Wayne's World Simple Thoughts - Week 1
Wayne Santorini, long time golfshaker, single figure golfer, recently qualified WGTF Golf Coach, offers some simple thoughts on focusing your game. Via a daily series on the golf forums and here on a weekly basis in the game improvement section .
There is a law of motion upon which every efficient golf swing is founded. It states once you create force, if you can influence the direction of that force, you can influence the direction of what the force is applied to.
Always train within your own comfort zone and your own limitations. Use a club that you know you can control ball flight and stay aware after impact to what you feel. After every swing golfers have several seconds to compare the feel of the swing to the corresponding ball flight, and that is where long-term learning starts.
All actions and motions happen in three dimensions. They take place in the right amount of space, in the proper sequence, and in the right time. An effective golf swing keeps the club on plane or in the proper space. It keeps the club behind the hands or in proper sequence, and it has the correct beat or is in the correct time. Of the three - space, sequence, and time- time is the most influential. When motions and actions are out of time, space and sequence are lost.
First set goals that are realistic. Next match your physical condition and athletic talent to your goals. If you then feel the time and effort you now spend on your game is enough to see improvements (and you have not), it is time to either change the sources of information you are using or change the way you have been using the information.
The human body runs on electricity. Every human body and emotional system is wired differently. Every person is a unique individual who feel, see, experience and create motion in his or her own best way. The message is Learn to Control Your Swing - No one Else Can.
Self Discovery is the only approach to learning that can accommodate everyone's potential.
