I know ... WV isn't on this thread but ... 

Anyone want to play Saturday morning at Locust Hill in Charlestown, WV?  I have a tee time for 2 more people at 10am.  Last time I checked there weren't anyone else on the time.  It was a 'Hot Deal' on GolfNow, so you save a bit there.

The most important mental skills for golf

When you’re playing well, what are you thinking about during your swing? I’m willing to bet it’s nothing at all. You’re seeing the target and making an instinctive swing. Conversely, when you’re playing badly, what are you thinking about during your swing? I’m sure it’s some technical instruction or you’re consciously working on preventing mistakes that might have occurred earlier in the round.

From my experience, too many swing thoughts are one of the biggest causes of inconsistency. But let me explain why this is the case.

So much of what is required in golf is about trust. Bobby Jones once said, The golf swing is too complex a movement to be consciously controlled.

When you trust yourself to perform an action you are using what’s called your “subconscious” mind. You consciously learned the skill until you were able to do it naturally. Now when you perform one of these actions, there’s no conscious thought going on. In fact, if you started consciously thinking about the actions involved, you would probably confuse yourself and struggle to do it.

There are 3 things you need to develop to reach your potential as a golfer.

1. Conscious skill development.

If you have a good process, you’ll be able to clearly separate your conscious thinking, from your “subconscious” thinking. In other words, you give conscious thought to picking the target and visualizing the type of shot required, so your subconscious, has all the information it needs to control your movement during a shot. Then it becomes about trusting your subconscious to do its job, without conscious interference.

2. Access those skills using only your subconscious mind during your swing.

I’m not saying you can’t have a “swing-key” which is a single non-technical thought that will help you counter things that you might do under pressure, like tempo, smooth takeaway, or staying centered. Make it a process goal not to have any swing thoughts during a round and make your focus external, not internal i.e. what you want the ball to do, not what your body must do.

3. Keep your hands from getting cold when playing golf in winter.

Because when the hands feel cold, it is really easy to get stiff, and in this case, it will definitely affect the swing, which may be a more important point than learning mental skills. Many golfers will prepare the Ocoopa Union 5S rechargeable hand warmer in their pockets when playing golf in winter, it’s better than the disposable one. It can continue to heat for 15 hours without interruption, keeping your hands warm all the time without affecting your performance.

Hope that when your experience accumulates to a certain level, you can use your subconscious to swing a beautiful shot, and keep your hands warm in this cold winter, making more nice swings!

My goal is to be thinking of nothing, but sometimes I start overthinking and have to tell myself to "Shut The F**k UP!!" It seems to work. If I let it go, my mind will just start rattling along, telling myself how to swing, how hard to swing, yakkity yakkity yakkity. I have learned to let my brain rattle on until I get over the ball. If it insists on taking over, I am toast until I get it to just shut up. It seems to work...mostly. Then I take a deep breath and just go.

Where do you play?

I am in Mercer county, so mainly Mercer Oaks and the surrounding courses, but not against a little drive!

  I also live in Mercer County, NJ and in my opinion both Mercer Oaks East and West are great layouts, but the course conditions are terrible anymore.  Greens are barely cut & never rolled resulting in bumpy slow as molasses speeds.  Bunkers on the East course could house tree farms with all the shrubbery that has been allowed to grow in them.  Many of the tee boxes are terrible too on both courses, etc. etc.   We used to have much better conditions all around but now all the county cares about is profit so they don't put any money back into the courses and the results are blindingly clear. 

For $260 I go over to Monmouth county and purchase the full privilege non resident county card and I get county rates and all the privileges just like regular residents do.   I play Charleston Springs North and South, Hominy Hill, & Howell Park.  All kept in amazing condition with great greens & speeds etc.  Worth every penny of the $260 to get the card!
