Dr. Patrick Cohn, golf psychology expert and author of the "Golfer's Mental Edge" CD program, teaches amateur to tour professional golfers how to improve their mental game of golf.
Believe it or not, your preshot routine is very important to shot making and consistency. But guess what? Far too many golfers just go through the motions physically without mental focus.
Here’s the thing: You really don’t have a preshot routine if you perform your routine mindlessly without mental focus.
Now let’s suppose that you take physical steps to prepare for a shot such as a practice swing, set up, etc. This is a good start, but not the whole ball of wax.
The reality is the physical part of your routine is only one facet to a good preshot routine…
That’s why your mental routine is the most important part of your preshot preparation, but so easy to neglect for most golfers. Get this: your mind controls your body. Your thoughts and images trigger a good swing.
OK, if you want to discover three critical mental strategies you must have in your preshot routine, watch my new golf confidence video. Check out my new golf psychology video to learn the three mental components of a good preshot routine.
