Doesn't Hogan teach that while actually swinging during play (and I assume even at the range) one should forget the mechanics. Observe and think while performing drills then trust the results of the drills. Yeah that's pretty Zen. Especially on the LTOBG tape where he suggest putting with your eyes closed. Anyway the thread you refered to should now be below both of these messages. Way too much anger going on there.

Keep it simple. Do the drills, try it out while focusing on the target, didn't work, try the drills some more. With SA/NG we now have a variety of simpler solutions.

Just rambling, thanks for your time.
