Fine-tune your warm-up

Most players follow roughly the same warm-up: They hit some wedges, work through their irons, and then end with the driver. Mine is similar, but I've added a twist that has helped me a lot. After finishing with my driver, I hit a standard 6-iron shot and laser the precise distance of the carry. I then do the same with my 5-iron, 2-hybrid and 3-wood. I hit the ball differently every day depending on the weather and how I feel. This routine helps me go out there with the confidence that I know where my game is.
