Video Golf Tip | Categorize Kids By Ability

You will hear me talk a lot about kids and juniors, to me the term is interchangeable but if it were up to me I would separate them. To me they need another category. A kid to me is a six to twelve year old and a thirteen to eighteen year old can be called a junior, but that is not up to me to decide. What I will do is I can show you the difference in abilities. I have a nine year old boy right here that is going to show you how to hit a flop shop. What we are going to do is talk you through what happens right here. Luke, what I want you to do is put the club down behind the ball and open up that club real wide. With your stance, open it up real wide. Now he is going to hit the ball pretty hard when he hits it. Go ahead. That is how you hit a flop shot. Once again to me it is not the age, it is the ability you should be looking at.

Cure For Push Shots: Ball Position Playing the ball too far back in your stance causes you to make contact while the club is still swinging to the right of the target
Controlling Distance: Swing Softly Take swings trying to just hum while keeping the tempo and volume of the hum constant
Three Grip Pressure Points There are several ways to grip the club but there are three constant pressure points that must be observed in order to generate power and keep your lag through the downswing
