If I have time I like to do a short stretch routine which is basically a few easy baseball swings from both sides, some twists and stretches with a long club, then a few practice swings very casually. If I have plenty of time then a small bucket of balls usually does the trick, but that also depends on the course I'm playing. The funny part though is that in terms of having a good round or a poor one, there is no rule. I have had great rounds when I got to the tee box with 10 seconds to spare, and horrible rounds with an hour's worth of great preparation.

For me, there is nothing worse than jumping out of the car and rushing straight to the 1st tee. I guess I'm a freak of nature, because my perfect world has me arriving at the course at least an hour before my round. Depending on layout of the facilities, I will try to putt first. I start with 10-15 footers up and down hill to get the speed of the greens. Then I'll move to 5-6 footers all around the most sloped pin position on the practice green. Next, I move to the chipping green. I'll hit a variety of chips and pitches with my PW, and two of my sand wedges. I'm focusing mostly on contact, and how much roll out the green is giving. With about 20 minutes left before the round, I'll head to the range with a small bucket. Start out stretching and then on to half wedges. 3 balls each with PW, 9, 7, 4H and then driver, focusing on mostly half speed swings to warm the back up. After that, I'll play a few holes in my head. If first hole is a par 5, I'll hit driver and guage my next shot based on how I hit it. Hit well I'll hit 3W or 5W and pretend to go for the green. Then I'll hit a chip or pitch if I felt like I missed the green. I'll play 3 holes or so based on the first 3 holes on the scorecard. By the time I get to the first tee, I've already played a couple of holes and I'm physically and mentally ready to go. Eliminates the need for the guys to have to say 'take a breakfast ball' to me. I, however, find myself saying it often to my boys who don't warm up beforehand...

QUOTED  If I have time I like to do a short stretch routine which is basically a few easy baseball swings from both sides, some twists and stretches with a long club, then a few practice swings very casually.


That's me cept that I will ALWAYS make time for this type of brief stretching--mandatory. Will also hit some putts before tee time. I also try to get in a short iron practice session a few days before a round--and I'll hit maybe 10 drives the day before. Never hit balls on the range before the round.

The warming up is prepare for physical exertion or a performance by exercising or practising gently beforehand. Warming up is performed before a performance or practice. Athletes, singers, actors and others warm up before stressing their muscles. It prepares the muscles for vigorous actions.

When I was racing, I would ride 30-60 minutes as a warm up before a race. I'd include 2-3 full on hard efforts of about 3-5 minutes each to get the body and mind geared up for what was about to come. In golf, I always swing my orange stick for a couple of minutes to get the body rotating, HR up a bit and blood flowing. Sometimes I'll do a little jog with high knee kicks to get the lower body ready to go.

If time allows I'll hit some balls on the range. Mainly full wedge shots to get my rhythm, then a couple of mid irons followed by a handful with the driver.

I have to warm up... get the bad swings out.

at the very least, i need to hit 5-10 half swings... and need to hit them crisp. If i can't do that,my swing will suck. 99% of the time, i can get it crisp before I tee off.

No, not anymore . . . I may hit a couple putts and/or chips but that's it, anything else is a waste of time and back.

I often have not left enough time too, But I enjoy it when I can. If I'm going to a nice course, I really enjoy getting to the course early and experiencing the total package!

I was lucky enough to play a pro am with KJ Choi recently and we had lunch together afterwards. He told me that his routine prior to every round of golf is to wake up 3 hours prior to his tee time. He spends 30 to 45 minutes waking up, showering, eating breakfast, etc. etc. Then he spends another 30 minutes stretching his entire body. After that he'll hit 200! balls on the range, proceed to chip and putt and then he considers himself ready for his round.

We teed off at 7:15am for our pro am and he said he was awake at 4am to prepare for just a pro am round.
