27th March 2020


Are you ready to play? Keep reading for activities you and your junior golfer can do at home to up your golf games! Before you get started, make sure to warm up to prepare your bodies for physical exercise.

ACTIVITY 1: CHIPPING INSTRUCTION

Before you move on to ACTIVITY 2: TIC-TAC-TOE, prepare by reviewing GASP and the basics of the chip shot.

What will happen to your chip shot if you swing the club all the way back to 11:00?

You will overshoot your shot! 

ACTIVITY 2: TIC-TAC-TOE

Watch Coach Robin demonstrate how you and your family can play “Tic-Tac-Toe,” and don’t worry, this activity can be played with or without golf clubs. You can play using a soft object, like a pillow or a balled-up pair of socks, as long as you use the same chip shot motion as you would with a club.

 

ACTIVITY 3: NAME THE PARTS OF THE COURSE

A golf course is made up of a series of holes, typically either nine or eighteen. The lengths of the holes, penalty areas, and challenges differ hole-to-hole and course-to-course. Click here to see all of the parts of the course.

ACTIVITY 4: INTERACTIVE QUIZZES

In golf we respect our opponents, ourselves, and the course. Players are responsible for self reporting rule breaks.

Three ways to demonstrate respect when playing golf are:

1) Make honest rule calls.

2) Remain quiet when others are taking a shot.

3) Repair the course and leave it clean.

Can you list two ways you can practice respect at home?

    This was always the shot I had the most fun practicing when I was a junior. If you can chip well, then you are definitely on your way to eliminating those double bogeys and to giving yourself more legitimate chances to make par.
