Changing everything from point A-Z, Why?

Post by coolerman » October 13th, 2010, 2:28 pm

I have told people for years ,that you can't rebuilt a whole game,just
work on the one key problem that is causing all the little issues.

And here is a statement from PBA golfer Dustin Johnson about his
game, and working with super coach Butch Harmon.

You began working with Butch in April.What was the first thing he
told you about your swing?
The first thing he said was that he wasn't going to change a lot with
my clubface even though I get it closed at the top.He said I could
change it,but that I probably wouldn't be able to play golf because
that's how I had played.my whole life.

Conclusion:You can't change everything in everybody.

Good point, but depending on the level of expertise in a bowler, you'd be surprised at the accomplishments that can occur. Coaching is very often about thinking correctly. If you think correctly, you will focus on the things that really matter. A coach can't coach your body. He can teach your brain to think correctly, focusing on what really matters. This will get tremendous results. Your mind will train your body and adapt to your mental and physical qualities. The results can be astounding. Ask to people on this site, that I've coached, about how it works. Not everything is successful every time, but the record is good to say the least. You don't know what you can do until you try. Nothing is impossible! Some things take a little longer. But, their can't be an identity crisis when you're on the approach.
