Are you one of the many golfers whose only practice swing is the one you make before hitting your tee shot on the first hole? This lack of practice routine often results in an inconsistent round of golf and can lead to a lack of desire to play as often as you might like.

Make time for a complete pre-round routine and warm up session, just like the Shark did.

To overcome both these issues, try arriving at least 40 minutes before your tee-time, check-in at the pro shop and then, if you want to follow Greg Norman’s lead, head to the putting green. Greg always started his pre-round routine by putting and chipping first. He would then move to the practice range, going through his full routine from wedge to driver, finishing with a final few wedge shots before heading to the tee, arriving there about five minutes before his starting time.

The more you keep to this pre-round routine, the more consistent your game will become.
