If Beman was facing a shot that was 125 yards to the flagstick and if his pitching wedge was the club that would cause the ball to travel that exact distance, he would use that club! Choosing the right club for each shot boiled down to a science for Deane Beman.
Most golfers initially frowned upon this particular golf strategy. However, in just a very short period of time, the method of choosing the right golf club, by knowing exactly how it will cause the ball to travel, has become the standard for most players of today.
Another famous golf player, Jack Nicklaus, learned this exact technique from Mr. Beman and by using it went on to become one of the greatest golf players of all-time.
Even though specific clubs are designed for long shots and other clubs were made for shorter ones, the distance that different players can hit the very same club will vary tremendously. This is why so many beginner golfers do not get the results they want from a club that is supposed to hit the ball in a certain way.
The best way to learn specifically what your child can accomplish with each Golf clubs for kids is to find a large field that is big enough to handle the travel distance of your son or daughter longest drive. Make sure that there are no windy conditions that day, and of course be positive that the field is empty for obvious safety reasons.
Now take out each club and ask your son or daughter to hit 7 to 10 shots with every one. After each shot, measure the distance by pacing off how far each ball traveled. In order to measure correctly, you need to read the distance in yards.
In order to do this, simply take out a yardstick and take one step forward to cover the entire length. All you have to do now is take the same strides and walk the distance of each swing to learn exactly how many yards each one of your son or daughter clubs will hit the ball.
By now your son or daughter probably realize just how effective it is to know their clubs, so to speak. You need to practice this same strategy as the professionals did in the past so that your son and daughter can start hitting their ball as close to the intended target as possible.
Remember, if your son or daughter does not have a clear idea of approximately how far he/she hit the ball with each of his/her clubs, they will repetitively hit shots that are either too far or too short, and their scorecard will prove it.
So, do yourself a favor and take the time to remove the guesswork of how far your child’s golf clubs will hit the ball. Not only will his/her score improve, but also their accuracy and concentration levels will increase.
