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.

I'll add it above.

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 mean, maybe?  But the problem isn’t that it’s rotating from side to side. The problem is that my head is going down and forward in the backswing while my trail heel lifts. The issue is explained with pictures in the previous swing post.
    • There were two front page NYT articles today on outdoor masking. They must read TST 😆 Do We Still Need to Keep Wearing Masks Outdoors? - The New York Times Science shows that the risk of viral transmission outside is very low. The “two-out-of-three rule” can help you decide whether to mask up. They even included this handy graphic to decide when masks are necessary.  And this newsletter that makes the scientific case that masks our largely unnecessary outdoors.  The Morning: Are outdoor masks necessary? Anyway, it seems this is the first push towards helping people ease their fears and drop some masking. As the earlier article stated, it's an "off ramp" for the pandemic. If we start to ease up on protocols where it makes sense, we can start to return to normal. Very optimistic. 
    • My mother is recovering from ovarian cancer and she’s has other immune issues. She was wearing a mask out long before COVID-19.
    • Why do I picture these two from your post? Uncle Buck.
    • I guess when I wrote this would you rather I didn't realize how actually depressing either option would be. I was just thinking and wondering if my best golf was in front of me or behind me? It's the kinda shit you wonder about when you are a man of a certain age. Anyhow, I thought it was a tough question. Because I do truly feel like I'm getting better at golf. I also feel like going forward I'm going to play a lot more golf. Having written that, I no longer get to play with my dad and those are some memories I really cherish. I've had two holes in one, but to be honest those aren't in my top 10 golf memories. Don't get me wrong it's really f-ing cool to hit a hole in one. But for me its more about the people I've played with than the golf itself.  If I had to pick I think I'd take all of the memories I have. But again, it's a tough choice. If my old man's health was better I'd take memories going forward, because I'm always optimistic that the next shot or next round or next season could be the greatest one ever.
