Which move changed your game for good?

And I moved from the whites to the golds! I still hit the ball pretty accurately, just not as far! I'm 65, so why should I?

More good golfer in their golfing life found a key move that change their game.

Do you have any which has revolutionized your game for good?

I haven't found mine yet, Have you?

It's hard to find just one or two.

1 - Swing and contact and video - Just taking a couple lessons changed everything for the first time starting with the Gary Player drill and then going from there.  The basics....whodathunkit?

2 - Shaping and controlling and just plain freaking understanding what's going on - Trackman (and this website actually) - physics is real - face and path actually does mean something significant, uplofting and delofting are powerful tools - if anyone says otherwise, then they are just plain wrong.

3 - Short game - discovering what a pitch and a chip were - changed my game - I was clueless (more than now)

4 - Putting - I have no freaking clue, but incrementally things are starting to gel.....

5 - REAL GOLF - discovering Siracha instead of tobasco for Bloody Mary's

Bringing my left shoulder under my chin on the back swing, (without dipping, keeping my head steady, and my left arm straight).

A decade ago I overdid the "connection" thing which led to an overly rotational takeway and and inside swing back that introduced to me the joys of "getting stuck."

That stupid move changed my game for good.  Felt so good, worked so, so bad.

To this day, I almost never practice without "railroad tracks;" my tour sticks laying down and me making sure to hinge my arms UP and never back and obsessing over the move away from the ball.

God I hate that move.  Like a former smoker, I can't even look at a player who takes it away inside.

I meant "former smoker can't stand to be around cigarettes..."

Trying to find the "edit" button... not working for me.

For me it was my Putting. I was real good at putting the ball with in 6 inches with my first put. I thought my ball was afraid of the dark or something. A gentleman I waqs playing with told me don't get in such a hurry to putt  He got me to walk away from the putt and take a breath, and then line it up. I started to make putts instead of leaving myself with a tap in. It's amazing to me how one stupid thing can affect your game like that. :-D.
