Its more like frustration, confusion, and being lost than to actually be able to do anything new.
Its discovery by action.
Applying variation to find out what your body is suppose to do when it moves trough space in a golf swing is a process that takes 8 weeks or so. Depending on what and where you start. If you’re a golf pro it goes faster vs an amateur.
Hans got a re-organizing, but he already knew what a pro impact was and now its better. So his process is faster but done the same way. I spent 7 weeks now doing daily swings with variation and now its starts to kick in big time. That’s abut 48 days in a row.
so someone coming to me for a swing change might need to go trough 8 weeks of daily things before they even might find the level of improvement I want them to have. Now its seldom as bad as change to a pattern can be made faster but educating yourself is that, applied variation with imperfect action meaning educating oneself about moving trough space.
To reach perfection you need margin for error
and doing it imperfectly makes that happen.
Add better strategy and template your struggling, might get confused, then you make a stride in your skill, your able to do it a bit better and you understand something, like Larry got this idea and just do it better where did that idea come from? Its compound experience, adding variation until the system responds to that. For me I pointed out for weeks things he could work on, all that work he done is now gearing up for completion, he soon when he finds the whole form will just be able to do it like riding a bike.
But that process is different than what people normally does it. I fail more than I actually are doing things right. If my swing has sucked for the last 4 years its due to no instruction made me better, not Steve Pratts, not DJ Watts and I bought his material, my local teacher made it the best but I also thought I struggled to much and hit it short. So when someone sells you material and then ban you from their website when they cant do it, go figure. I think most miss that fact about DJ Watts and banning me.
Now my teaching style is at best, confusing normally, I also teach trough Skype best, as I can give feedback in real time and then point out difference in feel and sensation and get the player to improve by cutting down on their learning curve a lot. Even Hans is impressed what I do works so well for many. He been there with years of trying to make it work and never been able to. His swing trainers in Kungsbacka GK ruined him. The Ballard curse. So he spent 20 years struggling with the Ballard connections and got whatever I research to work within days. He gone trough ton of variations already in his failed swing and even if it’s the modern swing shit, wont matter he done it for 20 years having so much experience of what does not work. Today? He still thinks it wont work sometimes. He struggled so much and failed so much so now he got a ton of failure behind him.
So I steered him to practice variation, he take notice it works to make him better, I said hit swing from your left also. Its about making him better with even more failure. Skills are doable to improve beyond what you would think possible.
Once the player starts to practice imperfect, you turn into skills, improve the foundations, add sensations this activates the brain in a similar way as the notnlp protocol. I don’t do RBIm here which is possible but the player will have more issues with that approach than to bang balls and work variations.
Example, hit 3 balls, each swing to each ball has to be hit with either a fade, a draw and straight. Then you hit 2 balls, both fade, 2 balls half tempo. then just keep doing that. sometimes I spend time putting once, and I am done. other times I go there to work my reading skill or pace skill or such and then I spend an hour even more depending what I work on but all putts will all have variation to another, not two are the same.
If you understand this approach it takes time but the reward doing it will be a discovery about how to move your body so it works, perfectly for the rest of your golfing career.
Owning the swing motion one of few around the world. The main reason I teach and do this myself. Its just outstanding awesome.
However for those who want instant rewards, well you will have issues with this approach. Now I can improve the swing you have but why? a few weeks you be off with timing need help again. Hans? I tell him, one thing and he is back on track now if I even need to do that at all.
Any other golfer? 3 things and they need constant help.
Tuning into vestibular action allows you to create something very unique for yourself. Its like intu-flow, 5 years into it and my body feels like a galaxy in size. No idea that would happen.
Gaining skill is going into the outside of comfort, the struggle, the frustration, I wanted to kill something when I done this sometimes, I couldn’t get my body to move right. I still stood there added variation, swing after swing. 4 years now. Once the template was defined, that the pelvis needs to move this particular way, pressure points and feel then its all about finding those and then your swing follows along those points. It makes the swing action easier not simple but we need to know how our body moves as feel must be trained.
I gone trough what Larry struggles with, I know how its like and I still can then make it easier for him as I can point him add feedback so he will have a way to discover this faster. He now started to remove the old move, and learned how the new pro like swing is like.
Once he hits this better than the old one and cant hit it badly anymore, he be smiling a lot.
Getting there is what practicing imperfect does for you.
