Response to Clearkey?

 
is process and a tool that allows the golfer to eliminate the distraction of conscious mechanical swing thoughts from your game ( swing ).

The basic idea is that all motor activity is best left to the subconscious for executing and this is in fact what we do in every day life.....we brush our teeth, drive our cars...type these words I am typing now...tie our shoes...shave our faces - all without giving any conscious thought to the activity we are doing. Then we grab a golf club and we tie our selves up in all manner of conscious commands and directives...cleverly disguised as swing tips, swing keys etc and we try and make a golf swing.

So the clearkey occupies your conscious mind with thoughts other than golf so that the execution and direction happens on automatic like the other things we do. So if you have a swing you prefer, that you hit the ball well with - practice that swing four times giving conscious thought to the swing....then make four swings while saying your clearkey. Before these swings though, give yourself a practice swing to "program" your subconscious. Then tell yourself your are switching to automatic and begin repeating your clearkey until you have hit the ball and are in your finish. This gives your subconscious the opportunity to "learn on the fly", and you will imprint the motion in a shorter time frame.

By executing your swing while saying your clearkey, your subconscious is freed to pick the motor nuero path it finds best suited to the task. so the more ingrained your motor pathway, the more consistent you become. Likewise, if you have not very well developed habits, the subconscious can only use what is there...

I made a couple videos on using clearkeys:
