Their brainlets are underdeveloped from childhood and they are unable to make intellectual decisions and solutions. Blame your equipment, not yourself! Buy a new set of clubs and change balls, shoes and wardrobe. It will help the golf industry too. Practice hitting targets and creating the shots you need to play well. Pressure is on to move it left to right, right to left, high or low, a stinger etc. Just blasting the driver and watching the shot is a waste of time for anything other than warming up. Same with the wedges. Pick some targets and hit shots to the target.
I agree with what he is saying on shot shape. Know how to hit both but stick with one shot for most, hit the green and 2 putt and everyone will be shooting in the 70s pretty fast. Hi John, this was such a good read.. Could you please write and article about how to make a plan to lower your handicap for different handicaps? I know, I teach golf! There are valid reasons why no two swings in the hall of fame are exactly alike. There is a level of golf you have not experienced yet and it is not because of a lack of effort, it was pre determined by the era in which you were born.
An entire generation accepts two or three errant drives and semi accurate approach shots as normal, relying on endless hours of short game practice to salvage scores. It is the instinctive beast that rules the athletic world, not the stressed out puppeteer.
Do you think it is coincidence that chiropractors and mental game coaches arrived on the scene at about the same time? John Haime. Hi Everyone — thank-you for your comments. As a complement to this article, you might be interested in an article I wrote for GolfWRX last month highlighting how we work with a young, up and coming player early in the year and the areas we focus on.
Unfortunately, most are immature mentally and physically regardless of their playing ability. They cannot discipline themselves because they have a childish approach to the game and career. They play for fun and practice becomes a painful experience. Only those with an obsessive-compulsive mentality and proper mentoring and training can succeed. They are few. Not another one of you. Yeah, most shots happen within yards, but most of them have pre-determined outcomes. Unless you are actually advocating that players practice tap-in putts, the average good players round has WAY more shots outside yards since they miss putts by so little.
The rest of the article was good. The better the player the more the short game becomes critical to success and the outcome. It hurts your credibility to be this off in an area. I agree very much with points 4 and 5. When I am on the range you can look down and notice most people full swinging and trying to mimic swings their body cannot produce. From your family and friends. Without support, there is nothing. You need a team with you at all times. Team to manage your time, to manage your food, to manage your tee times, to manage your practice, to manage your money, to manage your life.
Any decent player has game. Lol nonsense. How much support did Vijay Singh have in the jungles of Borneo as a young pro. Or Sorentram in the snow in Sweden. Or Woosnam living out of a caravan and building power by thousands of hours swinging in long meadow grass. You know about being alone, huh, you a loner and all, no friends, no family, you know it well lol. If a player is good enough, physically and mentally, he or she will get there regardless of support.
Not to criticise the author or this article, which is excellent, but if a young player is relying on a coach to structure their practice routines, or a mental coach to tell them to stay positive etc. I agree with many of these points. I know my practice routine is not at all like my rounds. Steve Patterson. Great article.
Thanks so much for providing this information as I believe every golfer can find at least one aspect of your information to improve upon. Well, how about that. Every bit of this is actually excellent. Worth saving and going back to. Some psychologists see a certain amount of blaming conditions, equipment, lies, weather, etc. Seems so simple that of course anybody interested in actually improving would do it, but almost nobody does. On 4 — Strokes gained has shown that driving and approach shots are a good predictor of performance over a longer period of time and are much more influential than SG around the green.
I think John is right on with this article. I played at a top-ranked DII school and I only found out most of what this article stated much too late in my process. This should be printed and taped above the bed for any young player who is serious and aspires to the PGA Tour. Players focus too much on how their swing looks as opposed to embracing their swing.
Many of these points can be applied to every day life. There are a lot of haters on this site. It gets rediculous reading negative comments on an editor that is trying to help golfers stay positive. How do you do that? Lots of practice off the golf course. Your email address will not be published. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
