Hey all, new to the forums(see my intro thread in the welcome section), but not to golf....

I've always, always, always had trouble hitting my driver and fairway woods straight...until yesterday. After nearly two decades of failed attempts at correction, it seemingly happened in one simple change in thought process before beginning my swing. I adjusted my swing thought to focus only on staying off my toes during my down swing....and I'll be damned...it worked!

Instantly after that simple adjustment I began hitting not only my driver and woods, but irons as well, longer and straighter than ever before. The ball's flight path was beautiful...and I couldn't help but laugh at myself...

Long story short, I guess persistence pays off

I don't mean to rain on your parade, but just so you don't get too excited - I've often hit upon swing thoughts or keys that worked for a range session or a round or two, then just as suddenly stopped working completely. Don't get discouraged if that happens. It's a process.

Ain't that the truth. Find something, lose it. Find it again, lose it again. The best I hope for, personally, is minute, incremental progress in each cycle - so that the net progression is in the direction of less suckage.

Anyway OP, enjoy it while you got it. Isn't it a great feeling when you're just smoking everything?

Lol...to those who said it comes and goes, well of course it does, that's part of the game. I suppose the point I was trying to convey is that persistence is key...that is all.
