Task based training
TASK BASED LEARNING
Task-based learning is an approach to teaching and learning that focuses on developing practical skills through real-world tasks or challenges. In golf, task-based learning can be particularly advantageous because it allows golfers to develop their skills in a more natural and realistic way, rather than just practicing drills and exercises.
One advantage of task-based learning in golf is that it helps golfers develop their problem-solving skills. Golf is a game that requires constant adjustments and adaptations based on the conditions of the course and the shot at hand. By practicing real-world tasks or challenges, golfers can develop their ability to make quick decisions and adjustments based on the conditions they are facing.
Another advantage is that it helps golfers develop their feel for the game. Golf is a game that requires a certain level of touch, feel, and finesse, particularly when it comes to putting and short game shots. By practicing tasks that require precise control and feel, golfers can develop their ability to judge distances and control their shots with greater accuracy.
Finally, it can also be more engaging and enjoyable than traditional practice methods. By practicing tasks that are challenging and meaningful, golfers can stay motivated and focused on their goals, rather than just going through the motions of a practice session. You'll practice longer with a deliberate focus receiving meaningful feedback each shot.
During this (or any practice), you're expecting to hit a bad shot (relative to your ability) once every eight shots. If its more than that the task is too hard, less than that, its too easy and limited learning will take place. Find the 'Goldilocks zone' for you!
Overall, task-based learning is an effective way to develop practical skills in golf and can help golfers improve their decision-making abilities, feel for the game, and overall enjoyment of the sport.
