Golf Practice - How to transfer your golf range swing to the golf course.
In this podcast Iain and Arick discuss golf practice and the retention and transfer of golfing skills. The GLT golf practice philosophy states that if you want to learn a new skill that can lead to higher performance on the golf course you must create cognitive stress as this induces learning. Adding the spacing effect, the variability effect and the correct level of challenge to your golf range practice creates cognitive stress and helps a golfer retain what they are learning. Adding context in the form of an on course golf practice, game or challenge adds context and is vital in helping a golfer adapt their learnings to the golf course environment and transfer the learned skills effectively. The higher the context and the challenge the higher the cognitive stress. Tune into this podcast to hear how to use all this in an optimal way for your students.
