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

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.

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 don't know if it is a dumb injury but I have had three lower back surgeries the last of which was very successful. I've been playing for a few years with little to no pain as long as I ride for the 18. Anyway the other day I was playing, went to hit my 3W and topped the ball HARD! It sent a shock wave straight into my back and doubled me over, couldn't straighten up for a while. Have had lower back stiffness and some pain ever since. If it doesn't go away soon it is off to see a doctor. All because I topped a ball, go figure.
    • Great to play with friends ever week. I'm in a league with about 50 men and women and we play every Tuesday. All play about the same, some a little better some not so good, but we're there to have fun. We also kick in money each week, besides greens fees, a little goes to some prize money, but the most goes to help a homeless shelter and a home for battered women.  We play a best ball scramble so the game moves along quickly and we don't hold anyone up, plus we all want to get to the 19th hole. Given we're all older folks we play it forward, again to speed up the game. Bottom line, we're all into the game and play by the rules that we have set up. It is great fun and we all look forward to the next Tuesday. 
    • I'm sure that many name-brand "designer" courses today just use distinctive elements preferred by the named designer. The named designer might just show up for a photo op one day on the course. There is a Gary Player course in Connecticut (Lyman Orchards) that has photos of Gary putting on one of the greens. Truth is, he just flew in by helicopter one day, got out, and hit a mid iron to the green, putted out and left for a tournament in Westchester. Probably had little or nothing to do with the actual planning and design of the course. But I do think Ross was more of a "hands on" guy.
    • Thanks to @boogielicious & @iacas.  This helps a lot.  I'll work on it.
