Section 1

1) Collecting energy and connecting to my objective

The approach to the ball incorporates 90 % of the swing. We must find a point where both our body and mind are simultaneously focusing on achieving exactness in a fluid and uninhibited motion. We must be able to recall the same movement that creates a perfect shot using 14 different implements of different weight and length.

2) Approach to the ball

It starts with our approach to the ball, you must find a swing routine that repeats with every shot. Routine is used to create a process to focus on the shot in hand. It is a tool we use to remove any outside influences and help us to mentally ‘connect’ with our target.


A Standard routine normally involves a walk from behind, and then from the right side into the ball. Study it in the great players. Find your own ‘pattern of procedure.’ Practice it-like the top players.


Routine and start

Swing initiation is your individual addition to ‘kick-starting’ the movement into a flow. It can be a mental ‘key thought’ or a physical ‘bump’ into action. A small movement can give the swing life, it can feed rhythm and fluidity into the movement or release and hinder built-up tension that accumulates in a static position. A small kick-start is there in every top players swing, sometimes it is obvious to the onlooker, sometimes it is a secret only the player is aware of. Find your own.


From routine to start.

Once our body is set over the ball we are in a fluxed state. The eyes will connect you to the target. Provide your body with the necessary information to proceed. Your gaze should be steady and sure- a quickly rotating head will tend to be followed with an equally nervous start.


Ready and alert

Be alert-focused to the job in hand. Be calm and CONNECTED WITH THE TARGET-body firm, muscles lightly stressed or taught.
