From amateur to tour pro, possible?

Yes, but its difficult.

You want to be able to hit a 200+ iron to middle of the green on demand.

That is kind of the level these guys operate at. Then you have many skills to master and then obviously the mental approach to hold the zone hit good shots on demand every time.

Thedanplan failed mainly due to he was hitting it short and crooked and hurt his back. His short game was good but the precision you want to have is beyond what amateurs knows. Playing with good national level pros or as I done going caddie shows how difficult it is even for those guys.

There has been those that started late age 21 or so and went and win on the PGA tour, some say they are talented but I disagree. They just knew what to do and didn’t get in their own way, they didn’t have a perfect swing or such, they learned to play trough feedback.

Feedback to adjust means difference and that means awkward and also frustration at times as your not able to do what you want to do.

Follow the feedback, use a good role model, master key skills, learn to enter a good playing state (zone) and play at your best is at the best level more about the mind than their mechanics even though, mechanics does matter.

You will also need a firewall against peoples negative attitudes due to people will give them their own failed mind set and you don’t want that you want positive honest feedback not a lot of shit. People cant handle their own failures and have to take them out on someone else to feel good about themselves.

You need a good plan, money and practice time and a vast enormous feedback circuit to improve from. I have myself change and continue to change trough feedback over the last 7 weeks and I started to hit shots I never been able to do before.

Longer, straighter and more consistently.

I still have a bit to go but with each session its closer each time to get there.

Applying template took around 12 sessions to bring into the outcome

To hit like a pro.

To feel the power in ones hand as a God is a diving right.

Naturally as I been an amateur for around 25 years I also built habits that is counterproductive vs what I wanted to do so yes the struggle for golf swings and learning to do is real for us all. Its not a straight road either as I worked in the evenings with video and checks to confirm or change what I did do.

Basically, first session, no power.
Analyze showed me why and I implemented that in the second session, success.

Next to fix the pivot that took a few more sessions “8” and also was a lot of work to identify what to do even if the movement template is known then one need to identify the difference and then apply. That took some doing.

Yesterday I reached that outcome to hit like a pro. It was found and reference could be built.

Today I hit a few at the range even if I was tired, to improve upon previous and a more throw action started to happen. The feeling and experience is obviously vastly different than what I did for 25 years. I increased distance even when the wind was blowing into the trajectory I took notice as I smacked the ball good.

However I can do now.
I don’t need to practice anymore, its a done deal.
I can do.

Next is phase two to further build upon this to play with the pattern to isolate and nuance to distill down the essential bits in the throw and as that is happening the pivot will improve along the way.

I enjoying this as its rare for me to have the time to spend to indulge this way and improving ones golf swing as it also offers insights to improve instruction and why it can be difficult for an amateur to go pro.

To improve from a amateur like swing to a pro one can have a huge difference of distance obviously. You can go from a 220 yards to 300 yards. First obviously that’s a whole different game. Many that learns to do and can do may not even realize they can do it due to it was to easy. Being stuck with previous education is often a hindrance to understanding that learning to do fast is rather easy and simple. However due to the way people think they need to understand before they can do gets in the way well then they become stuck not realizing they can do.

For me yesterday and today was a, can do moment.

I now can do. That means for me I am done I don’t need more practice as every time I go swing its the same. Is it perfect and optimized? Not yet but first task is to realize, I arrived at the destination and then formalize from there what’s next to do.

Learning for some means they miss the train that they actually can do and still think they need to learn a secret or struggle to learn as that’s their history in education. When you understand and realize using measurement and evidence and go, ok can do this, now what?

To get to that point one use quality of feedback to create difference and a good template.

I watched my down swing and took notice of that shallowing out from the top now a classical pro movement and thought well that went the over the top I done for 25 years and this felt so easy to do. It was so easy in fact it felt like cheating.

Great feeling indeed a Moe knows one

summer arrived

Last Friday it snowed and then one week later its 14c and warm.

Great turnover.

However golf is delayed due to grass haven’t really grown lately so I expect golf courses to open in June. Provisional greens earlier.

Until then I done some backyard practice and are happy with the progress I made.

wedge imapct

I wished I could practice hours upon hours but sadly I cant. I just take the time to spend outdoors in the sun a bit, doing my walks and continue to rehab my calf’s as heat will help with that along the way.

Did a chipping video about mechanics.

Basics are length of back swing and adding speed. A normalized movement will help with consistency. If you add grip pressure then your judgement of distance is off.

Talent code and cracking the code

While talent can be said to be skills, the building blocks to create the talent themselves been a mystery a long time and the book by David Coyle showed along some like professor Anders Eriksson with his 10000 hours of deliberate practice that talent is created not a born ability.

No one been able to copy a golf swing from Ben Hogan or anyone else in the history of the game, then I came along and did that with Mike Austin’s motion and transfer that skill to Hans Andersson.

When you know what to do as I do then there is no secret or mystery.

I been an amateur in regard to golf, I play with friends for fun and laughter. Never been concern with pro golf or such. That changed as I met Hans. As he injured himself with his modern golf swing and didn’t want to change I then had to build him a new swing.

So I did.

Talent are skills, trainable such.

Chess is a memory thing, to be better at chess you train memory for positions and can raise your chess rating with a few thousand points that way. You don’t need to think ahead or be creative you need a good memory and knowing chess positions. If you do that you be beating your chess friends easily.

If you believe it is something else when you practice chess then that wont improve your skills or results.

I spent 8 sessions practice the new golf template I developed. In each session I run the cracked code of how to build talent and then add improvement in each session. Golfers normally understand to build a new swing takes 2 or 5 years like Tiger with Sean Foley and then still failing so golfers knows how difficult it is.

To then apply the cracked talent code to the practice as I do allows me to do things faster than anyone else can do in the world.

When you end up with the “can do” criteria then your done.
How fast will that happen then?
It depends.

Most I seen with Hans is 3 weeks when he implemented a movement and that was mainly due to lacking the flexibility and he needed time to adjust for it. Normally its really fast.

  1. You need a good template.
  2. You implement the RBIm talent program for practice
  3. You end up with “Can do”.

Yes it means you be able to swing like Mike Austin did if you apply that template.

You cant replace 50 or so years playing golf due to golf include other skills than hitting a golf ball but at least you have a good solid foundation to start from.

Most assume this

However, if you use the modern swing like thedanplan did then you will fail. Back pain, short hitting and failure no matter how much deliberate practice you do and he had professor Anders Eriksson’s support.

You need a template that’s good not one that suck.

Then your practice will enhance and improve what your doing so you can reach the same skill set Mike Austin had or as someone else had. However what people believe is true like a held off release, a modern swing and then constant back problems and short hitting then you keep on believing that even if someone like Boklov came along with the V-style as people laughed then he won the title and no one laughed anymore as they all changed to the new V-style,same way flosbury flop did in high jumping.

Practice isn’t enough, bad practice is even worse and reason for many to believe in the talent myth. While having a good coach an expert in the field like Monte schienblum isn’t enough as what he teaches isn’t good enough. You end up failing as its to difficult to do consistently.

Then we move into the performance arena in why some people are able to do better than others consistently those elite level performers’. How do you practice that?

Question: Where do one find the 2 shot difference in ones golf game?

Peak book strategy
By being specific about what to do?
Intense focus then wont help.
Direct Feedback wont help.
Discomfort or comfort wont help either.
Coaching from experts wont work either.

A new approach is then needed.

Question: Where do one find the 2 shot difference in ones golf game?

RBIm talent build program

Identify the skill set needed in the performance.
Analyze important variables, ex: proximity to hole, putting.
Ask, can one do those to required skill level?
if so, the solution isn’t skill in its technical nature.
Answer: The state of mind then influence ones performance.

What are then the performance skill needed to focus ones performance to bring out ones best consistent performance?

Check experts: super confidence Bob Rotella, check source Rory loose his game miss the cut, super confidence isn’t the answer.

Identify great performances and map mind focus to find a solution.

Golf is distance control, that means judgement of distance and execution of distance needs to match.
That’s easy.

To bring out ones precision control to be able to repeat ones performance each time however isn’t.

Analyzing performance and mind focus shows people are tracking a target and executing based upon external raw data. Assumption wrong in science, there is no external data.
New revision created based on observation of performances in the zone.

New model derived to be tested.
Test: Solution worked.
Implementation of model is next.

Understanding the difference
to create distinctions of difference is the main goal in any practice.

To develop such models one need to understand the essence of the skill in context and then be able to check difference and teach that difference to someone so they can experience that vs whatever they been doing previously.

A template then with a instruction set to match allows a faster route to “can do”.

Mike Austin throw mechanics

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

Understanding elite level performance

Someone might say, Bob Rotella then and I would know, no he don’t understand. The placebo effect is real in his case. Super confidence? Yea ask him to explain that one and listen to guesswork.

To assist to work as a coach you want to understand what your about to do. The athlete just want to go out there and perform they don’t want to know every detail or be spoon fed metaphors.

What happens is your assumption and estimate of what your about to do is getting in your way of your performance. When that interfere with the result your doing you end up in a boot loop. A never ending cycle trying to solve what’s going on.

Utilizing RBIm6 one can resolve that both before and when performing if needed.

Golfers like Jordan spieth for examples struggled with his mechanics for 4 days in the Masters then hit 2 balls in water loosing the title. Once he hit those water holes he played better, his mechanics suddenly improved. If you have better mechanics helps to elevate mental issues when performing but isn’t a solution.

A change of focus did happen for Jordan but it wasn’t enough to regain his game and score.

if your able to understand what to do to focus on allowing your performance reach zone performance every time you go play then that will also help with scoring. If Jordan Spieth had known RBIm6 then what did happen day one with his mechanics would have made him change his focus and played better.

What happens is your assumption and estimate of what your about to do is getting in your way of your performance. When that interfere with the result your doing you end up in a boot loop. A never ending cycle trying to solve what’s going on.

Once you train yourself to perform your able to have that sharp laser like focus the very best people have in any sport they seem to be able to transcend their performance delivering a high level performance every time they go play like Ronaldo in Real Madrid in football scoring goals and deliver all the time.

Understanding what goes in is a needed thing due to otherwise your stuck adapting to bob Rotellas instructions to make them work and they don’t really work due to placebo effect is real there. When they work its due to the individual believe in them which again is placebo but then when stuff happens as your loose your game like Rory Mcilroy does as he is a client to Bob Rotella the answer then while performing and then loosing the cut?

No where to be seen.

Beliefs wont work long term nor does placebo as at some point the system cant hold together the adaption and then your fucked.
