Improve Consistency By Mastering THIS 💯
This is what you need to do to get real consistency, not just with the drives but with your irons and every aspect of your game. We’re going to cover the iron shots today, but really it’s the process that we’re talking about. You do this process for every single shot you hit and I insure you. Your consistency will sky rocket. No matter what level you’re at, no matter how often you’re playing, we’re not playing. You follow this very simple process and I’m going to give you a kind of an overview of it.
It’s going to give you the most consistency and the best thing is it’s got absolutely nothing to do with technique. However, I am going to give you one really nice little sneak tweak that will give you something to perhaps think about when you’re swinging as well, just to kind of help dial in that kind of consistency feel so you’re not worried about swing positions, you’re not worried about tempo or where the last shot has gone or where the next shot needs to go. It’s about being focused on the endeavor that you have in that moment, whether it’s 170 yard on shot, whether it’s a 250 yard drive over water that you’re trying to do. Follow this and you will be moved. Consistency, you will improve consistency right now.
Okay, so mastering consistency. Is it possible? Ah, maybe I know that’s the title of the video, but this is going to get you so much closer to that fact and has nothing to do with swing technique. I’m going to touch on that at the end, but the main thing I want you to understand is, you know when we wake up each day we feel a bit little bit different. Even the elite tour players from day to day, they’re playing four or five competitive rounds a week. You know, with a practice round and the program, whatever it might be, every day those they are going to feel a little bit different. They’re going to swing a little bit different and they practice every single day. It’s their job. I doubt very much it’s your job. So trying to improve consistency by working on swing technique alone is just dooming you to fail.
If that’s your objective, there’s always going to be, we’ve got to be realistic. There’s always going to be miss strikes. There’s always going to be the swing feeling a bit off. That’s just how it is. Even when you’re playing great, you’re going to hit the old crap shot. It’s just going to happen. But what we can do is sort of remove the element and the stress about swing technique, especially when we’re playing and we can focus on the process and that comes down to other stuff I’ve talked about before which is choosing the strategy and your intermediate point and making sure that you are committing to the endeavor, the shot that you want to hit, whatever that might be, whether it’s a, you know, a 20 foot chip, whether it’s you’re trying to bomb a drive, commit to it. Be precise in what you’re trying to do because you’ve got to stop guessing a golf and that’s why we have a complete resource coming out soon.
That is just about the simple process, the simple process being strategy, intermediate point, matching the setup, practice in prediction, letting go and evaluating. That’s the acronym and you can see that here now. So getting the process right is crucial, but it’s not that difficult. So all I’m going to try and explain to you today is when you’re out on the golf course, be precise. Be predictive of what you’re trying to do. Because if you’re just guessing, if you’re just hoping what you want that golf ball to do, no matter how good your swing is, even if you know you’re swinging great and you’re practicing great, it’s going to change every single shot. But the one thing that you can make constant and consistent is the process that you follow. Maybe you think of it as a pre shot routine, but I’m going to run through it quickly right now.
And that’s just talking about that pre-shot routine to enable you to have that consistency to commit to the shot. Forget about the swing positions, forget about the stress of all that. So we’ve got, I mean 180 yards here, I’ve got a seven. I’m the first thing we need to do is think about the strategy and all this only takes a couple of minutes, but we’re talking the strategy.
I’m not going to go in depth here, but what do I want the shot to do? There’s a bit of wind coming into play, so I probably need to clean up a little bit. Okay. There we’re on a slight slope. I might draw the ball a little bit. This is for me. This is what’s happening for me. It might be different for you. The next part. So there’s my strategy. I’m going to choose the club that I want to hit.
I want to hit a smooth seven on. Great. Perfect. How have I been hitting it today? Uh, not great cause I’m pretty rusty so I might actually club up to a six time just to make sure that I get a nice strike and a smooth swing. Perfect. That’s my strategy. Now I just make sure that I’ve got my intermediate point. And on the course, you can be lucky with objects like this. We’ve got the the sprinkler head and my intermediate point. So what do I do with this intermediate point? I ensure that when I’m aiming up, that’s indirectly where I want to start the ball, but it’s not just where I want to start the ball. This intermediate point is how I’m going to track my swing. And that’s the objective. It’s not just an arbitrary golf swing.
It’s not just making a goal swing for the sake of it. Trying to, you know, all, I’m a little bit laid off, I need to be here. This is about this specific task, this shot, allowing it to happen for the shot I want to hit. Okay. So the intermediate point is enabling me to set up, which comes to the matching. So I match my set up to it and then does that set up feel right to the shot that I want to hit?
That suits the strategy? Yes it does. Now it’s just about having some practice swings and predicting that same feel. So what kind of shot do I want to hit? I want to hit a low penetrating iron shot. Okay, so my practice swing is going to feel like that low penetrating iron shot below the wind. That’s the strategy that I want.
So there’s my practice swing and like I talk about is the gut. The green keeper might not like it, but I’d love it when you can just strike the turf a little bit on your practice swings because that’s going to give you that real rehearsal as much as you can. Okay. You replaced the divot and I will do afterwards. So after we’ve done that practice and prediction, you don’t have to strike the turf as much if you don’t want to. As long as you replace your divot, it’s okay. But now we’ve got the real life golf shot.
So you’ve chosen your strategy, you’ve chosen your intermediate point, you’ve matched your set up to it, you’ve practiced and you’re predicting the same feel. It’s all about that feel and reactiveness. It’s not about positions, it’s not about that. Especially when you’re on the course, it’s about reacting to the shot you want to hit.
You know, even if you just trying to hit the center of the face, this isn’t just about, Oh, I want to hit a nice low fade or a high drawer or whatever and I can’t do that. It’s not about that. It’s about telling your brain precisely where you want the ball to go about guessing to it. I always talk about it, but if I was to pay you to throw a ball into that bunker there, you wouldn’t think about how you’re hindering your risks and how your weight transfer is. You would be reactive to it. That’s what you do. If I said, here’s a grantor threaten in that bunker, I would wage you that. You be able to manage it quite well. But if I said, I’m going to get you to load up your right side to extend your right arm to transfer the weight and then release, and if you make it to the bunker, you’re going to get a grant far less if you would achieve it the second way around.
Anyway, I digress a bit. So we’ve gone through the practice and predict. Now it’s just about letting go. It’s about trusting it. It’s about believing, you know, just enjoying it. Sunshine, you know, w w hopefully coming out of covert stuff right now, but enjoy the sunshine but commit and let go and just feel that release and that tempo of gold swing and just do it. Believe in it, trust it. Let go. Forget about everything else. Forget about what the wife said to you earlier and it doesn’t really matter. Just enjoy this specific shot. Don’t think about the shots that you’ve hit before.
Commit to this task right now. And this process can only take 30 seconds really but you now commit you and you let go and you hit the shot.
And once you’ve hit that golf shot, you evaluate the E of the simple. You evaluate. Did you follow all those processes or steps of that process? And we’re going to go more in depth in this and another time, but I assure you at the very least next time you go out and play, you want to be consistent. Make sure you choose your strategy, make sure that you choose your intermediate point and very precise in what you’re trying to do and just be reactive to that. Just think of it like that, being reactive to the objective that you’re trying to accomplish. Do that and you’re going to be playing much better golf, okay? And in the technical aspect, all you need to do is stay centered and balanced. Keep your head centered, feel like your left shoulder is going down, and then stay balanced through the out.
That whole swing where you’re letting go, you stay balanced. You do that. You’re going to be playing much more consistent golf. Enjoy it. If you have any questions, leave them below so they have it.
