Whenever I host a Mind Factor event, and it comes to questions, swing thoughts seem to get a lot of attention.
Today I want to ask one question:
Whenever you have played your very best golf, is it usually down to MORE or LESS thinking?
Over and over again when I have asked some of the world’s finest golfers about their very best performances, it seems the repeating pattern is one of a QUIET mind or a CALM mind, as opposed to a mind drowning in thinking.
Golf is a curious game because it demands thought. You need to think about your current lie, the best place to land the ball for your next shot, the on-course hazards (water, bunkers etc), speed of the green, effects of the wind, etc. The list goes on.
But after all that thinking, you just need to switch to automatic and just play the shot. The swing thought you choose can help reduce the chatter in your mind – if you haven’t already seen my swing thoughts video (it’s free), you can get some good ideas on how to do this.
And please leave your thoughts and ideas below.
Ps – If you have my Players Programme Deluxe, you’ll find the topics in the ‘Effective Practice Swing’ course helpful.
