In comparing two ways of learning to play-one based on trusting your natural instincts and the other focusing on acquired technical knowledge.
“A perfectly good, well-formed, strong, and healthy man with a keen eye may do all that he has been taught and yet never really learn to play the game well, try as he will. In getting all these injunctions synchronized comes the real test of a man’s inherent ability to excel; primarily there must be concentration, and further, there must be coordination with the subconscious self, strength applied with extreme delicacy.”
C.B. Macdonald (1927)
