    What if you have plenty of time and want to PRACTICE before a round, instead of just warming up? In practice, isn’t it mostly about finding your swing and making good shots? Are you suggesting that you can’t practice before a round?

    Also, you say at the end of the video to perhaps go putt and chip a bit after the full swing warm-up. How do you do that in the same manner as just a warm-up? Shouldn’t we be doing 3 ft putts with the objective of making them and 20-30 ft putts with the objuective of getting them close enough to ensure a two-putt? Isn’t doing that creating expectations for the round?

      I am saying if you are NOT practicing or DO NOT have time to practice warm up as I suggest. If you have tie to practice then practice properly.

      When you go to work on short game hit some chips and pitches to get the feel and confidence. Hit putts as I suggest. I highly doubt you are going to make that many long putts. Making short putts is part of the game which should be practiced constantly.

    That’s a wonderful tip, Paul. I hope to be able to try it soon. I don’t know how I missed it before.

    Hi Paul. This is a very valuable tip. I’ve suffered the high expectations syndrome many times after a surprisingly good pre- round session. It’s like leaving your game in the locker room. Failing, after hitting multiple good shots, THAT DIDN’T COUNT, is extremely frustrating. I guess what your saying is warm up for your round, but hit only enough low pressure shots to WARM UP, and not effect your anticipation.

    Thanks, Ron

      Warm up means warm up. It does not mean hit great shots. If you don’t care where it goes you will have no expectations when you go to play.

  5. What a sound and commun sense video lesson .it all boils down to THE fact ,as I have said before ,that “beating BALLS ” on THE range is useless and a waste of Time .Playing on THE golf course and hitting BALLS on THE range are two diff

      Beating balls is a waste of time. Working on swing positions is not. I like this way of warming up. Works great. If you have time to practice you should be practicing.

    Paul, this is again a very logical and easy to understand tip. I will make it part of my tool bag for the limited practice time I have.

      I love this tip. Hitting it great on the range is a recipe for disaster when you play. Just warm up. Don’t even watch the ball.
