Getting Properly Set And In The Right Frame Of Mind Before Your Shot Can Make All The Difference In Your Game
Posted by Henry Brunton on
March 22, 2011

In my work with Golf Canada’s Men’s National Amateur and Development Teams, a lot of time and energy in training camps is focused on shot routines – teaching athletes to understand and implement an effective shot procedure that enables them to perform their best in competition.

Shot routine is different than the traditional pre-shot routine, where a golfer focuses almost exclusively on alignment, aim and the ball. This is important, but you need more to play your best.

An effective shot routine begins with establishing sound fundamentals in the set-up – grip, aim, ball position, stance, posture and alignment. Then the focus shifts more outwardly, as the golfer switches his or her attention from the set-up to the target.

This may seem a little too advanced for your game, but it’s not. In fact, understanding the key principles of an effective shot routine and adopting this into your game is likely to help enhance your performance on the course.

With the help of your Canadian PGA Professional, learn how to “ready," “calm," then “fire."

The purpose of establishing and implementing an effective shot routine is to ready your body and mind to execute the best golf shots that you are capable of as often as possible.

A shot routine is sound when the golfer is physically in his or her best position to make solid contact consistently. It’s also all about calming and quieting the mind and focusing on hitting the ball to a target without interference.
