Brandt Snedeker’s Killer Pre-putt Routine
If you watched The Sony Open last week, you will have no doubt seen the quality of Brandt Snedeker’s putting.
For me, as mental game coach, a major factor in the strength of his putting is how deliberate and consistent his pre-putt routine is.
Why is the pre-putt routine so important?
Where you put your focus before a putt (or any shot for that matter) has a big influence on the fluidity of the stroke. If you’re not following a proper sequence, your mind can wander onto things such as the importance of the outcome and the technical aspects of your stroke. Any doubt or hesitation about the line, how good your stroke is, or what making or missing means, makes for a tentative and inconsistent stroke, and inconsistent results.
Putting is about feel and trust; the more you can take conscious thinking out of it and just use your eyes and trust yourself to hit the ball the correct distance, the better. It needs to be “reactive”, not “proactive” when you are over the ball. Clearly your conscious mind is active when making decisions about the line and speed, but once that is decided upon, the best thing you can do is put faith in your process and trust your stroke.
