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.

Hitting From Downhill Lies Level your body to the slope, swing on the plane of the slope and turn your body through
Arm Motion In Swing In a one plane swing your arms are closer to your body and swing across your chest; in a two plane swing has the arms swinging up and down
How To Align Your Stance Straight Many slicers hit the ball to the right simply because they are lined up to the right, when they go to hit the ball their mind knows the target is to the left and then subconsciously changes the swing to outside in so that the club travels towards the target causing a slice
