Shd we not think or recollect what the coach said? Or try to remember what we did right the last time before we take that initial swing?
I do that and often times mishit and ended up having to take a mulligan... Sad
Or shd we clear our minds, just align to target, take up address, take a deep breath and simply n intuitively hit the ball?

There was one saturday morning when I was at Green Fairway range and Lee (lady coach) was giving lessons. I overheard her saying to the students that they should only have 1, at most 2, swing thoughts during the takeaway. She then asked me how many thoughts I have and I replied NONE.

i think it all depends on how seasoned a golfer u are. if u are just starting out in the game, u r bound to have a lot of swing thoughts. it's not necessarily a good or bad thing. it's just part of the natural learning process.

but once your swing has stabilised, then you would naturally have less or few swing thoughts.

I try to only have 1 swing thought - focus on making good impact.

I agreed with bro scottycollector though.

I still remember the time when my coach told me. " Now, from today onward. I want you to forget all that I have taught you for the passed months " and I replied "What ???" scratch

So, now it only one though in my mind " just hit this f**king ball over THERE " usually it work. If I am thinking of " need to hit a fade, a draw or slice this ball THERE" I am going to screw it ...

No lah, I forgot to bring my brain along on that day. Or was it a day when I was a nut case? But on a serious note, that was range and I usually don't think much when I swing. On course will be a different story altogether. I will probably think more than what Jeff has posted in his picture. HELP

I'll think about fundamental ( set up and algnment) mostly as it's the most important part of the swing . I might had another key though if i work on my swing with my coach and we try to achieve something specific with my swing flaw. I'll rehearse it during the practice swing to try just think of the target during the swing
