Sunday 6th October 2019 Somerset Girls Futures South Coaching.

 

The start of our winter programme of Futures South coaching was blessed with good weather and all the girls were a real credit, with great behaviour,

etiquette and some real talent!

 

Our session started with getting to know each other and distributing the Somerset Girls polo shirts and headbands – please try to wear these to every session.  I also would like each player to bring with them a small simple notebook and pencil so that we can write down some individual points from the sessions.  The main coaching points were:

 

Short game:

 

•Weight distributed 70/30 on front foot

•Create a hitting station (parallel clubs) to improve alignment

•Length of shot determined on length of backswing - through swing should be as least the same length as back swing.

•Make sure you stay down on the shot and brush the turf

 

Long game:

•Build a pre shot routine that includes face and body alignment

•Simplify the swing – turn your back to the target

•Trophy Pose finish and hold for 3 seconds!

 

Looking forward to Sunday 10th November 1pm – 4pm for our next session.
