Lesson #1: Connecting to the Bio-Feedback Loop

NOTE: If the videos don’t show up, try using Internet Explorer to view them

I’m starting lesson 1 at a place where most golf instructors never go and it is the difference between struggling to learn the golf swing and finding a natural swing easily.

Navy SEALs use a simple breathing exercise to keep them from getting hypothermia in the cold water. The exercise increases body awareness and blocks out negative thoughts. It is a simple trick but it works. The key is in HOW it works.

In golf balance awareness works the same way.

Most golf instructors only touch on balance. They’ll tell you to “get comfortable” or “get balanced” but not much more. The problem is, if your body isn’t in balance, it will try to correct once you start movement, which takes away from your golf swing. This is why you can practice your golf swing on the range for hours at a time and get nowhere. You’re probably just out of balance!

Does it make sense to try to teach any movement without teaching balance first?

Lesson 1 gets you in touch with your balance center so you know if you’re in balance. Once you understand and can use balance to your advantage, there are some really cool things, like shaping shots consistently that can be done with balance.

When you have completed each lesson on video, make sure you take the time to read the material on the page as well.

Although this lesson seems relatively simple, it is of vital importance if you wish to achieve your highest level golf game.

The question here is: Were you able to pinpoint where the majority of the weight was felt under your feet at different times as you walked?

If you could, it means that you saw the images that your subconscious sees during movement. This exercise shows how easy it is to connect with the subconscious mind, which is step 1 of the Bio-Visual Focus process.

If you weren’t able to pinpoint where your weight was moving as you walked, keep trying. This exercise helped someone with little feeling in their feet after a hip operation to not only regain feeling, but to get back out on the golf course and play after years with no hope for doing so.

DON’T FORGET to email Tracy on the “Contact Us” page after each lesson and report your results to him to get the most from each lesson.

    For many years I have paid careful attention to walking with my feet straight so as not to overload my knees or hips. In walking I therefore land on my heel and progress to the ball before pushing off and landing on the next heel. I normally visualise my feet from the top, as if looking down at them but given some attention I can also imagine the process from underneath,

    Interesting. I walk funny. My feet are all over the place. Its a miracle I never fall down in the course of a day.It did take a minute okay twenty and numerous trips around the block but I finally got a grasp of the principle. I think. What I came away with was a visual of each foot making contact on the ground in my mind. Its actually still there. Uh! What do I do with it now?

    to the center of the middle of my foot.

    My right foot I see and feel the heel in perfect balance but then coming down I hit about 2-3 inches out to the right, landing closer to the right side just slightly below
    my little toe?

    left heel outer edge bears more weight rolling along outer edge smoothly ending on ball of foot with just a light touch of the big toe feeling pressure on the push off, the right starts the same but with a feeling of much more pressure on the outer heel rolling along the outer part of foot with most of the weight pressuring the outer ball and last three toes on push off, probably due to bow leg.

    Left leg – lands on inside of right heel, rolls forward onto inside of foot the right portion of the sole. Primary pressure on the push off comes via the the right toe as it crunches up and pushes off. A secondary or a lesser sensation comes through the adjacent toe.
    Right foot – Lands on the middle to right hand side of right heel. Rolls forward to right hand quadrant of soft section of the foot behind the outside toes of this foot.Less pressure on the push off than the left foot but what exists comes from the outer three toes on the right foot.

  • Jim Condry
    #39 written by Jim Condry  6 years ago

    my right foot is consistently landing on the center to inside portion of my heel and pushing off on the ball and big toe of my foot. The left foot is much more unstable in terms of consistent feel. At times I feel the inside center of the heel lands first and at other times I catch the step more with the outside center of the right heel. I do push off consistently with the ball and big toe of the left foot (so much like the right foot in that respect). I tried it barefoot and with shoes. Both time felt the same as far as pressure points.

  • Bill Bondaruk
    #40 written by Bill Bondaruk 6 years ago

    I found that I land on the heels pretty centered, but roll to the out side as if staying clear of the arch. The pinky toe is the strongest part of the foot, just like the hand, pinky finger is like a vis gripper. I notice i have a sort of push that sends energy up my leg to my hip. There is a hip swivel motion slightly forward. It’s like a silent comunication from my feet. I guess I do it unconscously, since there is no sub-conscous.

  • Bill Rowland
    #41 written by Bill Rowland  6 years ago

    I have been working hard at this for 3 days. I land on the out side half of my heals and the weight exits between the ball and the end of my big toe. When I am paying attention I can see my foot and how the weight goes through it

  • John Fergusson-Batte

    Noted right foot is very much on outside of heel and roll is up right side, virtually skipping the ball. Left foot is on inside of heel and roll more to ball.
    I see the bottom of my feet and making adjustment to center both feet, put me off balance at first but becoming easier.

    I can easily see an image of me feet when walking. This comes very easy for me. I strike slightly on the lateral side of the heel and roll up though the middle over the bubbling well. I can correct it whenever I bring my attention there. I notice how just the small amount of heel strike off center makes my knees slightly turn out.

    #55 written by nick liu  6 years ago

    Firstly, I visualize that when I step down, I step down with heel first, I see and feel the weight of it pushing down and moving it to the balls of my feet. I imagine different blue parts for where the weight is on the foot. This gives me a better sense, for focus and to realize where the weight is when I walk. I think I do better without music because my mind and soul connect when this happens.

    I start out with my weight in the center of the heel pad on the left foot then the weight moves to the left of the ball of foot and pushes off to the center. My right foot is different. My weight starts in the center of the heel, then shifts to the ball of the foot and pushes off to the center. I can clearly visualize my feet.

      Here’s the funny thing. If you can pinpoint the feel, your conscious has to be able to access the subconscious to see the pictures. The only thing you need to do is increase your awareness of the pictures your mind is already witnessing.

      If you relax and maybe even close your eyes as you walk, eventually, you’ll become aware or the pictures by the process of myelination explained in the book, “The Talent Code”

      Mike,
      Had you ever noticed this before? You notice it because you have tapped into the bio-feedback and your mind has seen the bio-feedback pictures the body is sending back. When you do lesson 2, you’ll actually be correcting and resending those pictures.

      The real purpose was to be able to realize the clear images that tell you where the weight is felt. This demonstrates that it is easy to enter the subconscious mind and see the subconscious images. Once you can see them, you can use them to correct movement as you’ll do in #2.

I saw it visually in my mind from the top and from the bottom of my feet where the weight was going. Is it better to only form one picture?

    Haven’t paid that much attention to how my foot hits the ground, and that is surprising as I have science fiction like flat feet, and aggressive arthritis as a result….I have a lot of foot pain! Definitely different between the two, right foot was landing on outside of heal and rolling on the outside edge with a push off that was pretty even across the front pad of my foot. The right foot has been surgically disassembled and rebuilt to align it better. The left foot has not, and so it is an inner heal hit that rolls along my nonexistent arch to the ball of my foot. I also put my foot down pretty flat, not much roll action.

  • Michael Goldfarb
    #95 written by Michael Goldfarb  3 years ago

    What was interesting is that I actually tried to walk at first what I perceived as correctly walking heal to toe. It actually hurt my right foot. I tried to just walk as I would normally and sense my feet and noticed both heals land in the center but left foot rolls out then back to the ball for push off. I actually felt the ball at the bottom of my foot. Right foot rolls out and only gets back to the center of foot for push off. I became very conscious of what the feet were doing to support my weight.

  • Eugene Gabaldon
    #96 written by Eugene Gabaldon  3 years ago

    For my right foot I feel the weight as I walk on the entire heel evenly and than to the ball of my foot favoring the big toe. For my left foot the weight is middle to outside on the heel and than to the middle of the ball of my foot and shifting quickly to the outside towards the two toes. I am significantly bowlegged and my heels of my shoes wear unevenly, in particular the left side. Now I think it is more clear as to why I pull the shot more often than not. I can’t say that I can see my feet but I feel every little weight movement and the heaviness as the weight moves into a somewhat uncomfortable area of my left foot.

I felt this yesterday when I did the exercise but missed the visualization part until today. Now I see the bone structure of the foot as the various parts of each bone receive the weight…like looking at a walking skeleton from behind.

      Do you see the image of your feet the subconscious is feeding you?

    It was not too difficult to visualize the contact between foot and ground Doing so it creates an inner feeling of security walkwise, which I have never felt so strong before.

    Both feet move in the same way. Start centered on heel, roll slightly to the inside, then push off mainly from the ball and big toe

      Did you see the image of the feet the subconscious showed the conscious so that you would know this?

      Tom,
      The most important part of the exercise is realizing that to know where your weight moves under your feet, you have to get in touch with the subconscious images sent to the brain by the feet. The clearer you can see those images, the better. Go on to lesson 2.

    When I first started walking I was actually wobbly while concentrating on my feet, after several steps I began to visualise my steps and the pressure points, outside right heel to side of foot and then to the ball and push off. The left foot was more centered but the interesting thing was, after several more steps, I felt more relaxed and stability in my walk.

      Perfect, the object is to see the images sent from the bottoms of your feet to your subconscious. Gp to lesson 2.

    I land on the lateral side of each heel and the weight rolls along lateral (outside) of each foot and then across the ball of the foot. Standing statically, my right foot is balanced (i.e. even spread of weight across by ball of the foot. The left has more weight on the medial side of the ball. (I have Mortons phenomena which results in the foot tending to roll inwards).

    The awareness creates the visualization in my mind

    I have always worked on my “pigeon toed” walk. I feel each of my heals striking the ground and then my as my foot rolls forward my large toe is always working outwards to try and keep my feet straight. Of course now I have a sore spot on each large toe where I have worked on keeping my feet more straight.

      The idea is to see a visual of the weight movement felt in the feet as you walk. If you saw it go to the next lesson.

    #123 written by Thomas Wild 2 years ago

    both feet basically the same – outside of heel then lateral side of each foot ending at center of front foot. Push off forward is centered between ball and outside of foot.

    When I step w/ right foot, I land on the outside of right heel, then I roll thru the big toe. From that, I land on the back center heel of left foot & roll thru all toes, a little splay footed. Thx Troy M

    Was able to do this drill rather easily because I went through the Ultimate Golf System, which, by the way, was the best golf instruction I ever studied. I did find a difference in how each foot laid down which I did not expect.

      You should have seen the image in your mind created by the feel. This image will take you from the Ultimate Golf System to the next level. If you saw the images, go to the next lesson.

    Being a golf professional we have boditrack and I see the same exact images of colors & %of pressure.. I have a very bad left knee from an old football injury and my left knee turns out.Knew my gait was bad but until doing this exercise did not know where my left foot hit.Right perfect ball &heel square landing. Left land on toes to outside of foot. Thanks, today going to look into Aline orthotics.

    Feeling the weight is the easy part. Seeing the image took a little more effort and time. Weight tends to be on the outside of left foot and more centered on the right foot.

  • Richard Rowe
    #131 written by Richard Rowe  1 year ago

    I feel the pressure areas on the feet and only after get some image. The pressure is central at the heel and this is transferred to the ball of the foot as weight moves forward. Both feet are simiar.

      If you continue to practice this drill the images will become more clear as you myelinate the neurons responsible for transferring the feel to images.

  • Douglas Pudsey
    #133 written by Douglas Pudsey  1 year ago

    Never noticed how I walk until started this lesson. Basically when you start to think about this motion you get feed back from your auto balance indicating how, where and why. I believe after walking that you can train yourself to walk straight eg; centre of the heel, ball and push off from the centre. I do not get a picture as yet but, find some unbalancing in my stride during the exercise.

    • admin
      #134 written by admin  1 year ago

      If you keep practicing, you will eventually start seeing the images. It’s also good because it mylinates the neurons involves in the process of converting feel to visual images.

    #135 written by Matt Joy  1 year ago

    Hi Tracy
    Yes I can picture my feet. I feel that I have little pressure on the heels unless I deliberately try to walk that way.
    My natural walk creates a feeling and then image of greatest pressure being on inside of the soles and big toes as I push off to go forwards.
    Cheers

    Hi Tracy

    I feel most of my weight through my outside heels and then the balls of my feet. I now walk around everywhere noticing were my weight is on my feet. Sometimes my weight is not always in the same place.

    My right foot has a centre strike but the weight feels as if it all goes down the left side and out through the big toe. The left foot has a left side heel strike and the weight going down the left side and out the small toe.I see blue shoes

  • Tony Tribble
    #140 written by Tony Tribble  1 year ago

    My right foot weight goes from back of heel to ball of foot near the toes. My left foot goes from middle of heel & weight lands on the ball of the foot but closer to the toes & toward the outside of the foot.

  • Rick Barstow
    #141 written by Rick Barstow  1 year ago

    My right foot heel contact after my weight went forward then wt.shifted onto rt. foot laterally then to ball then to big toe,as the heel has come off the ground and laterally contact with ground as a continuous rock from heel to toes w/Rt.foot pointing straight ahead. The wt. comes off of the rt. toes as left heel accepts the wt. as I continues to have my wt. forward of cog. and sequence is the same w/ the left foot except it is a little pigeoned toed.

  • Wayne Thomas
    #143 written by Wayne Thomas  10 months ago

    For me the sensations and visualization change with the footwear. Barefoot or sock feet, there is heavy outside heel pressure rolling up to the outer balls of the feet finishing on the big toes. Wearing dress shoes, it is a similar pattern but stepping heavier on the right heel and more pressure on the outside ball of the right foot than the left. Wearing Asics running shoes for walking the treadmill there is less pressure on the outsides of the heel because of the extra heel support to prevent over-pronation. The right heel strikes heavier than the left but both feel similar in the middle ball of the foot rolling up to the toes.

    Right land on the outside heel, move to outside then push with the ball and big toe.
