Flow golf routines


The goal of the following routines is to prepare your mind and body to execute at your best, get you physically, mentally, and emotionally ready to be able to commit to the present golf shot. Apply these routines consistently on a practice range and on golf course alike. We encourage you to create your own personal routines, that you feel resonates with you best. 


PRE-ROUND GOLF ROUTINE

Just about any channel for flow can be used before golf round or competition (vagal, sensomotoric, thermoreceptive, auditory, visual etc.), but on the golf course we are more limited and using more of breathwork between shots, cognitive alignment or flow recall triggers.

PRE-SHOT GOLF ROUTINE

In golf the purpose of flow alignment is to ignore the score, move away from over-thinking shots, disengage pre-frontal cortex and get into the subconscious embodied processing as much as possible. The purpose of pre-shot routine is to automate the process and help you achieve the best rhythm.

POST ROUND GOLF ROUTINE

The best time to take advantage of proper evaluation is right after a round. Go from the 18th green to the practice tee and your experience will be fresh in your mind. Reinforce the good and work on the few shots you wish you could have played better. This is where you can turn a negative into a positive.

POST SHOT GOLF ROUTINE

A post-shot routine is done after a shot is gone. You evaluate what happened with the shot and learn from it. A post-shot routine can keep you mentally and emotionally focused even when the shot is poor.

DRIVING RANGE FLOW ROUTINE

The overall condition of the body & mind in which training shots are performed is crucial for our improvement. What we want, is to be in as optimal state as possible during each practiced shot. We must take into account what can be done on the driving range itself or prior to training.

ON COURSE FLOW ROUTINE

While playing golf on a course, we hit the shot, then walk to the next spot and hit it again, a total of about 90 transitions. So we see we are able to apply flow interventions either before or during the transition to the next spot.
