Golf Tips - Develop a Pre-Shot Routine

By Larry O. Krupp

The first tee can be an intimidating and nervous experience. Welcome to the human race. That is why you must have a pre-shot routine. This helps you prepare your mind and body for what you are about to do. The better focused you are, the less other things will bother you. This may sound redundant, but be consistent in your pre-shot routine. After completing your pre-shot routine, you must focus on your swing thought. When your swing is working properly, your swing thought will be target-oriented, either swinging through your intermediate target or visualizing the shape of your shot and where you want it to land, enabling your body to recreate the shot. When your swing is not working properly, your swing thought may need to be related to a feel that will enable your body to create the shot. For example, if the clubface is open (ball slicing), feel sooner hand rotation. *

Toeing Downhill Putts You can hit downhill putts off the sweet spot or the toe of the putter but be aware the former will get the ball rolling very fast while the latter allows for putter face rotation
Start The Ball Straight Eliminate the need for your ball to have sidespin by strating it at the target line and keeping it straight, which also helps increase the backspin
Aiming Lines On Putters The lines on the head of your putter effect your aim, no lines aims up right, a top line a little more left, a bottom line more left and three lines the most to the left
