Discover the FASTEST Way to Lower Your Handicap, Master Your Mental Game, and Avoid Blowup Holes 

Learn the secret trait¬†all elite amateur and professional golfers¬†use to prime their mind and body for every swing. 99% of golfers don't know this secret and waste 3‚Äď5 shots (or more) every single round.¬†

If you're someone who loves golf, wants to have more fun, and lower your handicap (without swing changes) 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 better on off days
  • Simplify the mental approach
  • Stop collapsing after some bad shots
  • Avoid 3-5 costly blow up holes & "rollercoaster rounds"
  • Be able to take your range game to the golf course so you can¬†break 90 or break 80 more consistently

And most importantly, have more fun!

While golf isn't paying your bills, you still want to become a CONSISTENT golfer and hit your golf goals. 

Here's the truth... if you hit it well on the range but not the course, it's NOT a swing issue.

It's a STRESS issue.

It's usually a lapse in mental concentration that makes your body struggle to hit the shots you know you can in practice on the golf course.

You're not alone, either. 

Sometimes, it even happens to the pros (despite knowing the secret you are about to learn today).

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? 



So, why did they melt down? And more importantly, what don't you play more CONSISTENT GOLF?

Lack of a strong mental game routine. 

In the case of the pros, they weren't in the right mental space to make solid decisions and stay relaxed.

While it might just seem like nerves, all these historic meltdowns all have ONE thing in common.

All of these players changed (unintentionally) their pre-shot routine.

Remember, your swing does NOT break down mid-round.

Your mind simply get overwhelmed, stressed, and makes it nearly impossible to maintain concentration. 

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.

Remember, 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 to hit it.

With golf, you need a CONSISTENT routine to play CONSISTENT golf.

A routine is the FASTEST way to lower your scores, play more consistent, build a strong mental game, and maintain concentration for 18 holes.  

But not all routines are created equal.

There is 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 with the European Tour PROVES that a pre-shot ritual is the fastest way to start shooting lower scores WITHOUT changing your swing.

The European Tour did a study with RSM Consulting to study the power of routines, and the data is SHOCKING. 

This European Tour Study Changes EVERYTHING¬†ūüė≤

Lowering your handicap does NOT come from more swing changes.

It comes from having a consistent set of rituals for every single shot you hit on the golf course.

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‚Äď2 shots per round, this might help you save 3‚Äď5 (or likely more) shots every single round.

The best part?

No swing changes, training aids, or expensive golf lessons 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. 

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.

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

The PROVEN Formula to Lower Your Handicap and 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 your goal is to break 90, break 80, or become a scratch golfer, this works! 

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.

The same goes for all elite amateur and professional golfers - they have a stronger mental game thanks to a consistent routine (assuming they stick with it).

Yet, most amateur golfers have zero routine... and it's costing at least 3-5 strokes per round (or more).

Without a consistent routine, it's IMPOSSIBLE to play consistent golf.


Without a routine, it's much easier to:

  • Lack consistency.
  • Have mental fatigue.
  • Collapse after bad shots.
  • Have too many swing thoughts.
  • Let one bad shot lead to a blowup hole (or blowup holes).

However, a pre-shot routine IS NOT 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 like the first tee or a crucial putt on the 18th hole to win a match). 

To play consistent golf and lower your handicap, you MUST learn how to master your mind on the golf course with a consistent pre-shot routine.

There's an art to it and inside, you'll learn the secrets of the best players in the world.
