My Best Golf Lesson with GravityFit

When I was 13 years old, I was fortunate enough to attend the Adidas Predator Kicking School. This was a camp hosted by world renowned performance coach, Dr. Dave Alred, and was designed to give budding rugby players the chance to evolve their goal kicking skills.
I recall this was the first time my goal kicking motion had ever been filmed during my 6 years of playing rugby (quite the contrast to how golf is coached.) During the feedback session with Dr. Alred, of the 12 frames that were captured on the camera and presented to me, 11 were said to be technically sound, and I was rapidly thrust to apply my exceptional technique in situations that were way more demanding than real-time game play.
At 36 years old, when I receive golf coaching, my experience is quite different than the one detailed above. When a coach provides feedback on my golf swing, I am told that my posture at address is too bent over, my arms get lifted and deep on the back swing, over active in transition and all this leads to an adverse effect on my sequence. I also early extend and do not rotate enough at impact! Wow, mind blown!
After receiving a golf lesson, I would often reflect on my time playing rugby and ask myself why I had such a good understanding of where my body was in time and space when I kicked a rugby ball vs the lack of understanding I have when I swing a golf club. Is there anyone or anything that can help provide feedback of what my golf swing should feel like? I want to experience the mind body connection in golf that I felt as a junior and college rugby kicker.
