Video Golf Tip | Set Up Routine for Juniors

Kids, you need to understand that golf is a game of habits and the earlier we create those habits the better things that can happen to you. It is going to take a while for that one, two, three, four to materialize and I never want you to stop working on that, but there are a lot of other things that you need to be working on at the same time. When you go out to the range to hit balls I want you to work on your set up. When you come up to the ball I want you to take the club, put the clubhead right behind the ball with the heel, toe and sole flat on the ground right behind the ball. That lets the face set up right where you want the ball to go. I want you next to put your feet together facing right at the ball and then spread your feet out right under your shoulders. When we do that it is basically your clubface position and that is your body position. That is a funny word called alignment and most kids can not even spell that word right now, but we always have them working on something. So when kids come out to the range and hit the ball I always insist on them doing the same thing. Take one full practice swing with the one, two, three, four and then set up to the ball by putting the club down first, heel, toe and sole flat on the ground. Feet together second, spread out right under their shoulders, and then rip that ball. Then do it again.
