Do Not Freeze

Golf TipDo not freeze, please.  Occasionally, you will play with someone who gets over a shot or a putt and then remains perfectly still for what seems an eternity.  While it may only be thirty seconds to a minute, this frozen position is never a good sign.  During that time, the player is probably running swing thoughts or checklists through his mind and creating anxiety and doubt.  Also, by remaining still, tension will build in the muscles so that they will feel rigid once the swing begins.  Once you are ready to play, step into the shot, get balanced, take a little waggle to feel the club, and pull the trigger.  By keeping moving, you stay relaxed and loose and ready to perform an athletic move.
