Why is golf so easy for some and bordering on impossible for others.?
Why do elite athletes from other sports struggle with the golf swing?
Is it because our automatic habitual movements in everyday life and in other sports don't work in hitting a golf ball. If we think 'stand' and it happens automatically, same with sit, walk, throw, punch, run, turn, hop etc. - then why not smacking a golf ball to a target? Who can argue with that concept?
Well 95% of golfers (estimated guess) try to play golf with their habitual movement patterns and struggle to progress and risk injury in the process.
Is it because we struggle to learn new movement patterns after a certain age? Or are we unwilling to go through a difficult process of learning new movements and prefer to use "will power" to adapt our existing movement patterns to play the game?
