The feel golfer plays well, when they have a clear sense of one part of their body.
The feel player’s wiring is located in the brainstem cerebellum. This is an instinctual player who is naturally comfortable with executing the golf movement. This player sees the target and feels the shot in relevant parts of the body.
Use your awareness of your body to create shots. If your key trigger point is your left hand, then create shots with your awareness of your left hand when you swing toward your target. Once you get your target (a simple quick procedure for you), take your time getting comfortable, building your nest, settle in, get quiet and then hit it!
Wear comfortable clothes. Buy ultra comfortable shoes. Buy your clubs on how they feel. Comfort and body awareness is your deal.
When practicing, work on your mechanics without a target. Isolate a body part, get that part in the correct position and see what happens. Don’t be afraid of changing your awareness to another body part to experiment. For feel players, hooking the ball means your upper body is going faster than your lower body. Slicing comes from the lower body out-racing the upper half. So, you might want to focus on your right knee to shape shots. Go slower for draws and faster for fades.
The key for good play for you is getting set before you take the club back. Don’t try to visualize or work on your tempo! Use feel to play and to correct your swing errors.
Find a feel player as your instructor. Watch Fred Couples, Ernie Els.
The key to all of this is the answer to the question: HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN TO TAKE THE CLUB BACK?
The feel golfer will answer, “when I feel a stillness, quietness, a peace that tells me to go.”
