Golf


At an American QiGong Association conference in San Francisco, I had the pleasure to meet a golf coach who had worked with Tiger Woods, and in fact written a book about Tiger's incredible, almost super-human golf swing. His book theorized that the reason for Tiger's immense power was that as a young child he had practiced QiGong exercises with his dad. This introduced him to feeling his swing in a heightened way, and also taught him to swing from the dan tien at a very young age. You see the results, as Tiger has dominated professional golf for many years of his career. Another reason all children should be learning Tai Chi and QiGong from kindergarten through university.


In golf, instructors encourage you to swing with the belly button. This is another way of saying to swing with the dan tien. Many golfers discover that they can drive the ball much farther after practicing Tai Chi for only a few months.


Also, T'ai Chi's relaxed motion allows the limbs to be swung by the dan tien's motion with no muscle resistance. This in turn allows the entire force of the dan tien's turning to be projected outward through the hands and club into the ball.
