In each lesson I give, I begin by asking the individual in front of me why they have come to see me.  In most instances, they are there to improve on a particular flaw in their swing, or to improve on a specific area of their game.  My next question is usually, “So what is it that you do when you are playing your best golf?”  The answer is always along the lines of “I wish I knew.”
