In the first video, you connected to your subconscious mind to really feel and see your true movement Now you will see how to hack the movement “map” in your mind and watch how your body WANTS to follow without practice.
The golf swing works the same way. Once you base your movement map on real feel from balance feedback, it’s only a matter of adjusting the picture from exercise one and the body automatically follows.
Watch the first video and do the exercise. Afterward, read the information below the video for a full explanation. ONLY once you have completed the first exercise should you go to the second video.
Were you able to walk correctly?
Did you notice anything about your posture? If not do the exercise again and pay attention to your posture. You will be surprised.
So to get a little deeper into how the mind works, your subconscious relays what your conscious mind wants to do (your intention) over to the body. In this case you provided a visual image related to the movement and your body followed.
How did your posture correct? Your mind creates a kinetic chain reaction of events that comprise any movement and it’s all based on the intention you give it. When you corrected the foot falls of your walk, your kinetic chain was also able to correct your posture even though that wasn’t part of the intention.
This is important because setting up and moving in balance during your golf swing will allow your kinetic chain to correct other issues that are standing in the way of a good golf swing.
I’m sure this exercise is a little “clunky” It takes quite a bit of focus and although correct, your new walk is not yet natural. This step is important for two reasons:
- It shows how your body will follow the correct image provided that image is tied to real balance feedback from your body.
- This works for the golf swing. It’s pretty much how Golf Swing Control works to correct your golf swing. That said, it takes practice but it is an important part of the learning process. The third step does not work until you understand and can use this step.
This next video may really blow you away. I will give you a visual intention that doesn’t seem to have anything to do with the mechanics of walking properly. When you perform this exercise, notice your posture again. In this case you will be using one universal visual intention to control all parts of your walk.
This is where Bio-Visual Focus gets fun! The golf swing works the same way. The only caveat for the golf swing is that you have to use step two to set up the visual intention for the downswing. Once set up, the downswing using visual intention is powerful and accurate, yet almost effortless.
Watch the next video and do the exercise, keeping in mind how these exercises work the same way for your golf swing.
So what happened here is that your body’s kinetic chain responded to a seemingly unrelated intention and corrected not only your posture but your foot falls as well. This is ultimately where we will go with the golf swing.
These lessons also show that you don’t need to practice to fix your walk, or any body movement you make, including the golf swing.
You don’t have to focus on golf swing technique to fix your golf swing.
You should notice a few things:
- Notice your posture.
- Notice how much more efficiently you walk.
- Notice that your back muscles are relaxed instead of tight.
- And finally, notice the weight under your feet is the same as it was for lesson 2.
I have been using visual intention to maintain my golf swing for years, mostly because I cannot practice due to my back injury. Using visual intention gives me the ability to play to a single digit handicap, which means fewer swings and much less pain on the golf course.
Now, visual intention for the golf swing ONLY works when you start and move in perfect balance during your golf swing.
But I have solved the balance issue for you as well. You MUST start from a perfectly balanced stance and the next lesson will give you the routine that took ten years to develop that will place 99% of golfers into a perfect stance so that your body doesn’t start the backswing fighting itself and ruining your golf swing.
Balance is probably the #1 issue I have to address with every student I teach. If you want to see immediate results with your golf game, the setup routine in the next lesson will get you in balance, as long as you slow down and pay attention.

I look forward to hearing from you,
