Jack Nicklaus said that the proper setup is 99% of the golf swing. He is right. Here’s why:
The setup routine is crucial because of the Law of Dynamic Balance. Simply stated; If you start any movement (in this case, your golf swing) and your mind thinks you are out of balance (even a slight bit), your mind will do whatever it must to get you back in balance.
In the process of re-balancing, your body will basically trash your golf swing.
The Law of Dynamic Balance is responsible for most of the bad shots you make on the golf course.
In contrast: If you start your golf swing from a balanced position. your mind will keep you in balance and just about guarantee a center strike on the golf club.
Think about this fact for a minute:
Out of balance – your body will make a different golf swing every time you swing the golf club but…
In balance – your body will make the same golf swing every time you swing the golf club… Isn’t that the goal?
By guaranteeing perfect balance, this setup routine will remove most of those mysterious mistakes you spend countless hours trying to correct.
This setup routine may be a whole different animal than you’ve seen before. To make sure you understand and remember this important routine, I explain not only what to do, but WHY and HOW it works to make the rest of your golf game better.
|More than just getting ready to hit the golf ball, the stance is where all of the functions that go into hitting a perfect shot get set up, which is why I call it the setup rather than the stance.
Once the setup is correct the rest of the swing becomes a very easy process, provided you use your senses correctly, which is what Bio-Visual Focus will show you how to do.
If you are tempted to take shortcuts keep this in mind: I spent years perfecting this routine. Any elements that were not needed are already gone.
So, if you want to progress quickly pay strict attention to every detail. If there is something that bothers you about the setup, ask me about it and I will explain its importance so you understand it more clearly.
If the setup routine doesn’t seem to be helping, you are probably unknowingly missing a detail. Contact me and we can discuss the situation to figure out what is missing. If you get the setup routine correct, the rest of the golf swing IMMEDIATELY starts to fall into place.
As a bonus, the setup routine engages the Bio-feedback you will use to control your movement and the visual pictures that you will use to create and guide your shots. Once these are engaged, you will be able to focus on every shot without interruption from either your own conscious thoughts or any outside distraction.
PRACTICE the setup routine until you can perform it with very little thought.
A good way to “cheat” at practice is to practice for 15 – 30 minutes before bed and then go to sleep. Your mind will continue to practice during your sleep.
DON’T FORGET to email me on the contact me page so I can make sure you haven’t inadvertently skipped any of the details in this setup.
