-It is important to understand the difference between practice and warm-up. Practice is where you work on your swing and it can be very technical. Warm-up is stretching your muscles, getting loose and ready to go.
-For practice to be effective you need accurate, immediate feedback. This could be a teacher, training aid, video or something else. All research shows that those who use feedback get better quicker. You need to create good habits and you can't control them by feel alone.
-There is a difference between deliberate practice and ball bashing. Deliberate practice is highly demanding, it's not much fun and needs to be done on a regular basis.
