Abstract

In his interesting and thought-provoking article, Peter Lightbrown advocates an alternative approach to teaching the golf swing based on development of what he termed the "innermost building blocks of effective movement" (p. 77) - balance, relaxation and rhythm. As acknowledged, his approach is strongly influenced by the Alexander Technique, the Feldenkrais Method, Sensory Awareness, yoga and Tai Chi, but like many approaches in science and medicine that could be described as being 'New Age' or Eastern, the supposed performance benefits afforded by his approach need to be empirically, rather than anecdotally, verified before it can be fully accepted. Only then can it challenge existing approaches to teaching the golf swing and become more commonplace in golf coaching.
