Have you ever hit a poor shot
That started a disappointing streak of bad shots
Where your 4 previous shots went well
You were swinging the club naturally
Your motion was fluid
Your head was clear
Yet, after 1 bad shot in 5
Your brain starts looking for solutions
What did I do wrong?
Did I lift my head?!
I got to keep my head down!
So ‘head down’ is now stamped on your brain … to prevent it from popping up again
Golfers are often diligent in not letting swing errors repeat … so the brain starts to focus on the perceived swing problem … detracting from your coordination
As you’re now multitasking your golf swing … as ‘head down’ leap frogs your previous tasks (that were working) … and your swing checklist is now out of the order you had practiced at the range … and were doing well with
Has that happened to you?
If so, our suggestion –
Slowly fill your lungs with oxygen
It will help you re-engage into what you were doing well prior … by snapping your mind out of analytical mode … so that your brain doesn’t take over your golf swing
Go back to having one simple swing thought that involves motion … for example: the GMS Stepping Drill helps Golfers regain a rhythmic motion with less thinking … by re-engaging the feel of a fluid follow-through
As opposed to trying hard to keep your head down … further restricting a smooth, consistent motion from happening … and limiting follow-through
Will re-engage your smooth Tick Tock swing
