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.

Downhill Lies Club trajectory is severely affected on downhill shots. Take a more lofted club, adjust your weight and chase your swing down the hill
Sweet Spot of the Putter Hitting the ball with the sweet spot of the putter allows the putter face to stay square and not twist
Wrist Cock Drill This drill is great for people stuck in an office or in bad weather, hook the right hand under the left and practice your backswing and downswing with a perfect right and left wrist position
