Describe Your Warmup?

Recommended Posts

I've always been a systems guy. I like to have a set way to do things in my life. It let's me set the bar and feel like I can control the variable to get the best possible performance out of myself.

 

Take golf for example, I have been tweaking with a warm up routine for years to get prepped for the course. We all have experienced the times where we get to little time and are stiff for the first four holes just like I'm sure we are all familiar with being at the course way too long ahead of teeing off and getting tired halfway through your round.

 

So, looking for a little inspiration, I'm curious what you guys do? What does your routine look like?

I'll be the simple guy - 1/2 hour early, get shoes on, pack the cart, set up a scorecard.

 

Hit a few putts on the practice green to see how they roll today.

 

Pull out the driver and stretch out my back with some rotations followed by slow-mo swings.

 

Once my shoulders and back are done popping, take a few real swings.

 

I'm ready to go.

This is typically me for a casual round. Hit some putts, a few swings and some very light stretching.

 

For a tournament though I get there 45mins-1hour early, putt for about 15-20 mins and then hit range balls. Lots of wedges to loosen up, then 9,7,4, rescue, driver. Then whatever club I'm hitting off the first hole so usually a few more drivers.

90% of my rounds...Make a drink in the garage. Drive to course. Quickly stretch on the first tee and hit 2 junk balls in to the woods. Good to go.

 

If I have more time I'll hit half a bucket with wedges and 9 irons. Then maybe 4-5 drivers and go to the bar.

if I can hit balls I do... so many moving parts with the swing....got to figure out what is out-of-sequence for the day.  :)

 

Have a buddy who is a member of the fancy-pants club in town with amazing practice facilities; free balls...as many as you want...I show up an hour early.

 

irons/couple of drives/chips/putts... got to get that muscle memory thing organized.

I got something to say then I'm gonna say it.

For a normal casual round, I'll start with some stretches, for back, legs, and shoulders.  Then slow to full swings with an 8 or 9-iron, full swings with a 5 or 6, just a couple with a 19 hybrid, and maybe a half-dozen with a driver.  Then going down, a few 5/6, a few 8/9.  Then putting, some shorties (under 5') and some lags.  If I have time, a couple more drivers on my way to the first tee.  Sometimes I'll hit 2 or 3 drivers off the deck, I find its good practice in keeping dead steady through the swing, and it builds confidence.

 

Before tournaments, however, I'll do it a little different.  I'll start with putting, mostly lags, then some chipping, a variety of shots from both rough and fairway.  Then some stretching and off to the range, pretty much the routine I outlined above, back to the putting green for both make-able putts (say 6 feet and in) and lags (30 feet or more).  As before, I like to end with just a couple of drivers on my way to the first tee.

I do everything slow. Almost methodical in a lighter sense. Will walk from locker to first tee in slow motion. Take out club and put tee in ground in slow motion. Than before I strike that sucker I stand their and gloat. I will survey my surroundings like I own the place. Enjoying and Reveling in the moment. After doing this for 45 minutes , I'm more than ready to accept what the day will bring

First I do some stretching and make a few swings with my skilz swing trainer. Then I hit a few chip shots to get a feel for distance then I do the same with putting. Finally I hit a few drives off toward the range and then i'm off and running.

This sums up my warmup when I go to my home course.  When I go to a different course like I did for 2 weeks in Phoenix, I will spend up to an hour on the putting and chipping greens.

I get to the course an hour early, stretch, warm up hitting wedges, and go through the bag hitting short,mid and long irons through woods, then to the putting surface to get a feel for the speed of the greens then off to the first tee. I usually research the course and try to formulate a plan of attack but throw that plan out the window after the first tee shot, lol.

FYI, the brain doesn't understand negatives; it reads your plan as "hit it OB." You are better off saying don't hit it in the fairway! [emoji3]

These days it seems I roll out of the car and hit the locker room. Proceed to the range and assess my hangover then decide if I want to nap or hit balls. Not exactly how I should prepare for a round. Then again I have been in Vegas for ten days and counting so it is kind of the norm out here.

Well it depends on if the course I play has a range. If it does and I have the time I'm there 45-60 min before my round. Start with some light stretching then I'll go 5 half swing with PW 5 full swings with PW then 7i for 5-10 swings depending on how my back is. Once it feels warm I move to 5i 20*H 3 wood Driver then I take a few more swings with the 7i. Depending on how much time I have I may go through the first hole in my head. Then off to the practice green for chipping and putting. I try to leave at least 15-20 min to get a feel around the green. Lately though with my schedule it has been park stretch first tee so sometimes the first few holes are rough.

HA HA HA what the  :o  is a warm up????

 

Get to the course, pay for the round, get a cart, drive back to the truck, load bag, put on shoes and head to the first tee.

 

Although, when I'm with Theoo, I tend to shank a few range balls beforehand because he shames me into it.

First, head to the range and hit half a dozen or so half speed shots with a 7/8 iron just simply focusing on hitting the damn ball. Then I'll stretch. Back, legs, shoulders, and especially the glutes (gotta get them activated like Tiger says).

 

Then I'll grab a wedge and hit 7-10 shots going up every other club from the wedge I started with.

 

After I've hit a couple solid drives I head over to the chipping area and get some feel for the high flyers, bump n runs, chips, and pitches. Maybe drop into the bunker for a few sand shots.

 

Then I'll head over to the putting green and do "around the world" (where you putt from 4, 5, and 6 feet at 90* angles from each other) a couple times. Once that's done I'll hit a few lags from the middle of the green to the fringe not aiming just getting a feel for lag.

 

After that I walk to the first tee saying a prayer to the golf God's the whole way.

I've learned through time to keep my warm up the same whether a tournament or casual round.

 

Here it is. Drop the club's off at the rack or if it's at my club arrange for them to be out. Park far from the club house. Walk from the car to the club house. Get my shoes and sunscreen on, check in, walk to the range and do a series of stretches.

 

Hit some gentle wedges, half a dozen or so. Hit a couple of full wedges, 9 irons and 8 irons. Hit a few drivers. Go hit a few chips and putts and off to the first tee.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.
