-- Did you ever stop and think about how we’ve learned to do all those countless moves, tasks, actions, and movements one might perform in just an ordinary day?
You, as I, probably don't need a degree in psychology or to study neurology to know about Left brain and Right brain activities. Even if we've just overheard or read about those terms, we know on some level it is referring to things one does consciously or unconsciously.
But think about more complex activity such as playing a musical Instrument or playing a sport. There is actually a great similarity in those 2 physical tasks. You’ve played a piece of music on the piano so many times that your fingers seem to instinctively know where to go, and play all on their own. Someone throws a ball to you and you know what it takes to catch it. No brainer!
In the sport of golf there are things that are taught and aspects of the game that simply can not
be taught! You can
be shown how to hold the club for an efficient grip.You can also learn about the so called key positions one must get to, or pass through, for the swing to be successful, plus countless increments of this motion in between those key positions, that can be conveyed to a student.
BUT THERE IS ONE ASPECT OF THIS ACTION THAT CAN NEVER BE TAUGHT, and it is, the RHYTHM & TEMPO of this action. This is where the term "feel" enters the picture, and this is ONLY EXPERIENCED
by watching and imitating THEN - EVENTUALLY FELT.
For golf there is actually a tool available that truly helps one experience and capture the elusive pure RHYTHM & TEMPO component of a great golf swing. The tool is an iPhone App called GOLFLiXPro

To recap the early ponderings of Right and Left brain activity, somewhere in all of this might be the goal that we should be striving toward, that state of No Brainia
to accomplish what seems to be a never ending quests for great skills.
