Yes, but learning is natural.

And being told to hold the club exactly like this, swinging on this plane, cocking your wrists and rotating like that goes against our instincts. We hardly ever make other skills this complicated.

Sometimes, the best solution is to walk up to the ball and hit the guts out of it. Then repeat.

This is hard to do not because you’re not talented enough to strike the ball but because your adult brain likes to get in the way and analyse. It’s also hard because this “natural” way of playing challenges the norm and you don’t like to upset the status quo. Now we’re getting closer to why you find golf so difficult…

… it has very little to do with your golf swing.
