A Few Definitions to Store in Your Back Pocket for Later...


The definitions you need are:

Stability – “a behavioral state of a system that represents a preferred behavioral state and incorporates the notion of invariance by noting that a stable system will spontaneously return to a stable state after it is slightly perturbed.”(Magill 2010, p.97) An example of stability would be the trunk and hips in an upright position to walk. They can bend but then they will return upright.

Attractors – The stable behavioral states of systems. These are the preferred behavioral states such as the head swiveling towards the target with the thorasic spine in the follow through of a golf swing.

Order Parameters – Variables that define the overall behavior of a system. The order parameters in a golf swing would involve the shoulder rotation in the backswing, the upper arm extension and wrist hinge, and then the forward pelvic thrust toward the target in the forward swing along with a weight shift.

Control Parameters – The variable that will change the stability and order parameters. This is what tests out the attractor states. An example could be to set a golf swing on a very difficult lie such as a severe slope. This changes the balance of the person swinging.

Coordinative structures - When a persons nervous system constrains certain movements so that they coordinate to achieve a specific action goal. A shot in golf where the ball is under a low-lying branch would call for an abbreviated backswing.

Self –Organization - A specific stable pattern of behavior that emerges when certain conditions are present in a situation. This is all over the place in golf such as when a player is on a putting green and they know that their lower limbs need complete stillness without any movement.

Look what I found this morning on my way out the door! On Mother’s Day no less. Maybe this is a sign that my daughter will be a perfect angel 👼🏻 for the rest of the year. Haha #fourleafclover
❤️ Thank you @titleist for having us! ❤️ Manchester Lane is for ball testing, player club fitting and ball fitting. The level of detail to everything they do from the ground conditions to ball testing protocols is outstanding.
🙏 Thank you for the comments from all the previous posts (below the photos, I don’t look at DMs). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have really good ideas about what you’re looking for and what you need. If you have an issue, I may already have a video posted for it so check out my others. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If I don’t have the answer for you posted, leave it below 😀 remember, no question is too simple or obvious. If you have it, for sure someone else has it too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That being said, I can also get into more specific issues for the advanced player. Because those tips are not as useful for everyone, I don’t do them as often but I am happy to make one here and there. Thank you, everyone! 😘

I never should have downloaded this app... https://t.co/UsPg9pmiRO
This is soooooo sweet! https://t.co/hWC5xEQ5Eg
@mfinneygolf Just about. But with consequences that you can’t really create all too easily on the range.
Oh I’ll find you 🔎 (thank you😊) https://t.co/cHgVhOK8eV
