If you are struggling with your game, the first thing we suggest you do is consult a coach or instructor. The second thing you should do is develop a solid and consistent pre-shot routine. The pre-shot routine can help you do a couple of different things. Too many golfers don’t asses the situation when they get behind the ball. They look at what’s out in front, walk up to the ball and hit it. A pre-shot routine is a process in which you get your mind right and create a strategy that can help you be as successful as possible.

Creating that game plan in your mind will give you confidence and sense of calm before you hit the ball. With a pre-shot routine, you can save several strokes and better your score. Top Teacher Shawn Cox, from the Grand Golf Club in Del Mar, CA gives us a great inside look at what an efficient and consistent pre-shot routine looks like.
