Is what a problem? I'd rather be carded with the guy who reads instructions written on a disc than the guy who pumps the disc for thirty seconds and still misses the putt.

Notes on a putter I used when I went thru a slump: Chin up, Reach, Spin it.

I believe (although darn it I can't find it in the rule book) there's something about not altering the playing conditions on the course / ahead of the lie (unless it directly affects you taking a stance, etc.), so technically placing a disc AHEAD of the lie does violate this. Wicked semantics (and I've never called anyone for such) but....

I played for years with a mini with "THINK!" written on it as large as I could make it...

About 20 years ago, we kicked around ideas for a run of inspiration minis. "Relax", "Drain it", "Bend your knees", a happy face, I can't remember now, since we didn't follow through.

I still think it's a good idea. "THINK!" would fit right in.

I think "STOP THINKING" would work better for me personally.

I prefer "Be Deliberate" but I don't think it's as catchy

Sports would be so much easier if, at will, we could switch off our conscious forebrain. Or if not switch it off, just remove it's power to interfere.

Our subconscious knows how to throw a disc or kick a ball - that's what training does, it's gets the stuff in deep so it becomes instinct. Then we just need to get our busy, chatty conscious mind to shut the *#*# up, and not get involved.

I think that's what athletes mean when they talk about being in the zone - the subconscious/instinct is in charge, and the bit that sits on top looking out from our skulls, is quiet and just along for the ride.

"Forget" would be my version.

As in, forget that 12-footer you missed 2 holes back, or you'll miss another.
