Hank Haney – Approaching the Ball

Post 1 of 801

In today’s tip of the day video, Hank Haney talks about the mental preparation that goes into a shot before you ever set up to the golf ball. We wanted to offer you this tip because it is something most amateurs pass over, but it is something all the professionals do. Enjoy! Enjoy!






Hank Haney believes that one of the biggest problems amateur golfers make is assuming the distance to the pin. Knowing your distances is crucial to club selection and better scores. Hank recommends trying one of the many SkyCaddie rangefinders so you know exactly how far it is to any spot on the golf course.

I was taught this method years ago and ALWAYS use it. Thanks for the reinforcement.

This may be fine for the 0-10 handicappers, but this is just going to slow down the 25 handicap amateur who already takes too much time thinking over the ball. Welcome to your next 5 hour round!

I think something about who it’s appropriate for could have been mentioned in the video. Just sayin’

or maybe incorporate this into a practice session on the range, so that it’s second nature when you get on the course…..

Great tip. This is what I have been doing except I set up to the tracks first and then square the the club last. I’ll try squaring the club and grip before I set up to the tracks and see if that improves my line. Anything that improves your line has to speed up play and improve your game rather than looking for your ball in the rough.

Thanks for reinforcing the way I learned to line up a long time ago. I will reinstitute this approach into my golf game.

I couldn’t disagree with you more, slow behind you. This is a great tip for all golfers, including the 25+ handicapper. This will get them into their next shot mentally before they even address the ball.
