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.

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
