Bob Culig’s Tip on Pre-shot Routines

Like a morning routine of rising by 7am, a good breakfast and driving the same route to the office, your golf game, and in particular approaching your golf shot, is no different. The pre-shot routine is important for better results on the course!

What should a pre-shot routine consist of? First and foremost, zero in on your desired target. Standing directly behind the ball will have you see your target line so much better. It will also assist you in aligning your clubface and body to the target you have picked out. Secondly, a pre-shot routine should involve a waggle or something personal to release the tension and anxiety of the upcoming shot. Line it up, take a few deep breaths, look at the target once more, a couple waggles of the club, then hit!

Customize your own pre-shot routine from the driver to the putter and everything in-between. Eventually, you will not be thinking of your pre-shot routine at all, it will become very natural to you.

Rules of Golf

It is not often that someone comes along with a revolutionary way to strike a golf ball, but Canadian James Lepp did just that. As a big hockey fan, he used a hockey shot to chip balls. This was successfully demonstrated on ‘Big Break – Greenbrier’, where Lepp used this invented chip which he named the “Saucer Pass” to reach the final.

Here is a video by James Lepp on the “Saucer Pass” Click here

After James Lepp appeared on ‘The Big Break’ the USGA, R&A and Golf Canada found the “Saucer Pass” to be illegal. Rule 14-1 says the club cannot be pushed, spooned or scraped. In this case, James is intentionally scraping (dragging or pulling) the club along the ground before he hits the ball.
