Yeah, sure I would, Martin. Very good. I knew you would. So what we're going to do is put this- we're not gonna try and hit the ball. We're going to put the club head probably 12 inches behind the ball on the ground. Now you're going to drag that towel and it's a nice, steady pace not flicking the towel off the club head. Drag it, drag it, drag it, drag it, keep on coming, keep on coming, very, very good. One more time. Now that's a steady, dragging of the club head. There's no hit in that. So it's just like you're dragging a wet towel , dragging, dragging, dragging, dragging, dragging, nice and steady. Good. Now when you hit your golf ball, when you chip your golf ball,
School of Golf Junior Academy: Pitching pointers
School of Golf’s Martin Hall shows a junior from The First Tee how a beach ball can make you more consistent around the green. Watch 'School of Golf' Wednesdays 7PM ET.pleased to be joined by Nina Cruz from The First Tee of Central Florida . Thank you for stopping by- -Thank you for having me- -You're going to be a celebrity after this. How about that? Now, pitching, very important. You can't play if you don't pitch well. I've got household items here. I've got a brush. I've got a towel. I've got a fairly useless beach ball and in fact, this is the one we're going to use for pitching. And why would I want you to use a golf ball ? I've got a ball in one roll and a beach ball in one roll because if you put this underinflated beach ball between your elbows and have part of it rest against your tummy or your trunk, you rest against the elbows, and then you make a nice little, sort of, three-quarter swing going back arm- left arm about parallel to the ground and right arm about parallel going through. A little bit of wrist hinge, you see. What this does, it's a wonderful way- it's a wonderful way to tie together what you do with your arms and what you do with your body, so important for pitching. So, that's the drill. It's going to be, put the beach ball there, keep it there. I keep my body moving. Are you ready? -Yes. -I think you're up for this. So, squash it in there, hands on the club. It'll feel a little uncomfortable to start with but as you go back, swing there, keeping the 2 elbows touching the beach ball and I want a bit of wrist action, young lady. There we are. Come down. Let the club head brush the grass and then as you come through, I want a little bit of wrist action. But at all times, your 2 elbows are touching the beach ball and the beach ball is just touching your chest. Okay. So, a couple of practice swings, you need to brush the grass with it. How old
