ok..im a 1 handicapper..club gave me a spot in the field as Im more or less the best player in the club.. however! when i play with top amateurs or guys off plus 3 or pro's i find myself almost in a rush to get out of the way,have no pre shot routine and a subconsious feeling that they must be looking at me and seeing all the flaws etc.. also tend to stand over the ball analyzing swing thoughts without thinking off the right shot to play and instead think of what move to make sure I have good contact.. ok im not that bad and have shot 67 round there..but yeah this is a step up.. any thoughts dart or anyone so that I enjoy it and at leastlook like a pro with a decent pre shot routine ! cheers..:)

GS with greatest respect, if you think that everyone else cares about your game and not concentrating on their own, your having a bubble bath.

gs77 Congratulations on getting a start. I would be very surprised if you don't have a pre-shot routine off your handicap. It will be there. The worst you can do is to start a conscious preshot routine at this stage. Start introducing a post shot routine like the pros do, if you aren't already doing this. If nerves are going to be an issue, concentrate on playing only your stock shot, the shot you can reliably make most times. It doesn't hurt to show off your game, it may even improve your concentration. You'll be fine if you play your normal game and shoot at the centre of the geen. Short siding is a score killer.

thanks razaar..

many thanks your wisdom as always..points noted..:)

lessons,books,youtube,read some more,good instructors,read even more,worked on it,studied it,practised it,tweaked it,listened to people who know, and ..made it to scratch last week….an enjoyable road..

The post shot routine is a means off getting feedback on your swing. The routine should only take a max of 10 secs and concentrates on your finish. The common routine is to hold the finish until the ball hits the ground. The finish will tell you if the pace of your swing is off if you are struggling to maintain balance. If your balance is precarious, then there is a power surge somewhere in the swing interfering with rhythm and tempo. If the finish is in balance and the shot has a negative result then the problem lies somewhere in the set up. The post shot routine is a means of making swing adjustments on the course and keeping in tune.

Cricketers do this after a poor shot to get it right in their mind and enforce positive swing thoughts, some guru wrote a book about it, forget who..

gs77 How often do you play your course off the black tees? If not often I would practice from those tees up to the event and work out a playing strategy to hit fairways and greens and mimimise potential blow out holes. 3 woods and hybrids to hit fairways is the way to go when under pressure and middle of the green approach shots. As far as comfort level goes, you are only playing for fun, the other guys are attempting to do it for a living. Lighten up and have fun and learn something from them along the way.

I should add that many golfers have a recoil in their finish, where the hands drop to the centre chest area at the completion of the backswing, in stead of posing with the hands held up at the top. We get more feedback past the ball when the arms and body are slowing down. It tells us much of what occurred on the other side of the swing.

I'm not in your league, GS, so I won't try and tell you what to do. But I will offer some thoughts for you to ponder. At your level, surely you have played pennant and against some stiff opposition. Do you fall to pieces then, or do you think that you can 'take this guy on'? Don't try and re-design any part of your game, just use your normal game and treat the event like you would a pennant match.
