Speaker 0 00:00:00 Hi there and welcome to the proper golfing podcast on Joe Cameron. And this is Julia Mela. Hi, how are you

Speaker 1 00:00:06 Really good today? Really good. Yeah. Been outside all day. So all

Speaker 0 00:00:10 Good.

Speaker 1 00:00:11 Nearly

Speaker 0 00:00:12 No purple anymore. You're perfect. Didn't mean, how are you? I mean, how are you? How are you today? You were right. Yeah, I'm good. Anyway, welcome to our podcast. Hope you're doing well. Um, coming up today as usual, we've got a quick Roundup of the news. That's going on the golfing world. Uh, we've got the special topic of the day, which is, um, that

Speaker 1 00:00:32 Comfort zone.

Speaker 0 00:00:33 Yes. We've got a lot to say about comfort zones.

Speaker 1 00:00:36 Got quite a bit so bad.

Speaker 0 00:00:38 Um, tip of the day is manners magic moments.

Speaker 1 00:00:40 I've got a great tip

Speaker 0 00:00:42 And which I don't know what it is and you don't know what mine is. And then we've got Joe's little gems. That's my little tip that I know about. And you don't know.

Speaker 1 00:00:49 Yes, absolutely.

Speaker 0 00:00:50 Um, and then it's the special part of the show that, you know, love called guests. The holy one, You failed dismally last week. Did you? You did. So here's the thing that I'm not going to give you the result till next week. Yeah, 1%. And I'm not going to tell you what the answer is. No, you've got to find out last week. So you failed dismally. So I have reconfirmed the course is that you T you record that, you know, a lot about these courses. So there were a little bit put the glasses on Wentworth, The Belfry Palm beach country club and go. Cool. So those are the four courses that you give to me. So I randomly selected a whole. So coming up at the end of the show, it's going to be test to see how good you are. You're always still at,

Speaker 1 00:01:41 Please be the proper picture and not the cartoon

Speaker 0 00:01:44 One in 10 laws per picture last week. But anyway, and then we've also got another new feature, which you don't know about To do with these. Right.

Speaker 1 00:01:55 All right. Okay.

Speaker 0 00:01:56 Have you got any idea what that's about?

Speaker 1 00:01:58 Nope.

Speaker 0 00:01:59 Well, I'll know you like your chocolate Chocolate, right? So 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 in that. So I'm going to give you a word, random word related to golf, And I'm going to see how many times you can get it in the podcast. So I want to start off with an easy one. Why she Thought it was a really easy one. However, I've just realized the word, the word degree, right? I was in agree, but I've just realized the problem is you could have, like I said, that's probably not. So you might go, if I said to you, what color is that over there? And you don't know?

Speaker 1 00:02:39 Well, it could be brown,

Speaker 0 00:02:41 But that's my point. That's my point. So that could fail at the first hurdle as well. Let's see. That's no, that's twice already, but you can't just say it now. You can't just say it like green, green, green, green, green. You've got to get it in a normal conversation. Right. So if you get, what would they have never gotten there? So it's on matter as well.

Speaker 1 00:03:01 Been golfing on the green

Speaker 0 00:03:06 That doesn't count either. We're not starting to score. Yeah. Right. Okay. So the word screen, and you've got to get in a normal, conversational context. Yeah. You can't just shout it out. Those are the rules. I'm the judge and jewelry. My law is falling off,

Speaker 1 00:03:17 But these, these guys gotta tell me if I win.

Speaker 0 00:03:21 Well, anyway, I wouldn't last week at the home anyway, let's crack up. Right? So what's going on in the golf world then this week,

Speaker 1 00:03:28 This week coming up is the TPC Sawgrass, which is a phenomenal tournament. Lots of fantastic golfers playing in it. A couple of who aren't because they've had a little baby ones, had a little baby, which is nice. Uh, but the 17th, I said, I'm not sleeping for awhile. Um, but the 17th iconic whole, uh, island green, not overly long, uh, not overly long, but just causes so much. Uh,

Speaker 0 00:04:02 Who's playing who's the famous, the who's who's played that whole, it stands out then

Speaker 1 00:04:06 Loads. There's been a, well, a moment, a great moment. Fred couples playing the whole, hit it in the water, had to drop in the zone and then hold it for a par. Yeah, that was iconic. And then tiger woods. Massive put the hold on there. That was a, a weird breaking put. That was just amazing. Um, so many balls got to the edge fallen in, or just not quite gone in some people that to hit the ball, hit the ball with the toe of the Putin because of the its lines, the flight. So it just, the brilliant, brilliant golf balls, not overly long. Um, but just fabulous to watch

Speaker 0 00:04:39 The whole

Speaker 1 00:04:40 I'll be all over that. I think, I think everybody would know that one joke. So don't, don't use the 17 sort of dress.

Speaker 0 00:04:47 So that'll be on Sunday, then

Speaker 1 00:04:55 I'll dip in and out. I would say,

Speaker 0 00:04:57 Do you know what I wish you could remember to do a lot jobs around the house as well as you could remember the 17th hole Anyway, just say typical golfers and it remembers everything there is to know about golf and nothing about anything important. Sorry. I didn't mean that I was only joking, joking. Get me into a, find a way for millions of golfers out there. Um, got Elsa. Oh, run counter to the 7th of April or something in some of the way for that.

Speaker 1 00:05:23 Well, thankfully in the UK, it's not on tele till later on in the evening. So we get all our stuff done in the morning or in the daytime and then watching you, but it's all gusta. Isn't it? The musters That would be again, Somebody watching this must take us, but I'm happy to watch it on telly. If we don't actually get over,

Speaker 0 00:05:45 I stay up late at night. Isn't it? Yeah, yeah.

Speaker 1 00:05:48 Yeah. He'll be gone, but I'll be, I'll be wide awake.

Speaker 0 00:05:51 I'd love to be able to sit and sit and say that I've sat and watched all the golf, but anyway, um, anyway, so Roundup or the golf. Um, so we're on countdown then just over four weeks. Awesome. Okay. Um, so the topic of the day is, oh, before we go into the topic of the day, um, hopefully you will have noticed because I know you're very, very observant you guys out there that we've got our new logo top song. Um, so

Speaker 1 00:06:22 We

Speaker 0 00:06:22 Must say a big thank you to the lady. And by the way, we have no kickback or anything on this at all. Um, my name's Tracy took it and she's, uh, I think I've got that, um, basically limited as far embroiders she's done an absolutely top dog has done an absolutely top job. So thanks, Tracy. Um, on doing the Broadway. Very nice to, um, she did though. Get your name wrong and you are, you have been called a few things. You've got loving called Justine.

Speaker 1 00:06:52 Jeremy. Adrian was quite a popular one, but I think she's definitely taken the biscuit. I suppose. It sounds a bit like Julian

Speaker 0 00:07:03 Just to was my favorite, but she did call me

Speaker 1 00:07:05 Jeff A. Little Bit like a Jeff,

Speaker 0 00:07:11 No offense to anybody called Jeff Allen. I mean, let's face it. She

Speaker 1 00:07:14 Called me Jeff in the email, but then she called me. I was involved to say Julian, but anyway, She still

Speaker 0 00:07:27 Thinks I'm cool. Jeff,

Speaker 1 00:07:30 Not Jeffrey surely, but Hey,

Speaker 0 00:07:35 I've been called a lot worse. Absolutely but anyway, um, hats off to the new embroidery welding for that. So what's next, Jeff, Especially this topic is important in it.

Speaker 1 00:07:50 Yeah, it is. And this bit is serious. Um, it's to do with your comfort zone. So what a lot of people end up in, uh, in their comfort zone, which really is keeping them where they are. Uh, and a lot of people will never progress if they stay in their comfort zone. So I've got this written out and it would be totally incorrect for me to I've lived this, uh, cause there's a few different bits on it. But what I want to do is just read the very first bit out, uh, because it's super important. So what is the comfort zone is a place where we live that doesn't cause stress, anxiety and stops us overthinking the comfort zones or habits of action and habits of thinking comfort zones are a safe place to be stepping out of your comfort zone makes us feel uncomfortable and powerful, powerful words. So I've done a lot of research the last few days to do with comfort zones. And are they good? Are they bad? If they're bad, what can we do about it? Ultimately, bad news is comfort zones will send you backwards. Eventually they'll send you backwards

Speaker 0 00:09:04 Because you're not growing.

Speaker 1 00:09:06 You're not growing. You're not evolving. You're not, uh, doing the right things that can at least keep you where you are. But, uh, the worst thing is going backwards. Isn't it in life, you know? And the thing is a comfort zone. This is not just to do with golf. This is to do with loans.

Speaker 0 00:09:21 But I think the thing is the pit you picked up on the keyword there uncomfortable. Yeah. So when you go outside your comfort zone, you feel uncomfortable, which makes you want to retract. It doesn't mean to say that uncomfortable is wrong. It's just uncomfortable.

Speaker 1 00:09:35 Just different.

Speaker 0 00:09:36 Yeah. Just different.

Speaker 1 00:09:38 Yeah. So the first and most important thing is you have to create a reason why you want to change, which could be, I want to lose some weight. It could be, I want to stop drinking. So you have to create the reason first. Then you have to figure out how to do it. Okay. Now there's another, uh, stat in here. Let me just find this little stat, um, which again, through scientific research, not just me saying it, an interesting step for us, we work at 20% of what we're capable of 80% of the time, which means that we've got eight, 2% more capacity than we actually work on, which is quite a scary number.

Speaker 0 00:10:24 So that that's a, that's a well-known um, little number, the 80, 20 it's called burrito's law. So there's 80% more capacity that we could get out of ourselves. Yeah. Yes. Wonderful. To say 100%, but you know what I'm saying?

Speaker 1 00:10:39 Yeah, absolutely. And I think that's quite astonishing to think what we're actually capable of. Once we apply our mind and let's think of this, uh, you, you live achieve something in life. You have, I have you guys watching this will ever achieve something in life. I guarantee that you put a lot of concentration. Crohn's a concentrated effort into achieving that goal. It might have been, uh, getting a degree or it could be passing your driving test, whatever it will be. But you've put a lot of focus into that. And then you'll eventually achieve that goal that you've set yourself out to be. But that requires the brains round, really kicking in at that 80%. It's really working for you. Not against you when we sit back and we feel comfortable after that, that's when we can start to go backwards. That's what's scary.

Speaker 0 00:11:26 Can we demonstrate, can I give you a demonstration? A live demonstration?

Speaker 1 00:11:29 Okay.

Speaker 0 00:11:30 So thinking about that, I crossed them over like that now I dunno. Cause I'm a bit stretchy on think so if you go like that, twist them in. Well, we'll do it. How

Speaker 1 00:11:42 I'm already

Speaker 0 00:11:43 See, I was just put hand cream on. So I'm going to slip my hand towards the pig. So, well,

Speaker 1 00:11:47 Well

Speaker 0 00:11:48 Ha here's the thing. So before you get to your point and that's your comfort zone it. Yeah. Let's take a breath in and breathe out. Stretch a bit further. I'll stretch. No breathe. That's your false in breathe. Okay. You're home, but you're pushing it too far. So if you breathe and you stretch, right, that's your right. Your comfort zone. No, you push it too far. Now what you need to do, right? You're compensated. You're stretched. Got to be out of it. So you want to come back in now, this is my point. You want to come back in now you're back in your comfort zone.

Speaker 1 00:12:20 Well, I do, but I'm trying to go past it, but I think my arms will actually break if I do that one. So put your arms down. I would.

Speaker 0 00:12:26 But what I'm saying is when you, when you do a stretch like that, you reached the edge and you go, oh, I don't like this. You want to come back here. So if you gently, which is what you've just said, gently focus, your thought apply a bit of effort. I can't do it. Cause I've just got home clean up, um, apply a bit of effort. You stretch gently outside your comfort zone. So you can try that at home because you got all that. You go like that. And then you twist your hand and say, I've got hand cream on, but you can make it eventually get to that.

Speaker 1 00:12:51 Yeah. That's a bit ridiculous that you can do that. Having said that though, to be fair.

Speaker 0 00:12:55 Yeah. Don't hurt yourself, but don't stop. It's just a fairly physical way of understanding what it means to be in your comfort zone.

Speaker 1 00:13:00 Yeah. And, and to be fair, you do a lot of yoga every day. So you're going to be a little bit more stretched to the night, but that you could really feel that. Yeah, it really hurt, but I could go a little bit more, but my brain's going now.

Speaker 0 00:13:12 I mean about being 80% or available, that's very physical demonstration of where 80% is more available. Isn't it? Because if you're, if you can do it and you can get to that 80, 80% to get to that.

Speaker 1 00:13:24 Well, yeah. Yeah. It's incredible. So, um, what I've got here again and forgive me for reading this out, but I just wanted to get it. Absolutely correct. Is four signs that you play in, in your comfort zone. Okay. First off you will feel nervous, anxious and afraid When you're in your comfort zone, you'll feel nervous, anxious and afraid. Okay. Uh, you will lose confidence, Which is ironic and you will play defensively and protect your score. What you see so many times

Speaker 1 00:14:01 You focus moves to not making mistakes. So you focus on not making mistakes rather than making mistakes. So you try not to make them, which means that you're in your comfort zone. I don't want to make a mistake, but actually this is what, what is keeping you in your comfort zone? And there is a cure. Thank God for that. And again, I'm going to read, read these off here, but again, they're really important. Um, when we, uh, when we're in our comfort zone, when we start protecting the score, we generally focus on the end result. So we want to, you might be playing five on the handicap. Oh, this is going to be the best round ever. And then the last you shoot a triple, quadruple bug in union one or 2, 1, 2, or even finish on your normal score. And the way to get over that is first off, play the shot as though it's the first shot that you hit at the day.

Speaker 0 00:15:01 Yeah. So good. Is he playing? He shot each shot as it,

Speaker 1 00:15:06 The first shot because you don't know what's going to happen. You're not three or four. Rhonda. You're just playing that first one. So that is a real, it's a skill to do these things. Uh, but with practice, practice, you're going to get better at it. Yeah.

Speaker 0 00:15:21 Did you know all, I thought that you ever heard of that saying live everyday. Like it's your last more often flip that live every day as if it's your first it's the same, isn't it? If you call up every morning thinking this is my first day you've got enthusiasm. You've got vigor. You've got no fear live every day as if it's your first. It's a bit like that. Isn't it? So play every hole as if it's your first

Speaker 1 00:15:40 And a shot. Every shot as though it's your first year. Okay. The second one, learn to ask yourself good questions.

Speaker 0 00:15:49 Yeah.

Speaker 1 00:15:50 Which is let's go to golfing again. Where do I want this golf ball to go rather than where I don't want it to go. So when you're protecting a score, protecting a lead, you're going, I don't want to go in the water cause I'm doing really well. I don't want it to go into the bunker. I'm not very good at bunkers, but actually your focus should be aware. Do I want this golf ball to go? Uh, cause we're talking golf here, but you could say that in life. Couldn't you.

Speaker 0 00:16:13 So the question that you don't want to ask yourself, what went wrong there? What

Speaker 1 00:16:17 Went wrong?

Speaker 0 00:16:17 Or why did the hit it into the tree? Why did he go in the bunk?

Speaker 1 00:16:20 The why is the most negative word that you can ever use? It's just a terrible word to use. What do I want this golf ball

Speaker 0 00:16:27 Today?

Speaker 1 00:16:28 And again, if you're still behind that golf ball and you're really certain that you're going to hit it on that fairway chances are you're going to hit it on that fairway. If you, if that doubt comes in or if that comfort zone kicks in, ah, I don't normally play this well, it doesn't matter if it goes wrong, guess what? It's going to go wrong. So this is why these things need discipline. Yes.

Speaker 0 00:16:47 And do you know what the thing is about questions is often, if you ask yourself what the answer, what you want the answer to be, then ask the question based on what you want. Be honest to me sounds a weird way of going about life, but it absolutely works.

Speaker 1 00:16:58 Yeah. Yeah. Leave expectations at home. Focus on execution, really focus on the task in hand. So you're not, you know, yes. We'd love to shoot wonder under our handicap, but actually leave that at home and go and do it really focus on you, what you want to do rather than what you don't want to do. Okay. Aggressive play will keep momentum on your side aggressively. So the amount of people that you see are winning tournaments and then they back off, they come protective and then they lose. And yet fortune favors the brave. Sometimes, sometimes, you know, if you're winning a tournament, you then become defensive. If you're chasing the tournament. So you're one or two shots behind you generally play more aggressive. And before, you know, you've caught up or even overtaken, it's the ones who were in front of you tend to hold back. So keep being aggressive in a clevis or

Speaker 0 00:17:51 That's exactly going to point out because like, if you get too aggressive, it's a fine line. Isn't it. You get too aggressive. If you put too much force into it, you get too wound off and it can end up in a spiral. What's called

Speaker 1 00:18:03 Adrenaline.

Speaker 0 00:18:04 You've got it. You've got to choose a word that works for you. What we're saying is be a positive, positive,

Speaker 1 00:18:10 But don't, don't, don't just tap it, you know, commit to the shop and really commit to shop. Again. This sounds really easy. Stop thinking about your score and focus on the shot. It's so easy to just focus on your score. And one on to wonder, I've just got to do this. I've got to do that.

Speaker 0 00:18:28 Oh, you read that cough.

Speaker 1 00:18:38 Um, really again, really important, um, design your best routine design, your best routine, which could be standing behind a ball, focusing on a, a S a target that may be in front of you or focus on your end, target, go for your routine, get yourself set up correctly. Every single time, every time you're about to play a full shot or even a chip shot puts you up. So get a really, really good routine. Yeah. Because under pressure, you can then rely on it.

Speaker 0 00:19:09 A process

Speaker 1 00:19:10 Process

Speaker 0 00:19:11 Know I'm an engineer and I'll go, what processes do you know? Like, um, in an air, in an aircraft, they always have. If it goes, if it's all going drastically wrong in an airplane, they'd get the book out. They stay calm. They get the book out. What do we do is a process. They stick to it. Yeah.

Speaker 1 00:19:26 Ah, here's a clever thing for you, especially if you're under pressure, right? Your routine down on your head cover. If you can, because you're always going to see that had cover. When you, when you're pushing your trolley or you're carrying your bag or whatever, you can keep reading. It just reminds you of, it's not cheating, but it's a good way of getting one at one. Again.

Speaker 0 00:19:45 That's when people get under pressure, they want to do your brain goes into doing my doing mode when you get into pressure. Yeah. So somebody said to me, oh, Joel, I don't know what to do. And you know what I said, we don't have to do anything. All you need to do is change your thinking, change your thinking, because that will change your actions. Run. It don't work on the do, do, do. Cause that comes from,

Speaker 1 00:20:04 Yeah. Look that with that. So let's say you've got an approach shot that you can hit in the green focus on your target. How close can I get it rather than, well, I hope this goes on the green and hope it doesn't go in the bunker. I hope I don't end up over there. Really focus on where you want that ball to finish. And guess what? There's a good chance that golf ball is going to go there. Yeah. Again, this sounds really, really easy, but it's super

Speaker 0 00:20:26 Important. One more point then on the comfort zone,

Speaker 1 00:20:30 Um,

Speaker 0 00:20:32 New

Speaker 1 00:20:32 Process creates new habits.

Speaker 0 00:20:36 Yeah. Nice,

Speaker 1 00:20:38 Nice. Isn't it?

Speaker 0 00:20:39 So it comes down to this thing, um, just because it doesn't feel right. Does that mean he's wrong? It's just that you're in, it is a bit like if you smoking or something, having been a smoker donkey's years ago, but when you stop, it feels a bit weird. It doesn't mean that it's wrong. Does it correct?

Speaker 1 00:20:54 Correct. So today I've spent quite a lot of time with two really great friends. So Nick and mark, one of our neighbors and we've, uh, Mark's been, um, revolutionized in his short game. So I've really been helping with his short game and one movement that he kept making all the time. As it, as he was about to hit the shot, he kept leaning backwards, which meant he either hit the ground before a ball or slightly thin the ball. And all we got into do was transfer his weight so well through impact his weight was moving onto his left side for impact, not once did he hit it fat to hit the ground before the ball? It slightly thin the couple, but the outcome of that was still much better. What it wasn't is a complete miss it. Uh, and just because we've changed his routine. So he had a little practice, he was transferring his weight. You then apply that to the shop. It's chip is chipping was sensational today. I don't think of any, seen anybody with the biggest smile on his face. He was like a three out of 10 and he's gone away 11 out of 10. And he's just so confident. And he says, is that all I had to do? But all I did really was changed the routine again.

Speaker 0 00:22:02 And it becomes a habit. It doesn't matter

Speaker 1 00:22:04 Exactly that yes,

Speaker 0 00:22:05 You get in the point about comfort zone. You we're saying, you know, um, when you in it, I'm like, I think he saw idea something to think about when you're in it, you feel anxious. That's bit weird, isn't it? Cause you think you'd feel anxious when you're out of it. So you've just got, think about that little stretch zone. I'm you that little stretch zone. What is it you want to change? There's some reason what is it? You want to change? How committed you are to that. And you've got to do something that feels wrong. So we eventually get to feel right

Speaker 1 00:22:31 In the comfort zone.

Speaker 0 00:22:32 Yeah. You've got to go, go feel wrong to eventually feel good, to feel wrong.

Speaker 1 00:22:35 Yeah. Then when you do it really well, it becomes normal. Then it's the fear of changes. So often it's such a problem

Speaker 0 00:22:41 And there's more and that's my favorite saying, isn't it ships, our ships are safe in harbors, but that's not what they're built for.

Speaker 1 00:22:50 Yeah. W we're built for so much more. We, I don't know any golfer out there who can't get a bit better.

Speaker 0 00:22:55 Yeah. Yeah. But allowing yourself, that's the thing, allowing yourself small. Just trust the process. Yeah. Yeah. So anyway, that was quite a good session. I think that was quite good on conference. I'm like

Speaker 1 00:23:07 Nice and scent. Well, it is simple, but it isn't. But if you just think differently, it can create tremendous outcomes. Yeah. So I've got, I've got more things, but I'll share that with you in the next one.

Speaker 0 00:23:16 Oh yeah. Do you know what I'm thinking? How many times did he say green? Did you say great? I don't know. I've lost count. I was so interesting. What you're saying? I forgot.

Speaker 1 00:23:23 Well, I actually thought I would do is get you to say green for me.

Speaker 0 00:23:28 That doesn't count either

Speaker 1 00:23:29 What? Green.

Speaker 0 00:23:31 No. She's wants to come say. Okay. So, um, do you want to have a look, see where the, uh, see where the hole is? The

Speaker 1 00:23:40 Hole in one hole

Speaker 0 00:23:41 That you guessed the whole in

Speaker 1 00:23:42 One very, very small court. I'm going to say Dale, I'm going to say something just because I know the

Speaker 0 00:23:50 Tree.

Speaker 1 00:23:51 I can see it.

Speaker 0 00:24:13 What are you thinking you want to try and guess? Just by seeing a little tiny bit on the side, it could be a tree.

Speaker 1 00:24:18 It looks like soon it could be went with, but it looks a bit narrow to me, but anyway. Okay. So

Speaker 1 00:24:38 It

Speaker 0 00:24:38 Is quite distinctive

Speaker 1 00:24:39 For supporting character. Again.

Speaker 0 00:24:43 Do you need the glasses? The glasses on about, it's a proper hole of a proper website. Okay. I mean, it's fairly distinctive. It's got trees on the left and trees on the right as a one curse. I think the dog knows not,

Speaker 1 00:25:00 Well, I I'm going to say it's Wentworth. You got to give me that Cookie. You are.

Speaker 0 00:25:10 Oh, no. I'm not selling anyways saying I feel like I want to say something, but I'm not.

Speaker 1 00:25:22 16th or whatever.

Speaker 0 00:25:23 Oh, good debt pump phase. You're saying the 16th at Wentworth.

Speaker 1 00:25:29 Well,

Speaker 0 00:25:29 I'm not going to tell you in the meantime, don't even try asking me. Don't even try to ask him because final

Speaker 1 00:25:36 16.

Speaker 0 00:25:39 Okay. We'll stick that on the Facebook page. I'll by the way, when I put the picture on the Facebook page, it's not about like Googling it. Have a look. So go, oh, is this Xander?

Speaker 1 00:25:46 It's just a bit foot. It could be the 14th, but went, but I'm going to go with 16. I'm going

Speaker 0 00:25:50 With 16, 14.

Speaker 1 00:25:52 I think it's 16 there. Anyway.

Speaker 0 00:25:54 We'll see.

Speaker 1 00:25:55 Let's see next week,

Speaker 0 00:25:57 Next week, Tuesday. So next thing you melodramatic moments this week. I mean, you've given a lot of there and you're flipping out, but lost that whatever way.

Speaker 1 00:26:09 It's not the big friendly,

Speaker 0 00:26:12 The other big friendly,

Speaker 1 00:26:15 The FDA book to fly grit.

Speaker 0 00:26:19 Oh, I know all about the best squad, but let's say there's a video on the YouTube channel.

Speaker 1 00:26:25 Dedicated

Speaker 0 00:26:25 That to you.

Speaker 1 00:26:26 Yeah. My, my dad actually showed it me, uh, which was really nice. But, uh, I've had the opportunity to share it with mark today On believable manipulation. Yeah. The butterfly grip, if you've never heard of it is a strong top hand and a weak bottom hand. And so, so this one comes around and this one goes over or vice versa if you're left-handed okay.

Speaker 0 00:26:48 There is a video. If you, if you listen to this and not watching, there is a video and we will put some pictures on the Facebook page, I can have a look at the,

Speaker 1 00:26:55 So when you open your fingers, it looks like it's a flight, but what it, what it does. One, one hand neutralizing the other one and the control and the spin that you can get off the golf board is unbelievable. So get on YouTube type in Julian matter, butterfly grit, and have a play with it. Do it in the bunkers there from, uh, around the green, need a really nice life for it. So don't try and do it off a bad lie, anything like that, but do it off a really nice lie with a lofted club. Oh my God. What can you do with butterfly? It's sensational. Mark's face was an absolute picture. Yeah.

Speaker 0 00:27:30 I'm also a person that gets really excited. What your goal for it?

Speaker 1 00:27:33 I don't, I don't share. I don't share the books with that many people, but while my God might not, was he was, he just didn't realize you can hit the ball with, with speed and get it to go such a short distance with so much spin control on it. I would say first time, he's really controlling his golf ball rather than hitting. And I'm not saying it's an open cause he didn't do that. But this time it was a different grade.

Speaker 0 00:27:55 You ask a question, can you show me how to do it? Then I say this every week, I say this every week, the only time I'll get any golf, hints and tips is when I'm sat next to him here every week on the podcast, he's too busy teaching everybody else. So you heard him say that? He said it, show me the butterfly grip. Maybe we'll put, we'll put it on the channel.

Speaker 1 00:28:12 Yeah. I'm going to show you it's up to you to practice it all square. So Joe Little Jim, please.

Speaker 0 00:28:20 Yeah. What it sort of relates to, um, some of this That doesn't count so far, I've got to cause I did hear you say that. So you've got to, now they've got to Rocky roads. I'm not telling you why

Speaker 1 00:28:34 The screen I'm going to keep going. Joe's little gem,

Speaker 0 00:28:40 Not even slightly funny. Um, my little term is here. It is. It's a big one. 90% is good enough. 90% is good enough. What I'm saying is a hundred percent is perfect. 90% is good enough. So it relates to your expectation if I'm honest. Cause like if you set yourself to my expectation that you want to be too perfect Can only go down one way. So I'm saying it's a mental approach experiment with it. That 90% is good enough. You don't have to be perfect. You are good enough as you are. Stop trying to get to that level. Just go out with a nice expectation.

Speaker 1 00:29:22 So if you're hitting an approach, shot and ball lands on the green, that's good enough. It doesn't have to go next to the flag. If it lands on the green,

Speaker 0 00:29:29 You tell me

Speaker 1 00:29:30 I like that. So the, the, you know, taking the pressure off, you have that approach. Um, almost don't go at the flag, go at the green then. Uh

Speaker 0 00:29:42 'cause sometimes you try and be too perfect. Is what I'm saying, which is what you were saying about your expectation. Yeah. Yeah. Leave you

Speaker 1 00:29:48 Expectations.

Speaker 0 00:29:51 You just have to the Rockies, aren't it. Remember? You've got a daughter. You've got a daughter, but also like saying yeah, she does. Do you know what I'm saying? I'll give you one. All in one go. Okay. So that's three Rockies, Rocky, Rocky, Rocky. There's a thing. The dormy more on that. And at the time Rocky, Rocky, Rocky, we're waiting for you to say it. Um, anyway, before we go, how's your feet.

Speaker 1 00:30:17 Favorite bit soleus. They took the dog for a walk, forgotten the boots, put the golf shoes on. I actually went for a walk around a golf course. It should, But half way round and the back nine. Oh my God. My toes are cute.

Speaker 0 00:30:33 I would think you'd been motivated by your toes ever since what I find quite funny is that you kept referring to it as the back nine. It's an overgrown golf course. Nobody goes there anymore.

Speaker 0 00:30:45 I think if there's not a golf course anymore, it's old. It's just not used anymore. It's a shame. I know it isn't

Speaker 1 00:30:51 But my

Speaker 0 00:30:53 Dog didn't do anything else.

Speaker 1 00:30:55 Nope. Nope. Yourself. Don't worry. Don't go for a dog. Walk with shoes that are slightly too.

Speaker 0 00:31:00 No one can work out while you've got some, choose a too small for you anyway. But what you said was there okay. To stand around and you don't go and play golf in it, but they're okay for you.

Speaker 1 00:31:10 I'm good at standing and talking. No, no, not today.

Speaker 0 00:31:16 Well, I'm not, I I'm not rubbing his feet. No. Why not doing that anyway? Hey, you enjoyed today's little. Um, we want a name for our little blog cast podcasts and we want to name, um, we were talking about T talk bluntly or to anyone else,

Speaker 1 00:31:31 But golfing something. So if you guys want to leave a comment and um, give us a clue of what you want to talk about what I have received the last few days, which we'll definitely start to use in the, in future podcasts is some fabulous quotes from our launch video that we put on, on YouTube. So some quotes are coming in about great golfers. Um, I'm going to have to save them and actually spill the beans, say who sent them, who sent them. And uh, what they've actually said, I don't want to do them. And Ms. Justice.

Speaker 0 00:32:07 Yeah. It's actually here. Yeah, yeah, yeah. So, uh, we've got comments here from, um, Tony guest saying, um, oh, the golfing quote, Sam Snead. You've got to dance with a woman you're wrong. That's the danger of reading them out, live on it.

Speaker 1 00:32:24 I got to dance with a w which basically means you've got to play with what's what game you've got on the day.

Speaker 0 00:32:29 That's why I'm saying basically if you turn off, blah, blah, blah. So thank you for that Tony guest. Um, we've got, uh, awesome big, long quotes here. I'm from Gary Clay book. Um, we've got Mike soul Thomas Fraser or these people that are talking, um, on our YouTube channel. So

Speaker 1 00:32:48 I'm not a good one. That's an interesting one. Yeah. I'll let you read that one.

Speaker 0 00:32:53 Uh, is it all about the golf? The golf swing is not a horizontal swing. The golf swing is not a vertical swing. The golf swing is a diagonal swing, the golf swing. Guess what? Mike Austin called his elusive compound pivot moment, movements the shifting and turn it all the golfers hip as one solid movement. The golf swing has continuous glorified diagonal movement that crosses over the lovely swing center circle of our body knows our opposing oblique muscles groups with the timing and tempo of a lovely walls.

Speaker 1 00:33:26 So, and that was Thomas who sent that through was

Speaker 0 00:33:30 Brilliant.

Speaker 1 00:33:30 Interesting one. Isn't it

Speaker 0 00:33:32 Point to end our little hang on with the timing and tempo of a lovely waltz. So take that with you to the golf course and maybe,

Speaker 1 00:33:41 Yeah. And that just again, just reminds me of, uh, one of the founder members of proper golf in Rudy, uh, sadly passed away just yeah, he was world Latin American dance. Well, he didn't know about movement was unbelievable, but I really miss Rudy when I don't get to, I used to speak to him all the time, so, yeah. Sorry, sorry.

Speaker 0 00:34:03 Sorry. Yeah, he could waltz. So, um, I think that's a nice way to end. It doesn't matter Until next week. Yeah. So send us your comments, questions that will golf quotes and everything. Get involved on our Facebook page and stuff. Um, any technical questions? Here's your man.

Speaker 1 00:34:22 Just message me, email Always happy to answer any questions that you've got or read out your quotes. So the next one.

Speaker 0 00:34:31 Yeah. Thank you very much. Um, so have a good week and we'll see you next week. Take care of.
