We all have been fooled by a short term 'groove' one time or the other.

Golf is hard, but the one thing that is singularly the most frustrating i.e., regression, is often of one's own doing - regardless of how convinced you are, you simply did NOT accumulate enough critical mass of correct practice to 'groove' anything.

Remember 'grooving' a move is not just 'grooving' a move by itself, it also means elimination of 'competing' patterns which are more instinctive that are still deeply ingrained in us.

I think it takes hundreds of thousands of balls of practice to groove a difficult move like shallowing a club AND completely alienate/eliminate a competing move or moves (like coming over the top) at the same time. In my experience the later part is much harder and it really takes much much much longer than you think.
