Pure shot routine

anthony p

Does anyone else follow the same exact pure shot rout before every shot?  I always make sure to try and do the same exact thing before every shot - deep breath, clear my head, focus only in ball, practice swing until I feel I get the perfect swing, then replicate the feeling of the perfect swing when I go to hit.  Don't do this out of superstition, more out of just trying to consistently do the same thing is it so good swings become second nature

    Good points Anthony.  I pratice my routine until it becomes comfortable and not so TIME consuming.  There are times out in the battle when you are so focused, that you need to gett out of your own way, and basically let it happen...  Then there are times when you play with people who take an hour over a pre-shot routine, only to dribble it down the hazard line.  Keep praticing a routine that WORKS for you, then make sure it is respectful of your player companion time.

    Anthony your taking the right approach...Always try to keep your routine the same with all clubs...The only thing I would change is at address....I never think about hitting the ball...I vision the shot and think about the target I want to launch too...I also want the ball to get in the way of my swing...I look 1/2 in. in front of the ball with iron's so it will get in my swing-path.. On golf channel they had Snedeker's routine for Driver/Irons and putter , all 3 where 13 sec. from approach to impact...Less and smooth

    Thanks!  I am guessing my setup takes maybe 20 seconds at the most.  I try to focus on the ball because I used to me pick my head up and hit it about 2 feet, so focusing on the ball makes sure my heads stays down and I get smooth contact.
