Practice session 1: Pre-shot routine 15 minutes

  1. Pick the shot to play with the club
  2. Use your “minds eye” to see a clear imagine of the flight of the golf shot you’re about to play
  3. Internally feel and believe that you are in a very happy place
  4. Make that practise swing that includes both the mental feeling and an excellent practice swing
  5. Set up and  hit the shot to the target
  6. Repeat the process

Practice session 2: Aiming the club 15 minutes

  1. Identify ball to target line and use poles or golf shafts as guides.
  2. Identify the leading edge of the club and align the leading edge perpendicular to that ball to target line.
  3. Stand directly behind the ball and find a point/leaf/odd looking grass or etc, a foot or two in front of the ball to target line. Use that mark as you aiming guide.
  4. Make a good practice swing, then set up and aim the club correctly.
  5. Hit the shot and repeat the process.

Practice session 3: Rotation exercises

  1. 5 x Hip-turn exercises
  2. 5 x Full body-turn exercises
  3. 5 x Pause & hold for 3 seconds then turn and swing thought drill
  4. 5 x Speed stick swings right & left handed with the 3 weighted sticks
  5. 5 x Opposite handed practice swings
  6. 5 x Opposite handed golf shots

Practice session 4: Opposite Hand Hitting

Practice hitting the ball with an opposite hand club. So if you are right hand, may I suggest find a left handed 6 or 7 iron. Furthermore, start practising hitting opposite hand for al least one hour a week. To help with the opposite hand swing. Practise the turning exercises in the opposite movement and swing, swing and swing away.
