  1. I totally get you on the hurting your muscle memory. At one point I was driving reasonably well. When it came to the big shots I usually went for direction and position rather than distance.
    However, I changed strategy and started to go for distance. My game began to disimprove, but as it got worse I started to intensify my efforts to get distance. my game fell apart for well over 6 months until I had to hire a coach to find out what was going on. He took me to the driving range and pinpointed the problem within minutes. He got me to shorten the distance and slowly but surely my game came back. He then educated me as to how I could increase my distance gradually, over time, and without the intensity.

  2. I totally agree. Gentle repetition can make a big difference to your muscle memory. It is the same throughout any exercise or sport.

    If you keep doing the same thing the body gets used to it and that is why when exercising for fitness the professionals encourage you to do different exercises to reduce muscle memory and promote better results.

    Great tip.
