Tai Chi Golf

2 Comments

Sometimes I get a bright idea and think “Yeah! That’s the ticket!” Today’s idea was “Tai Chi Golf” — incorporating the principles and techniques of taijiquan into the game of golf. I didn’t think anyone had really put it out there yet. Then I found a series of videos by Jake Mace demonstrating something of a technique bridge between Yang style taijiquan and various aspects of the golf swing. It looks like Jake Mace gets some pretty impressive results. For me, a recent golf enthusiast, it affirms the value of my time spent training in both, and the real pleasure of observing the crossover between the two. You can check out Jake Mace’s published videos HERE.

  1. Jake Mace is a fraud and his so-called tai chi is a joke. Learn from this con man an at your risk. Look up Jacob Rydberg

    • I recognize your concern. I don’t intend to present Jake Mace as a qualified instructor at anything, just the intriguing idea. Recently I’ve been reading Zen Golf by Joe Parent, and it may have some better and deeper connections. Thanks for viewing and commenting, Allan! ~ Tom
