    Re: SHARE YOUR SWING THOUGHTS??

    When the dreaded super slice creeps back and I can't fix it before I get on the course. I would go into aim as far left as possible just let the slice do its job mode... (everytime I do that it goes straight left)

      during the swing, when it's going good, absolutely nothing.

        Many thanks for your interesting post and cheers !
        Funny this is one of the hardest things to do (personally). I can't help but look down range/hole to see where my ball is heading.

        I have heard otherwise from other people saying that as long as the rest of your swing is technically sound, you can close your eyes and still make a pretty solid shot.

          Lately I've been getting lazy with my swing, meaning mostly arms and little hip turn. With shorter clubs I can get away with it. So at the range, I quickly move up to hitting 4i as that easily reveals the flaw resulting in a slice. As I engage my lower body more, the slice straightens out. Then after whacking a bunch of 4i, the rest of the irons seem so easy.

            Or, you might go one step harder, and follow Seve Ballesteros' practicing 3i on the beaches of Spain - well, maybe Wasaga Beach here, I guess:

              Achieve a good setup: grip, alignment, etc. "Release" club to target. The rest I leave to my muscle memory to sort out.

              Of course there are days when things go south and nothing is working. That is when i start "thinking" and things become even worse.

                On the range it's whatever I'm working on. On the course, tempo and target is the only thought before I swing.

                  You've got to play your miss..

                  Can't tell you how many times I've played with folks who have the most consistent ball flight, but where they aim (middle of the fairway) and where the ball ends up (not in the fairway) puts them in trouble every tee ball.. if they just played their ball flight by aiming away from the fairway I'm sure they would have lots more fun!

                    After trying all these different swing ideas of the golf forums.
                    If my swing goes bad it can be traced to all or all three defined parts of my golf motion
                    Backswing. Transition and Release

                      This year I've really concentrated on a nice slow consistent back swing. It's helped so much right from my driver to putter. This is my biggest year of improvement after taking a bit of a step backwards a lot of last season.

                        If you're exhausted from climbing up a hill to the green, you're grip is going to be too tight. No amount of swing thoughts are going to prevent this. Tom Watson said he only started winning when he learned to control his breathing. Of course, controlling your breathing is also a swing thought so whatever...

                          I like Annika Sorenstam's setup routine. She imagines a line a few feet behind the ball and perpendicular to the flight line. The area behind this line is the "thinking box". When she steps over this line to her ball, she is in the "playing box". Using these two "boxes" has made a difference in my game.

                            definitely slow down the swing and start the downswing in the hips

                              I'm convinced that swing thoughts don't matter as much as knowledge of the golf swing. You can tell yourself anything you want but unless you really know the mechanics of the/your golf swing, you're only kidding yourself.

                                On some misses I can't remember looking at the ball other than at address. A buddy's thought was "keep your left eye on the back of the ball." He also suggested, when putting, to hit it "up the ball's a$$." Unfortunately he's gone from this world. Another very good golfer friend only ever gave me one thought, when near the green: "get it on the f'ing green." Every time I decel and hit it short I remember I didn't use that thought.
