How do you learn
The physical side of achieving a good putting stroke is generally hampered by what we feel we should be doing to achieve it. By trying to make something happen, do you cause the effects to be alien and unnatural? Let nature take it cause and the stroke will end up being as easy as it should be.
So many golfers read books, magazines and even web sites and get the incorrect feedback from the instructions they reading. We all have differing learning styles.
- some are visual and like to use their eyes and either read, watch videos or copy their tutor;
- others are audible and like to be given instructions verbally – or listen to the hit of the ball or the ball going in the hole;
- other’s are the type of golfer that like to just get out there and hit as many golf balls until they get it right – known as the kinaesthetic type.
- Then we have the person who is a mixture of these, good on you – you can learn so much but be careful to use your more dominant style.
The way to test yourself – imagine you have bought yourself a flat pack piece of furniture. Do you?
1. Open the box and read the instructions?
2. Open the box and pass the instructions to someone else and get them to read it to you?
3. Open the box and just get on with it not bothering to read the instructions?
4. Or, maybe two of the above?
So, when was the last time you had a lesson, read a book, listened to someone giving you an instruction or just trying to get it right by going down to the range to hit hundreds of balls? Use YOUR learning style – or get the pro to use your learning style and you will improve quicker and easier. Make sure that you learn the right way.
