End of the road start of the new

Figuring out the golf swing is like asking 10 PGA coaches of the golf swing the same question. likely to receive 10 different answers or the same answer and in either way it wont help.

My job as a modeler is to figure out what works. Identifying and defining what works is a lot of work to check and recheck and test.

I figured out the golf swing and then some. Clarifying it so its understandable also, with what to do and how and why. Next is field tests. While it all works at home and explains it all, one also need the raw test to feel it and how it affects ones swing and results playing.

So it feels, done, complete now after a few months and finished.

Next is field tests with playing and scoring and checking for distances and accuracy patterns. Looking forward those.

Did Ben Hogan have a secret?

Don’t think so.

Question what did he do then?

Myswingevolution states he swings like Hogan did, and my reply would be, well Hogan went down at impact, your going up, not the same then.

You react to force in a golf swing the same way you train to ride a bike and after a while if all you need to do is react you have superb ball striking. Ben Hogan, Moe Norman for sure had that.

10 weeks later I arrived at a finished template instruction set.

Its a bit like having 100 puzzles and you only have one image to fit the bits which means 99 puzzle bits isn’t fitting. A lot of work then needed to make the bits fit the framework.

Tuesday the 4 of July 2017 I understood my old reference, once identified I knew this I don’t do anymore. Then as expected I had to start over so I did on Thursday the 6 July as I applied the advice I did for Hans a couple of weeks ago.

I started to have good swings.

Played and had my best round in years and my ball striking went to something extraordinary. The day after today that is I analyzed a bit what I did do and how it worked and its a simple reacting to the force movement. Knowing that also helps to keep on doing that reacting and build a habit out of it. Explaining the movement and what to do is next.

Making a video later on in what to do for the students I have.

Copy or mimic is easy but then you don’t often understand the forces people react to especially if they have a ball striking that people notice as extraordinary.

I guess its the same with people that are happy all the time as they don’t really understand other people becoming depressed, sad or down. For others they cant understand how someone is able to do that.

Modeling is a way to look behind the scenes of magic to understand how it works and then train oneself to do magic oneself.

The template applied

puzzleIts like a puzzle, you know what it looks like the framework but you still haven’t got all the bits into their places yet but you know one thing, all the bits that are there are all that needs to be there.

So one then apply each concept at each point, then apply the skill and if the skill used don’t match the template one then change skill. (skill=behavior)

That can be daunting for some, talked to Hans, and he applied what I learned today, which refined things for him so he could improve.

So it took 6 weeks but then the pivot worked the way it should now.

Practice is getting there

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.
