I played that hole many times. I could see it in my sleep. Yet I
scored the same. Forother sports, it’s different.Take basketball, for instance. Practice layups like Michael Jordan. Get a two-pointer by leaping like a kangaroo…Or remember when he makes those free throws? Is heconsistent? Perhaps 90% of all attempts.Or take the game of baseball. Focus on the ball…catch…run…swing. There’s not many variations.But golf is different. You see…The Swing is what mattersHow do you perfect it? Perhaps – like me – you focus on body posture. But if you don’tmaster body position…injury can occur.Pick up an ordinary club. How do you grip it? Do you grip it too tightly…or too loosely?It’s got to be in the middle. It’s kind of like holding a baby.What grip should you use…overlapping, interlocking, or tenfinger?What demons do you wrestle with? Keep your headdown…know when to turn the shoulders…how to maintainproper balance…keep enough distance from the ball…focus on the hips…watch yourbalance…observe the body rhythm…Which brings up the topic of swing. There’s the downswing…back swing…how to follow through. Somuch goes into it.Golf seems so simple – yet you work with many items. It’s easy to twist your body out of shape. It’seven easier to become discouraged. There’s got to be an easier way.
My Lesson Learned From Horse Winkers
For months I sweated…working on a simpler way…something easier than all my PTGAA golf instruction.Then my mind turned to my father’s farm. How did they train the horses? We used blinders (some call themwinkers or blinkers)…It’s widely used in horse racing. Horse racers share a common belief. The horse is easily distracted.They need to
. The horse focuses on what’s ahead. They can’t look backwards. Horses become lessdistracted and not focused on crowds. And here’s a thought I pondered. If horses become spooked by crowds…what about golfers?” I didn’t realize how poor my alignment was. In less than 20 minutes I fixed my swing.” – Masai Okuda
Focus Vision Breakthrough
Focus comes from simple exercises. Remember the movie “The Karate Kid”? The young kid Daniel wishes to become a karatemaster. He experts “deep” teachings. You know the kind. The ones taught by pro-golf teachers.But the older karate master knew better. Remember what he did? He asked the kid to wax the car. “Wax on, wax off.” Two handscircle right. Two hands circle left. The kid practiced for hours – but complained. I’m sure the movie bleeped it out. The kidprobably cussed up a storm.But the master refused to listen. He had Daniel sand floors and paint fences. But Daniel persisted. He tested the waters for himself.Then it’s show time. Time for the big fight. Except the kid won. All the practicing paid off.Just like the glasses!
