Have you got a Pre-shot routine ?

No matter your handicap or amount of golf you play, one of the easiest ways to keep your swing tempo and distances consistent is to have a pre-shot routine. It is something that all Professionals on tour do, whether be drawn out or a quick swing of the club.

A notable candidate for his pre-shot routine is Miguel Ángel Jiménez. He always takes a practice swing first , lines up the clubhead behind the ball second, then aligns the rest of his body and makes a couple of short wrists movements behind the ball. From here he has established his tempo, target, and movement he needs to make at impact.

Next time you are on the practice range or on the tee, think about your pre-shot routine and make a concerted effort to repeat this before every shot. You will be surprised how much better your concentration and performance will be.
