Short Game, The importance of your practice swing and visualizing your shot. ‘When the seeing is clear the doing is effortless’, let me elaborate. I am sure a most of you watch the pros on TV. What makes them so good is one, they practice a whole bunch but two, they can see the shot they want to play before playing it. Why do they do it? Tension, tension is a killer, many of you can attest to the fact that when you are nervous over a shot ten to one it doesn’t go the way you planed. Bring in the practice swing and visualization, watch a professional do their practice swing and then watch them play the actual shot. What you will notice is there will be no difference between the two. It’s all about positive affirmation, making yourself visualize a positive outcome will relax your muscles in your body, the more tense your body is over a shot the smaller your chances are of making a good swing.
