Devan Bonebrake: Junior Golf Tips

Devan Bonebrake, from Carlsbad, CA, gives us several golf drills that you can do to help your junior golfer get better while having fun!

Part of the Golf Channel Academy, Devan Bonebrake was recently named to Golf Digest’s list of “Best Young Teachers in America”. He is here to show us a couple of drills that can really help your junior golfer/s (specifically in the short game areas).

The first drill is called “Leave it in the Attic.”  A drill to help with speed control and lag putting 10, 20, 30 feet from the hole. The second is the “Ladder Drill.” This helps with learning your chipping distances. If you are able to chip the golf ball in the designated areas between the clubs, you can chip on any green on any course with greens soft or firm. Last is the “Spiral Putting Drill,” to help with making those short putts! Check out all these drills and use them next time you are out on the course.

Marc Albert Chipping Drill

Marc Albert Chipping Drill

Marc Albert is the Senior Instructor at the Dave Pelz Scoring Schools. He talks to Golf Life about hitting short pitch shots near the green. Many times, these shots are the hardest to hit in the game of golf because it requires some finesse. When you are that close to the green, you tend to chunk it because you don’t want to hit it too hard or you skull it because you don’t want to chunk it. These types of shots are nasty! We want to create stable acceleration through the golf ball to get the shot we need.

Marc demonstrates this by using a medicine ball and how the medicine ball allows your body to go back and allows your body to go forward through the golf ball.
