Video Golf Tip | Fairway Bunkers for Juniors

This is very important when you are teaching kids. You can not teach a kid something that they are not ready for. So if a kid hits it in the bunker and he is basically a new golfer all I am going to do is tell the kid to walk into the bunker and hit the ball out of there. He does not know any different, he is going to go in there, he is going to take a couple of swings at it and eventually he is going to get that ball out of the trap or out of the bunker. As a kid gets more advanced I am going to tell him a few more things but I am still going to keep it simple. In the case of here with a fairway bunker shot all I am going to ask them to do is get in the trap, make sure they do not ground the club, plant their feet, now I want them to move this ball back in their stance about half a ball in their stance because they have to hit the ball first before the sand, and that is the only thought I am going to give that kid. So he gets up here, puts the ball back about half a ball in his stance, and then I ask him to rip it. When you are dealing with kids you need to keep it simple, you need to show them techniques, but you can only introduce it to them when they are ready for it. You need to understand that.

Importance and Execution of Pitch Shots Pitching is the most important part of the golf swing, so practice it and not only will your short game improve but also your full swing
Find Your Correct Swing Plane Analyze your ball’s flight to determine if you have the correct swing plane
One-Plane Over-the-Top Cure If you commonly come over the top and slice the ball the one plane swing is a great solution because you are bent over more and naturally attack the ball from the inside.
