Can you take your ‘Practice Game’ out there?

This really simplistic challenge or task takes disciplined planning and the proper mind-set!

Golf shots are just ‘Distance & Direction’ … “ALL” … plus a few ‘Mother Nature’ conditions.

We need to know our performance parameters. Do you actually have a ‘Current CAD Sheet’? (Calibrated Average Distance) Having a current ‘Short Game Body Clocking Grid Sheet’ is a special achievement that will make you shine … if you actually create one! If you do not commit, the notion will soon be just ‘Yesterday’s Newspaper’ and more of the ‘Same Old’!

We intuitively know there is a difference between the ‘Training & Trusting Mentality’. (‘Practicing & Playing Environments’) You should have learned to hit better shots and to play better? Enjoy every moment of that accomplishment!

How do we bridge the gap between these two elements? You know the age-old question … “How do I take my ‘Practice Swings’ out onto the course?” Easier than you think!

When we are ‘Training’ we very often are ‘Free-Wheeling’ and relaxed. Then we shift our platform from the ‘Training Area’ to the ‘On Course’ where we have four added ingredients … three competitors and a pencil with no eraser! Tension mounts!

Let’s get to the “HOW?” to make the transition.

Let’s examine this simple title first? ‘Impact Fix’ is ‘Passive, Static , Getting Ready’ to make golf swing perfection! ‘Impact’ is the ‘Active, Kinetic or Dynamic Moment Of Truth’ … the high-speed collision between the ‘Clubhead Center Of Mass’ (Sweet Spot) and the Golf Ball, which is also a ‘Object Mass’ designed to be ‘Released or Hit-Away’! You can imagine a 300+ yard Driver strike!

The “Fix” is like ‘Fixing Something to get done!’ … not too unlike getting the ‘Pie Fixins’ needed to make that cherry pie a la mode! (see ‘Components, Elements or Ingredients’)

“Impact Fix” is your amazing ‘Dress Rehearsal’. It is the process of simulating the ‘Component Conditions’ required to make the golf strike happen. Your ‘555 Team’ refers to these conditions as ‘Protocols’ involving ‘The 5 Set-Ups’ (Posture, Grip, Stance, Ball Location & Alignment’) and ‘The 5 Essential Elements’ (Clubface Aim, Clubhead Path, Clubhead Speed, Sweet Spot & Angle of attack’.)

What are our other ‘Component Conditions’ for the “Driver Impact” … Moment Of Truth?

We all have activities that “Tend To Repeat”. (see ‘Patterns & Routines’)

While involved in practice or play, be aware of your ‘Tendencies’ or trends. Weak shots (Golf Errors) happen for a reason. Thus, they will tend to repeat themselves. How many golfers ‘Tend To Hit Leaky Fades or Slices’? That trend is quickly fixable!

If you can detect a ‘Trend’ you can ‘Fix It On The Fly’ … make a small but distinct change to redirect your tendency right away. Your adjustments will usually fall in to the ‘5 Set-Up Categories’ … Posture, Grip, Stance, Ball Location & Alignment. Always keep your ‘5 Essential Elements’ in mind … Clubface Aim, Clubhead Path, Clubhead Speed, Sweet Spot & Angle Of Attack.

Think of ourselves as a ‘Golfing Mechanism’ with ‘Components & Procedures’ … a lot of Musculo - Skeletal parts as well as a furtive ‘Mind Machine’.

If these ‘Components & Procedures’ are loose or ‘In Relaxation’ (Passivity), they shall tend to have a considerable amount of ‘Variation’. In Golf, ‘Variables’ are a negative element. We must strive for ‘Consistency’ … ‘Stability’.

If one looks at a simple machine, one will usually see a conglomeration of cables, pulleys and the resulting levers. The more loosely related, the less controlling they become. A feel you might strive to accomplish is ‘Skipping Stones On A Pond’. (Think #3 Pressure Point)

One cannot replicate a really solid ‘Golf Strike’ unless and until one knows ‘Why?’ it happened in the first place!

‘How?’ … by learning and utilizing, the proven and very globally trusted ‘555 Golf System’. Repetition demands ‘Check-Listing’! Our airline discipline is perfectly suited to ‘Golf’!

‘A Suggestion?’ … practise your ‘Push Basic Putting and Chipping Procedure’ every time you frequent a golf property. You know ‘The Down & Back Drill’, right? If there is any lingering doubt, ‘JustAskUs!’ You know how to seek our ‘555 Team’ trusted support in the heat of battle!

Do you know and grasp ‘The 8 Step Putting & Chipping Pre-Shot Routine’? It is ‘Short Game Magic’ that lowers your scores!

Really a good idea!

The Target Hand & Lever CONTROLS the face of the Clubhead. The Brace Hand controls the ‘Ping Pong Paddle Face’. If the face is square to the ground and horizon, then your Brace Hand shall be as well! These components are thusly in what your ‘555 Golf Team’ refers to as ‘In A Neutral Position or Configuration’. (see ‘Turn, Vertical & Rolled’ [TVR] … Forearm Longitudinal Axis Action’)

Three options for the ‘Paddle Face’ are ‘Open, Square and Closed’ … also ‘Weak, Neutral and Strong’. The same variable circumstances apply to the ‘Golf Clubhead and Clubface Aim’. Three options for the ‘Back Of The Target Hand’ are also ‘Open, Square & Closed’.

If you enlist an ‘Open Clubface Aim’ and ‘Open or Weak Grip’ combination, you are very likely going to the ‘Weak Side Of The Target Line’. We recognize the influence of ‘Clubhead Path / Angle Of Attack’ and can discuss that more in the future. This focus is simply about ‘Grip and Clubface Aim’. One is a human agreement while the other is an equipment condition.

Do you know that reading and writing, just thinking about your golf swing and game, is the ‘Flip-Side’ of gym time? Let your golf become fresh-air relief! Golf is life’s physical mental.

Pay attention to your day … every day! Little details always matter! How can you figure a task out if you do not define it, perhaps ‘With An Attitude’? Actively set up your criteria for success! You are well served if one can grapple the ‘Probabilities Of Success’ and take them to the matt!

The right way to strike a ‘Golf Ball’ is within your reasonable reach both mentally and physically. You must keep the task carefully defined and scientifically realistic in order to avoid ‘Information Fatigue Syndrome’. You each need programmed activity rewards to grow your golf skills and pleasure. Work on one or two skills at one time … no more.

Absolutely not!

Although directly related, they are different components and perform very different functions!

Our ‘Target Swing Lever’ 1) Controls The Clubhead, 2) establishes and maintains ‘Bottom Of Swing Arc’ (BOSA) and 3) provides the #4 Pressure Point. (Pectoralis Upper Chest applying Pivot Pressure against the Biceps … Upper Target Lever – Load Coil Brace and Unload Uncoil Target)(see ALSDR … ‘The Power Line Delivery Sequence’)

The Hands - Grip, Control the Handle and thus the golf club generally.

It is this Country Gentleman Golf Teacher’s opinion that you not ‘Change Your Grip’ to a stronger position. You may be forced to change something else? (see ‘Active or Dynamic Component - Action Reaction’) How about ‘Making The Same Old Familiar Go Straight Set-Up and Execution’? Well, the ball will Curve Right due to the wind. How about making one ‘Static or Passive Set-Up change’? Don’t change your ‘Grip’. Rotate The Golf Club Handle so the Clubface Aim (CFA) is Hooded, Shut Down or Closed. Your ‘Normal Swing’ will now counter the ‘Wind Movement’. CFA is your #1 control!

Here are two categories with 5 Components each by which you can master or are mastering and enjoying ‘The 555 Golf Academy Game’. You will already know these elements to varying degrees.

  1. The 5 SET-UPS … a) Posture, b) Grip, c) Stance, d) Ball Location and e) Alignment.
