I’m interested in knowing the different Pre Shot Routines that people use .
I have started to adopt a simple Pre Shot and its still early days but I feel there could be some merit in it .
Mainly to calm the mind and try to reduce the chatter of the little guy who sits on your shoulder before each shot :D
Anyone gone down this rabbit hole already that has any advice ?

Very, very good application that should be your foundation. Got to get this right in PRACTICE. Hard to do, shooting with your buddies in practice, but maybe it isn't practice afterall, just good times and that's good too. It's hard to concentrate with a lot of chatter, so to that end, I like to PRACTICE by myself, and I seem to get certain aspects accomplished. Good luck on this routine by Will.

No preset routine and just playing the tgt. in the air, like bird shooting is fun and less stressful, but it has little application for improving your game.

Will's is pretty well laid out. And he's right in that the hardest part is running it consistently and especially during practice.

Ever watch anyone shoot bunker trap - Now there is some pre-shoot routines. Which clay sport? For Skeet I probably do too much. I have a friend that I shoot with who shoots better scores if he holds low gun and gets delayed or unknown pulls.

I had a golf instructor when I played on the high school golf team. He told us we could shave 6 strokes off our game just by improving our putting (A lot more for a weekend golfer). BUT he told us that most golfers spend to much time thinking about the put. He taught us a Three Move put, which I used all my adult life. He was the best putter on the Senior Tour that year and for many years after.

For some, thinking about it too much is not good, for others it is a necessity.

Bob

If you want to watch some top shots, Nick Berry put a video together of some pre-shot routines.

The pre-shot routine has to start in practice. Then continue thru the day of the shoot w/ hydration and eating.

As you drive up to a station (or walk) look at the machines , look at the pair (report or true) Look how the plate is aimed. Get your feet right and then clear your mind, or at least focus it , narrowly.

I’ve watched a couple of videos of them shooting in competition, and I must admit their pre shot does seem very intense and prolonged .
I can’t see how that is a mind calming process, but their results speak for them .
I suspect that they are doing a heap of visualisation of each target.

Don Currie’s book Mastering Sporting Clays lays it out well IMHO

Great thread. Gil and Vickie Ash have done a video on pre and post shot routines that have helped me. Also a correction routine for when you miss. They explain it very clearly and in easy to understand steps.

And then there is the minimalist approach to the pre-shot routine. If you go to 4:39 of this video you'll see George Digweed, at a major tournament, call for and shoot 8 targets in 34 seconds.

This is what I’ve been trying over the last couple of shoots .
I know that Ben Husthwaite has controversy following him , but that doesn’t mean his technique and ideas should be rejected .Without question he is at the top of the game and his coaching style is very precise and understandable.

Preshot routines are for people from Earth. King George isn’t from this planet.

DR & Kayles podcast has some good information as well on preshot / mental game. http://beyondthepodiumpodcast.com/category/mentalgame/

Yep! Better not be sleeping at the switch if trapping when Kruger is in the stand either.

I think Matarese, Kruse, and Fanizzi take the longest. How would you like to practice with them for a couple a hundred tgts? I would just grin and bare it, to learn.

I’d take that opportunity! Just like pitchers..... they all have their routines to go through before they get to it.
