Performance Training Course Package
Are you a range player? Putting green master? Or maybe you are going to try the last tip or swing thought you picked up on the Golf Channel during your next round. There is a reason why you can’t take it to the course? Why you are not consistent? You don’t practice or you don’t practice effectively. I will share with you and guide you through the process of how to learn and practice golf efficiently.
One big difference between high handicappers and better players is that better players understand that the required and steps are needed to develop their motor skills. If you want your swing to be intuitive, instinctive, fluid, you need the time to practice owning the changes and adapt them into your unique swing. Time to learn to trust and have the confidence in the dominant skill you and your coach explored.
The dominant golf culture is responsible in part because MSM and social media outlets propose quick swing fixes and drills but never pay attention to optimal skill acquisition theory. They don’t want to discourage you with the process. They make it look easy. Learning new skills is a process and takes dedication, perseverance, a vision, and attention.
You must adopt the philosophy of practice hard and play easy. If you want to play the game, you must follow the steps that have been scientifically proven efficient and lead to greater transferability.
You need to practice your movement pattern and manage your mind to control what the ball does. Being self reliant, owning your swing and understanding your tendencies is a process. The process I use is much more efficient and is based on sound research that is known to maximize transferability.
Knowing what’s broken down along with what’s functional is a great first step. However, you can’t expect to transfer to the course what you practiced for 15minutes during a lesson. We are fooled at times, both student and coach into believing that a few good swings translate into learning, transference, and ability to play consistently. Short term performance is not an indicator of transference, of skill.
