Sam Snead taught me long ago that the body needs one and ONLY ONE very important message from the mind, while over the ball – GO THERE!
But, I also learned from Sam that to play the game at that level of simplicity, we have to work our way through an entire 4-Step process, The Process of Improving, for each shot we work on. There are no shortcuts!
So, to improve, we must first understand and feel the flow of our motion as we are currently delivering it from ball to target. Motion is KING! Motion produces ball flights! Once we have motion, we can refine it as necessary – to change or improve our ball flights – for any type of shot from putting to driving.
Every lesson in the Golfstruck Curriculum begins with your current motion and then is designed to take you through all (4) steps in The Process of Improving as defined below.
The Process of Improving:
Step 1: UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU NEED TO DO DIFFERENTLY
We help you to understand your current motion and what you need to do differently & why – to consistently and predictably produce your intended ball flight, i.e. to get your ball from here to there.
Step 2: CONVERT YOUR NEW UNDERSTANDING TO FEEL
We show you how to convert your new understanding to the required feel of motion, i.e. what does it feel like to do that which I now understand I must do?
Step 3: QUALITY REPETITION
We structure your practice sessions to provide you the feedback required to KNOW you are improving. And to ensure that you repeat your new feel of motion correctly and frequently enough to be able to do it without thinking, i.e. build muscle memory. How you practice will determine how you play. So a Golfstruck lesson teaches you how to practice smart!
Step 4: BUILD AN EFFECTIVE PERFORMANCE ROUTINE
When practicing (repeating your motion), we will show you the performance routine that works best for the type of shot you are learning. When your practice sessions include an Effective Performance Routine, you can produce quality ball flights – on command, i.e. take a better game to the golf course!
An Effective Performance Routine does (4) important things:
a) Sets you up properly to the ball
b) Aligns you properly to your target
c) Focuses your attention and feel of motion on where you’re going
d) Starts your swing
Notice what a good performance routine doesn’t do:
- It doesn’t let you think about WHAT you are doing, only WHERE you are going!
- It doesn’t let your mind wander to things like swing mechanics, fear, anxiety, missing, winning or losing.
You learn how to focus ONLY ON WHERE YOU ARE GOING – so your body gets one very simple message from your mind when over the ball – GO THERE!
