    Dear Mr Ross,

    Cann you give us an advice concerning breathing during the swing?
    Should we breathe in or out before the takeaway?

    Thank you so much!

    There is a Lesson Video in the “Mental Game” section called “Relaxation” … but a good start is to … Stop and stand still … then breathe in slowly through your nose … hold for a count of 4 … then let out through your mouth … repeat. Breathing through your nose should make your stomach go out (the diaphragm). You do not want to take a breath where your chest goes out. That kind of breath is for fight or flight and could make you more anxious.

    If you are concerned about breathing to relax, the real key to relaxing is to follow up the method above with an iron clad “Routine”. The Routine is the key to a repeatable golf shot. I also have a series of Lesson Videos called “Pre-shot Routine” that can help you develop your routine.
