2.0    Operation DOG TAG |Objectives and SCOPE


By: Charles W. Boatright

2.1    Operation DOG TAGS has four major objectives as its mission to:

  1. Use the sport of golf to provide Veterans with a CBT (Cognitive Behavior Training) to get the Veterans back into a functional role in their community. Operation DOG TAGS allows organizations to reach out to Veterans and provide the Veterans with social support by allowing them to use their highly-developed skills. Veterans are very familiar with basic training procedures and processes. This is the biggest factor. This benefits the Veterans and especially the host organization.
  2. Develop a means for Veterans to interact with groups and organizations on a personal level by establishing a daily routine and schedule. This allows the Veteran to set up their own incremental training that improves their with mental and physical condition while improving their golf game.
  3. Operation DOG TAGS uses a military sequential training model that is a major part of The GOLFER’S BRACHS-PALMER Golf Swing Technique develop the fundamental principles of golf. This allows Veterans and golfers to become their own golf swing coach. The GOLFER’S BRACHS-PALMER Golf Swing Technique provides a process where the golfer can consciously train using a very specific sequence and incremental process to develop a subconscious, or second nature-type performance called CARS (Cognitive Automatic Response Sequence).
  4. While Operation DOG TAGS is based on a military basic training model, Operation DOG TAGS provides an athletic curriculum for homeschools and early childhood development. The specialized training, fundamentals, and techniques in The GOLFER’S BRACHS-PALMER Golf Swing Technique format allow parents, teachers, and coaches to formulate a golf program for students. This type program develops basic and advanced concepts for golf students to use on a recreational or competitive level. Operation DOG TAGS allows homeschools and organizations the ability to access golf equipment at no cost for students that qualify with a physical education component that can provide opportunity for scholarships.

2.2    Use the sport of golf to provide Veterans with a CBT

In Section 1, the Background section of Operation DOG TAGS highlights the positive impact that CBT (Cognitive Behavior Training) has on Veterans and especially Veterans with PTSD. Operation DOG TAGS provides a means for organizations (e.g., VFW, churches, golf clubs, mental health associations, and other community groups) to provide Veterans with a functional role and the ability to contribute to their communities. Golf can alleviate symptoms of PTSD, while improving a Veteran’s confidence, and re-establishing their self-discipline, awareness, teamwork, and communication skills.

2.2.1  The training and self-coaching platform of The GOLFER’S BRACHS-PALMER Golf Swing Technique re-establishes a daily routine and pattern that includes The 405-Training Drill that includes The Orange Bucket Challenge and developing an incremental practice schedule. The biggest benefit is the support from engaging in a group function on a competitive level where Veterans see the most benefits. This provides both challenging and rewarding experiences for both the Veteran and the organization.

2.2.2  The GOLFER’S BRACHS-PALMER Golf Swing Technique allows the Veteran to adopt a very familiar incremental self-coaching technique to develop three (Preset-Synct) elements of presetting the wrists action in the golf swing. The two elements are basic maneuvers that form the basis of all golf shots (full, chip, pitch, draw, and fade). The golfer initiates a conscious self-coaching technique to develop a golf swing that becomes a second nature-type performance. I demonstrated these two maneuvers in my Orange Bucket Challenge, below. The objective of The GOLFER’S BRACHS-PALMER Golf Swing Technique is to develop CARS (Cognitive Automatic Response Sequence), where the Veteran and golfer can become their own golf swing coach out on the golf course. This is essential for realizing any significant improvement in one’s golf game.

2.2.3  The GOLFER’S BRACHS-PALMER Golf Swing Technique provides students in a homeschool setting with the ability to use golf as an athletic part of their curriculum. Operation DOG TAGS provides avenues for homeschool students to access golf equipment from organizations, in most cases, at no charge, if they qualify. Operation DOG TAGS that provides Veterans with basic and advanced training is a great resource to help train homeschooled students to set priorities, solve problems, develop perseverance, confidence, self-discipline, self-reliance, and key organization skills. This also provides the student with great structure for improving their cognitive ability in other academics. One reason for this is that mental control of golf requires synchronization of a series of high and low threshold (limbs and core) muscles.

2.3    Establishing the Critical Swing Path Hierarchy         

The GOLFER’S BRACHS-PALMER Golf Swing Technique provides golf students with basic kinesiology and background on how key muscles in the body work. The success of the golfer is to understand what’s called the Critical Swing Path hierarchy. The Critical Swing Path hierarchy is a sequence that takes advantage of certain key muscles for power, speed, and control in the golf swing. The GOLFER’S BRACHS-PALMER Golf Swing Technique the golfer to develop the Critical Swing Path that is essential for command and control. The human body contains 640 muscles. The majority of the these muscles are involved in establishing and executing the golf swing. But the objective for the golfer is to understand the hierarchy of the muscles used to initiate the golf swing. The Critical Swing Path is not the path the handle of the club or clubhead takes during the golf swing, but the series of critical muscles used to establish the golf swing. The title of The GOLFER’S BRACHS-PALMER Golf Swing Technique provides the critical muscles used to initiate the golf swing and to preset and Sync the golfer’s wrists.

2.4     Veterans understand the importance of command and control to execute a mission. The command and control is a key component to establish the Critical Swing Path using key muscles. While any military operation requires training, sequential procedure, and confident personnel, it takes a chain of command to set up the sequence of events. Sequence is vital in the golf swing as well. The ESPY Golf Swing Coach is based on a Delta Technique. Just as the Delta Force is a highly trained unit to carry out special missions, The Delta Technique in golf provides key muscles to establish the golf swing sequence.

2.4     The GOLFER’S BRACHS-PALMER Golf Swing Technique indicates the two key muscles that make up the Critical Swing Path, or chain of command. These aren’t the large and the familiar muscles that we associate with the golf swing. Just as there are two sides to a delta triangle figure shown above, there are three key muscles in the The GOLFER’S BRACHS-PALMER Golf Swing Technique. These are the Brachio-Radialis, Palmarus Longis, and Thenars muscles. The objective and scope of Operation DOG TAGS is to focus the golfer’s training on engaging these three critical muscles to direct the other muscles in the golf swing. The Palmarus Longus or PALMER muscle Sync the the golfer’s wrists with their elbows. The Thenar muscle represents the handle of the golf club and clubface. The Brachio-Radialis muscle, or BRACHS, muscle assists in presetting, cocking, and locking the golfer’s wrists. Then the golfer just has to complete their baseball-type swing of taking the golf club to the top of the golf swing. The figure below indicates these three critical elements used to establish the correct basic training and golf swing. One of the key fundamentals in The GOLFER’S BRACHS-PALMER Golf Swing Technique is to make sure each element is established properly and in order.

To prove that the golf swing is based on the baseball swing, I super imposed my baseball swing over my golf swing to show how similar the wrists action is in both swings:

I would like to dedicate Operation Dog Tag to Colonel Robert C. Boatright who served his country in World War II, Korea, and the Vietnam Wars.
