I find that one of the most important pieces to my workout and my golf game is meditation, which helps focus me mentally for the task ahead.  This may be as simple as a few deep breathing exercises before a round or actually sitting down and spending a little time before a workout.  I’d like you to try it along with me now, and then be sure to add this to your own routine.  Over time you’ll find this an effective way to relax and focus before your own golf game.
