In this first segment, Coach focuses on ball position at the tee in relation to the golf club and the golfer's body. The position of the golf ball varies depending on the golf club used and the individual swing style of the golfer as demonstrated in this video.
The golfer may have to make adjustments in ball position, swing style, and even club selection to hit successfully in windy conditions. The object is to make the adjustments necessary to "take the wind out of the shot," so control of the golf ball is maintained as explained and demonstrated in this segment.
Swinging in the rain? Okay, bad pun, sorry, but there's nothing funny about trying to hit in wet conditions. The swing will be slower and the golfer has to plan on the shot being 20 to 25 yards shorter. The goal is to get the golf ball in to play. Here, Coach discusses swing and club adjustments when water is a factor on the course.
"The worse thing you can do after making a bad shot is to follow it with a dumb shot." Too often golfers try to "make-up" for the bad shot by making a million dollar shot rather than a good shot that gets the golf ball back into play. In this video, the importance of the mental side of the golf in recovering from errors is discussed.
The proper follow-through is demonstrated in this segment along with discussion of the importance of the follow- through. The discussion then turns to visualization or seeing the golf ball flying down the fairway before you even tee up.
Coach Jennings discusses practice sessions at the collegiate level as this golf series concludes. As with any sport, repetition, repetition, repetition is the key. In the case of golf, working on really controlling the swing during every shot regardless of the conditions.
