During any golfer’s swing, the yield away, aback swing, alteration to downswing, downswing, impact, and chase through, the golfer’s arch can in fact move in ten altered ways. It can move beeline up, beeline down, forward, backward, up and forward, down and forward, etc., etc. At atomic seven of these movements are faulty, arch to a top affliction for the golfer. Arch movements, as able-bodied as added golf beat movements, become habits, acceptable or bad, acquired if the golfer was aboriginal acquirements the game.
Jack Nicklaus started arena at about age 9. By the time he took acquaint from his aboriginal teaching Pro, Jack Grout, adolescent Jack had acquired the adulterated addiction of what Grout alleged a “bobbing head.” Like a lot of habits, they are NOT simple to break. No amount how often, Grout told Jack to stop affective his head, Jack could NOT do it. One day, out of arduous frustration, Grout affective adolescent Jack by his coiled albino hair and fabricated Jack hit assurance for three hours… until Jack cried. But Jack Nicklaus got the concrete and aching feedback, and the three hours of repetition, bare for him to breach the habit. Jack Nicklaus teaches and preaches what he calls “a bedrock abiding head.”
Like Jack Nicklaus, golfers are not built-in with bad golf habits. A addiction is an acquired arrangement of movement or behavior, acceptable or bad that becomes built-in in the golfer’s beat and is benumbed to the golfer. Habits are acquired through alliteration of an aspect of the golf beat that may accept been abstruse from one’s own attempts, from addition golfer, from bad advice, adverse annual golf tips, golf books, videos, conceivably even from some golf instructors.
Faulty arch movement may be the a lot of accustomed bad addiction of top affliction golfers. Golfers are usually blind of the behavior or the movement or the habit. If the addiction is faulty, as with a bobbing or affective head, the golfer will apparently never breach 80 or even 90, unless the bad addiction is broken. But like a lot of habits, they are not simple to break.
Physiologists and advisers in academician and motor anamnesis acquaint us that alliteration of the adapted arrangement of behavior is all-important so that the academician can abundance the adapted arrangement as a new addiction and thereby breach the absolute bad habit. For the golfer with adulterated arch movement it agency alliteration of the beat while captivation a abiding head, agnate to the teaching address of Jack Grout.
Some golf agents will authority the anchor end of a club adjoin their student’s arch and accept the apprentice beat and hit balls. Hank Haney acclimated this address with Charles Barkley during Golf Channel’s Barkley Project. It did not work. One acumen is that it is difficult for the abecedary to authority a altogether still club for any breadth of time after the club wavering. Addition acumen is that the abecedary can alone do this for a few account during a archetypal 45 minute lesson. The golfer cannot get abundant repetitions of the adapted abiding arch to breach the adulterated habit.
Wouldn’t it be abundant if the golfer could exercise and beat with a abiding arch to accretion acceptable repetitions to access the new addiction of a abiding head? Is there a way for the golfer to apperceive that she/he is captivation a abiding arch during their swing? Verbal acknowledgment from an able can help. Or the Hank Haney/Charles Barkley access mentioned aloft will advice somewhat, but not abundant to breach the addiction because of too few repetitions. Videotaping can aswell help. But is there something out there that could accord burning acknowledgment to the golfer on any arch movement, at any time during the swing? Wouldn’t it be abundant for the golfer to apperceive how it feels to be captivation a abiding arch and accomplishing it correctly? Wouldn’t it be abundant for the golfer to alteration that addiction to the course?
The patented PRO-HEAD 2 Trainer can do absolutely that. The golfer sets up in foreground of the PRO-HEAD 2 Trainer and adjusts a cream cylinder, at the end of an arm, to beat height. The golfer rests her/his arch adjoin the foam, applies slight burden and takes golf swings, with or after a club, while hitting assurance or not. The forehead adjoin the cream is the anchored advertence point for the golfer. Unlike the end of a club, the cream is jotter and does not waver or move. If the forehead moves in ANY direction, abroad from this anchored advertence point, the golfer gets burning concrete or blow acknowledgment on such arch movement, and during any aspect of the swing. This acknowledgment is agnate to the acknowledgment Jack Grout gave to adolescent Nicklaus.
The Exerciser/Trainer enables the golfer to exercise and accretion repetitions anywhere central or outdoors, accepted with or after a club, and hitting or not hitting balls. Through these repetitions of the beat and burning acknowledgment from the cream rubber, the golfer is anon able to authority a abiding head. This new arrangement and activity of a abiding arch is beatific to the academician and the new addiction is formed. New motor anamnesis is developed. The golfer gets the feel of a abiding arch if s/he has abstruse this new arrangement and this adapted behavior. With repetitions over time, this activity becomes abiding and benumbed to the golfer. The new addiction is built-in and can now be calmly transferred to the course.
Many golf agents are application the new PRO-HEAD 2 Trainer, which they affectionately alarm “the automated Jack Grout.” Ask your Pro if he has one. Or acquisition a banker on the Internet to buy one.
