Junior Golf Group Lessons
Every Saturday morning the practice areas at Abridge are filled with the next generation of young golfers. They are taking part in the Junior Golf Group Lessons with PGA Professional Jack Winer.
The emphasis is on fun through all sports
Jack explains that the junior group lessons for the 4-12 age group are about having fun. He introduces the fundamental movement skills which develops their desire to become better at golf.
The children are encouraged to take part in various sports that include playing tennis, football and tag. Therefore this will include throwing, jumping, catching, skipping and balancing drills.
During the group lessons, Jack is looking to naturally build their muscles and make them stronger through all sports.
But most importantly, he wants the juniors to enjoy the group sessions. As a result, they will ask their parents to bring them back each week.
As you can see in these videos other sports do correlate with golf. The body responds to these different types of movement skills and show how they are very similar to golf.
In conclusion you will notice how the lower body sets the appropriate sequence of movement to give a similar finishing position.
Jack goes onto explain that he takes great satisfaction in watching junior golfers becoming mini athletes. It is not by luck that we have started to see the development of some great young golfers from these group lessons.
For instance, some of the juniors that started in group classes are now having individual 1:1 lessons and playing golf to a good standard.
Jack host hosts his group classes every Saturday morning from 10:00-11:00 and the cost is just £6 per person.
