Video Golf Tip | Getting Girls into Golf

Here is a tip for you parents that have daughters, and I use this as an example in every school I go in to and last year I was in 20 schools alone in Collier County, so I get in front of a lot of kids and I have a lot of young ladies in front of me, and I always say the same things. I ask them, how many of you girls would like to go to college some day raise your hands, and a lot of hands go up. Then I say how many of you kids would like to have someone else pay for it, and they kind of look strange to me, and then I will say I will tell you what, if I am one of your parents standing here I am going to put both of my hands in the air. You girls have a great opportunity and you parents with girls have a great opportunity. There is a lot of scholarship money every year that is not used, and I underline the words not used, for girls to go to college to play golf. There are just not a lot of lady golfers for all of it to go around. What I have been told by PGA officials is basically if a lady can shoot, or a girl can shoot, in the mid-80s that can lead to a full scholarship to a Division III school. If you can shoot in the mid-70s you are looking at a Division I school. So there are a lot of reasons why girls might want to take up the game of golf. Another reason is that the number one reason ladies come to me for lessons is they want to play golf with their husbands, it is as simple as that. There are a lot of reasons why girls might want to take up golf and parents you may want to lean them in that direction.

Get More Distance To get more distance, turn your torso in the backswing not your hips
One-Plane Finish Because of the rounded arm swing in the one plane swing the finish features a flatter finish position with your hands lower and further from your head.
Slice Fix: Grip Change As much as you might hate changing your grip a weak grip is the most common slice fault because you are in a position where your hands can not rotate through the swing
