Get ready to smile, because today we’re bringing you the half swing! Before you get started, make sure to warm up to prepare your bodies for physical exercise.

REVIEW: HALF-SWING INSTRUCTION

Coach Ryan is back to showcase the half-swing. Remember to start with GASP and then Keep Swinging!®

ACTIVITY 1: TOSS GOLF

“Toss Golf” is a great way to practice your swing at home, because you don’t need golf clubs or balls to do so. Start with your half-swing, but keep this game in mind for chipping, L-swing, and even full-swing.

ACTIVITY 2: SCORING IN GOLF

Golf scores are based on the total score of all holes in the round. Unlike most sports, the lowest score in golf wins! The best score you can make in golf is a hole-in-one. Take a look at some hole-in-one fun facts here.

ACTIVITY 3: GROWTH MINDSET & MEDITATION STRATEGIES

Thinking with a “growth mindset” can help us face challenges. Combined with meditation strategies, you can set yourself up for positivity.
