Every shot you hit, you can use a routine to prepare you for your shot (please do it in a reasonable amount of time!)


You have complete control of the content, quality and consistency of your routine.


The content, quality and consistency increase dramatically when you spend focused time building your routine at the range... before you test it on the course.


Every tour pro has a routine they have spent hundreds of hours training... most with the help of their mental game coaches.


Routines are often very different for each individual player.


However...

Being focused means you are in the present moment and nothing can pull you out of that present moment.


Focus and presence are like muscles.


You need to strengthen them or distractions will overcome you (especially pressure which is a results-based focus as opposed to a process-based focus).


The most common distractions are thoughts and emotions.


Both pull you out of the present moment.

Sports science research tells us it is critical that you are directing your focus to a picture or a feel that is related to the target.


Directing your focus to pieces of the swing or swing thoughts... triggers the wrong systems in your brain and your body.


Imagine writing your signature thinking of positions of your knuckles or movement of your elbow.


Picture or feel the target related cue you have tested for maximum trust... then let the swing happen.


Never try to make it happen.


When you try to make it happen you are trying to control something that is going to happen as opposed to paying attention to something that is happen.

Accessing the peak mental state will give you the ability to access the highest level of skill that you have trained for your swing (or close to it).


Poor or inconsistent access to the peak mental state gives you poor or inconsistent access to the level of skill you've trained in your swing.


As you can imagine... It takes time to build an effective routine that works for you and that you can trust under pressure.


It is worth the time.


Every small piece of improvement in your routine gives you better access to the mental state that will help you hit better shots more often.

There is a LOT of research proven and athlete tested training to help you do it.


My goal is to make sure you understand the important parts of that research relative to you... and that you know how to apply it to your training and to your playing.
