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.
