Tai Chi Golf

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.
