Video Golf Tip | Practice Tips For Juniors

Here is a tip for you kids. Whenever you go out to the range you want to use your time the most efficient way possible. You want practice like a pro. For those parents that go out with your kids you want to make sure that your son or daughter is doing the correct thing. Usually when I see a kid go out to the range the first thing they do is go for the big stick. They grab that driver and the next thing you know you see them hitting shots and they are going all over the place. You are never going to see a pro or good golfer doing that. What you are going to see them do instead is grab one of the shortest clubs in their bag, which is usually the pitching wedge. We are going to get out here and we are going to start hitting little half shots. Just kind of bumping the ball forward with little half shots because what we really want to do is establish contact and feel that ball against the clubface. Once we have done that and established contact then we are going to get in to our full swing first starting out with the pitching wedge. We may hit three or four balls or a half dozen balls or as many balls as we have time to practice, but then what we are going to do next is go right down through every club in the bag. The nine, eight, seven, six, five and down to the metals, but the last club we are going to hit is going to be the driver. It is not going to be the first club. So if you want to use your practice time the most efficient way possible, kids, practice like a pro. Parents, make sure your kids are practicing like a pro.
