A Post-Shot Routine Will Help You Lower Your Scores on the Golf Course

Published on

Many golfers focus on their pre-shot routine, but PGA Coach Blake Jirges says that a post-shot routine can be just as effective in lowering your scores on the golf course.
The 10 seconds following each shot are crucial in processing information from club selection to swing execution, assessing that information and moving on to the next shot.
Creating an effective post-shot routine will help prevent you from compounding mistakes when they happen — and they're bound to happen — but it will also help focus on the positives as well.
As golfers, we can learn just as much from the positive outcomes instead of just always trying to make corrections when we hit bad shots. A solid post-shot routine will only help you focus.
