    I have done a lot of these but one I simply haven't done since High School is number 16.

    "AIMING AT NOTHING - Harvey Penick's final marching order to his tournament-bound students was: "Take dead aim." It wasn't a slogan so much as a warning. If you don't aim the clubface and check alignment on every shot, don't be surprised if the ball doesn't do what you had in mind."  

    My high school coach gave me Harvey Penick's Little Red Book and to this day I have taken the "Take Dead Aim" approach on all shots.  This doesn't mean fire at every stick, to me it means pick a very specific target and direct your focus there, do not focus on the what ifs involved. The same rule should be applied for your range sessions, pick your target and hit it there, do not just rifle balls.

    A few.. But gotta say Hackel is a blithering idiot... White belts look great, have confidence and match it appropriately!

    Hackel is a hack, not that i'm a fashion guru but this guy's comments always amuse me.

    Not all but most ........ I do not agree with the white belt comments by Hackel. I have seen some of his favorite outfits and some are hideous

    Not sure if I agree with Nbr 3 -- Wearing Black Socks with khakis?

    So what if I wear black shoes and black shirt with khakis?

    About 2/3rds at some point in my life (although nowadays that number is far lower).

     Socks should match slacks......wear khaki/black/white argyles and really make a fashion statement........

    So True!!!

    I can't even begin to make a list of all of the mistakes I have made and continue to make (in golf and everywhere else for that matter).  I have to admit that it was an entertaining reading though...

    Real good tip and a bad habit to not follow.  Easy to try to slap at the ball and need to swing with a purpose on every swing.
