Positive Thought Process
Is Best For Your Game
The possibility exists to learn something from every golf shot you hit.
You may not feel that you arc that intense on the golf course or you may not
want to become that intense. After
rcad.ng what follows you may want
to experiment with with the process
of conscious feedback.
The golf swing and the imbed
ded thought process is going to occur
each and every time you make a
shot. It is simply a matter of whether
or not you choose to exercise some
control over what your mind is
telling your body to do.
Mind And Body Must Work Together
The golf swing is very much a psycho-motor skill. Psycho-motor skill is
a term used by educators and those professionals who teach motor skills.
The term implies that certain mechanical or muscular skills cannot be re
fined to perfection without the assistance of both conscious and subcon
scious thought processes.
An athlete is an individual who learns and assimilates most pure motor
skills readily with a little practice. It is usually a matter of learning from a
skilled instructor the most efficient and effective method of manipulating the
muscles in the body to accomplish the desired result.
The athlete learns and practices the desired motor control of his muscles
through repetitive practice and reinforcing feedback both from his coach and
from recognizing when results meet the standard of performance.
Through practice and feedback the athlete can perfect pure motor skills
to the point that no conscious thought need be used to replicate the skill. A
well trained athlete can reproduce these acquired skills perfectly 85% of the
time when there is no mental interruption of the physical or muscular perfor
Michael Jordan Is Good, But Not Automatic
Michael Jordan shoots perfect foul shots more than 85% of the time
over any give season. He almost never misses two in a row. Why is it that in
the championship series against the Blazers that he missed two in a row on
two different occasions? Both occasions occurred when the Blazers were
making a comeback, and Michael must have said to himself "I can't miss ei
ther of these shots." Enter the negative mental function into the equation. In
any other circumstance he shooLs even better near the end of the game.
The same is true in the game of golf. Even the most well rehearsed
moves find occasions when the muscle memory is not an automatic solution
to the problem we arc facing. Wc need to be aware of the process involved
in storing feedback in our memory banks.
Conscious Vs. Unconscious Feedback
If we do not consciously accept the positive and negative reinforcement
each shot provides, it will be fed into our memory subconsciously. It only
takes a few seconds to decide if wc hit a poor shot or a good shot, even
though the good shot may not have produced the exact rcsulLs that wc had
A good example of allowing a subconscious memory set to build up is
when a golfer says, "1 just can't hit a five iron," or "For some reason 1 never
seem to be able to hit a shot over a greenside bunker." These negative mind
sets arc the result of a series of evcnLs being installed in our subconscious
memory as negative events.
If we consciously take a few moments to access the result of each golf
shot as it occurs, we may find that some negative function entered the equa
tion on a shot that may otherwise produce negative feedback. Maybe we for
got to check the wind or something interrupted our prcshot routine. Possibly
we did not correctly estimate the distance or wc may have rushed the shot
Heaven knows there are a gaggle of variables which influence any golf
shot. If wc can discipline ourselves to note variables and any influence they
have on our play we may well be able to identify the variable which con
tributed to a bad shot. The same is true for a good shot that docs not produce
the desired results, but does not get us in serious trouble.
Learn To Go With The Flow
One good example is Sam Sncad's admonition, "You have got to dance
with the gal you brung to the party." That is, if your normal draw is not there
and you are hitting the ball to the right consistently, you may as well adjust
your line of flight to accommodatc a straight shot.
Some of these unintentional variables can be corrected on the course
while you are playing. Others should be consciously noted and placed on
your priority list for your next practice session.
Next week I will explore several ways to classify your misses and sug
gest some ways to overcome the inconsistencies in your game.
