For me, golf is all about visualisation, and in seeing the shot before you, that you wish to create, and then just getting out of the way and letting it happen.
You can for instance play a draw from either an open stance, or from a closed one ...... yet all the traditional teachings tell you to do it one certain way.
This to me, is where golf instruction falls down, as you can hit pretty much any shot in various different ways.
There is more than one way to skin a cat (apologies to any cat lovers out there)
I'm sure Seve would never have been the player he was, if he went down the path of traditional teaching, instead of spending his formative years experimenting and trying everything under the sun.
Golf teaching / instruction I think, could do with a slight shift in emphasis away from the overly technical, and towards the more creative side of the game.
Are there any golf coaches out there who really spend time with their students in teaching them how to be creative?
