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.

Practice Routine Many players cannot bring their swing from the range to the golf course; if you have this problem, follow these steps to make your practice time more like game time
Square Clubface At Impact Use a two by four on the ground to represent your impact position and practice slow swings working on getting the clubface to come down square to the two by four with your hips opened, your left arm high and your right arm low
Correct Golf Posture Put your body in the perfect position so that you may swing the club correctly
