It's very important to have good practice routines. It's kind of like going to the gym to workout in the weightroom. There should be a routine for each workout. There might be different routines for different days, but there is still a routine. The same should be said for golf, have routines. There are two drills, one for routine practice and the other to practice a round of golf from one position. There are links to other resources included on this page.
Golf Lesson 2 is part of an eight lesson plan unit. The focus is on course etiquette. The proper grip and how to setup are introduced. After practicing and checking proper grip and setup routines, weight distribution is discussed. This lesson plan is part of a unit and luckily there are links to other parts of the unit at the bottom of the page.
Everything you wanted to know about golf, and then some! This is a very thorough presentation. There are great pictures, diagrams, and explanations of all the basic components of the game of golf. There's also a little bit of history, how to play the game, and safety tips. The presentation also offers techniques for the different clubs and strokes used in golf. It would be well worth using this PowerPoint to introduce golf to your class.
Many know disc golf by another name, that would be, Frisbee golf. Check out this presentation on the different elements of the game, like how to hold and throw the disc. Great pictures and explanations. It makes me want to pick up a Frisbee, go outside, and throw it around a bit. Note: I would change the slide order so that the backhand throw is with the three-finger and four-finger grip.
Fore! This golf lessons runs the class through a few skills: putting, chipping, and mid-range shots. There are teaching cues for each of the strokes taught. The cues are pretty good for most of the topics. There are several types of grips listed for putting, but no description of how the hands and fingers are positioned for each of them. Otherwise, there is a lot here, and it could be spread out over several days to allow for more class practice time.
Set up a circle with markers for the hours of the clock to practice putting skills for golf. The circle can be as big as is appropriate to give your class practice at putting. Perhaps start out with a small circle, and as they get better, widen the circle to increase the distance that they putt. Have six or fewer players in each circle so they are spaced out. Place a target hole within the circle, but not in the direct center. The players then take turns putting to the target. After they all have a turn, they retrieve their balls and rotate a space on the clock. Provide a 12-spot scorecard to keep track of their putting scores from each position.
