“Common sense is the knack of seeing things as they are, and doing things as they ought to be done”.

To play good golf it is important to first understand why you continue to not do so. Otherwise you will most probably be inclined to keep making the same mistakes.


If what you’ve been doing isn’t working it’s reasonable to think you must be working incorrectly, and to continue doing so would be unwise.


While BAD GOLF may be normal, it is not at all natural. To say that bad golf is natural would be to say that the human system is geared to fail. IT IS NOT. It is naturally geared to succeed, so in fact bad golf is very unnatural.


So if GOD GOLF is natural, why don’t you play it more often?


Simply because you don’t use your natural resources and abilities. Generally because they have been trained out of you.


You are so busy trying to fit into the idea of a perfect swing you misuse the limitless potential you possess.


It’s sitting there, waiting to be discovered and used, why not learn to make the most of it?


 But what about technique I hear you say? Surely you must have some form of technique in your swing.

That’s correct, so let’s look at true technique and where it comes from.


Nature is technical, it is technically sound, and it’s going to work whether you like it or not.

So you now have a choice whether to work with it, or work against it.


If you work with it you are in flow with yourself and can use your resources correctly and effectively. When you choose to do otherwise, which is what happens most often with the majority of golfers, you create resistance to natural flow. Things cannot operate as they were design to because you are in conflict with yourself and this sets up a never win situation.

This is why your swing usually feels not quite right and uncomfortable, and regardless of how much practice you do, never gives you a sustainable quality result.


And when it doesn’t work you add another unnatural component and create even more conflict.


Hence your swing always seems broken and you are in a constant state of trying to fix it.


The irony is that every time you try and fix it, you carry the initial problem with you and just add to it.




When you learned to ride a bike, what you did was acknowledge and tap into a natural resource, BALANCE.

You accepted it and worked with it. Sure there was the wobbles while we were trying to do it properly, but when we realised balance and stopped trying, it worked perfectly. And when it did that, IT NEVER NEEDED FIXING.


This was the same with learning to swim, ski, drive a car, play a musical instrument, to name but a few.

Sure there was refinement, but never continual fixing.




You were no longer in conflict, no longer in a state of non resistance, and it became easy.

So why should golf be different from anything else?

Correct technique in golf is important, and if built on natural foundations will be rewarding and sustainable, like riding a bike.

If built on an unnatural base it lacks initial structure and will continually fail and always need fixing.


You would be quite surprised just how powerful you naturally are.




“When you get rid of everything you are not, what is left is what you are, and that is enough”.
