Attentional Focus Coaching for Golfers.

If you struggle with the game of golf, irrespective of how much you "grind", it may be time for you to switch focus from your technique and begin to understand HOW to TRUST it. When you understand the relationship between vision, thought and action you stop trying to control your swing and take control of your game. The elusive skill for performance golf is ATTENTIONAL FOCUS. Take time to learn it here. You already know the alternative.

Golf coaching practices worldwide do not SYSTEMATICALLY explain and train Attentional Focus when learning, practicing and playing resulting in many persistent and frustrating SYMPTOMS, both physical and psychological. Why? Attentional Focus lies at the heart of effective motor skill acquisition AND psychological performance. Many determinedly hope they will one day trust in competition, skills continually modified and doubted in practice.

There are approximately 86 billion neurons in the average brain. Different patterns of these neurons link and form memories which support all of your TRUSTED physical actions in life. Think of a life skill you perform successfully today and you created a memory for it. Your golf swing and putting stroke SHOULD also become TRUSTED but you will have to significantly improve how you are PRACTICING to play golf. Trust needs deliberate practice.

The golf swing and putting stroke are just 2 of 100's of physical tasks you carry out in your life. When you attempt to develop a golf swing your goal should be to try to build a trusted memory in your BRAIN. Neurons begin to link up and fire your muscles appropriately, the more you repeat the action, the stronger become the interaction between those neurons.

What do you think happens if you do NOT repeat the same move when you are trying to hit balls or you attempt to modify your swing? Different neurons are introduced in order to fire the muscles differently. What about the next swing change? I hope you will see why lifetimes spent modifying technique is the primary reason for NOT developing trust in it.

HOW is TRUST in your swing or putting stroke achieved in golf? When you STOP striving to control them. Keeping your Attentional Focus occupied with where you wish to SEND your ball (the task) as you look down at the ball, allows your NON-thinking brain to perform the physical actions. You experience what if feels like to play golf FREE of swing thoughts, just like you perform every other life task successfully today. You experience what it means to PLAY golf, not consciously control your golf clubs. Wasn't that your goal when you started?
