So like many of us i am using this time to plan and write programmes for when training resumes again. I am sure many of you are familiar with the work of MacNamara, Button and Collins and their work on PCDE's in sport. How are may be developing t...
Where do I start? How deep shall I go with this? May as well lay as much as I can remember all out there. What we are trying to do on this forum is promote a platform for all to share and learn without judgement. In order to do that we too have...
Here's a thread if anyone wants to explore further any of Stuart and Ed's discussions with Pete, cheers Graeme...
Good morning everyone, I've opened up this thread if any one wants to discuss any of the information,content, issues etc raised in Ian and Marks discussion cheers graeme...
So I’m going to throw this out there for discussion.... My question comes from my on course observations of groups of players over a period of time. Some players look technically competent to the eye and score poorly and others who look less techn...
I mentioned a while back about this and now more than ever it seems relevant. Imagine if we had a unified e-sport platform for golf. Zwift.com comes to mind in cycling (and running) which has over 1.1 million users who train, compete etc on daily bas...
Hey Everybody, In need of a bit of help here with all the coronavirus closures. In the part of Canada I am in the courses won't open until at least may - and it's possible that's delayed now - nobody really knows. What my coaching partner and...
I was getting back into the lecture material and came across this slide again. It stimulated some reflection on my part. It's winter here in Canada and my brother and I have this winter long game going for simulator golf on the GC Quad, we play...
2 SHOT GAME & JACOB'S LADDER Just wanted to provide some feedback from 2 games I've tried with our team. 9 Players, all about a 0 or better handicap, 3 players specifically are ranked inside the top 600 in WAGR. 2 SHOT GAME: Created incre...
Hi Everyone It’s probably inevitable that the people we work with will end up hitting balls on the range in some shape or form. Given this what ideas do we all have on “range hygiene” to keep the sessions appropriate and avoid the rake hit feedba...
At our Club we have a pretty popular "Learn to Golf" membership category that lasts for two years (as if the learning part is done in after that haha). This winter I've been experimenting with some ways to help these golfers with full swing...
The non-variable nature of driving ranges has come up a few times during this course. I've been thinking of a sort of 80/20 solution (i.e. not perfect, but perhaps a big step in the right direction): I've attached a picture of a gymnastics "i...
Hello all, A question a little of basis within this group perhaps however one i’d be interested in hearing the groups experiences of. I have yet to see an improvement in how a player moves alongside any measurable marker (except club head speed) ...
As I understand it, what OTEC is doing is based on a combination of ideas, perspectives, disciplines and so on. My simplistic view is something like: ecological psychology and dynamic systems theory led to: ecological dynamics and: non-...
I'm guessing that most everyone here enjoys practicing. But that's unusual. I'll claim it's more fun to be a 27 handicapper than a 36. And more fun to be an 18 than a 27. More fun to be a 12 than an 18, and so on. I'll also claim that - even wi...
I''m looking forward Gordon Morrison's Webinar follow up to his Otec-talk on Working with the Yips in Golf. I've got a bunch of questions for Gordon such as: any patterns of incidents or events that seem trigger them when people first experienc...
Would it be more helpful to move away from the idea of block v random practice discussions and replace with discussions around more or less representative practice design? I think the language and label might help shift the cognitions, intentions...
Hi Everyone In a CLA does a coach step back and let the environment or constraints created solely shape movement and behaviour ? Or will a coach continue to aid and help the student throughout the process ? Interested in what folk think on th...
As always, let me know if I'm jumping the gun here! My focus is to help players get to an ~18 handicap. Using CLA for short game practice - while certainly not trivial - seems easier to grasp than using CLA for tee to "~green" practice. ...
A couple of approaches I'm experimenting with in relation to the full swing: 1 - find ways to increase sensory input during the setup phase 2 - limit yourself to only one swing thought, and make it an external focus So far so good, or am I alr...
