An AMAZING opportunity arises, a visitor who has never heard of Golf volunteers to help me & all the golfers on planet Earth!
How could I resist, this was our conversation!
I have explained to the Alien the basic principles of golf, so it understands the rudiments of the game.
Now I can tell the alien what I need, and using its superior understanding of the universe, will be able to help all golfers get better!
Aliens asks . What is the prime objective in playing, 18 holes of golf?
Me To go round the 18 holes in as few shots as possible, to hit the ball as far as possible, be consistent & hit it as straight as possible.To hole putts, to have a great short game, to control my mind, to be calm under pressure, to stay focused, be in the zone, ignore my opponents!
Alien Ok Ok, calm down, I only have a limited time here on Planet Earth!
You are telling me golfers on Earth are still learning this stuff?
Me Well we have only been playing for a few hundred years!
Alien Not long then?
So to achieve this you would have to have as much control as possible over yourself, the golf ball, its direction, its power and its flight. I understand.
You would need to maximise and harness all your tools, make the machine the best you can.
Me What do you mean the machine?
Alien You, your mind and body, that is everything.
Me Yes, the machine must be as consistent and powerfull as possible.
Me Can anything destroy the machines results?
Alien Yes of course, your mind/brain could interfere, get confused, wrong advice!
Me Ok so to achieve this outcome what do I need to do ?
Alien You on Earth have heard of Back Engineering, so lets start at the end.What do you need to get the results you want. How much power do you require to hit a small ball over 300 hundred yards, work it out. How can a mere human achieve this, what muscles can you use to power this, what are the laws you are using, the physics required, its all simple stuff!
Alien Use the laws of Physics as you know them, and anatomy to build the best machine you can. Make it as simple, strong and efficient as you humans can, so it can repeat, and be more efficient.
Me Golf really is a power game, and I need to hit the ball 300 yards, with as much control as possible.
Alien To do this you need to work the machine in the most powerful way you can, which is using what you call rotation, and the old centrifugal force, making sure you move the machine in the best sequence to generate and retain power. This is done by moving the part of the machine nearest the ground first, using the ground to push against and then the next stage works transferring energy into the next segment, then the club will have more energy to impart into the golf ball as you unwind in sequence.
So you can multiply your power.
Its so obvious really! Its like the old rocket technology, fire the energy into the ground which will push the object away with greater force.
Me There are a lot of opinions & myths in my golfing world, thank you for your help.
How can I contact you again?
Alien I will contact you! Oh & when you have mastered this old stuff I will return and really show you the future!
