    I just can’t seem to get thinking out of my mind while playing. It really paralyzes my swing. Any ideas.

      Try this:

      What To Think About When You Play:


      I did a tip a long time ago on this. I can’t seem to find it though. Jut before you take it away say to yourself 1, 2, 3. On 3 take it away. If you are thinking 1,2 and 3 you are not thinking of anything else.

      I would also be think about swinging easy and hitting the fairway or the center of the green. Not 250 down the fairway or getting it close to the pin. This way you are not putting pressure on yourself. Keep in mind that you should be working on your swing in either practice swings or when you practice. You should not be working on a ton of things when you play. If anything swing easy and work on your grip, setup and follow through positions. This way you are not getting confused thinking about the backswing.


      Hit, Hold and Check:

  2. Paul,
    I believe simple breathing exercises also help:inhale ,hold when counting One to FIVE ,exhale ,hold breath while counting One to FIVE .My swing thought is mainly to my right torearm which I don’t raise enough ,so I impl

    Hi Paul,

    Can you send me the link to the tip of the day from Sunday? I believe it was “Head Behind the Ball”. Thanks!

  4. Excellent lesson again ,Dave ,thank you.PIA NILSSON -ANIKA SORENSTALM’s coach-said a long time ago you should create two boxes :one is three feet behind the ball where you do your thinking ,planning rehearsal etc.; ,the other one is just around where the ball lies where you have no thinking thought ,maybe one “trigger thought only .
    My own triger thought is about tempo and rythm :”ONE,TWO THREE ,SWING (JOHNNY REVOLTA’s Formula ,back in the ’40’s!)…

  5. Wow..this is a great tip…I really enjoy Paul and David…3 year member and love the value of this program…improving daily….keep up the great work…Rocco
