Warm Up and Practice Sessions

I read that Jack Nicklaus, arguably the greatest player ever, was a big proponent of making sure he warmed up and practiced the shorter feel shots first, and then worked his way up to the longer shots. If you can dial in the feel shots before moving into full swings, it will help with timing and tempo, which in turn helps with distance and accuracy. Establishing your feel on shots from 15-50 yards is a great way to warm up and get your swing in sync before you move on to your longer clubs. So try it the next time you practice or before your next round.
