#173 Web TV: How To Approach Your First Driver Shot of The Day When Running Late

How To Approach Your First Driver Shot of The Day When Running Late

Is this you?

Are you the type of person who is always running late, get to the pro shop, throw your money in, take your card then run down to your team mates, who are actually on the tee ready to hit off. You quickly run, get your driver out, get set and then blast away and hope that everything works.

Is that you?

Today, I’m going to show you how to deal with that.

Firstly, I’m going to say, get there a bit earlier so that you are not putting pressure on yourself, but if you can’t, then here is a way in which you can deal with it.

You are probably panting and apologising to everyone because you had to get this and that done, or something else happened blah, blah, blah. There is a lot of really quick chatter that goes on in your head.

What I want you to do here is, once you step onto the tee box, walk up slowly and take a nice, deep, slow breath, slow yourself down.

If you walk onto the tee box and you are all jittery because of everything that has happened, and you are running late and when you are running late you get quite stressed and put more pressure on yourself, you need to make sure you are slowing down and once you get onto the tee do a slow, half swing.

Remember you haven’t even had a chance to warm up yet, have you?

How are you going to be prepared to hit a shot?

You are not!

Once you have done a slow, half swing, nice and slow, remember, slow, slow, slow.

Then when you are ready to go, come to the ball and do the same thing, when you set up with your driver do a slow, half swing. Remember, go slow, nice and slow.

When you go nice and slow, you will find that the connection will be better with the ball, more than likely you will hit a nice, straight, easy shot down the middle of the fairway and then you can continue on your way. It’s something really simple.

I see a lot of people who don’t do that. I want to make sure that you do.

Come onto the tee, go nice and slow, nice, easy half swing, easing yourself into the game rather than forcing it. It’s not going to work if you force it, ease yourself in, nice easy shot, then you can move on and continue the rest of your game, a nice and easy way to start.

    Hi Tiff
    Thanks for this week’s tip.
    Although I’m not someone that runs late (normally the opposite) I did find the video helpful to remind me to slow down. The anxiety that normally comes with my first T shot, often makes me quicken up, not breath and really just rush the whole thing and hope for the best.
    So thanks. Wonderful as always!
    Cheers
    Jenelle

      Hi Jenelle

      Yes you are always early ready for your warm up. But you can still apply as you are… taking the time to breathe.

      Enjoy the shot and especially the first tee shot.

      Tiff 🙂
