Pre Shot Routines


As we all know, to play golf well there are lots of things we need to think about and get under control. This can be difficult for many players because they do not have a routine or plan to tackle these thoughts.

The aim of a pre shot routine is to give you a thinking  process to help with processing your golf thoughts effectively. When watching the best players in the world, before every shot they hit they have a routine that enables them to process everything required to play a desired shot, whilst managing their emotions.

A popular routine format used is the “think box” and “play box” method.
This one was used by Annika Sorenstam. It separates the pre-shot routine into the “thinking” and the “playing”.

Once you’ve decided on your strategy and shot, your thinking is done and it’s time to play. Then you can take your practice swings (thinking about nothing but that shot and that target) and get yourself aligned. Try to train your brain to do this and catch yourself if you don’t. Once you cross the imaginary line between the “think box” and the “play box” it’s all about trusting your body and focusing on the target.

The shot routine doesn’t finish there. When you’ve finished your shot, you can throw in a deep breath or make something like putting the club in the bag as the signal that the shot is over and you have to accept it and switch off until your routine starts again. There’s no benefit to thinking about the next shot either, until you are up at the ball.
There are plenty of examples of negative thinking in golf but here are a few:

“I need to make a par here because…”
“I thinned that last chip, so on this one I must…”
“If I keep this run going I could shoot…”
“These guys are way better than me, this is going to be embarrassing…”

The ideal thoughts you should have when processing your shot include “what do I want to do?” and “how am I going to do it?”, and make sure it positive!!
 
Give this a try.
