Main Set Monday – Remember Your Count

Getting a new season started, you should always revisit, and set up habits that will help you through the entire season.

An easy and important self-evaluation tool is simple stroke counting.  It helps you measure another aspect of your performance without just looking at the clock.  Learning how to make stroke counting a habit, simply means DOING IT.  With that in mind, here’s a simple set you can use to start building that habit.

Main Set – short course yards:
 – 12 x 25 on :30 – reduce your count from 1-4 – Remember this count, the highest and the lowest, as you’ll be using those through the rest of the set.
 – 12 x 50 on :45 – use the same numbers as above, reducing the counts from 1-4.
 – 12 x 75 on 1:10 – same counts as above
 – 12 x 100 on 1:30 – same counts

If you’re confused, here is a quick example:
 – 25s.  If my stroke counts were from 1-4 – 20,19,18, 17
 – 50s – stroke counts should be – 40, 38, 36, 34
 – 75s – stroke counts should be – 60, 57, 54, 51
 – 100s – stroke counts should be – 80, 76, 72, 68
