  1. We've heard many times that at least 90% of our game is played between our ears. When one stops to think about the myriad of conscious and subconscious things we do preparing for and executing a shot or putt, it's a wonder we're not all in rooms with padded walls. Since arriving in AZ last month for our winter season, I have been playing the best golf I can recall. Now I do have the new irons, new putter, and new driver shaft, and it could be that it just took a few months for those to hit full stride - but I'm thinking it's more my recent decision to try not to over-think, over analyze my shots. I cannot recall which pro interview it was where he discussed "freeing his mind of the clutter" and allowing the more "natural, free swinging" part of his skills back onto the course... but it resonated with me. Since retiring in 2016, finding MGS in 2018, and playing lots more golf, I have read lots of tips and advice aimed at improving our game. Some have really been helpful and others not so much. But this particular comment really got me thinking that perhaps I've fallen too far into the over-thinking side of the balance. Rather than step into a shot/putt worrying about not executing it correctly, I'm now expecting that I will. Instead of thinking through a long pre-shot checklist, just trying to think less and trust your ingrained memory and muscle/moto skills will be there. My last three rounds have all been sub 80 and yesterday's 76 my best of the season and near lifetime best. I'm hoping this level of play continues and that my effort not to let all the conscious and subconscious swing things get in the way. What are your thoughts on this?
