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.

You’re on the range. You’ve seen the alignment rods. You wonder how to use them...... With the @theopen coming up at @royalportrushgolfclub it will be interesting to see the players aim. With hardly any trees or other visual markers to use, they will have to find intermediate targets on the fairway. Many players do this already but it becomes a must for those who don’t. Here I’m using @bubbawhips 💕 for practice. I think having two is helpful because the first one you use to set your target line (where you want the ball to end up) and the second one set parallel to that on the ground. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ 💙 Apparel: @jlindebergsport ⠀⠀⠀ 🖤 Hardware: @titleist @scottycameron @vokeywedges 💚 Kicks: @gfore
Are you, or do you know someone who is thinking about starting golf? . Whether it’s you or someone you love, encourage it! This game is incredible at bringing unlikely people together whether it’s on the golf course or in conversation. There is no way I would have met the great Christine Lagarde @Christinelagarde (former head of the IMF and next president of the European Central Bank, Forbes Top 100 most influential women in the world, #3) and Jane Harman (former congresswoman from CA, and now head of the Wilson Center). These two incredibly bright and inspirational women, were so much fun to teach. What an honor and privilege to have had that time. . Happy Bastille Day! 🇫🇷 @christinelagarde @jlindebergofficial @jlindebergsport
So this was a fun round.
