There Are No Good Swing Thoughts

If you're thinking about anything other than your target when looking down at your golf ball you are doomed to fail. "Head down, left arm straight, etc." will get you nowhere fast on the golf course, that's for sure. The most you can hope for at that point is to be slightly disappointed. On the range? Maybe, but only long enough to get the feeling in your swing that you'll need to be able to call up on demand once you're actually playing the game for real. Target, target, target--that's all you can afford to think about when you're in the process of swinging the golf club when it really counts.
