Golf swing learning

Learning loop golf swing

My work been focused on developing golf instructions a lot due to the many misconceptions that runs in golf.

The recent one will allow you to develop a pro level golf swing, in testing atm

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.

10 weeks later applying the template

Likely to rest a few days now, may play on Monday but the breakthrough seems like its real and holding. Its one of those moments when you went from identifying the old reference movement I done for 30 years then finding yourself swinging like its from the left like a beginner and then start to do the new and then discover oh okay that’s what it is like swinging and playing the way.

The RBIm 6 moment last Tuesday realizing the old reference, identifying that, then go, not doing that anymore, establish a whole new reference, then use the advice I did give Hans 2 weeks ago and making it work during the round, play absolutely smashing well the last nine holes with a on and off moments as its so new was an absolute blast.

I need video to ensure its all good but as far I can tell, I arrived.

Played Thursday golf, won

Old reference swing was gone today, so a new needed to be built.

First nine holes was a lot of on and off shots, then last nine then things started to begun to improve, did shoot –1 last 6 holes even with a three putt along the way.

Best round of the year with a whole new swing reference, nice start.

99% of golf instruction are like this

Apply concept on a movement to explain it.

That’s a what and lacks a why and a how.

Issue is that it leads you to think it includes a why and a how.

Leadbetter made Nick Faldo a short hitter and then he was gone from golf. Once you loose athletic action your gone. It has happen to many golfers that become good and then for some reason was thinking their swing needed improvement and then went and changed it.

so the above is like that, a lot of explanations of what but no how and why. Good player, went down the swing shit and then regained his mechanics but his explanations is just a conceptual mess.

C-motion with Lee is a push with the right arm and that isn’t true just what the concept Lee think is there when it answers the what not the why and how.

Modeling means uncover what happens to produce a result either it be a golf swing or leadership. Once that is done you need a system, a practice to transfer key skills to be able to do it. The skills are trained and may have nothing to do with what someone tells you they are doing.

So creating a practice to transfer skills like, start of back swing, transition, down swing is then needed and then one need to understand what is done and how its done so one can answer why to do it that way. After 150 or so years of golf instruction someone should have figured that out by now.

Sadly not the case.

Swinging like Mike Austin for example wont mean you can train someone to swing like you did and we seen that with Mike Dunaway and others Mike Austin trained. The concept he thought he did and the way he transferred skills didn’t work properly.

You cant fix that with any concept.
You need to know why and how.

Once you do your then able to train yourself to do the proper movement and sequence to understand how the body will move in a golf swing.

That you can crush the golf ball, swing great wont mean you can train people to do it in an easy fashion, The better the instruction the easier the transfer is and the better your able to perform.

As I applied this template developed meant that whatever I told Hans worked didn’t mean it would work for me or anyone else, that he can do it don’t mean the same instruction would work for me. So the last 8 weeks I plow trough the code and instruction and skills to define down the essence. First massive concepts sorting.

First session lacking power, that was easy to note what to do after analyze. Pivot was next and that took 8 weeks. With that I could also work the back swing, transition and down swing and know what to train to do. Next is practicing that to find out if skills do transfer and if something is missing or if its complete.

Improvement is done trough applying difference to create variation to be aware of what one does and what one needs to do.
