Build a Sound Warm-Up Routine

From Justin Parsons On July 27, 2022
Ask any tour pro and they'll tell you that their pre-round warm-up is very different than their typical practice session. Generally speaking, in practice, the focus is on improving technique and swing... mechanics. This is never something you want to focus on as you prepare for a round of golf. When you play, you need to have your mind calm and free, not obsessing over club positions and swing thoughts.

That time leading up to your first tee shot should be about two things – getting your body loose and ready to swing the club, and getting your mind prepared for the specific challenges you're about to face on the course. As Titleist staff member Justin Parsons shares in this video, the warm-up should be reserved for getting you into play mode, as prepared physically and mentally as you possibly can in order to play your best over the course of the next several hours. If you follow Justin's advice and develop a pre-round routine that warms up your body warm and focuses your mind, you'll have won half the battle before you even hit your first tee shot.
