competition today


shot 77, lost ball on 18 so could been lower but I was fine with that. 10gir, 4 birdies and 30 putts and great experience trough the round.

New carry bag so happy with it

about maps

The map isn’t the territory, we make maps (mental concepts) reflecting on the world we experience. Perceptually most forget they are seeing things and start rely on memory instead of experience the sensory moment to moment and then we are stuck with what we perceive things to be instead of perceiving things as they are and as the rabbit hole is never ending we wont perceive what we are missing either until its to late. One reason people have a hard time with learning the golf swing is old models interfering with the new.

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.
