Give yourself the best chance of starting your round well by arriving at the golf course 45-60 minutes before your round. Begin at the putting green with putts of various lengths. Then hit a few chips to establish your feel. Finally, move over to the practice range and hit balls with every other club in your bag starting with your wedge. To ease first tee jitters your last three practice shots should mimic your opening drive.
