Poll: Do you employ a swing thought(s)?Swing thought

Thanks Thrillhouse, I now have to explain to my co workers why I was laughing so hard.
To the OP. I dont have a thought during my swing. It is during my set up I tell myself to be smooth. After I choose my shot and line it up, it is just fire away. I do really well with it.
I pretty much envy people like you who can do that. Maybe I'm not naturally talented enought for that method. I seem to require engagement of my conscious mind (distraction?) while swinging a club in order to keep at bay the urge to KILL THE BALL.
I don't know how I do it. I have always been very mechanical in since that I feel how the mechanics felt in my practice swing and majority of the time can recreate it without thinking about it.
I still have to fight the urge of killing the ball. Slowly but surely that urge is leaving me.

I began to have a lot more luck with an active mind during my shot. I recently got some clarity on what I was doing from Utley's book, "when you have the strong local station tuned in, you aren't hearing the static and chatter from the other weaker stations on the dial."
Basically if your thinking actively about one thought (in my case a couple thoughts) then it's harder for those 80 other thoughts to come in.

Mostly during practice .
If I do think of swing i do it just before I take the club out of the bag, once I take the club out it's all feel.
I will put the club back in the bag if i have doubt or too many swing thoughts and reset.
