As a youngster, while taking lessons from Harmon Morell, my uncle and PGA Professional, I was taught that thinking too much about any shot is a huge distraction. I have found this advice to be very true.
Phil Mickelson is a great example. He is a relatively fast player but his habit of over-analyzing each shot cost him several major championships. This can happen to you also if you think too much before a shot. Don't dilly-dally, just get committed and pull the triger. Thinking about all the consequences can lead to a confidence breakdown.
