Any time I’m faced with a must make shot, I try to dig deep and find a pure golf swing. What I mean by that is a swing that relies on the decades of golf experiences I’ve had. I don’t believe it’s possible to try and make a great swing. I just have to let it happen. Muscle memory can achieve incredible things, but first I have to get the brain out of the way. Too much thinking can disrupt my athletic ability. The best shots come from instinct. If I can visualize the result I want, focus on my setup, and let my body just react then things usually turn out pretty well. This is true for so many golfers. We just have to let our swing do the work.
