? Its always about doing.
So I was hitting balls, adjusting and improving and at some point I thought, ok goes to slow. Then feedback improvement was set and applied and that did lead to the next step as my pivot was out of order. My brain and body just did the pattern I built since age 28. First a change to the upswing was made and working. No need to repeat patterns as once you understand the posture and upswing that will work automatically. Next the transition and down swing and looking at that and identifying what I did it was then a question of defining what to do.
So I took a look at Hans then Mike Austin and sure enough they did that the same way and they did it like that which I didn’t do. Naturally at this point one can ask, so how come you didn’t know that then? Its like everything else, one you tasted chocolate ice cream many knows what that’s like and then explaining that to someone else that never eaten ice cream wont understand. How did I not see it before? The same way our perception works, we cant see it.
We are seeing something else that we can overlap and translate.
I see when someone swings the level of grip pressure someone use, what muscles isn’t working in order and many things so I can adjust and give feedback real fast. Hans ask one thing I take a look and say do this.
However, I cant really do that with myself the same way so I worked to utilize feedback and then that allowed me to start thinking differently about learning the golf swing. Obviously at this point it become obvious what I needed to do.
Templates don’t happen by themselves they are developed trough work.
One way is to say you lacking information or you have the information but don’t understand it. You then return to step one which is, is the result happening that you want?
I taught Hans focus like this, do this and he took several months before he started to be able to do it. Something I can do directly out of the box.
Mastering the mental side of the game is as much a mastery of oneself.
How do we handle rejection, hate, stagnation, difficulty, mistakes, and various things we cant control like the weather, other people what side the grass is growing on if the greens are fast or slow and whatever else we can be upset or disturb or unbalanced about?
What people think as control is the idea of a concept the memory like “I am stupid” and you did act stupidly but do that mean your stupid now? No but your likely to either think you did act stupidly or think your stupid.
What difference does it do how you remember that?
If you did act stupidly, you have a choice to act differently.
If you are stupid your stuck.
It then affects your decisions soon you start to confirm your stupid also by checking that its true. Confirming the identity becomes then a solidified thing and soon your fucked.
Can you build and create talent?
Sure I created my own talent in what I do today the RBIm side of stuff. I built a putting system for golf that makes it as easy as riding a bike. You never need to think about practicing putting again as you can just do it.
Once that stupid thing been solidify your potential goes down the drain.
The tour pro struggles so they think its their technique due to them are hitting it sideways now and then but I tell them if they ask me, your mechanics isn’t good enough. Your coach isn’t good enough.
That’s seems to hold true sure I dont win any friends in the golf swing theory club but I am interested to build stuff that works not having the player complaining and whining about their golf swing isn’t working when its based on shit.
I can prove it to them also.
Hans been having nightmares as he is so afraid to ask me questions due to I will answer them in a way that now and then goes against his most held assumptions and truths about himself and the game of golf.
Proving things seems to work well, whatever you believe is faced with the sign of oh shit now. Its what evidence does and measurement and then pure logic.
Ok I cant believe like this due to its simply wrong.
I say, do this.
To do it simply means you need to focus on what to do, simply.
Isolating skills are needed to improve them as the talent book tells the tale if you cant isolate a skill, improve it your not doing it right. Isolating, use improve feedback leads to your able to do it.
However it also goes trough the box that’s called mistakes and failures as your not able to do it and have to work trough to be able to do it.
That btw the individual don’t know what its like. If you never done it, you don’t know what its like, doing it……………….
You miss it when your able to do it unless you measure the evidence.
How you feel now?
Client, hum I feel fine.
Me, so what did you come see me for?
Client, don’t know really…..
Me so you just paid me and showed up here for no reason really?
Client, no I am sure I had a good reason……
Such conversations been common the client suddenly don’t understand their whole reality is different due to them simply cant recall and remember what they were doing there. I forget stuff all the time.
When your focused on the task other things wont enter your mind then.
I taught Hans a few things and last week I went and played 18 and did what I taught him and thought, gee he must shoot 62 every round if he can do this. I did teach something that I built from Jack Nicklaus that I picked up from an interview he did back in the day. Worked splendidly.
It did allow me to play at my best and my putting and chipping been awesome the last two rounds. I had two chip shot that wasn’t spot on. So I understand ok no wonder he was able to play consistently over 40 years.
Naturally for me I am currently working trough the mechanical side of the golf swing and have made progress so I can play better but the real fun thing happens when you master what you work on as then you can play to your potential.
