Make Sure You Measure By Using The Average Distance
In part one of this article series, you were instructed to ask your junior to hit 7 to 10 balls with each club and measure the distance in yards. One of the first things you will realize is that your son and/or daughter cannot hit the ball as far as they thought they could, before getting a solid understanding of each club's capabilities.
Remember that one mistake that amateur golfers make when breaking down their distances is using the longest distance measured when playing a real game.
Leave Room For Error When Playing A Real Game A real golf game will not have the same ideal conditions in which you were accustomed to during your test measures.
Junior golfers will never be able to make contact with the ball perfectly square and hitting the club face's sweet spot each and every time. The same goes for professional golfers. So the key to using this strategy is to use the average distance of each club during a golf game.
Once your son or daughter has a crystal-clear idea of exactly how far each of his/her clubs will cause the ball to travel, his/her self-confidence and clarity on the golf course will improve tremendously.
All of the guesswork is taken out of his/her shot and your son or daughter are left with technique and full knowledge of their capabilities in terms of how far they can knowingly hit the ball with whatever club they choose.
