Improving "impoverished practice environments" - Ian Renshaw, Peter Arnott and Graeme McDowall
Peter Arnott and Greame McDowell run 'Golf on the Edge of Chaos' a unique coach development programme that allows golf coaches to learn and explore the applications of non linear pedagogy and the constraints led approach in golf. Greame also founded 'Golf on the Edge of Chaos' a unique coach development programme
Ian Renshaw is a regular podcast guest and is a researcher and renowned author specialising in the constraints led approach based at QUT in Australia.
They have just published a new book to demonstrate how their practice is driven and inspired by their alignment to a CLA, 'A Constraints-Led Approach to Golf Coaching' includes case studies and examples of how constraints are manipulated to induce adaption in the technical, tactical (or put in golf terms, course management), physiological, and psychological development mechanisms needed to improve at golf.
In this conversation we discuss how they apply the principles and seek to support golfers on their journey. We explore some of the the approaches that they use with young players, elite amateurs and also aspiring professionals.
It is a fascinating conversation.
