Good Morning All,
It was great to see everyone yesterday, Dave and I hope you all enjoyed the first session. I was extremely pleased with everyone’s enthusiasm for the training, even in the cold weather, and I believe we have a fantastic group moving through all the sessions.
We started the session with a warm up to increase our heart rates and stretch our muscles to help keep warm throughout the day and be ready for the session. Remember a warm up is really important before any playing or practising to help your performance and reduce injuries.
The main objective of the session was to achieve a better strike with a mid iron off the floor. A better strike will help with hitting the ball higher and further. Remember the following are the main points of focus to help improve your strike:
- ball position (middle of the feet)
- width of feet (shoulder width)
- posture (tilt from the hips, slight knee flex and straight back)
We know when a good strike is achieved as you will be able to hear that crisp sound of the club and the mat.
Well done Anna and Phoebe for getting the most balls over the water in our final game of the session. I would like everyone to keep practising hearing that CRISP strike before next session, where we will play the game again and see how we have improved.
I look forward to seeing everyone next time on Sunday 16th December.
