Discover the SECRET to Playing Better Golf and Shooting Lower Scores WITHOUT Changing Your Swing

Learn the "8-second secret" that all elite amateur and professional golfers do to prime their mind and body for every swing. 99% of golfers don't know this secret and waste 3-5 shots (or more) every single round. 

If you're someone who loves golf but wants to play more CONSISTENTLY and shoot lower scores then you're in the right place. 

Golf is a hard sport but if you're like most players you probably make it 10X harder on yourself (without even realizing it). 

If you're like most golfers I'm sure you want to:

  • Score more consistently
  • Avoid costly blow up holes 
  • Hit more than one good shot in a row
  • Play to your potential and not waste shots every round
  • Be able to take your range game to the golf course so you can play better when it matters most

Because let's face it, there's nothing worse than being a great range player. It's so frustrating to hit it well on the driving range only to struggle on the golf course.

It's easy to get in your head and doubt yourself on the course. This usually leads to thinking,

  • "What's wrong with me?"
  • "What do I need to change in my swing?"
  • "How can I start shooting more consistently?"

Here's the truth... if you hit it well on the range but not the course, it's easier to fix than you might think.

Because believe it or not, losing your swing and playing bad happens even to the best players in the world too.

Think back to some of the biggest meltdowns you've ever seen in professional golf. 

Phil Mickelson at Winged Foot making double bogey on the final hole to lose his best chance of winning all four majors. 

Greg Norman at the 1996 Masters where he blew a six shot lead and lost to Nick Faldo.

Or, Lee Westwood in the 2013 Open Championship. 

Did all of these great players suddenly lose their ability to swing a golf club? 


They weren't in the right mental space to make decisions and keep their mind relaxed.

While it might just seem like nerves, they all have ONE thing in common.

All of these players changed (unintentionally) their pre-shot routine on the final day or on a specific shot. 

Which directly impacted their ability to go low and finish strong.

Essentially, they ditched what was working for them the previous days of the tournament. 

A pre-shot routine is one of the few things that all elite players have in common. 

Yet, most everyday amateur golfers have no consistent routine at all... then wonder why their game isn't consistent.

Golf is NOT like other sports.

You don't need to "react" to a ball being thrown at you like basketball or football.

The ball is just sitting there, waiting for you.

With golf, you need a routine to calm your nerves, swing like you do on the range, and prime your mind for the shot.

But there's an art to the timing and habits that make up your routine or pre-shot ritual.

And some parts of your routine can actually hurt your game and make bad shots almost inevitable.

Creating an efficient pre-shot routine is the fastest way to beat nerves, hit more fairways, more greens, and make more putts (regardless of your handicap).

Don't take my word for it, a study done on the European Tour PROVES that a pre-shot ritual is the fastest way to start shooting lower scores WITHOUT changing your swing.

This European Tour Study Changes EVERYTHING 😲

 When it comes to shooting lower scores, it's always good to learn from the best players in the world.

While most sports psychologists and announcers have talked about a pre-shot routine before, it had never been studied at the highest levels.

Every player had their own routine, but they were all very different from one and other. 

However, a new study found that there are some similarities and they're so simple that you can add them to your game and start shooting lower scores, FAST.

The European Tour conducted a player performance study to understand how routines impacted their score. They analyzed 22,000 shots to see how a routine may affect driving, approach shots, and putting.

The results were INCREDIBLE and will make you rethink why a pre-shot routine is SO important to playing consistently and shooting lower scores. 

They found:

  • A consistent routine lead to making more cuts 
  • An efficient routine could earn a European Tour player an extra 189K (EURO) per season
  • A shorter amount of time over the ball with putting resulted in a 90% in the likelihood of strokes being gained 

Think about it, this is true for some of the BEST golfers in the world. 

When using a consistent set of pre-shot rituals in an efficient amount of time they saw amazing results.

The study also found that amateur golfers like you can also benefit greatly from creating a pre-shot routine.

Think about how this would impact you, an amateur golfer... if it helped them save 1–2 shots per round, this might help you save 35 (or likely more) shots every single round.

The best part?

No swing change, training aids, or expensive instructor are required. 

This is why it's VITAL that you create a pre-shot routine ASAP.

But not all routines are the same and some might actually hurt your game. Only in golf right?

If you're ready to quit wasting more time on the driving range and ready to get the most of your game, I'm here to help.

Introducing Pre-Shot Like a Pro.

“Your pre-shot routine is your wingman
on the golf course."

The PROVEN Formula to Become a More Consistent Golfer

Pre-Shot Like a Pro is a game changing method to start shooting lower scores FAST using Michael's ARRA framework. This strategy is based on extensive science backed research to make golf feel easier every single round. Whether you're a 2 or a 20 handicap, this system will help you play better.

The truth is you probably know at some level that you need a routine. Think about it... NFL field goal kickers and NBA players at the free throw line all go through a series of rituals to prime themselves for the shot. While all elite amateur and professional golfers do the same thing. Most amateur golfers don't... and it's costing A LOT of shots every single round.

But a pre-shot routine isn't simply about doing the same things over and over again. It's about learning how to hack your mind so you can swing with confidence like you're on the range (even if it's a pressure packed shot). Your golf game depends on it.

Reaching your golf potential doesn't mean you need new equipment or expensive golf lessons. Instead, it's about learning how to master your mind on the golf course with a consistent pre-shot routine. But there's an art to it and inside, you'll learn the secrets of the best players in the world.
