Chipping and putting

16/03/2012

My 2nd golf lesson yesterday – chipping to the green – this time using hips – just as in Tai Chi with some conscious adjustment needed to accommodate the mechanics of the club but basically pulling it through from the centre as one pulls a sword or ones arms in silk reeling – controlling power and body position by sensitivity of the feeling. Ultimately a case of creating an intention ( to put the ball in the hole ) and then letting the unconscious mind/body get on with it. A good example of a complex action requiring consistent perfection – achieved with mindfulness and simplification according to basic principles – very much like practicing a Tai Chi form – with instructor James providing skilled correction and an excellent example to model – good fun!
