The Psychology of a Confident Golf Swing Part 2
Here in England we are on the verge of the new football season and there is a large amount of transfer speculation and the like occurring. With football, we often find that the players who are doing well are confident. When they are having a great spell of the season, scored a lot of goals or something like that, their competence escalates as they feel more confidence. When their confidence is knocked, they might go through a bad spell and often their skills seem to be less available. My point here is that of self image and how we perceive ourselves.

It wants to stay in one place until the job is done, but in golf, we think about the present; the stance, and we think about the future; the shot.
The mind wants stimulation, and the stance simply doesn't fill the bill. The shot on the other hand has hope and excitement, wondering whether the ball will go where you want it to, where it will land, and what you will need to do next.
When you set up and look downrange, your mind almost instantly locks on to the shot thoughts....and abandons the task at hand of taking the backswing and making the transition....
