Can Tempo Training Improve Your Golf Shot Accuracy

I recently studied a research paper with the subject of improving golf shot accuracy through tempo and rhythm training. Seems like it makes sense as those of you who have studied with me have incorporated rhythmic tempo for putting distance control (triplets). The study is titled “Improved Motor-Timing: Effects of Synchronized Metro-Nome Training on Golf […]


Center of Mass Golf Club Toss

Physics, mechanics, etc…can play havoc with our golf game if we think about it while we play, but it happens behind the scenes during every shot. Lately I’ve been seeing golfers actively raise the handle of the club at impact. Another example of the handle raise is Foresight club data when the club face displays […]


Putter Grip and Face Rotation Experiment

October 2015 I studied the putter face aiming data of 43 golfers, and plotted the aim point of each on a target board. The putts were all ten feet long with an accuracy goal of one degree; 2.09 inches from center. One of the biggest miss factors in putting, other than an aim bias, is […]


I Think I’ll Make This Putt

When we practice our game we grasp at every straw we can to improve: watch videos, beat balls for hours, putt balls arranged in a circle, go to the gym, listen to any tip from anyone, but the one thing that matters most we rarely try to improve; the brain. Our brain is the single […]


anxiety and DUCK, DUCK, GOOSE

Duck, duck, goose is a game, a pretty simple game (if you’re a kid and more mobile than most golfers). It doesn’t appear to create severe anxiety or many negative emotions, in fact, it looks like fun. Fun will make us happy, grateful, and just plain in love with our game. Duck, duck, goose has […]


APN1

I just learned of the passing of Arnold Palmer. This is a long story, but I’ll cut it short. We both grew up in Western Pennsylvania, and he is the absolute sole reason I’m where I am today. In 1985 I played golf fairly well (lie), but my real job was being an instructor in the best […]


BodiTrak Wall Drill

Skill training in ‘clusters’ is proven to be an effective way to learn an entire motion like the golf swing. Most new golfers I see swinging the club are using force from the hands, arms, shoulders…upper body in general. Good start if the upper body had the only power function in a shot, but the […]


Hitting It Thin/Fat? Could be your pressure!

After using BodiTrak Center of Pressure technology for the past 18 months I’ve learned a tremendous amount related to where the best players use ground forces and pressure to accomplish their ‘perfect’ golf shots. Thanks to a number of colleagues we have pressure traces available from some of the best golfers in the world. What […]


BodiTrak Pro Tour

Two weeks ago I had the good fortune to meet with BodiTrak VP and guru, Terry Hashimoto in Palm Desert, California. After an epicurean dinner Friday evening we started Saturday with an overview of the new BodiTrak Tour wireless COP mat. The new blue mat integrates with PC computers as usual, but now integrates with […]
