Golf Tips by our General Manager Rick Durham, PGA

Positive Steps for Your Pre-Shot Routine

Written by Rick Durham.

Today's tip is on the proper mentality to have with your pre-shot routine.  In other words, give yourself the opportunity to
have the best outcome for each shot by having the correct mentality pre-shot:
See It >  Feel It > Trust It > Do It > **
See It:  Visualize the shot you intend to play
Feel It:  Use your practice swing to "feel" the swing that will produce the intended shot
Trust It:    You must commit 100% to the swing
Do It:      Swing the club in the most natural & tension free way possible...  Think of how relaxed you are on the warm-up range
** from PGA Incorporating Effective Swing Changes, the Mental Game
 In other words, go through the various options and choose the shot that you can commit
to that would give you the best possible outcome on each and every shot. 
Make practice swings to feel that swing.  Choose a small target.  Commit to the swing and
the target you have chosen.  Now make an effortless and confident swing towards that target!!
