How to Learn a New Swing in 4 Easy Steps
Learning new characteristics of a new swing, or simply changing your golf swing to something different altogether can be a challenging and time consuming process. However, PGA professional Ryan Metcalfe believes his 4 simple tips will help ease this typically difficult transition.
Step 1 - Seek professional help: By going to seek the advice of a qualified PGA professional, this will give you the guidance and structure for what you must to do to have a more successful golf swing. Make sure this source is trusted and reliable and will give you the best help possible, specific to you as an individual.
Step 2 - Cognitive stage: This stage requires you to show yourself and your instructor that you understand what is needed to be done regarding your swing. You are not just imitating a particular movement, you understand why this behaviour is needed in regards to changing the effectiveness of your swing.
Step 3 - Associative stage: This stage requires you to practice this new movement with a golf ball as part of the drill. The actual quality of the golf shot isn't important, simply understanding your movement and putting it to work is the specific idea behind this stage.
Step 4 - Autonomous stage: This stage is the most difficult, but where the majority of your success will take place. The autonomous stage is where you will perform your new swing unconsciously, the practice has been done before and now this is an area where the information should of been understood and is now easily and unconsciously perfected.
Using these 4 simple steps, developing a completely new swing or a new move in a complicated swing, can be brokedown into a much easier and more efficient way.
