What makes golf hard to learn even impossible?

80% of golfers sit between 18 and 36 handicap. less than 10% reach single handicap and only a tiny less than 1% reach scratch.

That is what modern golf instruction creates for you.

Looking at swings just means its a cool watch but you cant do what they do doing that.

Perceptually my golf mechanics is now so much different than what it has been. How one perceive feel isn’t different from one to another. I said to Hans many times so do this happens and he says, yes it does.

Perception plays a big part in the complexity.
Then beliefs about what one is suppose to do based on erroneous flawed thinking.
Assumptions forms that now makes it impossible for the individual to perceive what to do even when told what to do.

Developing a better instruction set is part perceived action that has nothing to do with the swing itself but with the perception that has to be there, if you don’t have that then your not able to do it properly.

Normally my practice runs like this,

  1. Template
  2. Apply action
  3. Feedback received
  4. Impact on perceptions

First day practice – Feedback – lack of power.
Analyze action tweak instruction.
Test second session – Feedback – Test confirmed solution worked.
New instruction developed.

Next, improve pelvis movement to a compound pivot.
Three sessions to find and improve the instruction set.
Identify actions I do that don’t match the intended movement and then adjust to match.

Improvements are mapped from each session as most believe a practice session is about hitting balls which isn’t the case but to find and do the movement. Once your able to do that your ball striking also improves.

  1. Template
  2. Identify movement to do
  3. Identify movement one does.
  4. Practice new movement using instruction set.

You want to know what your doing so you can identify the difference with the movement you want to do. If not your not able to improve much if any. Your practice session then wont lead to improvement unless your able to identify the differences.

If your able to practice as so then one day you may have this swing motion the best efficient swing mechanics in the world.
