Lesson 1: Pre and Post Shot Routine
A solid pre-shot routine properly prepares you before each shot giving you maximum confidence and focus over the ball. In your first lesson, I will help you discover your pre-shot routine, a repeatable process allowing you to perform your best, even under pressure.
Did you know that Rory McIroy’s pre-shot routine is 24 seconds every time? It’s that precise because it’s very important. Following a sequence of positive steps right up until your take-away is a million times better than analyzing your swing or having negative thoughts such as where you don’t want to hit it.
In this lesson, we will explore each of these 6 pre-shot routine steps:
- Analysis (course strategy and shot selection)
- and “Go!”
Finally, in your post-shot routine, you’ll learn how to build in the power of “acceptance”, so you can let go of bad shots, forget about your score and start again on the next one.
Lesson 2: Putting Mastery: Visualization, Feel and Green reading
Once you’ve learned how to set-up to the ball correctly, good putting becomes an art, not a science. You have to learn how to trust your powers of visualization, feel and commit to the putt you have chosen.
In this lesson, I’m going to show you how to read greens properly and then utilize the power of your mind so you hit every putt with confidence, eliminating any doubt.
Lesson 3: How to Warm up your Body and Mind before a round
Discover the best possible pre-game confidence booster and how to warm up your mind and body to optimize your performance. In lesson 3, I’ll show you how to warm up and talk to yourself before a game of golf. How you spend the 30 mins before a round makes a huge difference in how you perform and enjoy it. Follow these simple steps and I’ve no doubt you’ll play more enjoyable golf with a smaller number on the scorecard at the end of it.
