Transform Your Golf Game is a 30 day Home Study Program introducing golfers to the Alcero Method of golf instruction by it's creator, Al Owens
This home study program is packed with information and daily lessons golfers complete from the comfort of their home, the practice range or the golf course.
This 30 Boot Camp is not for the faint at golf. It is specifically loaded with 130 pages of Daily Alcero Method Activities and Daily Visualization and Creative Techniques to improve your golf game.
As I constantly state; “You are the creator of your game, never the victim”.
With this in mind, this book is set to create a better game for you. It will take time and commitment on your part.
This workbook and The Alcero Method is the most effective way to improve your golf game without a golf instructor in front of you! It is not difficult but it does requires dedicated effort on your part in order for you to see the results you desire. However desire is what it is all about and you would not be reading this if you did not have the desire to change.
Visualization and Daily Creative Technique
It is day 6 and today we will take our creative technique to the actual practice range! This home study workshop is broken up into 30 days and it is not likely that the day I suggest you are at the course or the range is going to match with your personal or business schedule.
Because of this and your personal agenda, you may not finish this in exactly 30 days. That is fine, the program is divided-up to allow you freedom to arrive at the course or range at your convenience.
The actual time it takes to finish the program may take 45 actual days. Not a problem. Remember to keep in there and moving forward, and don’t put this workbook on the closet shelf as I mentioned earlier. Keep it out so you can see it, so if you do miss a day, you still see it and remember to stay with the program and continue to commit to improving your golf game.
Ok, today we are going to do a simple exercise at the practice range. If you happen to be playing today instead and can’t practice at the range, that is fine. This exercise can work at either destination.
To take your new beliefs that you should have accumulated about your golf game and put them to the test it is necessary for you to “get out of your box”.
Today I want you to try some new shots when you play. When at the range after you are warmed up and comfortable with some shots I want you to locate a target and identify what club you would normally hit to that target.
Once you have determined that club, DO NOT USE IT! That is right, I don’t want you to use it. I want you to pick two or three other clubs that you feel you might be able to use in order to get the ball to your intended target.
We all have our comfort zones with clubs we believe are the best solution for each shot. However if you have not been exposed to the other shot options, how do you know they will not work?
Your limiting beliefs may have you restricted into thinking that your 115 yard shot can only be hit with your 9 iron. How do you know that is the best option?
Today get out of your box and try possibly an 8 iron or seven. Maybe a pitching wedge is your favorite club and that is another option. The point here is multiple, and I want you to consider the following when doing this exercise:
• Try to really feel the ground underneath your feet as you take your address with each club.
• As you swing each club make a smooth swing with each shot. Pay particular attention here to the pace, tempo and your balance. Try to find a repeating smooth swing no matter what club you choose (the tendency here is to swing too hard for shorter clubs and too easy for longer ones – focus on your tempo with all your choices).
• Feel your emotions and identify what they are as you choose different clubs. Some may cause you great anxiety and fear and others you may notice a real calming feeling as you select it to hit.
• Notice your results and make mental notes about how you did. You may discover new shots you did not have before.
With the shots you make today pay particular attention to your feelings and emotions about each club you choose. There is no right or wrong way to do this.
However just as we used the visualization techniques without hitting the ball, today we are being enlightened to our actual feelings and emotions and we need to take note of them when we do hit a ball.
Observing how you perceive shots is also important here and if you have fear or doubt about using a different club, that is fine.
As you feel that fear and doubt it will assist you in noticing it again when you play and that will improve your approach and method you make towards each shot you wish to create.
