The research on Quiet Eye (QE) has been an interesting development in sport psychology in recent years. The Quiet Eye (QE) refers to the final fixation of eye movement at least 100 milliseconds prior to movement. Longer QE duration is exhibited by experts in comparison to non-experts.

We can also measure QE with tools like the Focus Band but how do we train it? Liam Mucklow has been doing his own research in his lab in Canada and found great results with a ping pong catching protocol using a ping pong robot. We use it now to increase our players’ ability to focus and also improve their hand-eye coordination.

    The joke about this place is, even though he’s talking about focus and all that, the place blasts music from the speakers so loud all day every day, even in the fitting and lesson areas, it’s hard to concentrate. The place is a joke. Bunch of yahoo wannabes work and go there and think they’re doing something special when all they do is distract you with music and other annoying things like shouting loudly over the music while standing right next to you

Shawn Clement: Dealing with injuries in your golf swing, lead side.

Published

Happy Father’s Day weekend and U.S. Open weekend at none other than Pebble Beach weekend! Whoa, cannot wait to see the golf action today!

In this video, we talk about how to deal with hip, knee and ankle injuries to your lead side as this one is PIVOTAL (pardon the pun) to the success of any kinetic chain in a human. This kinetic chain is a golf swing. Now, what most of you don’t get is that you were born with action; like a dolphin was born to swim. Just watch 2-year-olds swinging a club! You wish you had that swing and guess what, it is in there. But you keep hiding it trying to hit the ball and being careful to manipulate the club into positions that are absolutely, positively sure to snuff out this action.

Getting your kids started in golf: How to grip the golf club

Published

on

In this video, Tyler Wong, PGA Director of Player Development at NW Golf Academy at Sah-Hah-Lee Golf Course in Clackamas, Oregon, talks how kids should grip the golf club.

How kids grab the club is almost always naturally inconsistent. Don’t worry about it! They don’t need to have a perfect grip to hit good shots. Hockey style, cross-hand, and other variations of the golf grip are common for kids.

Most of the time, I just want to get the hands together on the handle. I like to use the phrase “squish the fingers,” which means get the trail hand fingers mashed together against the lead hand. If they interlock, overlap or do something else, don’t worry.

Remember the goal is to get the ball airborne and forward! Worry about the grip later!
