    Don't worry Homer they are both like love struck teenagers with each other at the moment.

    Shocking really when Phil was bemoaning others having a pop at him.

    Re: I had a lesson today and... (rolling thread)

    Had a lesson last Thursday and something just stuck in my head for once. Was absolutely creaming every shot and getting that satisfying noise off the club face every time I hit the ball.

    Played golf on Monday and wasn't to sure if the lesson had stuck with me. Anyway fast forward 18 holes and I came off the course with my highest stableford score of 37 and played the best golf I'd ever played.

    Went to the range this afternoon and its carried on. Looks like I've really turned a corner in my game. Hopefully get my first card in soon in the next few weeks and get my handicap. Really hoping to do a few comps this summer

    Im not saying I've cracked it! Can anyone crack golf? Just that I've turned a corner in my game and I'm getting a bit of consistency. I'm under no illusions that a bad round is somewhere in the future but for the time being I'm enjoying my golf.

Apparently he does a lot of NLP work with is plus figure and single figure pupils so their might be something in it although I'd not heard of it. Does this "Zen Golf" book a few have recommende come from the same stable?
    a lot of bodybuilders do that technique of the tounge in the roof of the mouth as it is impossible to tense your neck muscles pushing your tounge up in the roof of your mouth (you've just tried haven't you). Reduces tension and relaxes you and in bodybuilding reduces the risk of injury.

    Good news. It will go backwards inevitably at some point but stick with what you were shown and trust it. You know it works

    Think you're best off ignoring LiverpoolDil the troll

    Interesting tips from your lesson, makes sense though. And if you're seeing results then that's bang on
