That’s what the Goodboys call Thursday nights before Goodboys Invitational weekend gets underway. Courtesy of “Vegas” Clark, here is what substitutes for sugarplum fairies dancing in every Goodboy’s head as he tries to sleep tonight:

I look good in the three-putt hat
Keep your head down
Look at the back of the golf ball
Check your V’s on your grip (align with shoulders)
Weight on the balls of your feet
Knees Bent and bend maintained throughout the swing
3:1 ratio of speed of backswing to downswing
Light grip pressure
Hands slightly forward at address
Align feet, hips and shoulders
Club head pointed to sky half way through backswing
Club head pointed at target at top of back swing
Right elbow tucked to body during downswing
Shoes tied
Fly zipped up
Release the club head through the ball by rotating the wrists
Head stays behind the ball throughout the swing
Left shoulder up to elevate the shot
Left shoulder down to de-loft the shot
Play the ball back in the stance to keep it low
Play the ball forward in the stance to hit it high
Check the wind direction and alter alignment accordingly
Swing easy when it is breezy
The sand gets the ball out of the bunker not the club
Align left of target for flop shots
Beer on ice at least one hour before the round begins
Tip cute cart girls more than ugly cart girls
Repair ball marks
I look good in the three putt hat
Rotate around your core.
The swing is an ellipse not a circle
Full body turn and shoulder rotation to build swing speed
Don’t walk in others line of putt
Don’t use an umbrella in a thunderstorm
Release hips during downswing along the target line
Belt buckle finishes pointing at target
Swing inside out for a hook
Swing outside in for a slice
Choke up on the longer club to reduce distance when in between clubs
Mark balls for competitive play
Replace your divots
Play less break when greens are fast
Wash balls frequently
Have balls kissed for luck
I look good in the three-putt hat

And for those who require their information more visually:

If you’re not able to catch the Goodboys Invitational on your local CBS Sports affiliate, don’t worry, I’ll be blogging recaps at the end of each day. Stay tuned for all the Goodboys Invitational 2013 coverage you’ll need.
