What’s a good impact position?

This is Hans, at impact he has the angle of the left leg and the spine.7i

Once you have this you compress the ball due to the angle you arrive at impact is due to pressure point.

Mike Austin, even more spine angle due to hitting a driver, I also posted spoon for Hans, his spine angle has increased.

Lets look at Tiger Woods a once awesome player winning 4 majors in a row and now?

Late to impact, no spine angle to talk about, left shoulder and left leg arises sharply before impact, needs timing not even he can do consistently.  Currently a bad swing below average tour standard.

Yes TW find impact, but I would ask is that a good impact position you can do consistently?

No way, and its beyond me why he does that shit.

Me today. While not where I want to be, its getting better.
3 months to go for range work.

 

 

 

 

 

Now while positions are fun and good, the question is why it looks the way it does for Mike and for Hans? Similar if not identical pressure points they respond to and reference they use, its why its fluid and effortless. For myself, well its work in progress now and its getting better.

How you get to impact is important as this image show us, Hans 2011 vs today, the old one he has less spine angle, left pelvis moved and much more constraint and compensation than he has today. So while an image can show things it also lacks the motion and the way you got there.

I know where to go but I need balls for feedback now as any change you need great feedback.

However once the swing is done, you go play. I expect myself to do so during spring, work to finish this then go play.

What’s a good back swing position?

It depends.

if you do a modern style swing its like this,
fwpro

You see pelvis has turned into a wheel barrow.
The V shape of the pelvis and body don’t allow for power.
The head don’t move in the back swing, you cover the ball, all modern swing geometry concepts.

I don’t agree upon this being a good back swing position.

 

 


or you can do this,

hansMove off the ball, basically no V shape between pelvis and the body, no wheelbarrow. You can swing 20mph faster with less effort than a modern swing is able to do without straining and getting off the limitations they have.

A superb position IMO.

Now a guy like Monte said the guy I show that is a great swing. I disagree on that yes it’s a great swing if you like to hit it short and inconsistent as no human guy I know wants to hit it short, none.

I rather look like Hans in my back swing than that other modern swing. Its my preference as I never found restrictions in motion is good for timing.

A tour pro is trying to control their swing and I train Hans to go wild. I train him to be more animal to be raw to swing within his preferences to make him do what he wants to do not what the swing wants you to do.

rob

Its much like riding a bike, you can sit down all the time or stand up and ride the country wildly. My own swing and its back ground is being re-worked daily now and changes are made based upon the template.

When done I look like Hans swings also.

I would do a change based upon personal preferences, mine are a fast swing, my muscle receptors fire fast and to learn the proper pelvis action I reverted to dance feel and action. I can do that as it allows me to become aware of what I want to do when I swing.

Yes, Hans is the poster guy, the role model for this swing but I am now also posting more about my own progress and also soon Larry. Once done we will look like Hans or Austin just in our own way.

Contextual time zones

Let say you have a goal or an outcome you like to achieve.

That you want to stop smoking, or pick up your kids in time or just make sure the milk don’t run out in the fridge, small tasks but important ones or having enough ice cream.

Now, mainly people go I want to go there to the goal.

I ask, so what happens after that when you reached that goal?

People then say, what you mean? I say when the goal/outcome or such is already achieved what then?

Its about organization here, if you set a goal or outcome as to achieve it, you engage into the process to get there but that requires a lot more work than to ask, when the work I done is done then what’s next for me?  What most don’t know is the achievement of the goal actually produce a new context a reality if you like with traits you developed during that engagement into the process to get the goal and outcome.

The brain is good at patterns, so if you go to the next time zone what has happen you reach such goals and then ask what you did develop as a trait in relation to that process or previous time zone if you like then….

A star of its own

Its easy to get hanged up with old things, like memories. Its easy to think oh those days was better without penicillin, with dysentery, with gonorrhea, with syphilis, without protection without doctors washing hands and killing babies after done an autopsy yes those days was much better.

Ouch I killed romance now right?

That what wishful thinking does, we isolate portions of what it could been but the rest?

floppy discs, CD wasn’t even out and I talk about 1980! Computers was a dream cellphones? come on. That wasn’t long ago, today every kid is face booking, sms and such without even considering what life would be without it.

Our recall of what was fun, enjoyable and such is like that we isolate portions of what was and nicely forget all the other shit that made life hell. Take kids today out in the forest remove the cellphones and they go crying in the dark.

Our brain is prone to go habit and automatic, if you remember things those then becomes isolated events in portion of our daily experience and the tendency to use them as what was true once then becomes true today we filtering our experience trough a past event so that means we don’t pay attention to events happening today. It leads to judgment, assumptions and just stay clear of icebergs titanic.

It also happens without we really know its happening as all seems fine, no panic bring towel.

Future memory has a disadvantage, it doesn’t seem real, in comparison to what is really real what has happen once earlier on. Imagine that you actually think what you been trough is more real than what you haven’t experienced yet.
Seems kinda funny to me, people tell me how it was better and forget what happens right now as I go how about your kid? They go, what about him? How is he today? they go whad ya mean?
I say, well he is different today than he was yesterday but if you don’t pay attention to present things, you miss it.

So what did happen yesterday is more real than what is happening right now and tomorrow?

How did that happen?

Its that guy who press delete when the computer writes on the screen delete hard drive yes or no? And then asks, what happen I cant access my files?

If you don’t understand that your colored eyeshades wear your shiny light into your eyes is passing trough the bus stop and you sit there thinking well nothing new happens and then you will have a generalization going on a perceptual filter that blocks anything that is fun out of your portion of experience. Unlike eyeglasses we cant remove this filtering or understanding it by putting on or off our glasses.

We could ask, why even care?

I use this to improve my enjoyment of the day, when I meet people I am making sure I take a snapshot of them what they are today not where they used to be and I even sometimes make sure they are their future selves.

If people think improvement happens without struggle, without challenge and without work they are deluding themselves. I found that I spent 4 years study the golf swing, now? I am done but during these 4 years I spent hitting balls and every swing I made I created a variation with, either as I played or when I was at the range or did swing indoors at home.
I didn’t which is common trying to make a perfect golf swing, and I didn’t improve my swing during this time. I was working for my future result. If you understand that, there is a whole process in between when you don’t and when you do. It’s a learning curve and I know whenever I do things its what I do I spend a ridiculous time uncovering every rock and flower out there.

So whenever your going to learn new things, you can check out examples of success, excellence you like I choose Mike Austin as he did it it long but also due to the fluidity he display while swinging. I never got the language of kinesiology, still don’t even if I do use some terms its not needed to learn to have a golf swing. Naturally once I have things down I go back and start applying them.

As I done with my own golf swing, its how I do work with modeling, it might seem funny to you, shouldn’t I be better during the project but modeling doesn’t work that way, its about the result then sorting to find out what does actually produce the result not what you think it does.

Once such has been found its put to the test.
Its what I do now, for myself for Larry and others.

RBIm is such system of self discovery and it will mean a lot of work doing it. If you want easy and simple, there is a ton of systems out there as options. I do Intu-flow daily since 5 or so years now, I changed my diet since 6 years back and keep on it. I recently decided to do a little faster weight loss so I applied that with a more strict eating habits and home schooling gym work, Yesterday 30 min walk, today its airsquats. I push this to my limit, which is silly low but I cant sit really comfortable as change and growth happens with work.

Its like a star, it doesn’t ignite until enough mass has been collected into enough density and when it does that then it ignites. Jupiter was almost a star, but almost isn’t good enough in the Universe. If it had been then we wouldn’t be here. Mistakes happen out there, right now the Andromeda galaxy is crashing into us, its not like we can, ok rear engines go left as we will crash into that galaxy one day. I wish I could have seen it.

I am preparing myself for the golf season, 3 months to range opens here, yes silly. I change my swing action lately as I applied the model for myself. Yesterday I watch my swing and went, ok turning in the downs wing, not good, changed one thing, didn’t turn anymore and went, aha this is what its like doing this then. Doing it this way allows me to understand much better if an amateur struggles and what they struggle with.

I don’t fix a bad habit, I don’t make specific changes, as once you discover what its like you can just do it, like riding a bike. No matter how bad a swing you might have, it will just work once your done with this one.

Larry will be the interesting case here, as we can compare a swing he did do for many years and at age 66/67 learning a totally new motion and hitting it 50 yards longer or whatever the case might be will raise a few eyebrows in the golf community. Once he is done which isn’t much left to do mainly some range work and tweaking, he be as consistent as Hans is and even if he isn’t as long, I suspect him to swing it 300+ yards now and then. It actually is around 10mph more than he does today which isn’t much as he haven’t been able to apply for all out yet.

Its how I have evidence to what I do and done, when the model works, it just works but it isn’t what you are used to follow and read about in a book or look at a video, here you will discover what your references has to be to create your own swing.

RBIm is like that also. Problem is I cant ask myself what I am doing as I be coloring this.

Not easy to be a star on my own.

Golf swing updates (updated)

Had a in-depth chat with Larry, he now have the foundation there. So I hope the coming days he is able to hit the range, work on it and send a video or two to check for. He hits it longer yes, by far it still arise when it use to go down. I estimate a few weeks until its just is solid golden swing from him.

He really had a good couple of days, the text I sent him and the work he done and my chat today made its just better so he should be able to really have a good swing motion for next video update.

Hans hit a ball today also, feels good he says.

5 iron

 

My own progress?

its just range I wait for.

I still turn and rotate a bit into the down swing, it will get fixed once I hit balls (main flaw atm).  Right knee and leg is improving and will also improve with balls. Its now much better since last time indoors with balls.

Comparing myself when I swing indoors demo this for Larry vs actually swing with a ball isn’t fair but at least give an impression of if I am on track or not.
jämföra

I lack a slight pelvis drop, also due to lack of ball as I don’t want to hit the floor and I don’t if I swing this way and feedback from range is what I need right now. Pelvis is angled, good, I increased spine angle, good. Right knee folding, good. Rotational move is holding this back atm. However its better and as far I can conclude the next few days Larry going to set new records. His old swing limitation is gone and handled without needing to be fixed.

Update: So looking at my own action, the why was obvious so altered the start of the swing was needed. Fixed it by altering the left foot a bit and angling a bit differently.
All good now. still hitting balls at the range is needed.

How good is Hans?

I wanted to build a world class player.
525770_3137421206887_364944324_n

Once I went into study the golf swing mechanics I also applied the same for me as I would benefit and also help me understand this better and once that was going on consistency search also happen as any tour pro needs that but none has it.

I think in terms of skills here, like if Hans has a 2-4% dispersion pattern and he should have that this spring, and normally a player wins when they are at those numbers, and when they don’t they have a 8% as a normal one and even worse when they hit it way more, like Mickelson hitting a 7i 15 yards off line and into a forest.

So its about dispersion control, then distance and then efficiency.

Talking to Hans its evident this is all getting there and I fully assume and expect him to be around 2-4% dispersion as his normal pattern. That is what happens when your able to focus on what works.

I am about to talk to Larry soon on Skype, he now have all there is there to know about his golf swing except one thing, swinging it like pros with their impact. Its also hard to learn by yourself if you’re an amateur like myself been,what’s a pro impact, what does it feel like and how do I do it?

One of the things I did notice indoors with Simon hitting balls I could consistently make ball contact first. I knew how to get my club head there, and the ball took off. Now I had some body motions that was good, but from where I come from I notice the difference and I also took notice off this is how those pro guys does it. Recently at indoors home I cant do much more now, I need range work to improve ball impact and how much I need to alter my down swing to make it the way I want it. I expect to swing it like a pro during spring.

If I can play like a pro is another matter, the same way its about how good Hans is, we find out. If he can have those skills into those I want, and improve them, he either win or be in contention in every competition he enters. World class then.

I am 50 year old, and I own kids in fps games like BF4. It’s a bad game design and DICE really dropped the ball since BF2 days. I view golf swings and instructors much the same, they want you to have a hand or arm or elbow somewhere and I think however I see them swing and they say its better they are not able to do it consistently. I then study Moe Norman as he was consistent, and yes Mike Austin guys would say they hit  a 6i the same distance Moe hit driver and Moe still would beat them with 15 shots. So I looked into Moe, and formulated an idea there, then added Nicklaus, and then set things in motion this spring. Its most likely the amateurs I am teaching as of today is the only ones I take on. My skill set is geared towards the PGA/LPGA tour as my skill set is without question so much more efficient than those coaches have at their disposal. So I wait for Hans to practice play, then once that works, then I find out how he does in competitions.

Skill set decide to a large extent how good you be, as you can improve a skill set and if your normal one is what the guys winning have, well then you will do good whoever skill and background you have.

Larry for example is 67 years old and haven’t yet understood how a tour pro makes contact which is now his limitation or inhibition if you like and to discover that himself is possible but hard, so I taught and pointed out to him what he needed to build to get there, but I haven’t told him why I said the things I said, he just a good student, follow my instructions, those that don’t like my teaching style, well they wont last past my writing.
I taught his body and mind this you need to learn then this, feel and sensations then this and then that and he done it all. Tonight I let the dog loose, the tiger, the elephant into the room of glass.  Time to go animalistic.

How should you discover what its like to feel a tour pro impact if you never done it? How can you change the pattern unless you discover the proper correct one? Its really hard to do so yourself without support, Skype allows me to see you swing, it helps me to add variations into your patterns and teach you about what your body is doing educating your action until you can arrive at what works.

Larry is about there now. He is a dedicated student, just ask his wife.

To discover what its like allows you feedback, if your play as Hans is discovering that he just hits it straight then I can help him improve that now with RBIm pattern’s as that is doable but focus on technique isn’t.  If you measure your skill level if I do this then I am playing like this then its all you need to do to create the foundation to play at your potential.

Once Hans does that, Jacob Bowden is going to call me and Stacy Lewis.

If they don’t well, I be here waiting sipping coffee.

Hans Update

hansspain

Ok, storm this weekend so no play. He still was out there playing a bit but couldn’t say much. I asked him about his game and he says, I never been able to swing this good. He feels consistency is up, he is a bit longer atm a club or so. I hope he can play 18 next weekend. He also struggled a bit with distance control due to what club to use is now new again.

He felt good.

50 year old playing BF4

I think the game sucks. Its not the game I paid for which was Battlefield this is what happens when people don’t define what their own brand is made from. Its more of a cloned call of duty.

still was a good solid rounds on a close quarter map.
65 kills and none was close again. Changed server and 47. Not to shabby for a 50 year old.

Moe Norman golf swing

I like this Moe video.

Let say you want to copy Moe’s ball striking.

Problem is here you cant do it from the stance he used at old age. You cant get the same action Moe did doing that.

Now Moe set the club up behind the ball like a foot or such not set up straight like your told to do. Now doing that you do as Moe would say save a foot of moving the body and he also says, I couldn’t hit the ball the way if I set the club at the ball. Moe, then just did what he felt he needed to do, angled his club and body away a bit, then hit it.

For anyone doing this, it will simplify your motion in the back swing, its now just a lift and you still need to know the weight shift as copy a good player means they often do things your or me as a player isn’t doing so copy what they tell you they did and reason for it might not work.

Naturally as range opens up I go out there set it up like Moe and find out if it helps me simplify what I am doing. Just because a few million people even a billion talks mandarin or such don’t mean they are the main language in the world but one day might be according to Joss Whedon. Just because people tell you to set up the club behind the ball don’t mean it’s the best way to learn to swing the club. The question I would ask Moe if he was around, how come he cant hit it with the club head behind the ball vs the one he did?

Once he angle out his set up, he also angle his upper and middle body along the way. He essentially make the same move Ben Hogan used to do with the back leg moving off it as fast he could, now Hogan did that due to his bad right leg and Moe learned to do that with his swing as he swung at his younger age you see dynamic athletic action and how he learned to respond to the pressure points, that when he grow old does also but now it doesn’t look athletic anymore.

This is Hans 2011.

2014

 

So while he was able to swing at around 120mph with his old swing his back couldn’t handle it. Now? He be able to swing at 130mph with less effort than his old 120mph swing. It now looks simpler than what he used to do. It is, its more efficient and better.

Getting there for him took less than 3 weeks from the last down swing sequence and since I told him about pressure points 8 weeks.

Larry atm have the sequence down now, next stop for him as he can respond is to change the down swing for him but for Larry it means a different thing than for Hans or for Moe. Larry has the swing motion now I wanted him to have. I didn’t teach him that swing motion, he taught himself. Now he has left overs from his old swing, and I bet when I tell him what I am telling him next time we Skype he will go, oh but that’s easy?

Its easy or simple now when he done the work to the point when we can change it to work for him. Its like Hans, took me a long time to get his ass out of his head to actually listens that whatever he been taught is bad for him and he needed to change this, today? He tells me should done this 20 years ago.

Looking at Moe, we see 50 years of swing simplified. Copy or replicate what he tells you even his set up is not good its a disaster waiting. Look at Mike Austin he was a educated man, smart but still the students are not able to replicate the motion he did as they are missing out on something. Its like that for anyone including me, its why I don’t teach people the way NLP does it as I find more copies of Grinder, Bandler, Dilts, Riggio etc..are not good for NLP in the long run nor more copies of me.

I love when my students surprise me like Margareta did as she said to me what I taught her and I smiled to her and said, no baby you did that on your own.

Larry is about to surprise himself.

I think Moe will agree on that.

The comparison modes

Let say you want to be better, if its a skill its easy as your then focus on improving that skill. You can measure it and find out ho well you do so you go oh better. Now how do you feel today, happy and then go how do I become happier?

Funny enough it’s the same thing you work at it.

Its not like things happens to us, we learn to respond to events around us, sets up the causality for us the reasoning that if we see a man pick up a coin and then the next few days see another man pick up a coin and when it does happens the third day we think, that is God working trough him. I like to say not he works at the bank. The brain remembers those events, once the pattern is found the brain goes like this,
short cut, man picks coins must be a connection now man is picked by God to do that.

Next up, happiness.

If you produce happy, we normally would say, if I eat ice-cream I am happy or that I have a party, or drink a lot of vodka or smoke some pot or such. If I see my kid I am happy and I go why should things has to happen outside you to then make those outside events produce the mood and such your have today?

Why not go, today I want to be happy all day?

Or sexy, passionate, smart, ferocious, zoned out, or any other pick your candy for the day.

Why cant we just do that wouldn’t that make our life easier if we just was happy and no matter what did happen around us, we wouldn’t mind that?

Normally you do that you let events around you in your life control how you feel in any given moment of time you cant choose to just be happy. It might be the event trigger us like a button called anchor where the event itself might be nothing but it reminds us about some other event long ago oh no that pattern again the brain does for us, it takes random events and then find similarities and then go, seems the same must be the same and then tell the brain produce these adrenalins and this cocktail its time to party.

Yes memory works like that, similarities will trigger your actions even which is funny the old event that was what it was cant be exactly the same today as it was then but that is our brain doing patterns and then we just assume the brain knows what is going on.

Zombies eat brains, that is a clue to they don’t eat our legs, but the brain and what does a zombie know? Nothing they are half dead.

So we make a plan today I be happy, then the kids throw up, become sick I have to be stressed out called the doctor, the job the boss and then my husband is sleeping with the secretary I know, life sucks. Oh yes happy was it right?

So easy to loose sight of what we are suppose to do as we get side tracked by events so we as I suggest train us to hold onto our experiences, as I done 5 years with intu-flow and now my body feels like this galaxy of space moving around but I aim to have the Universe.

Once we have information we take it in compare it to what we know is true, we tend decide to either ignore or delete or accept, instead we should ask us, is this what it is?
Or is the me the I just accepting it for a false God like any star gate traveler would?

Unless you identify that this is what you want and the conformity of life and us is that we want things to be the same. We want the fun time to never ends, we want the sex to be as great every time and just improve we don’t want to go stale and bored and become this endless zombies walking to the factory and car every day thinking shit not another day.

If you don’t work out if you don’t run, if you don’t adapt variation to your workload the brain adapts to it. if you take the same walk the brain increase efficiency to make it easier to do the same walk so you need to create a variation to improve.

To be happy?

Find as many ways you can be happy and then as you add one variation to another at some point you reach the point of no return, your always able to be happy.

How long how many variations?

It will vary and depend on the individual.

I found the image using goggle to this blog.
It’s a pure coincidence the blog is about happiness as I write this post today, pure innocent coincidence no karma no secret no mystical force.

Unless you think I am Jesus reincarnated, I take that any day.
