Golf Pre Shot Routine Tips

Having a repeatable golf pre shot routine will improve the consistency of your golf swing, help quiet your mind before each shot and help you lower your golf scores.
All the pros have a unique golf pre shot routine that works for them. You don’t have to copy any particular pre shot routine, but you must have a consistent and concise golf pre shot routine if you want to improve your game and lower your golf scores.

Bad Golf Pre Shot Routine Habits:

The average high handicap golfer takes way too long to hit his/her shot on the course. This causes them to over think and over analyze each shot. They start thinking about: grip, stance, head position, left arm position etc.
If this is you you need to stop analyzing so much on the course. You need to keep these thoughts on the range, when you are on the course it’s time to just let it happen.

All of that thinking about every shot allows TENSION to creep into your body, causing all sorts of problems for your swing. A lot of golfers analyze until the are paralyzed. They have so many thoughts going through their head they can’t even take the club away for their backswing.

Oh, I’ve been there myself it’s no fun.
