Do I have your Attention?

 

If you have ever witnessed a Tiger hunting its prey, you will have marvelled at its ability to focus its attention. It is fortunate for it can keep its eyes locked on its Target. Golf presents its players with a much greater challenge which takes you beyond the eyes and into your brain...

Some Food For Thought...

Are you SEEING your targets or just LOOKING at them?

    Below is a scientific explanation of how the physical visual system works, highlighting how information is presented to the occipital region of the brain. What is NOT explained is how the information delivered from the eye to the brain becomes the focus of your ATTENTION. We continually process information NON-consciously whilst awake (this is how we navigate through life) so how do we determine from all this visual information what to attend to and what we can simply leave to awareness?

    The next stage in visual processing within the brain is ulitmately the difference betweeen LOOKING and SEEING (or awareness and attention). Whilst these words retain your attention you are seeing but your eyes are just the start of the process.


    Genius

    Can you spot the SIGNIFICANT error presented by scientific literature in the image above? The brain does not present images as shown in the head, there is nothing but neuronal activity within the brain. Billions of neurons firing in total darkness inside the skull. There is NO projection of images anywhere within the brain or even a crumpled screen. Neuroscience ingeniously analyses neuronal firing but then mistakes subjective interpretation of the data as brain imagery. So how do you SEE objects, lkie tehse wrdos witretn icnerroclty correctly and how do they become the focus of your attention? This short, good video explains how we process light photos but finishes before the act of SEEING is explained which highlights why I created TOG.


    Understanding HOW to SEE your target, whilst looking at the ball, IS the challenge of the game of golf. The target is often lost due to many erroneous thoughts about the swing, ball or un/desirable outcomes in the SECONDS prior to or during execution. Attentional focus is frequently OFF target and inconsistent outcomes are the result. Many golfers will think poor "technique", resulting in confused and frustrated lifetimes mistakenly attempting to resolve the SYMPTOMS of poor attentional focus.

    Target Oriented Coaching uniquely explains the critical difference between looking at and seeing a Target. This is an essential mental skill for any target oriented sports person striving to improve their attentional focus, especially those who have to look away from their target prior to execution of the task (like swinging a golf club).
