Best Junior Golf Lessons

As summer is quickly approaching, many parents are looking for the best kids golf lessons for their children. Currently, kids golf classes or junior camps are starting to look much different than they did just a few short years ago.

Junior golf lessons used to typically be taught by a young assistant golf professional trying to cut their teeth in the world of golf instruction. To no fault of the young assistant, they would stand on the driving range and drill all of the students with “all of his knowledge.” In order to do this they would blabber big words that they thought made them sound smart but the kids had no idea what they were talking about. Understandably, the kids thought it was boring and many did not want to return for the second day of camp. Many of these students attended the rest of the week not wanting to be there. This was difficult on the student and the instructor as well.

As more and more research has been conducted, the best junior golf lessons incorporate many activities into a camp that may look like something else but can relate back to the movements in the golf swing. What are we talking about? We are talking about having relay races where the students under-hand range balls into a plastic kiddie pool full of water and ice. Why would we do this at a youth golf camp? We are teaching the campers the shape of the pitching motion. When under-handing the ball towards the pool, they do not want to wind up so far that their hand ends up by their head on their backswing as they will have to short arm it or guess how hard to swing their arm forward. To do it properly, they will take a motion that will take the arm back a short distance and accelerate longer on the forward motion. It will look just like a pitching motion when done correctly. In addition, the kids have a blast since they are split up into teams and it is a race.

Other camps are having students go through activities that build their core, agility and stability. Some of the best junior golf lessons can be taught by setting up an obstacle course which the children have to run, jump, tumble and stretch in order to complete. Not only will it build many of the assets needed to play good golf, they will have fun and want to keep playing this great game.Others use various size golf clubs or balls that range from golf balls to volley balls that are made of various materials.

Understandably, not all parents comprehend how some of these other activities relate to golf. Please do not get me wrong, the golf swing, putting, chipping and pitching still need to be taught. However, depending on the age, the development as well as the maturity of the child, if they do not find the game fun…they are not going to want to play. By developing the skills, flexibility and muscles needed to play the game, not only will they want to play now but they will want to play for many years to come. Is that not the goal that we have as parents? Give out child something that they can play and build relationships with for a lifetime?

Putting Drills - Are They All Good?

Many golfers want putting drills to help them improve their stroke and get the ball in the hole faster. Many golfers will hear that a friend used a golf putting drill that helped them and make the mistake that the same drill will help them too. Here are a few reasons why it does not work that way and what you should be looking for to find the best putting drills to improve your game.

Learning Styles
There are three major learning styles auditory, feel and visual. Auditory would be that the way that you best consume information is hearing it. For example, an instructor can simply tell you to do something different, you hear it and you can do it. Learning through feel you have to be able to feel the new movement before you can begin to learn it. Most golfers are visual and like to be shown something and then try to repeat it. One is not better than another, it is simply that we are build or wired differently. The putting lesson your friend may have received was for a visual learner. How…

Are You Taking Putting Lessons?

For some reason students seem reluctant to take putting lessons. I do not quite understand this as improving your putting is the fastest way to lower your scores.

I think that students do not want to take putting lessons for a couple of reasons…
Doing work on the range trying to hit the ball far and straight feels and sounds sexier and more fun than improving your putting with a putting drill. Many players like to compare themselves by how far they can hit not only the driver but also their irons. I always preferred to have the lowest score at the end of the round and collect my winnings. I figured that was impressive enough!People in general do not like to do things that they are not good at. I am guilty of this myself with my putting. Why go and get frustrated on the practice putting green when I can go to the driving range to hit good shots that I know that I can hit? Many times ego gets in the way.Another reason is one that actually does not fall on the student but the instructor.…

Member Question - How To Control Putting Speed

Member Question: I have a hard time with hitting two putts in a row the same speed. Even on the practice green, my putting speed is horrible. I can try to hit a ball about 15 feet and try to hit a second ball to barely touch it. The second ball rarely comes close to being close to the first ball. Sometimes it is long and sometimes it is short. The result is just not consistent. Any putting tips to help me with my putting speed?

Thank you for your question. When students are that inconsistent with speed of putts or distance control, it is typically because they are not hitting the putts solid.

Now, what does that mean in English? In hitting any shot solid it means that you hit the club-face in the same spot on every stroke. If you need to know how to find the sweet spot on your putter, it is easy to do. Simply let take your putter by the grip and let it dangle using only your forefinger and thumb. Next take a golf ball and start tapping the putter face. Once the club head goes straigh…
