I think it basically just means that if you're hitting pushes your brain will want to swing further left which will just getting you hitting weak pulls or epic slices.
This is what I'm experiencing right now, trying to work my way through it but I really need to hit the range with a camera to get back on track. The siren song of my "all you can golf" membership is keeping me off the range but I gotta get to work on this.
Wow, this describes kind of what I've been doing to the letter. I can still hit draws, but my compensating move is to the kick the clubhead out and play pull-fades.

@David in FL I totally agree with you on this ... perhaps you can go convince @JetFan1983 as well?
Yea, I was wondering when someone was going to call me out on that. I don't have an official handicap, so I always leave it as a question mark. I've had it as that I think since 2010.
The lowest I got unofficially was 10, on my home course, but because it was unofficial, I wasn't really a 10, so I didn't put that up. What I am now, I have no idea. I've been having a blast teeing it forward this season, and to be honest, I think I'm going to continue to do this until I can break 70 from 5000 yards or so. Then I'll move back and record rounds, play in some tourneys, etc.
The forward tees are really teaching me how to get the ball in the hole, and I love that.
And just so this isn't a total thread hijack, some words of encouragement to EJ: You know we all love you and are cheering you on!
Question though: When you play golf, you play golf, right? Meaning, you're focusing on the ball and target, and that's it? Just wondering because sometimes I get into really dumb stretches where I think "my hips need to be 20 degrees more open!" and I'll think about that.... bad idea... Practice and changes are for the range, course is for playing.
Sorry if this is way off-base. You're your own best coach out on the course, so correct me if I'm way off topic here in terms of how you are approaching rounds.
