I came up with a little wristband you could write on called the Swing Thoughts Wristband. I made it to the golf channel Fore Inventors Only show in Orlando stage 2 but failed the pitch. I still have them for sale and use them all the time as swing thoughts are so important to the mental side of golf.

I was looking for two threads a few minutes ago that I thought would be listed here but aren't.  I thought I'd put a link to them here in case anyone else is looking for them (although they're easy enough to find in the "Swing Thoughts" forum anyway):

Of course, I'm not the author of either of these.  I'm just putting the link in one more place in hope they'd be in what I think might be the first place many people look.

Thanks. I added them to the list above.

The "four stages of competence" was a thread that seems worthy of saving in the grand collection of instruction threads. Like the 5 S's thread, it seems to be a good resource on how to learn as opposed to what to learn.

Another thread I was looking for that is a good candidate (in my view) for this list:

(as before, obviously not my writing)

I want to add my thanks and my endorsement of the material here in this thread. 

As anyone who has read anything I’ve posted here can tell, I’m still not a skilled player.

But I revisited my grip and my stance, using only the threads linked to here, and had my best range sessions possibly ever, this week. I’m still hitting my share of poor shots, but contact is much improved, and my swing feels much more comfortable now. Mostly due to setup alone! 

All I did was mimic the grip in Mike’s grip thread, and flare my feet, and I’m now hitting from a neutral stance, with a neutral, firm handed, (yet loose- wristed) grip.

My grip wasn’t drastically different before, but the seemingly small changes make it incredibly comfortable and much more solid now that it has been tweaked and made better.

I find that most of my really big misses are gone, and while I still push, pull, and even hook and slice some.. my misses are within a noticeably smaller ‘cone of uncertainty’. 

I also notice that very small changes to grip and stance now have the expected and desired effect on my shots. For example, if I hook one, then  very, very slightly strengthen my grip or open my stance, I’m likely to hit he next one straight, or fade it if I hit it cleanly. Never could adjust predictably before.

Very encouraged by, and appreciative of the instruction provided here, -for free, may I add!

Thanks a million.

When I read this in the topic "Regular users can't start threads here" I have no interest in this thread.

Only @mvmac and I can start topics in the Swing Thoughts forum. Anyone can post a response in a topic posted in Swing Thoughts, just like you did a few minutes ago.

It's why nobody bothers responding since July.  I don't get it.

Nobody's posted in this one topic since July because this topic is simply an index, a listing of "TST Instructional Content" in the first post. The place to post about any one specific thing is… drumroll please… in the specific topic, not in the "index."

    • I quit golf all the time. Usually when I’m playing poorly around the 14th hole 😃 I don’t think I’ve ever actually quit playing golf. I’ve taken breaks here and there but that’s not really quitting. I’ve taken several weeks away from golf at times for various reasons such as injuries, work/life obligations, and being mentally burnt out from trying to hard to improve my swing. I’ve come to learn that my enjoyment of the game has evolved over time. I used to think that I’d enjoy it more if I played better, but it’s all relative. Whether you’re a 5 or a 25, you’re going to hit good shots and poor shots relative to your own abilities and standards. Today I might be displeased with a shot that I would have been happy with ten years ago. And ten years ago, I would have been ecstatic shooting a score I’m not happy with today. I’ve learned that the process of improvement itself is what I enjoy, but it hasn’t made my individual rounds any more enjoyable now that I’m shooting scores 10-15 strokes lower than in the past. I’ve also discovered that I like golf course architecture and learning design aspects. I’m not particularly knowledgeable but it still adds an extra layer of enjoyment while playing. And the last thing but certainly not the least is being a part of this community and having been to various outings, I’ve met a bunch of great people and had great experiences. Golf is much more fun with friends than by myself or paired up with strangers. 
    • Yeah, I get there every year, or more, but it still seems like yesterday that we were all together, relative strangers for a day, good friends just a couple of days later.  This year, I'll be spending 3 weeks at Talamore, 1 week with a group of guys, the second week for Thanksgiving with my wife, and then staying another week in order to attend the USGA Rules Workshop at Pine Needles.  I'll be interested to try the Top Tracer, and to see the new short-game area at Talamore.  
    • It only seems like about a month ago...oh wait, cause I've been going every August since then. 😉 We moved our annual Myrtle Beach trip to Talamore because of how awesome this event was and have not looked back. https://coachjimsc.wixsite.com/talamore2022 Also Talamore has added Toptracer to the driving range and our group was picked to be the first guinea pigs. Talamore Golf Resort (@talamoregolfresort) • Instagram reel Talamore Golf Resort shared a post on Instagram: "📅 Opening Day 📅 Toptracer range officially opens Friday, September 9th. 🔘 For now, all times must be booked in advance by calling the Talamore Villa Office at...
