Kinesthesia & Proprioception

Kinesthesia is a key component in muscle memory and hand-eye coordination, and training can improve this sense (see blind contour drawing). The ability to swing a golf club or to catch a ball requires a finely tuned sense of the position of the joints. This sense needs to become automatic through training to enable a person to concentrate on other aspects of performance, such as maintaining motivation or seeing where other people are.


A nice idea, but I couldn't help noticing yesterday and today that the pros do the same sort of things we do, pausing in the middle of a slo-mo swing and looking at the position of their hands, arms, and club. If it could be automatic for anyone, one would think that it was for them, not us.
