Golf and Your Peripheral Vision

I discovered a cool article in Golf Magazine about how your mind focuses on things... and the explanation focuses on this optical illusion.

12dot optical illusion

Before you ask... yes, there are dots appearing and disappearing as your eyes move around the grid. And no, it's not some kind of gif or something; the dots are actually printed as part of the grid. What you see depends on where you look.

You'll want to read the article to understand what this can teach you about how your mind works and how that knowledge can help your golf. It's pretty cool.

And if you're up for another challenge -- one that I don't think they actually intended -- there's a misprint in the article, the kind that is often used in yet another kind of focus challenge to test how attentive you are. Can you find the misprint?
