Jack Nicklaus referred to his visualization process as “Going to the Movies”. He described it as follows… Visualizing the ball’s ultimate resting place forms the opening scene. This is followed by a travelogue in which I imagine how it will get there. The finale in my mind’s eye features the setup and swing I’ll need to effect a happy ending. JACK NICKLAUS • Nicklaus did not merely visualize the flight of the ball, he visualized the entire play – which included himself swinging the golf club (or putter) in the appropriate manner. • Nicklaus said he would not attempt a putt before he first saw it going into the hole. He said he never missed a putt in his mind. • Albert Einstein famously stated, “Imagination is more important than knowledge. It’s a preview of life’s coming events ”.
