Holding on for dear life part 2

Now what does this mean to a learnt skill, why did I freeze the degrees of freedom when I have been driving for over 20 years? (please click here if you have not read part 1)

Stress or an environment that gives me an uncomfortable feel.

I was overly concerned for my family’s wellbeing and trying to over control my movements (unconsciously).

This is one example of what I see golfers do when on the golf course, when faced with a situation that they don't feel entirely comfortable with.

I've got my new shoes on - Function vs Form

Having just returned from holiday, I have a few stories that you might able to relate to in with regards to your own golfing experiences.

Most of the time from someone whom has a fairly well learnt skill (hitting a golf ball) and trying to over control their movement with a complex set of rules.

Too many swing thoughts for example.

This can be a result of either over coaching or listening to too much information from media sources and friends.
