through the winter without golf.
You are going to spend the rest of the off season doing two things.
1. Make a list of all the things in your pre-shot routine you do. Throwing up grass, lining up, practice swings, visualization, deep breathe, etc. I want you to pick the one that helps you relax the most and the one that helps you line up the best and eliminate the rest. If you can’t do it in less than 20 seconds, you only get to keep one of them.
2. Make a list of all your swing thoughts…and eliminate all of them but one.
Go out and play your first round when it gets warm enough. I bet most of you shoot as well or better than you were before you had to stop playing. The ones that don’t…you need to do this even more because you aren’t having enough fun playing golf.
Think of it like counting cards in blackjack. Most who try and do it, get confused and lose all their money. The ones who can do it, are thinking so much they don’t enjoy the act of playing.
Now if your only goal in golf is too shoot the lowest score possible…by all means disregard this post. If your goal is to have the best combination of fun and low scores…this may be the most important thing I have written.
