THE MASTERS IS NEXT WEEK!! And the defending champion has a very enviable skill that so many of us would love to acquire: HOW TO FORGET THAT BAD SHOT AND MOVE ON WITH POSITIVITY AND CONFIDENCE!! The subject comes up often as to how the number 1 player in the world, Dustin Johnson, has the uncanny ability to forget bad shots immediately like water off a duck’s back, to allow him to bounce back with barrages of Birdies to keep his chances of winning very much alive.
This is an incredibly important skill to acquire and it is important to understand the science behind it to help with this difficult task. A couple of real experts in this field from the University of Nevada in Las Vegas and the University of Southern California, Gabriele Wulf and Rebecca Lewthwaite, have some terrific info on motor skill learning at this website: Gabriele Wulf Podcast

By now, the resolutions you made at the start of the year regarding your golf performance and general health have either become a habit (nice work!) or a distant memory (join the club!).
If you’re like the majority of people that struggle to make their resolutions stick, and find your game stuck at a constant plateau year on year, then perhaps you could benefit from some guidance.
Many people make resolutions or set goals without knowing if they are realistic or developing a plan for how to achieve them. This can lead to doubt, confusion and the tendency to give up when faced with the first obstacle or sign that things aren’t progressing as hoped for.
The teams at Wisdom in Golf and Golf Fit Pro have seen thousands of golfers try to get better through coaching, fitness or a combination of both. The people that we see achieve their goals tend to plan effectively, measure their progress and realise that making lasting and tangible improvements takes time and is rarely a linear process.
When listening to our clients tell the story of what they have tried and failed to achieve in the past, we hear the same mistakes over and over:
CLASSIC GOLF RESOLUTION MISTAKES
Golf Resolution 1 – “I’m going to improve how my golf swing looks”
Classic Mistake – Chasing positions in your golf swing, instead of feels and outcomes
This is one aspect of golf learning and instruction that has been absolutely ground to a pulp and has seen the worst results throughout the decades. The reason??
Golf Resolution 2 – “I’m going to quantify my on-course performance”
Classic Mistake – Keeping stats for fairways and greens hit to inform directional control
CLASSIC FITNESS RESOLUTION MISTAKES
Fitness Resolution 1 – “I’m gonna get more flexible”
Classic Mistake – Chasing rotational mobility / flexibility gains with limited understanding of how to achieve them.
In my experience, there are 3 key components to improving mobility – Self Massage, Stretch, Range of Motion
Self Massage is basically improving the tissue quality of muscle and fascia (connective tissue) through basic massage techniques using a foam roller and spiky ball.
Stretching is simply looking to lengthen the muscle.
Range of Motion is using the improvement tissue quality and muscle length and take the key joints through range of motion.
The video playlist below provides an example mobility routine for the hips – a major contributor to rotation and power in the golf swing. 1 set of each exercise for around 30 secs each side x 3 per week should get on the right track.
Fitness resolution 2 – “I’m gonna get more powerful, so I can hit the ball further”
Classic Mistake – Loading up the bar before developing the required stability and core strength
Lifting too heavy, too early not only increases the risk of injury, it can also limit your power producing potential. We need solid stability and core strength to be able to transfer power gains to our golf swing. If we don’t have a strong, solid base and the core muscle strength to transfer ground reaction force to the upper body, it can be a bit like firing a cannon from a canoe i.e. not very effective!
The video playlist below provides some basic level exercise ideas for strengthening the key muscles around the hips and core. Try 3 sets of 10 reps for each exercise, 3 times per week.

Talk about a fun thing to practice!! To have the permission to top the ball is very liberating because you are actually trying to miss the shot and you will realize you can be very precise doing it mainly because you don’t care how bad you top it! The great news is that you can be equally as adept at hitting the ball solidly and smoking your irons pure like Colin Morikawa!

We also talk about the standard and traditional wrap around finishes that are equally as good for handling the big momentum that pounds through the ball and towards the target, so stay tuned, this video is going to be a lot of fun!!

Positional Golf Coaching
Positional based teaching is internal focus based learning. Where one is instructed to place their body parts into the positions one would have when they are performing like the professionals we see on television. This is extremely backwards thinking as the body positions of that particular professional were acquired as young kids sending a golf ball towards a target with no thinking involved at all.
