Biomechanics; the science built on ancient principles that predates golf swing instruction, can help you use the laws of motion for more fluid shots
For 2018 I’d like to change the focus of my training and concentrate on helping you learn and practice some ancient biomechanical principles so that you can play a more effortless and enjoyable game of golf.
I am of course not abandoning the cornerstone training of Chi Motion GOLF which is Breath Centered Meditation (also known as Chan, Zen or Dhyana depending on whether you’re tracing the Chinese, Japanese or Indian roots of this practice respectively).
Breath Centered Meditation is categorically proven to strengthen your mind~body connection by reducing all that mental chatter, lowering your heart-rate, calming the nervous-system and helping you to access the normally elusive realm of relaxed concentration.
Here’s my You Tube series of three video lessons all about the breath, the practice and playing golf in the zone. Store the link somewhere safe so you can use it as a reference and a guide this coming season.
Now the other part of my training and research into the mind~body connection is around biomechanics, taken from my years of training and teaching ancient movement principles, primarily from the martial arts which I’ve been studying since 1987.
Here’s a dictionary definition.
Biomechanics: Noun - the mechanics of a living body, especially of the forces exerted by muscles and gravity on the skeletal structure; the branch of physics involving analysis of the actions of forces.
Simply put, it’s the study of human motion.
My personal study of biomechanics has been about finding out what can help the body to obey the intent of the mind (so that idea and action are in synch) and what can ensure that all golf shots from the swing to the putting stroke stay fluid, effortless and yet still precise…especially when a golfer is under pressure?
Well, if you’re part of my community you’ll know that I haven’t just been thinking about these questions for a couple of months or a couple of years but actually for a couple of decades!
I’ve put together a list of 13 Principles of Effortless Golf based on my research and development in collaboration with my students and fellow coaches around the world.
Would you like a copy?
All you need to do is send me a quick message and let me know your two biggest issues when it comes to movement in your golf game.
That’s anything to do with issues or difficulties you have with the moving parts of your swing. It could be shortening your back-swing, over-rotating, failing to keep your head behind the ball, being unbalanced at the finish position and so on.
I’m currently creating some additional bonus material for a new video series on biomechanics which will only be available to my newsletter subscribers.
If you’d like to be included please sign up for my newsletter here and I’ll send you more details along with a FREE 7-page Training Report!
It would really help me out if I could learn more about some of the problems you’re facing when it comes to golf biomechanics so I can put the finishing touches on my offer.
In return, I’d be happy to send you a PDF copy of my 13 Principles of Effortless Golf.
