Tuning out the noise!

Tuning grandpa's radio, in the kitchen of the old farm house in Perry, Iowa, was more a matter of tuning out the noise than tuning in the music or commodities market place report. While some music might be heard, the accompanying noise made enjoying the program aggravating.

The mind can only focus on one thing at a time. More than one thing . . . and the heart beats faster, the palms sweat, circuit breakers snap, and smoke puffs from the ears and nostrils.

Tuning in the golf swing is impossible if there is too much noise. Too many tips, too much to think about, performance anxiety, impending doom and embarrassment, the golf ball . . . are all deadly enemies of the effective golf swing. Did you notice the very powerful adjective EEEEFFFFFECTIVE golf swing?

Tune out the noise and listen to the music in your golf swing, the rhythm/tempo, the smooth power, the marvel of fluidity, and the "thoughtless" beautiful cascading waterfall and artistic presentation of a 2 second phenomenon.
