Being able to imagine or visualise the golf shot you want to hit before you step up to the ball is a skill that many amateur golfers struggle with. Katie Dawkins offers some pointers to flex the most important golfing muscle - your brain.

Relish The Moment

Every time you hit a good shot or hole a great putt, hold your finish for a few seconds whilst you absorb what it felt like and how it looked. This will be valuable ammunition to use for the visualisation technique.

Imagine Your Round The Night Before

You can apply the ‘crossing the line’ drill to an entire hole or even a whole round at your home course. This is a great cure for insomnia and also a fantastic tonic for any demon holes you may have! Keep playing the hole over and over again in your mind until you can safely par it, or even score an ace!

Quality not Quantity

On the range, rather than machine gunning hundreds of balls one after the other, take your time on each shot by going through a pre-shot routine. Visualise your shot behind each ball and rehearse it. When you step over that line you should be fully focused and geared up to succeed.
