AWAKEN YOUR INNER GOLFER: Finding Your Flow by Jerry Brown
An Approach to Golfing That Can Teach Us to Sync Our Mind with Our Body!
By: Keep It Simple Golf Media
Awaken Your Inner Golfer guides readers through 40 instinct-awakening golf exercises with variations in grip, swing, stance, use of subtle senses and imagination to discover the feel of a golf swing that works for your unique physiology. The exercises facilitate an awakening of the instinctive kinesthetic intelligence within each golfer and present an opportunity to learn the feel of an effective swing through trial and error, exploration and discovery in a safe environment where "mistakes" are experienced only in the context of learning. This self-discovery tends to have a greater permanence in the body/mind, and is the same process a child instinctively uses to learn any physical motor skill. This approach is not intended to replace conventional mechanical golf instruction but to present tools for learning beyond conventional golf instruction that are not often recognized or utilized.
Brown believes most swing flaws are not an issue of incorrect mechanics, but a result of the body's compensations for a grip and posture that work in opposition to natural instincts. Awaken Your Inner Golfer provides guidelines and illustrations to establish effective foundations of grip and posture that are necessary to access instinctive kinesthetic intelligence.
The playful process of exploring the exercises to awaken instinct facilitates trust in one's innate ability to play golf more from subconscious instincts than from your thinking mind. The simplicity of this approach might be the answer to the complexity of traditional golf instruction. The practices of visualization, imagination, mindfulness, and self-awareness to quiet the thinking mind and engage the physical body to also offers the potential for these processes to naturally flow into one's daily personal life.
