  1. You practice on the range with the goal of making it easy to repeat on the course without having to think about it. Make WHAT easy to repeat? Think about WHAT? The best way to get better at golf is to play golf. If you are going to practice golf, practice playing golf . . . with the proper and SAME focus. If you cannot focus properly on the range, then best to stay off it.

If you are on the practice range, and you are not practicing golf in a manner that you play golf, then you are not practicing. Why in the world would you practice on the range with one focus, whatever it is, then change the focus when out on course? FR
  3. What does this even mean ? Most good instructors offer on-course instruction in strategy, club selection, alignment and in addition to the full swing, offer instruction in the short game and putting. Ghost The problem is not that you don’t understand, rather, that you are intoxicated on the KoolAid you’ve been served, and refuse to consider the world isn’t flat. I guess some are just born followers. Not sure why, but I’m going to say it for the 10th time. . . I’m not here to spoon feed you. Get the modern golf instructor of your choice to do that for you. The eyes cannot see what the
  4. Fat ... you can continue to ramble on about the wrong focus but since 99% of golf instructors focus on mechanics and the swing motion, you have a long road ahead of you. And do tell us when this focus change came to you since your posting history indicates a lot of involvement in "swing minutia". Ghost wrote: “Fat ... you can continue to ramble on about the wrong focus but since 99% of golf instructors focus on mechanics and the swing motion, you have a long road ahead of you.” Ghost, my game is just fine - thank you - and there is nothing but enjoyment on the golfing road ahead of me

  6. JBW Well said. The problem is that most golfers, particularly on WRX, refuse to accept that changing their focus will change their golf swing (motion). Golfers cling to focusing on positions and mechanics of the golf swing (motion) itself in an attempt to modify the motion, giving chase to the depths of the rabbit whole. One member on this forum seems to have a single agenda, which relates to his self-appointed role as defender of modern instruction. . . and to point out that amateur (most) golfers are largely inept in their approach, not golf instruction. To be fair, I suppose I hav

  8. Mods Sorry, I missed the above reference thread completely . . . it might be best to move my post into that thread, if you can Thank you FR
  9. Talk of this $10 million match between Tiger and Phil brewing, as though this would be some huge duel between two greats. I would qualify this a battle of two ‘has-beens,’ and have next if no interest whatsoever in such a match. What WOULD peak my interest, however, is if Tiger and Phil each put up $10 million of their OWN money. Instead of playing, as per usual, for someone else’s money. I’m not about rehash the past greats, and the times in which they played. . . . driven to not only win, but to continuously perform at a high level in order to feed their families. No $1 million winner’s
  10. “Two choices in golf. Improve slowly or not at all. . . Genius” Nothing confusing or misunderstood about that statement. It’s pretty clearly stated. ****** “Some have misunderstood slow as meaning you can’t make a leap in scores with a simple improvement.” What other gauge of improvement is there? There is only a single objective in golf. . . get the ball in the hole in as few strokes as possible.
  11. The KEY is PROPER focus. . . which isn’t the golf swing (motion) FR
  12. Hyunsbuns I hope you don’t take this the wrong way, but your focus is WAY off. I realize it’s easy to be critical, however, I’m not offering criticism of you golf swing. Honestly, I did not even look at your swing. Irrelevant really, as nothing good will ever come from focusing on P6. . . . let alone focusing on the golf swing (motion) at all. It’s almost universal in sport that an important objective is maximize time and space. As this pertains to the golf swing, the ultimate way to achieve both is maximize time and space to target. If your target is the target, then you free yourself
  13. Burt, I get it. Most things are more enjoyable as your proficiency improves. Nonetheless, you don’t play golf for a living, so you have zero pressure to perform at any particular level. First, at least for a while, abandon keeping score. Then, clear your mind of expectations, and change your focus. Forget about the golf swing motion, and focus on the target - on swinging to the target, and advancing the ball to target. Visualize the desired ball flight to the target. Stay relaxed and within yourself. The ball is not your target, nor what you are trying to ‘hit.’ If you execute a shot as
  14. There is a false underlying premise in this thread, which is that ‘change’ is necessarily associated with ‘improvement.’ Equally, if not more important, is that ‘unlearning’ is harder then learning. . . and most important to the insufficient masses that have given chase down the rabbit hole. Again, everyone is obsessed with the golf swing motion, and all the minutia therein. Change your focus and you WILL improve! Edit: grammar
  15. Monte wrote: “Some of you are missing the point. You can have a lot of immediate learning and improvement, it takes time to stick and for it to become your primary movement.” ***** Not missing anything. You clearly state above, ‘you can have a lot of immediate learning and improvement.’ Odd, because you also state the title of your thread is ‘genius.’ Which is it? At any rate, in the moment of ‘immediate learning and improvement’ that you acknowledge, what changes? Did the golfer physically change? No! Did the golfer build, as you put it, so-called new ‘motor pathways’ on the lesson
