Video Golf Tip | Expertise

I want to provoke some thoughts in you about self improvement. There is a field in psychology that is call expertise. Many of us study people from all sorts of disciplines, the arts, in music, in sports and we look at what are the commonalities of people who go on to have legendary careers. Who set records. Who write many, many books. What is the difference between them and us ordinary people? Well there are lots of them and I will talk about several in these lessons for you, but the main lesson here is that there are two ways, and you have to be clear on this, two ways to improving yourself. One is to find what is your best and to do all the things that are necessary to get you at your best. But that has to be compared to the other model of expertise and that is copying the experts. You have to know is it that I am just trying to get to my best level or am I trying to steal from another, copy Tiger Woods to get better. Then I have to do what he does. I have to throw away what I have done and do what he does. Be clear in your own mind. Is it that I want to get to the best level that I have ever been to before by doing the things that I did in the past, or am I going to do things that other experts do, but be clear on it.

Playing a Fairway Bunker Choke down on the club, make a three quarter swing and pick the ball clean
Golf Posture and Stance Your posture is determined by your arm swing. If you swing up and down on a two plane swing then you should stand more upright. If you swing your arms around on a one plane swing then stand more bent over on the balls of your feet.
Timing of Motion in the Golf Swing Match the movement of the club with the movement of the body to arrive back at the same point
