If you are looking for a solid pre-shot routine, then look no further! Tiger has developed this one over decades of experience. This routine will allow you to feel the shot you want to hit and get you ready to dynamically move your action into your target through the ball in a very effortless manner. You will understand the true purpose of the pre-shot routine!

Here are the four elements you need to cover in the 40 seconds you have prior to each of your shots. You should be able to easily get through these points in 25 seconds.

1. Pick an “end target” or a place you want to have the ball end up

2. Pick a flight plan that fits your ability to get the ball there; please INCLUDE THE HEIGHT OF THE SHOT or peak trajectory before it falls back down towards the end target.

3. Find an intermediate point that will set you up into that picture-so that when you let the weight of the club release you to the target, you can predict that the ball position, the distance to the ball, the posture, and the grip-club face relationship will fit the flight when you let the club track itself into the direction you want to start the ball.

4. Set up done? Prediction of shot done? It is now OUT of YOUR CONTROL, just let the club release you in the direction you want to start the ball. Look for the feel of that low effort and nice whipping velocity that unleashes that ball into that flight with freedom and abandon!

    This is not Eldrick’s pre-shot’s routine, it’s been done since the beginning of time by most golfers, so stop giving that adulterous idiot undue credit

    What in the world are you talking about?! Its not “out of your control”. You are swinging and releasing the club. It is literally only in your control. If its out of Tiger’s control at that point, how did he win so many majors?

      You clearly aren’t familiar with Wisdom In Golf or Shawn Clement. This is advice for amateurs, not Tiger Woods. Thanks to Golf Digest, and years of teaching swing positions, the average am is trying to manipulate their body to match a swing position instead of swinging the club towards the target. He doesn’t mean what you think.

3 drills that will build a great putting stroke

Published

on

When you find yourself scratching your head because of all the putts you’re missing, take the time to hit the practice green and work out the kinks. All players go through slumps and face times when their stroke needs touching up, these three drills will go a long way in helping to reestablish a solid putting motion.

1. 4 Tee Drill

This drill is great for focusing on center contact as well as helping to maintain a square putter face through impact.

Most players will associate this drill with the two tees that many players on tour use for solid contact. But what makes this drill different is that by having two sets of tees, it forces us to have a good takeaway, as well as a good, follow through. Just have the two sets spaced 3 to 5 inches apart with the openings of the two sets being slightly wider than your putter. From there, any unwanted lateral movement with your putting stroke will be met by a tee.

2. Coin Drill

This drill pertains to those who tend to look up before hitting a putt which throws off our follow through and makes us manipulate the head. We do this for different reasons, though none of them are justifiable. Because those that keep their head down through the stroke will allow you to have better speed, control and just make a better stroke in general.

To perform this drill, just place the ball on top of the coin and make your stroke. Focusing on seeing the coin after you hit your putt before looking up.

3. Maintain the Triangle drill

One of the biggest things that I see in high handicap golfers or just bad putters, in general, is that they either don’t achieve an upside-down triangle from their shoulders, down the arms, and into the hands as pictured above. If they do, it often breaks down in their stroke. Either way, both result in an inconsistent strike and stroke motion. It also makes it harder to judge speed and makes it easier to manipulate the face which affects your ability to get the ball started online.

I use a plastic brace in the photo to hold my triangle, however, you can use a ball or balloon to place in between the forearms to achieve the same thing.

These three drills will help you establish proper muscle memory and promote strong techniques to help you roll the rock!
