    #1CHILL OUT!!!!!

    #2You're probably just in a slump right now, it happens to everybody. Just keep playing, it'll work itself out.

    #3Find someone who you can take lessons from AND STICK WITH THEM. Dont change to someone else because everyone is going to have a different opinion.

    #4HAVE SOME FUN. Play a couple fun rounds with some friends and just relax.

    #5Cant make a comment on the swing setter.

    I have a Swingsetter, It has helped a bit with tempo and somewhat with aim. On one of the pics on this site from the Fields Tourney, Michelle Wie had one in her bag on the range. It does work but you have to put some time into it.



    Have fun with golf. You'll never conquer it. Try to relax and go back to the basics. And if you have an instructor, stick with ONE and the same one. If you are not comfortable with his/her instructions, find someone who you feel comfortable with. Relax and have fun.

    whats your handicap now?

    i thinks it more to do with you're mental side by the sounds of it? a player that was off 2 and doesnt think he knows how to swing the club? you just make it more tough on yourself by saying that

    My first advice to you is to quit playing the golf swing and start playing golf. There is a big difference between the two. Find a teacher and stick with him.I also highly recommend that you read golf is not a game of perfect by Dr. Bob Rotella and only work on your swing on the range and not on the course.

    Hope this helps.

    I would totally reccomend getting ZEN GOLF. It is the best book for the mental game and helped me reach places I've never been golf wise. Also, don't worry, I'm in a slump too, but I'm still playing better than most around me and you probably are too.

    I'd also recommend reading Fearless Golf by Gio Valiante. He is the mental coach for the golf channel and is a college professor. I really benefitted from that book.

    being comfortable with your coach is key, if your seeing all thouse big name guys (im not saying they dont know what their doin) but they see a lot of guys, good ones. Maybe try a new teaching pro who has never seen your swing, get a few lessons, learn to trust him. If you respect/trust your coach and work at what hes telling you, that works well.

    and take it easy, play for fun for a little while.
