When you walk away from a golf lesson you probably want to feel like you’re “better”.
That’s the point after all… To get that swing fix so you can stop slicing the ball or hit your 7 iron just a little more solidly.
Let’s get down to it. Most people don’t improve after going to the driving range.
Why else would we call the walk from the range to the golf course is called the “longest walk in golf”. That’s why we need to work on making your practice on the driving range transfer to the golf course.
Today we’re talking all about finding your optimal challenge point that enables you to set yourself up for success during a round, and not just during practice.
We’re hearing from one of the authors of the paper on Challenge Point, Dr. Mark Guadagnoli and colleague (and college golf coach) Dr. Chris Bertram.
There are two critical factors in motivational learning that most people ignore. We’re going to address these two factors in today’s episode of Golf Science Lab.
We’re talking with two experts in the field of motor learning, Dr. Gabriele Wulf and Dr. Rebecca Lewthwaite. Both have extensive experience in this topic and have written some of the papers that have defined the field of motivational learning. You’re not going to want to miss this!
I’m sure you’ve heard of the 10,000 hour rule, but does it apply to golf? And what do you need to know about it?
Today’s guest is Performance and Sports Psychologist Dr. Bhrett McCabe who talks all about the 10,000 hour rule and gives some actionable advice on what you should be doing to better structure your training and learning.
What if tournaments and potentially “stressful” rounds of golf suddenly seemed easy? Well that’s what we’re going to talk about today with a constraint-based approach to coaching and learning.
The general tenant we’re going to talk about with Peter Arnott and Graeme McDowall is that your solution to problems are different from anyone else’s, so let the individual find a way that is fit for them to solve that problem instead of putting them in a particular position.
How do we explain great players? And what can we discover when we ask questions like, “how do PGA tour players become PGA tour players”?
We’re sitting down with two guys, Graeme McDowall and Peter Arnott, who have some interesting concepts that might explain a lot of the “luck” and “mystery” surrounding great players.
Today’s episode is all about learning and performance in golf and how this understanding should affect the way you practice and learn golf. Our two guests are Distinguished Research Professor Dr. Robert Bjork, and Adam Young, golf coach and author of The Practice Manual.
We’re answering questions like “Do we trick ourselves into thinking we’re improving, learning, and actually getting better?” and “What should we be going for in our learning environment?”. Start listening below!
