Practice is a little like, do one thing, receive feedback, alter what you do to improve.
Simple concept really but to make it work requires some insight in how the brain works with learning. When I solved the way talent is created and built that also allowed me to improve faster than before.
In 6 sessions I been able to get the template down which I developed for Hans based on Mike Austin’s motion. Feels good.
While the template is known the next step is instructions.
While applying the template, first thing was to refine the feedback in the movement, that was feedback from day 1 and day 2 confirmed the new instruction worked. The next thing was to fix the throw mechanic and improve the pivot and that took 3 sessions and confirmed working session 6.
Conceptually we cant do positions in a golf swing. However everyone teach you that and then add drills. What you need is to know what to do, simplify the attention and then add effective quality feedback.
This is bad advice btw
He Nick Faldo leaves the whole body out of the movement, he already can move properly so he can show it that way but try it and you find your whole body mechanic is left out.
if your an amateur, you don’t know how a flawless effortless impact feels like. My sis kid was frustrated, he could not hit one good swing, I let him do that, when he was angered enough went and sat down with his phone, I said, hey lets try this and he wasn’t willing but he went with it as I told him what to do and then he swung and smoked it.
I said, that’s how it feels like.
He improved directly.
Without the feedback and some evidence your hitting it properly its basically impossible to do it and to find it on your own. Its a reason no one except me been able to model a golf swing and then transfer the motion to someone else in the history of golf.
Next up is myself and those I atm are working with.
There be 4 people then that are able to do what Mike Austin did do but couldn’t transfer and teach.
That’s how models and template works. You have a blueprint in how someone does things, then the code is transferred using instruction of the defined essential action in the result produced. The instruction set is getting updated along the way as teaching Hans was to easy as he already had things like impact. Applying this the recent week or so in 6 sessions have created a much improved instruction set.
- Template model of Mike Austin’s motion
- Instruction set to transfer skills aka motion of Mike Austin
- Practice period when the instructions set is practiced
Problem for anyone who can do things is to explain how your doing the things you do. Your just able to do them and the brain habituate everything so a lot of information is hidden as its synced with the coordination itself of doing what one does. Modeling is a way to uncover what one does, building a instruction set to transfer the essential skills and replicate the result or even improve upon.
So what people do watching a swing you wont be able to replicate what you see. If it was you be able to swing like Ben Hogan could or someone else but obviously that wont work, it wont work even if the individual themselves explain it either as seen with Mike Dunaway that couldn’t do it either in spite of being taught personally by Mike Austin.
When you explain the individual needs to adapt to your instruction as seen with Sean Foley and Tiger and then when Sean explains to people that a baseball pitch works one way when it cant then one have to ask how people get a trainer certificate. Obviously explaining things like Mike Austin does,
The explanation is just nonsense. You wont be able to follow it and swing as he did.
Its in essence, worthless.
Once the template was formed the question is if the instruction set is good enough to transfer the skills. I then do two things at the same time, one is to do the practice follow the instruction set developed, if something is off I am able to track that down and improve on it.
Day 1, lack of power was evident, my distance improvement was there but I didn’t feel any power.
Analyze was shown what was missing, added that instruction.
Day 2 practice session, worked, felt power added distance.
Day 3, 4 and 5 was to improve the pivot and throwing action and the new instruction set developed and then tested on day 6 confirmed the action was now improved.
Pivot and proper movement was now happening and distance was added again. Day 7 will be more of what was happening in day 6 and further worked on if needed.
Improvement or building talent don’t take long unless you lack feedback. The issue with drills is a lack of that and there is no real way to improve them either. Its a simple concept, do – feedback either you improve which is good or you did not, if the improvement is lacking one analyze and then add something so you do improve.
You can build skills in such a short time frame that people have told me repeatedly is impossible.
I still did it. I am still doing it.
Felt good about todays session.
