John Phillips Tuition Series:
How to Improve Your Practice Time
Stretching / Drills / Percentage Golf / Winter Golf / Indoor Practice

If you ever go to watch a professional golf tournament, go to the practice range and watch the pro's practice. See how they start hitting half wedge shots and work through the bag until they get to the driver, finishing on the putting green before the start of their round.
Stretching

I see so many people go to play practice on the range with a basket of balls, start with a driver and then wonder why they can't hit it or pull a muscle.

When you first go to the range start with some stretching exercises, ie. touching your toes, side stretches, placing a club across your back and getting turning back and forth.

After warming up take your wedge and start hitting 3/4 wedge shots, move through the clubs 9, 7, 5, 3 then fairway woods till you get to the driver. Next time you practice using the even number clubs so you don't just wear out half the set or get a favourite club out of the bag.
