Video Golf Tip | Practice Routine

I hear the same story from a lot of my students, they tell the same thing, and basically it goes like this. They hit great shots on the range but they have trouble taking what they are doing on the range and transferring it to the golf course. If that is the case then to me they are not practicing properly. Whenever I work with a student on the range here is what I have them do for every shot. For every shot they are going to come up to the ball and take one full practice swing without the ball. One full practice swing and try to brush the grass. Next I am going to have them put the club down behind the ball, heel toe and sole flat on the ground. I am going to have them put their feet together, then I am going to have them spread their feet apart right under their shoulders. Then I am going to let them rip the ball. Now before they hit another shot I am going to have them do exactly the same thing. They will put their ball up there. They will go ahead and take their practice swing. They are going to set their club down first, the feet second and then they are going to hit the ball. I will have them do that with every shot they hit. Why? Because I want them to practice the way they are going to hit the ball when they get out on to the golf course. The only thing that I have to add on to that is basically with a pre shot routine is have them walk back here and start from behind their ball because they have been working on their full routine for most of the day. If you are having trouble translating your great shots on the range to the golf course pick up this new practice routine and I am sure that it will help you out.
