    Great article it is great to see more and more instructors talking about this stuff rather than technical positions etc.
    You mentioned that the Athletic brain only understands images, I seem to get the best results with my visualisation if I describe (verbally like a commentary) the shot in my mind as I visualise it. for example I say to myself I am going to hit a high lob it will hit the green (visualise a spot) then roll to the hole. Do you have any thoughts on this.

      Thanks Andrew. I believe what you are doing when you describe the shot to yourself is clarifying the image. The more detailed you can make the description, the more vividly you will imagine the shot, and the more clearly your Athletic Mind will understand the task (and usually be able to carry it out). I hope you will continue the practice, and even keep getting better at it. Cheers!
