How to Help Young Golfers Perfect Their Swing

Whenever you have your child out on the golf course you want them working on something. We just went through showing the kids the golf swing, the one, two, three, four. Now what we are going to do is get ready to hit balls, but when they hit balls once again I want them to work on something. I am going to turn to the young ladies over here and I am going to ask them to do this.

  • Put your feet together, spread your feet out, I want a full practice swing with the one, two, three, four. One, two, three, four.
  • Now I want you to put the clubhead behind the ball, heel, toe and sole flat on the ground, put your feet together Sammy, now spread your feet out under your shoulders and go ahead and rip that ball. One, two, three, four.
  • Hold that finish position.

Golf Routine and Alignment

Good job young lady. Good job. Now, you will notice what I did was put them through a routine. The important thing about this routine is that what I have them doing just by having them setting up with the club down behind the ball, the heel, toe and sole flat on the ground, putting their feet together and spreading their feet out, you will notice that I am working on clubface alignment and body alignment and they probably can not even spell that word yet. But while we are waiting for those swings to materialize we always want them working on something. In this case here it is their routine and their alignment. So if you want your kids to become good golfers take time to spend with them but always have them working on something when they are out on the course.
