Golfing Success Story and more...



Golfing Success Story

I get a lot of emails. And it’s amazing what people write to me about. Some are funny. Some are pure hate and there are others who write with passion about their game.

Most of all, golfers are looking for a way to play their best without all of the complication.

Simply, they want a way to get reward for effort. Golf can be hard and sometimes it can feel like one step forwards and then two (or three) steps back.

The magic of the learning process is when the game becomes easier. When you’re able to hit the shots you want. When you feel you are maximizing your potential. And yes, when you shoot lower scores and see that handicap come down.

I received the below email from Rod just before Christmas.

Hi Cameron , just wanted to say thank you for introducing me to Automatic Golf . What an amazing 6 months I have had playing since starting with your program. As you know I started with a handicap of 32 & over the last 6 months my handicap has come down to 18 – way beyond my dreams & goal that I set out at the start. I just wanted to play more consistent golf & enjoy every round, I’m certainly doing that thanks to Automatic Golf

I like this because it’s honest. There’s no BS and it’s real. While it would be amazing to get an email from someone saying they’ve reduced their handicap from 25 to scratch and are now signing up to the PGA Tour, that is not realistic.

And the more I write and coach the thing I am honing in on more and more is enjoyment.

Enjoyment is an easy thing to overlook and many will say, “That’s not for me”. The golf industry, for the most part, has us brainwashed into thinking that enjoyment only comes when we “master” our swing and technique.

I disagree. It’s possible to play for fun now and then watch your game soar:

  • Play with more freedom
  • Hit the ball more powerfully without getting bogged down with instructions
  • Discover more rhythm and flow
  • Develop more inner confidence about your game and ability (I have said for many years you’ll be able to drive to the course and “know” you’ll be able to play well)
  • Build a better game under pressure (instead of falling apart)
  • Gain better technique without thinking about it (I call this Technique Without Technique)
  • Find deeper satisfaction from the game (this is when golf truly becomes the best sport in the world)

While many golfers around the world are fumbling about with their grip, stance or some new swing theory. Automatic Golfers are truly playing golf.

They are stepping up to the tee and hitting the ball in a way that they want. They are hitting the shots that feel good to them.

They are having fun.

And because they are working with their learning system, they are being rewarded with results that mean something to them. They are even surprising themselves with what I like to call, Remarkable Golf.

If your golf in 2020 wasn’t all that you wanted it to be, then I urge you to do something about it. If you keep doing the same thing that you’ve always done then you’ll almost certainly keep getting the same results.

Note: Changing your grip, stance and/or swing is not really doing anything differently. This garbage is just more of the same.

I call my approach a learning methodology (instead of a technical one) and you can learn more about it over here.

By the way, all of my best clients, those that get the most from their game, ask the best questions, provide the most intriguing conversations and send enlightening emails have all been part of this.

I wish you well for 2021 and I hope your golfing dreams come true.

Good golfing,

Cameron Strachan

Profound Putting Performances

Over the last few months I’ve been getting some unbelievable feedback from my putting coaching/ideas/concepts.

I almost can’t believe it. After sitting around and doing nothing for nearly 10 years, things clicked into place. And when I get emails and feedback like the ones below, it is truly amazing.

This has changed my golfing life

My putting is off the planet good

I wish I had found you years ago…

Yesterday had the first round I can remember without a three putt

It was as if fate brought you and your coaching to me.  I will be singing your praises!

my last 3 gross rounds have been -3, level, -2

I truly believe your system makes so much sense so hoping I can do it justice

I say this as a psychologist … you may be onto something

for the first time today in a round I had 27 putts

I could go on and on. I have been averaging 1-3 comments/emails like this every day. Like I said, I cannot believe it.

And it has inspired me to share my putting story and philosophy to a much wider audience. My coaching, goes way deeper than most of the traditional stuff we get taught, like,

  • rock your shoulders
  • keep your eyes over the ball
  • putt with firm wrists
  • “not up, not in”
  • “drive for show, putt for dough”
  • etc

I have just finished writing a putting manifesto that goes way deeper into the process of successful putting. You can read the article over here.

Please note: It’s quite long. It’s going to take some commitment, and is only aimed at those who are truly serious about putting their best.

It is particularly aimed at those golfers who have tried all the tips/techniques and failed. Who have a garage full of putters and who drive to the course dreading the thought of yipping and missing lots of putts. It’s for those golfers who hate putting and want to do something about it.

This manifesto is for you. And I hope I can get an email from you down the track telling me that you’re putting better than ever.

3 very important golf principles

I consider the following 3 golf principles absolutely vital. And they are especially true if you’re the kind of golf who want to:

– play with way more enjoyment and satisfaction
– use golf as a learning vehicle (so you continue to get better and better)
– want to take your golf game as far as it will take you (I think too many of us over-estimate what we can do today, but completely under-estimate how we can be over the journey)

Anyway, I shot the below video on the way to golf the other week and I think you’ll get something out of it.

 

If you want to order reboot, you can do so here.

You can’t be a cynic (Cameron has a troll)

Let’s do some straight talking.

You may or may not be a fan of me, www.GolfGooRoo.com or my Automatic Golf theories. And if you’re not a fan or not interested that is fine with me. I promise I won’t hold a grudge.

But, if you’re struggling with your game. If you’re frustrated, confused, fed up with your golf you can’t be a cynic. You can’t ignore everyone. You’ve gotta take a leap of faith with someone. Actually. I suppose you don’t. You can keep doing what you’ve always done, but don’t expect improvement to come your way.

If you really want to play better and you’ve gone down the traditional path (new clubs, new swing theories, tips and tricks etc) and failed, you’ve gotta buy in with someone. And it better be someone offering something different.

I haven’t been blogging much of late because I’ve been focused on expanding my theories to a much wider audience. And like golf learning, there has been some ups and downs. I doubt myself. I get a surge of confidence. Then something bad happens…

… like over the last few weeks I’ve had a troll (if you can be bothered, see image below). Old-mate has it in for me. At first it bothered me because this is all very new to me. But then I realised that negative comments are part of this game.

So I’ve embraced the negativity as a sign I’m doing something positive. I’m helping golfers in a different way to the norm and there will always be Shitweazels who won’t like that. And a percentage of those critics will spam, troll or just be a right pain in the arse. Whatever!

The point here is you’ve gotta be prepared for anything. Whether it be your golf game, your business or personal life. You can’t be overly sensitive and you certainly have to be open to learn.

So, I’m asking you not to be a critic. I think we can learn from everyone. I’m reminded of a time that I invested in a fairly strange US golf scientist. He turned out to be a little bit on the wacky side, but I learned a lot from him. Most notably, to look at things differently and don’t be afraid to challenge the status quo. The fact is, if you aren’t getting what you want, then you need to do/try something differently.

And this is the hard part. It’s easy to criticise. It’s easy to stay still and do nothing. But it takes courage to open your mind and ask, “what can I learn today?”. And if someone has spent a huge part of their life committed to a cause, they can’t be ALL full of shit. They’ll have something worth taking on board.

Onward

Steady get’s it. He is my longest serving client and this week he made the effort to come visit me.

Now Steady knows a lot about Automatic Golf – he has read all the books and he mentors a few golfers on the principles. But like us all, he’s still learning and on the 3rd tee I saw something I didn’t like.

Me: Steady, do you mind if I coach you a bit mate?

Steady: Go for it. I’m keen to learn.

Me: What the bloody hell are you doing? Why are you rushing and why did you tee your ball up there?

I threw the book at him. And I can do this because I know him well and he understands me. I also needed to shake him up a little because he had slipped into some bad habits.

He wasn’t following the process
He was getting lazy
He was rushing and mistaking this for playing quickly (a common issue)
He wasn’t playing his game

And this is what separates Steady from the critics. He didn’t get upset or mad. He thanked me and applied what he learned. And I have absolutely no doubt whatsoever that he’ll be able to take yesterday’s coaching and go deep with it.

He’ll certainly improve.
He’ll reignite his passion for the game.
He’ll play with more certainty and confidence.
And there’s no doubt he can keep learning and shooting lower scores.

It would have been easy for Steady to stay at home and avoid the 3 hour drive. He could have stayed on the couch and pretended that he didn’t need any coaching. But he took a leap and was open to learn. I certainly put him in a headlock but it was well worth it.

Wanna know what I coached him? I did nothing else but covered the topics that I talk about at length over here. The video is about 60 minutes but it will certainly allow you to make a huge mental shift. Don’t be a cynic. Take some time out of your day to watch.

I have a Troll!

Bubba Watson is a genius

Here’s a really good article on Bubba Watson. Well worth a read if you’re in the game to play your way and buck the system (I think we should all add a little “do it my way” attitude to golf).

Check out the Bubba article right here.
