The Special Case- I think I'm special, therefore I don't need to practice and change my game… but I still expect to improve

I think that every person has hidden potential within. So to some degree everyone is special. In saying that, some golfers are close to delusional with their own evaluation of their talents or learning capabilities.

Improving at golf is possible. With the right information and guidance anything is possible. However, you MUST be prepared to make changes and do some practice.

Some people will say to me, “Cameron, your system doesn’t work…I haven’t improved at all”. This is fine with me, I take no offence but usually I like to dig a little deeper. This helps me improve my understanding and ultimately my golf learning system.

When I’m in the mood, I’ll ask a few simple questions like;

“Have you read the entire program?”
“Have you learned to automate your golf game?”
“Have you managed to practice any of the concepts yet?”
“Have you played a minimum of three rounds with your natural swing?”
“Have you tried anything new at all?”

In most cases the answer to all is NO. I haven’t done any of that.

You can probably imagine my response. My clean version goes like this;

“You are not special. If you want to improve and get better you MUST follow the system. It works! Simply reading a few pages from a program or website does not guarantee you’ll get better. You are not special, follow the bloody system and then come back and talk to me!”

Many golfers expect miracles. I no longer think miracles exist, especially when it comes to learning a better golf game. I am happy to help any golfer improve his play. I feel I have gone the extra mile by providing so much free info on this site. But please don’t contact me and tell me this doesn’t work when you haven’t tried anything.

We all like to think we’re special when it comes to learning, but we’re not. The special people are the young ones. They are learning machines. Once we get to adulthood we lose the ability to learn properly…we think too much and stuff it up. My goal is to restore the child within you, and let you start playing the kind of golf you know you can…but please please please, follow the system!

    Dear Cameron
    My wife thinks ive lost the plot!!!!!!
    I was in the bedroom putting as usual and saying to myself
    one two three four five once I caught a fish alive
    six seven eight nine ten ( tap)then i let it go again.(lol)
    saying this as i fluidly putted 18 golf balls again and again nearly perfectly each time coupled with your great and totally common sense advice about using the hands to swing the putter back .
    would you use a pendulum swing to throw a tennis ball forward.
    what twits we are us hackers ( well meaning twits but twits nevertheless)
    I know that next time i play a round of golf i will play really well because i will have no problem in letting go my concious mind and will be singing my rhyme to myself as i swing . i have tried everything there is to try in golf,hurt my back, got blisters come home completely exhausted mentally and physically tried more golf positions than the Karma Sutra has and have got nowhere .Time to let go
    Well done to your site and your way of thinking I know its absolutely spot on. I was watching my golf putting video with Bob Rotella and david toms and they too are on the same wavelength as you oh and now me lol.
    I play off 14 and know i can play off scratch if i let go
    I will keep you informed as to my progress
    Many thanks Tim Hayes

    Learning is mainly about making mistakes and fixing them. If you’re hitting a slice, try to hit a hook. Vice versa. Though golf isn’t exact, you’ll still mishit some shots of course, but trying to fix them is a problem. Bad shots are part of the fun of the game. You get to see if you can recover from your mistake. Once again, learning takes time. In my first round I shot 68 for 9 holes. Now I can consistently shoot near 48. Still not great golf, but its an improvement.
