Warming up is an essential part for a lot of sports. Athletes often go through a pre-game warm up before they begin the games in the professional sporting events. The golfers also need some warm up before they tee off. A proper warm up routine before you hit the links is just as important as your swing on the links. The golf pros often are fully prepared to make their best swings from the opening tee shot by the time tour professionals step to the first tee.

I would like to criticize the bad habits of warming up for the most amateurs. They often get warm up by dashing form their cars to the proshop to check in, then running to the first tee, all within five minutes or so. Usually this is followed by unsteady play for the first five holes and ends up with another disappointing round. However, as far as I am concerned, the five-minute warming up didn’t give them a full preparation for their tee. With this style of warm up, golfers are making bogies before they ever step on the course. In the following passages, we would set a warming up routine for your game.

In order to get enough time get a good preparation, you need to get to the course early. You may need to use the restroom and change your shoes and so on, when you come to the golf clubs. It is important that you do not feel rushed, so allow time to complete this entire warm up period at a leisurely pace. Moving slowly and staying in relax is good to set the tempo for the day .

Next, you need to began your warming up on the putting green. Putting is 43-percent of golf and the putting stroke is the slowest and smoothest of all strokes in golf. By spending time warming up on the green first, you will not only be prepared for the speed of the greens but you will also be starting the day with smooth, deliberate tempo. It makes no sense to visit the driving range first and gaet stretched out and limbered up for the opening drive, then stand for 15 minutes nearly motionless on the putting green.

Spend the first five minutes putting to a tee or a coin from twenty, thirty and forty feet and from a variety of angles. Watch the ball and pay attention to how much the ball rolls. Speed control is critical in putting and time spent judging pace will pay off on the course. Many students often complain that the greens on the golf course are not the same as the practice greens. The only difference between the two is the pressure to perform. The practice green is cut at the same height with the same mower and is usually constructed in the same manner as the greens on the course. The putts you roll on the course count and the pressure to perform makes the greens seem different. Then you should then spend another five minutes or so rolling putts to a tee or coin from ten feet in to three feet. Do not putt at the cup. You never want to see the ball miss the hole, so just use a tee or coin. And you should know that confidence is vital to good putting, if you roll putts at a small target like a tee or coin, the hole will seem huge and, therefore, your confidence level will be high. Finally, spend a few minutes hitting 25 six-inch putts that run straight uphill. You will make all 25 in a row and this will set you up with the perfect image: the ball rolling in the hole every time.

In order to determine how much the ball will roll you must test the firmness of the greens; you need to spend 10 minutes hitting chips around the green with a tee as a target. Different types of rough make the ball react differently when the ball hits the green, and different Spending time around the green will give you some ideas that will help you choose the best greenside shots during the round, and where to land the ball on the putting surface. On hard greens the ball tends to roll more than on soft greens. Stretching can improve your range of motion by up to 17-percent, so you can begin your full swing up with stretching about 15 minutes, which will helps you avoid injury and it helps relieve chronic joint pain.

Beginning with wedge shots also helps you start your routine with smooth tempo and rhythm. Next you can walk slowly to the practice tee and begin your full swing warm up with short wedge shots. You should use a short tee for all your shots on the range which will help you contact the ball crisply, and that will breed confidence. After hitting 10 wedges or so, begin working from your short irons up to the long irons and woods. Make each swing rhythmic and swing with complete balance control. Save the last five balls for some smooth, short wedge shots, or make full, slow-motion swings that only go 50 to 100 yards with your driver. This will help you reinforce the controlled rhythm and balance that you will use on the course.

In summary, good preparation leads good results, making a routine for your golf warming up, and warming up properly when you play the game, which will make you full of energy and confidence in the game.
