I thought things like this, improving a shot of a shooter involves tering all up and starting from scratch
Not true Shifty.

I was a shooter when I played.

You get off your form sometimes, and it takes a good eye to help you see that. When it happens, you can usually work your way back to form after a bit of time.

It's not so much about thinking as it is about getting back to what makes you good to start with. Too many people think shooting is all in your head, it isn't, a lot is repetition, and once you change and repeat that a lot, a bad habit has started, it needs to be stopped.

Hard work and discipline, thats what prevails, depending upon confidence is the easy way out, and hot streaks mean nothing during crunch time. Form, repetition, hard work, and volume are what make great shooters.
