The Ultimate Game in Learning How to Learn – “Golf” – Part 3

THE MOST DANGEROUS BARRIER in LEARNING GOLF

This barrier to Learning and Succeeding in golf is the most damaging. The “Ego” does not want to admit it is having difficulty and is feeling “stupid.”

For a “Student of Golf (and of Life)” the solution is to ask the question: “What don’t I know here?” – wait for an answer and while doing so list “What do I Know here?”

You will be amazed that “What you do not know delivers up a “Question” to fit into the gaps between “What I do Know!”

PROBLEM: “Misunderstood Word or Concept” and the problems that it creates:

  • To help you appreciate how important the basic definitions of the fundamentals of the golf swing are, I would like you to first experience “The Power of a Word” by answering the following question without referring to Google of an Oxford Dictionary.
  • The question is: Is it true that when the crepuscule arrives, most golfers play worse? Is this true or false?
    • I have found that most students give me a funny look and then ask: “What did you say?”
    • When asked if they can duplicate the Question I asked, 99.9% of the students cannot.
    • The fact to learn here is that when you do not understand the word, you lose consciousness to what is going on and this disempowers you to a lesser or greater level.
    • Without knowing the power of the “Misunderstood Word and/or Concept” you will always become confused when attempting to become a competent and improving golfer.
  • SOLUTION: You can now consult your Dictionary and when the word “Crepuscule” is replaced by “Twilight” or “darkness”, every student can have their own answer.
  • When the Student does not comprehend the correct meaning for any golf term, to either a lesser or greater degree the hearing will shut down, and Confusion to a lesser or greater degree follows.
  • Golf language Deafness

The “Golf Language” that you most definitely need to know includes the following “Basics Definitions.”

  • Grip, Stance, Waggle, Forward Press, Takeaway, Backswing to the Top, Start Downswing, Release, Impact, Follow Through, Finish, Body Pivot, Educated Hands.
