Well we all do it.  Think too much.  Thoughts will race through your head over the ball at address and maybe as you are swinging.  We tell ourselves to stop, but yet doubt, fear, indision, and confusion will all cause us to  be miserable, hit bad shots, and exhaust ourselves.  I use the term, "Leonard Nemoy", "In Search Of".  If you are old enough to remember that program.  We are searching for the correct feel, grip, alignment, ball position, etc.  WELL STOP!.


Develop a routine.  Talk yourself through a checklist to get the same set up each time.  Alignment, Posture, Ball Position, and maybe one swing thought through the swing.  The same each time.  THE SAME.  Do not change just because you hit a bad shot.  You are going to hit bad shots.  Period.  Everyone does, yes even the pros.  That is why you have a short game.  So choose your routine and stick to it.  You will notice consistency, comfort, and then confidence.  Yes confidence.
