If you want to play your best, it really helps to get out of your own way so that you can get the most out of your game and play with as much confidence as you can.
Having clarity over a shot means having a clear picture of where you want to send the ball and how it’s going to get there. It’s very important to have a positive target. If you’re worried about avoiding a hazard, you’ll make an avoiding swing.
The keys to clarity are a clear feel of the shot you want to hit and the swing you want to make coupled with a positive target — take the hazards into account, but then pick your positive target.
