Golf & Neuroplasticity: The Open 2009

It was about a year a go in a post called The Open and The Brain at Royal Birkdale I said when Greg Norman at 53 led into the final of The Open:

“……Yet on the first two days he single putted 17 holes including a 50 footer. Perhaps his brain has been well primed by years of putting, more years than any of the other players……”

Looks like neuroplasticity is at play again on the exciting start of The Open at Turnberry: 5 birdies and no bogey put 59 year old Tom Watson at the top. Nothing beats years of green reading and putting.

Welcome back.
