Hey, you know when im about to hit a golf shot, i find that if i focus on not thinking about anything, and have already established where i want the ball to go, most of the time the shot is a great shot, but its so hard to focus on not thinking. So how do you think about thinking or in a sense not thinking, does that make sense, can someone explain that to me.

I don't really think about thinking. If the shot I'm about to take is a full swing, I take in a deep breath, and then start my backswing as I exhale - helps me relax as I'm swinging.

In a college phillosophy class we once spent a two hour lecture "thinking about thinking". Worst class ever.

Sounds like a snoozefest to me. Did you manage to stay awake?

I try not too..Dad always tells me to take my time..but when I do that, I duff.

I usually walk up, look at my target, and fire away.

Makes for fast play too :)

That reminds me of a funny t-shirt I used to have:

I find it hard to think of anything but: Is this going to be the typical banana slice deep into the woods on the right, or will this be the one time I hit it straight and it goes in the woods on the left?

Thinking about your swing is for the range. The two thoughts I have on the golf course is tempo and alignment. If I do that well my swing is good enough.

Over the shot I really don't think about anything (if it will be a good shot).

I think I have good swing thoughts, until the ball lands, then my thoughts are, "what the hell was I thinking!?!?".

Also, whenever I ponder my existence and/ or purpose in life I seem to be walking down the fairway on a long par 5.

    • You really believe that nobody is 100% evil? There are at least 6,000,000 people that would have disagreed with you. But they're dead.
    • Over my lifetime I've voted in every presidential election for which I've been old enough to vote. I have voted for Democrats. I've voted for Republicans. I have voted for candidates who've won, and for candidates who've lost. My personal policy has always been to vote for the candidate of my choice, and then support who ever wins. If I'm ever invited to the Oval Office, I'm going! ... Again, it's pretty unlikely that I will ever get invited, but you never know.  I have to agree with you here. I can name some really good things and some things that I totally disagree with from every president in my lifetime. 
    • There are so many other curses and obscenities he could have used to express frustration and he chose that. Really sad on many levels.
    • Cheers Sammy, ach aye no bad mate, weathers a bit dreich but hey ho hahaha hows yer sen..?
    • I have no issue with swearing on the golf course, really, but it is important not to tie JT's latest transgression in wth the poll.  "F****t" isn't a "curse word", it's a homophobic slur.
