I like the prep box and play box that has been discussed in the past.

 

Prep box is behind the ball ... practice swings/rhythm, etc.  2 of those.

 

Then choose the line, visualize the shot you want to hit, pick a spot 2-5 feet in front of the ball.

 

Step up to the ball.  Align clubface to spot you picked out.

Check your GPA.

G - grip

P - posture

A - alignment

 

Give one last look to the target and let er rip.

 

I used to do a practice swing next to the ball and then step forward to the ball but I never really felt like I could get good alignment that way.

I pick a spot on my line from behind the ball that's maybe 2 feet in front for alignment.

 

From there I step to my left then over to the ball and take a practice swing just feeling the club go all the way to the finish not hitting anything. Then I immediately step up to the ball, line up, and make a swing feeling just like the practice swing, not worrying about hitting the ball, just thinking about smooth tempo and picturing the target.

Pretty simple pre-shot routine for me and I keep it fairly consistent for all shots (even putts). Grab my club, stand behind the ball and grip the club, pick a target, address the ball, swing. I might add a waggle or something, but almost never make a practice swing unless I'm having to wait on playing partners or the group ahead.

My preshot routine consists of picking a line I want to hit on, putting the tee in the ground, picking a spot in front of the ball from the line I chose earlier. Stepping up and hitting the ball. I really need to incorporate a swing practice or two in there since lately, I'm feeling that the swing is out of kilter and a few swings can some what groove a better swing.

 

Post shot routine...a lot of head shaking and sometimes crying...😁😂🤣

I recently started a better pre shot routine.

 

I look for a small imperfection about 3' in front of me on my line for all clubs. 3-4 rehearsals step in... a few waggles, then pull the trigger... lately I've been calling myself a few good names... as a matter of fact Ive been talking to the ball too much. Must be watching too many JS highlights.

 

My putting has been improving immensely. I like the ball to drop on the last revolution. Also been working on my misses. If it is uphill I make sure to miss short if I am going to miss so I have an uphill to clean up, and the opposite for downhill. Been trying to make the leave below the hole.

Depends on how I did on previous hole.

 

If I did bad then I sing a song to myself that helps me clear my mind and relax approaching he next tee box.

 

Otherwise, I take a couple practice swings until I am getting the right club path I'm looking for. Then I step up and let ‘er rip.

 

On my drives, I always pick a target line from behind the ball. Walk straight to ball, place driver behind and then align my feet. Deep breath and swing away.

 

I try to not overthink it...

K.I.S.S. = Keep It Simple Stupid

  1. Pick a club
  2. Stand behind the ball and pick a target
  3. Point the club at the ball and one waggle at waist high
  4. Let the clubhead fall to the ground (my boss pointed this out; I never knew I did that)
  5. Step up to the ball and swing

If the lie is significantly above or below my feet, I'll take a few practice swings before getting behind the ball.

I now rehearse to ingrain a lesson taught to me by my club pro. Initiating the downswing by rotating the hips to drop the shoulder and hence arms into position at 9 o'clock. I do this twice,then back up behind the ball to pick my target,align my club and then pull the trigger.

But only when money is involved

Before every shot I do this

 

 

Ok, possibly not. 

 

Full: Stand behind the ball and line up the shot with a point within a foot of the ball. Set up the club face first, then my feet. Focus on my left arm and go.

 

Short: Stand behind the ball and line up the shot. Alight to the ball a club head away for two practice swings. Set up on the ball. Look at the pin again. Focus on my left arm and go

 

Putting: Line the put up from behind. Take a few swings for tempo/speed while looking at the hole. Step to the ball. Stare down the hole one last time to assert dominance. Putt.
