Your ‘Pre-Shot Routine’ is very effectively a ‘Now or Present Tense Task’. Strive to design and accomplish this discipline during every single procedure … Putter to Driver! This simplicity loads your ‘Mental Process Computer’ … loads and aims the gun! Get proficient and monotonous in your total game! Do not be capricious and ‘Short-Cut’ this essential ‘Pre-Shot Element’.
Understand ‘Process vs. Outcome Golf’! ‘Process Golf’ is a “Now Activity”. It leaves little or no room and mental capacity to indulge in ‘Fear Golf’. Get and feel ‘Confident, Comfortable and Consistent’!
‘Outcome Golf’ (Future Tense and State Of Mind) often falls prey to ‘Fear Golf’ and its inescapable ‘Tension’. Musculo-Mental Tension affects your ‘Strike Capability’. Tight muscles are slower muscles (see ‘Clubhead Speed’) that tend to not cooperate. (see ‘Clubface Aim, Clubhead Path & Plane’ … ‘Initial Ball Flight Line’)
What is ‘Outcome Golf’? “Boy, do I ever need a birdie on this hole. That will fix the bogie I got on the last one!”

Don’t get ahead of yourself or in your own way!
