A lot of kids when they first start putting I see an awful lot of kids just jabbing at the ball when they are swinging it. This also applies to adults as well. What I am saying is that when they putt the club down and hit it they kind of jab at the ball like this and they just kind of push it. Here is a tip that can help them get out of that. I call it one-two-three. All I am going to have the kids do is once they set the ball up I am going to have them put the club down behind the ball, heel, toe and sole just like they know how to do, feet together, spread them out and then I am going to ask them to think one, two and three. One is going to be a little forward press with my hands. Two is I am going to bring the club back here. Three is I am going to go through. It looks like this. One, two, three. One, two, three. If I can get them to think about that it is really going to make their stroke a lot smoother and we can get rid of those jabs. I suggest you try it with your kids.
