Video Golf Tip | Mirror Neurons

Sam Sneed was one of my dearest friends and we miss him a great deal. Sam's favorite round of golf was in 1954 when he beat Ben Hogan in a playoff. They had special competition and Sam dearly loved playing with Ben Hogan, but interestingly he told me that he hand never seen Ben Hogan hit a shot. I thought that was kind of odd for as much as he had played with him, the vaunted golf swing and the knowledge of the swing and intensity that Sam might have tried to tap into that. Sam almost anticipated the scientific research about mirror neurons, the population of neurons in the brain that fire and copy what you see. A whole business of cyber vision was based on the thought that you could watch something and copy it. That has a negative side and a positive side. Obviously Sam felt that watching Ben Hogan would hurt his golf swing, would bother his tempo. Perhaps watching a Tour player and someone with a smooth or even tempo might help us with our golf swing. So think about it. Think about when you are firing your mirror neurons. What should I be watching and what should I be avoiding.
