Video Golf Tip | Green Etiquette for Juniors

Whenever I am working with kids, whenever I bring them over to a green, the first thing I do with them is I sit them down on the grass. I don’t even let them go on the green. Once again, with kids you do not want to assume anything, you want to teach them. They will learn. What I am actually going to do is I am going to talk to the kids about the greens being a very special place and they can get damaged very easily. You never take a full swing on the green with a golf club and the only golf club you are going to use on a green is your putter. It is going to be a very small stoke using nothing more than the elephant’s truck and just go back and forth with it. I am also going to point out to the kids that if I just walk on green and scrape my foot lightly they can see how it is starting to cause a little bit of damage on that green, so I have to be very careful. But I also want them to understand things. They are not to sit on the green. They are not to kneel down, they are not to lie on the greens and I definitely do not want to see any running on the green. Just because I told that kid not to run on the green do you think that is going to stop them? I may have to tell him several times before he actually stops running on the greens. But the thing is golf is just repeat, repeat, repeat. You have to say it enough, do it enough, until it becomes a habit. It is the same thing with the etiquette of golf. I will not let a child get on the green without explaining the proper etiquette of the green to them before they get on there. I suggest you do the same.

Tee Time Deals

Tuesday, Mar 20 to Sunday, Mar 25

Increasing Distance: Balance the Backswing Have a 90 degree angle when turning the shoulders, bending the right arm and cocking the wrist for a balanced backswing
Ball Below Your Feet Bend at the hips, not the knees, and swing the club more up and down
Backswing: How Far Back? A backswing that is too long may feel like it is creating more power but it is destroying your fundamentals, grab a range bucket with both hands and swing it as far back as you can go, that should be where your backswing ends
