Tip Tuesday – Pre-Shot Routine

Becoming a good golfer is as much about having a strong mental game as it is about having a reliable golf swing.

One of the best things you can do to start developing a golfer’s mind is with a strong pre-shot routine.

A pre-shot routine is a structured series of actions or thoughts that ensures both physical readiness and mental focus before a golf shot.

Golf is a game of minute variables, from shifts in wind to subtle changes in stance.

By standardising a pre-shot process, we can create a controlled environment amid these variables, leading to more predictable outcomes.

In other words, a consistent shot routine will help you hit better shots more frequently.

Watch any video of Tiger hitting a golf shot over the years. The pre-shot routine will be the same each time.

Even down to the timing of the routine. It’s the same every single time.

And it’s not just Tiger Woods that does it.

Look at any top player on the PGA Tour or DP World Tour. They’ll all have a pre-shot routine which is repeatable down to the millisecond.

So when they’re faced with a tough drive or an iron shot over water, they can instinctively follow a routine and get into the “zone”.

Here’s the format that I like to follow for my routine:

  • Keep it short, no longer than 10 seconds from start to hitting the shot
  • Pick your target and visualise it throughout
  • Use a cue to initiate the routine e.g. tap the ground with your club
  • Make it simple and easy to replicate consistently

Ultimately, it’s down to personal preference, as long as it’s short and easy to repeat, it doesn’t really matter.

So the next time you’re at the driving range, have a think about building your pre-shot routine.

Once you’ve decided on what it will be, practice it until it becomes natural.

And when it becomes natural, you won’t even have to think about doing it out on the golf course.

Try it out and watch your scores drop.
