Categorize Kids By Ability

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.

Re-Align Your Swing Plane Our swing plane is just like a circle that moves from horizontal to vertical but we must keep that circle on the same plane throughout our swing
Selecting A Grip Strength Grip strengths are categorized as strong, standard and weak; select one that is best for you and learn to groove your swing with it
Perfect Impact Position You should be able to hear a perfect impact because the club hits the ball then the ground creating one sound, if you bottom out too early you will hear the impact of the club on the ground then the ball being hit
