Re: Shooting & Golf
Anticipating recoil. The best medicine is a high dose of range time with a drill instructor. We're talking 1000 rounds in three days.
After that, some dry fire practice and range time should keep the anticipation pull to a minimum.

Practice...practice...practice...maybe have someone else load your weapon (or not). When they hand it to you it may have a round in the chamber or not. The first time you light one off with an empty chamber you'll see pretty quickly what you're doing.
Ditto on the "PRACTICE"...A few inches low when aiming at center mass isn't all bad.
5 - 8 inches at 7 yards translates to 15 - 24 inches low at 21 yards. That's a pretty bad flinch.
Ditto. Anticipating recoil and flinching are the major culprits most of the time.
Just like with golf or anything else involving a specialized skill you have to practice.
Double ear protection will help with the flinch as well. Loud noises make us flinch - we are human.
Soft ear plugs + Ear muffs
Try using a mag instead of a clip bet that will help a bunch:tongue:
If you have never had it or even if you have and it's been some time since you did, get some professional training by a certified instructor with quality credentials such as NRA certification.

As others have said you want perfect practice. You do not want to be practicing your mistakes.
