If your visualisation skills are as good as you think they are, you would have no problem conveying to the reader a far more elaborate and descriptive description of the best shot you ever hit.

If he was able to do this, it would be his WRITING skills that would show it.  Or, if in person, his SPEAKING skills, not his ability to visualize.

Bingo, that is like a person knowing the information, but they might suck at being a teacher. Not everyone can inspire the young minds of children. I've slept through some classes of teachers who thought they could. :-D

 

 

Also I am not the type of guy to express my personal excitement. Honestly I wasn't paying attention if my mind went into some high focus scenario were I only was able to concentrate on that shot. All I know is the shot matched what I wanted to the T, and that scenario worked out to a great shot. By great shot I mean hitting a strike the way I exactly want it. It didn't improve my game, the visualization of that shot, but it was a culmination at the time of all the hard work practicing I did.

I hate to get this debate started again but I figured I'd drop a little update. I've continued to play half a good round and half a blow up for the last couple weeks. My average score has been about 82, with 2 or 3 birdies and 6 double bogies. I got so down when I left the house yesterday I told my wife I didn't care if I shot 100. I was just going to have to come to terms with not being the golfer I once was. I shot 1 under yesterday, went back today and shot 2 under. Physical slump, mental slump, or whatever it was I'm glad it's gone and hope it stays that way. I appreciate all the tips and help.
