View Full Version : A tip for pre-shot routines

Long time no post, and I've started playing more over winter break. I found I lost concentration very easily, but was shooting great when my mind was in the right place.

So, I found a way to keep be focused on the task at hand. I've always (at least since Scott taught me) taken 3 practice strokes, paused and shot, counting 1-2-3 in my head. Now I do the same but think con-cen-trate to myself instead. This little mantra has helped tons. If you use 2 strokes you could think fo-cus. This helps with rushing shots too. It's hard to say concentrate a 100 miles/hr and not stop and think after you do- something's wrong. Anyway, thought this might be helpful to some...cheers

Lengthening the last segment(con-cen- trate/fo- cus) smooths out the nerves also. It works on numbers but you gotta think more at the end...sid
