Video Golf Tip | Three-Step Pre-Shot Routine

Well we left the hard work of the practice tee behind us, we are out on the golf course and we are going to enjoy ourselves. But we enjoy ourselves more when we hit good shots and good shots should be a matter of routine. Virtually everyone in golf knows to stand behind the ball to start the routine. Picture the shot you are going to hit. I always like to add in a feeling. I would like to add in the feeling that I am going to use to visualize the shot and visualizing the feeling together puts me in to the technical phase and the production phase, phase one. Once I have that in my mind, I then move on to phase two. As I move into phase two I am going to leave all the technical stuff behind the ball and I have to conjure up an awareness of the target. So I am going to think about where I am putting the clubface and where I am putting my body alignment to the target. Once I am happy about this target awareness I can forget it because I am going to move on to phase three. Phase three is recalling what I was practicing over there in phase one. It is using a simple key to get the motion going. So into phase three, I have my key, I recall the feeling and boom, let's go. Good shots on the golf course should be a matter of a good routine. Go out there, use your routine and have fun.
