    "Flow" one round I hit 16/18 greens in regulation 15 of which were inside 20 feet. I'd say that qualifies as being in the zone.

    Pete, I disagree that 'analytical' necessarily equates to overthinking. I can be 'in the zone' while focusing entirely on correct set-up elements to create a shot shape, swing length to deliver desired distance, estimated impact on ball flight of wind speed and direction, etc. Equally, I can 'overthink' while trying to visualise the precise ball flight, landing point, roll etc. while 'feeling' the shot. Of course, while I said "can", I really meant "could" because I never actually "do". My problem is I use both sides of my brain and therefore overthink twice as much ;(

    Pete, if you haven't already, you should read Zen Golf by Jospeh Parent. That book brings mindfulness to the golf course in an easy and beautiful way.

    The zone hasn't happened for me with golf but there were days when I played uni level tennis 15 years ago where I just felt I could put the ball exactly where I wanted, particularly serving, without any mental effort at all. Same playing rugby as a goalkicker, there were days when I just did not have to think about it. Really interesting stuff.

    unless you have a completely consistent technic like tour pros this exercise would not work. Because you can be in the zone for 10 mnts straight but if your shot technic is not consistent enough you would still struggle during that moment. As a person who just recently changed his swing technic you should first get more consistent with hitting the shot shapes you want to the desired targets IMHO... The same principle applies to music. Unless you are able to own and master your exercises you can not perform them on stage perfectly when you're in the zone...

    I think a lot of golf is actually mental strength, I mean a lot of us amateurs would worry about our swings, our duffs, shanks etc but for you, despite you obviously work hard on your technique etc but I'd say if you can get the mental side working, find that happy place I think you'll see dramatic results, looking forward to seeing how this progresses, great video matey

  • Matty Blake

    I always find when I have a good round I get to the end and realise I wasn’t thinking about my swing and was just in the zone. If only we could get into the zone every time we played

  • Kay Champion

    Wow! This is mental. At today’s practice session I did deep breathing before striking each ball whilst focusing on the back of the ball (spot I want to strike) and had a GREAT practice session - I was hitting straight and even drawing the ball instead of slicing it. And then I see this video. Wow!!! Synchronicity.

    As a pool/snooker player in addition to golfing, I can fully appreciate and understand the mental side of the game. One book I read about the mental aspect of sports like this is called “Pleasures of Small Motions”. It was written billiards-specific, but has a lot of techniques I use on the course for thinking through shots, because pool and golf both have preshot routines and table/course management.

  • Chris Clark

    Recently I’ve struggled with the way I’m hitting the ball and as a way of attempting to cure poor golf I thought technically and got many things in my head before hitting a shot. I’ve realised it only puts me at a disadvantage. Great video Pete and I’m excited to try to think more about target and use the left side of my brain more.👍

    Very interesting Pete. This is an area which is definitely not covered often on instructional videos. But I am convinced this plays a large part in playing better golf. I find that I play a lot better when I focus on on one thing like turning my hips or "hitting with my left shoulder" Although these swing-thoughts might have some technical merit on their own I think the effect of freeing my mind and letting me be "in the moment"might be even bigger.

  • Tim Chamberlain

    I like the idea of this as a means to train yourself in to focusing more on the shot, but I'm nearly positive the whole right brain vs left brain things has been debunked in modern neuroscience.

    Just gonna throw this in here, but there is absolutely no evidence to suggest that there is any such thing as left or right brained. its based on a very outdated form of phrenology that has been largely debunked. My brother's a clinical physchiatrist, I thought it was a real thing but apparently its total bollocks XD

    By far my biggest mistake I always make is always having swing thoughts my entire round of golf. as soon as I get on the course they start creeping in, tough not too especially when your not striking the ball as well as you’d like to.

    Interesting subject. I remember being “in the zone” twice while playing. Those were the two times that I scored in the 70’s. I may have to pick up this device. Seems like it could help. Cheers!

  • stefon dai Thomas

    When you play rubbish you use the left side, in the zone usually happens when you play well...what I find anyway. I guess the way I need to adapt to this would be to just swing through the bad play and try not to think about swing thoughts etc.

    I was in the zone last week at our first match of the season; I wasn't thinking about golf at all, just staring at the trees, birds, clouds, etc. I went even par for 6 holes and then took an 8 on a par 5 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️ and then got analytical

    I would love to see a video with this same test using tDCS (Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation). It's in the same vein as this method but is "SUPPOSED" to speed up the learning experience and enhance focus. But, I can't say one way or the other that it's a good idea or if it works. Check out the RadioLab 9-Volt Nirvana podcast.

  • Alain Richard
    Alain Richard

    I believe I am a mix of both: I like to know how many yards to the pin, I like to work on my swing mechanics and I analyse the course (water, bunker, etc). BUT, I also think a lot about what I want my shot to look like. I see it in my head. I like to "see" what the ball will do when it's in the air and when it lands on that spot I picked in the fairway (I'm a 50/50 guy so... rough or fairway). I also "look" at player's (and mine) swing to see what it looks like without focus on technique. For example: I hate Bryson's swing. I get that there's so much going on but to me, it's not appealing. On the flip side, Westwood's swing is a beauty while I believe there is a much thought going into the shot as there would be for Bryson... Even for you Pete, I don;t like what your Driver swing looks like. But when you hit your wedges, I like it. Looks what a wedge shot looks like in my head. Anyway, love the studio, I am jealous. For real.

    It just clicked for me now, every time I go hitting balls into my backyard net, range or simulator just for the fun of it I’m not outcome driven I put a really nice smooth and overall better swing/strike compared to when I tell myself “this ball needs to go exactly 140 yards” “this ball needs to carry the bunker”, even when I’m thinking “swing smooth” its generally crap. The moral of the story, let your body do what it’s been trained to do. Because subconsciously it is capable of doing exactly what you want it to do without worrying about swing mechanics or outcomes. Great video Pete!

    Daniel Kanehman the author of 'Thinking Fast & Slow' says that flow state is actually on the ragged edge of right/left brain. This makes sense if you think about it, you need the analytical side to measure the shot and swing, but then the right side to 'see' and 'feel' the shot. I've done a lot of work and research into this, 'Zen Golf' is also another great resource, and I recommend meditating, as the state is very similar to flowstate.

    I love this Pete!!! I have tried to reduce my swing thoughts down to just one, watch the ball leave the club and these ideas you have put up really resonate and I think they will help me. Thank you and I can’t wait to see how it improves your game 👍🏼

  • thomas dodsworth

    As if. Everytime you hit a pull if you watch the brain image it just flicks for a second over to the left side and the fact you can see it and it has an impact that's crazy!!

  • aksfalcon

    Totally get the "zone" thing. I recently finally got proper cleated shoes and they've been throwing me off with my swing/confidence etc. A week or two before, I noticed that I was sometimes getting into the "zone" I guess. I would hit the ball well and pretty close to how I wanted to and how I imagined it, but I was bewildered at HOW I actually managed to do it (like mechanically). So I figured I shouldn't think about it too much and move onto the next shot I would end up hitting next.

    Hey Pete. Take a look at a technique called anchoring. It would go really well with this and is a great tool for golf.

  • Glenn Murley
    Glenn Murley

    Do you think something like this is different for pros and amateurs? Pros have and do hit many balls it’s much easier for them to rely on muscle memory/switch off and just swing plus their swings are technically much better There’s a fine balance between thinking about what you’re doing and not over thinking about what your doing though, great video 👍

    Very interesting tool and ideas. However, I do want to say the idea of left and right sided use of the brain is very controversial, for example there are no differences in the brain activity of each side for creative vs analytical personality types

  • Creamie

    Had a very similar thing when I did bowling for 15 years any time I got on the approach is follow the same setup and it put me in that "zone" where I couldn't hear anything unless someone called my name and I was focused on one point 15 foot down the lane of where I wanted the balled to pass over it's a thing but it can also be very hard to get into if you don't have that setup that can put you in it or there is something that breaks your pattern

  • Joseph

    Read Zen Golf by Joseph Parent. Comes down to pre swing thought during the game. 1.Pick your target. 2. Trust your swing .3. Have Fun. Only say those 3 things on each tee or any shot really. Practice range is different, there you can be mechanical.

    Quiet eye ..pre-shot routine, no tech thought,,,all sounds like sporting clays video. Golf and shooting sports are very similar. We use to use Bob Rottela's book "golf is not a game of perfect" for shooting sports mental game. Now that I also play golf a lot of the mental game is practiced and learned from my sporting clays training.

    How much of the improvement in focus is attributed to the data gained from the scanner and how much is due to the placebo affect of the awareness of thought process caused by wearing something? Could it be your mind is powerful enough to get similar results by concentrating fully wearing an average sweat band? Probably. Try that.
