I recall watching Tiger Woods practice at the Masters where, to the disappointment of the on looking crowd, he proceeded to make full swings with his driver only to hit the ball no more than 100 yards. He couldn’t have cared less about the distance, what he wanted to do was ‘feel’ the new position he was working on.
The Rhythm Method
Discover your perfect golfing rhythm, and tap into your sensitive side to find your touch around the greens.
There is a Zen saying that goes something like this: ‘To know one thing means to know its relationship to all things.’ In golf, I find that the more you can pull from your experience of the world around you, the easier it will be to unlock the potential that already lies within. Harnessing the simple rhythm of your breath, or the beating of you heart, will give you a connection to perfect rhythm. Tapping into the sensitivity in your hands developed as a painter, musician, pilot or surgeon is a connection to great ‘touch’ as well. When learning the golf, use your imagination, focus on an analogy that you can relate to – and you’ll find that you may already know what it takes to play this crazy game!
