    I like the 20-second rule, Troy. Thinking about it, I do that all the time. And the longer I spend standing there, the more pressure there is to hit an awesome shot. I think it’s part of the reason that I strike the ball better on the range than on the course.

      Hey Nick,

      Thanks for commenting and Happy New Year.

      Yes this is a big one and I see it every weekend. I swear I can read the thoughts going through the players head the longer he stands there.

      I have a great post coming out shortly Nick on the golf set-up. This is a beauty and something all golfers should read. It’s so easy to implement and can be done by golfers of any level. It’s taking my golf game to a higher level as we speak.

    Great article. I completely agree with you that the majority of golfers spend way too much time over the ball. I believe that the less time people spend standing over the ball, the more natural (and athletic) of a swing they will make. In my opinion when people freeze over the ball for too long, they are not even giving themselves a chance to hit a good shot.

    Happy New Year!

      Thanks for your comment,

      You’re spot on, the longer golfers spend over the ball the more chance they have of performing a poor swing due to negative / numerous thoughts entering the brain.

      The good news is this is an easy fix on the golf course just by shorting the time spent over the golf ball.

    The weight shift is in my opinion the hardest thing for a weekend warrior or hacker to do. The current teaching process still after 70 years has a golfer doing or thinking about 12 or so things they must do to hit the ball correctly. I have to disagree. I’m old and disabled but can hit the ball well enough for who I am and I do it by using the Jim Venetos method. It may be something you would want to look up. It’s basically starting from a hitting position and if one does it right you can’t help but hit a sweet little draw every time. It’s so simple than once you understand the ‘stay still’ part is paramount, it becomes almost effortless.
    Nice article and spot on. Too bad so many ‘hackers’ still think the swing being taught is even worth attempting.

      Thanks Doc,

      Yes the Jim Venetos method is a different way of hitting the golf ball. But I always say to golfers, if it works for you then keep on doing it. Quite often what works for others might not always work for you.

      Great point.
