Moulded Grips on Children’s Golf Clubs

By Neil Plimmer | 06 December 2020

I see these on children’s clubs on occasions. Do they work? Are they useful? Do they do more harm than good??? I have never been a fan of these for a number of reasons; the manufacturers make some bold claims in their marketing… “It helps develop a CORRECT swing” “9 iron with training grip has a specially moulded grip for the PROPER hand position. This is a great first club…

By Neil Plimmer | 01 December 2020

Lockdown has given us plenty of extra time and space to do this! Designed, developed and launched in 2011 as a coaching…

Children DO NOT Cheat! “He cheated…” a child came running up to me and said during one of our whole school play days. I always find this split second of them waiting for me to take action fascinating, so many questions go through my mind; Why are they telling me this? What do they expect me to do? What are their thoughts on cheating? Have they ever cheated? Why are…

“Look where your feet are pointing?”

By Neil Plimmer | 14 October 2020

“Look where your feet are pointing?” “Your feet were pointing exactly where the ball has gone” Can be heard on any course and driving range and so often from parents as they watch their children play. Before I begin I just want to add that on OCCASIONS it MAY be important that your feet are aligned with your body in the general direction of your intended target, but NOT always!!!…

Constant Commentary

By Neil Plimmer | 04 October 2020

“Concentrate” “Remember your feet” “Watch the ball” “Brilliant shot, that’s the way to do it” “Slow down” “Not like that, do like you did before” “Keep your arms straight” “Hands together” “You can do better than that” All things that can be heard from parents (and coaches!!!) on any driving rage/practice ground during junior group sessions. And much the same that will be heard from the sides of football, hockey,…

The Struggle of Learning

By Neil Plimmer | 01 June 2020

“I will buy you some LEGO if you get to 10…” My son took the bait!!! Let the struggle begin!!! Over the weekend we have spent a lot of time in the garden with the beautiful weather we had. During lockdown we have left lots of bats, balls and equipment out in the garden to keep us engaged and active. My son picked up a skipping rope on Saturday evening…
