Perception and Reality – What you feel and what is are not the same!

When students see their golf swings on video for the first time, they are always amazed at how different their swings look from how their swings felt!  

That is because there are perception and reality!  We perceive things differently from how things actually are.  To overcome that, you need feedback.  Feedback can be in the form of a second pair of eyes.  Someone can tell you whether you are moving your head or not.  Feedback can be in the form of your divot.  The back edge will give you clubface angle, and direction will give you clubhead path.  Then there is the feedback from a teaching aid.  I have always felt that it was the most powerful.  Here Sam from Eyeline Golf tells us how the 360-degree mirror can help you understand that reality on the range.
 
Have you thought about how difficult it is to accurately describe with words, how you want your students to move?  It seems to require a communication ninja!
 
Picture = 1000 words.  The 360 Mirror is your wordsmith weapon.
Perception and Reality - Learn the difference!
 
Let them see themselves at the top of their swing in the mirror, and then hit a ball 2 seconds later – without ever coming out of posture.  Look, repeat, look, repeat … faster than a camera!
 
Bring your dry erase marker to the range or putting green.  Mark the mirror where you want their attention.
 
Give them one to take to their practice session (or let them buy one), and every swing will have a purpose.
          Check out the link below to see the 360 Mirror in action!

I’ve used it, seen it in action, and will recommend it to my friends!  Sure, I may be a little biased, but it truly is a great tool 🙂
