    Tip of the Week With Brad Redding (Feb. 6)

    All golfers want and love to hit the golf ball farther. One of the key ingredients is for the golf club to travel faster. A lot of juniors don’t have the arm, wrist and finger strength to swing the club faster. As a result, they will try to use their body, which only leaves the club behind...

    Tip of the Week with Brad Redding (Jan. 16)

    I need to help juniors understand how a club face gets the golf ball into the air. Many juniors (and a lot of older golfers) try to “lift” the golf ball into the air, so they try to get under the golf ball. This motion exposes the sole to the ball, not the club face. I have developed...

    Weekly golf tip with Brad Redding (Dec. 26)

    In the early development of a junior golfer I want to establish some fundamental movement skills. One of those is learning how to disassociate your body. This means your upper body and lower body turn in opposite directions in the golf swing. In the backswing, the upper body turns with minimal lower...

    Brad Redding’s Tip of the Week (Dec. 5)

    I want to simulate a golf swing as much as possible, but I also want to promote a good motion, give a high success rate and make it as much fun as possible. Use the tennis racquet with a tennis ball teed up with a shaft and tee. Place both hands on the racquet and position it behind the ball. From...

    Brad Redding’s Tip of the Week (Nov. 28)

    I want the kids to hit the ball as soon as they can. In baseball, the most fun part of practice was batting practice. Standing in left field wasn’t much fun. The important part is I want them to develop the correct motion, have success early and have fun. So we start with a tennis racquet...

    Weekly golf tip with Brad Redding (Oct. 31)

    Junior golfers need to develop fundamental movement skills, establish functional movement patterns, develop sport specific skills, gain golf-specific skills and, most importantly, create a love for the game. I believe in long-term athletic development. This approach focuses on having kids perform...

    Weekly golf tip with Brad Redding (Oct. 3)

    Catching ball then ground is the proper impact you want if you tend to have a shallow downswing. A great way to feel this impact is to get your body angled to the left. What you want to do is get your right foot higher than your left. Hitting these shots will help you steepen your downswing and ...

    Weekly golf tip with Brad Redding (Sept. 26)

    You can learn where the club shaft and face should be at impact by doing slow-motion drills. Get a board like the one in the photo and make slow-motion downswings to impact. The leading edge of the club face should be flush against the board with the club shaft leaning slightly forward of the club...

    Weekly golf tip with Brad Redding (Sept. 19)

    Use a dozen-golf ball box or even a head cover for this tip. Set up with the toe of the club about 3 inches from the box. Hit balls and note where the impact is. If the impact is farther away from the box or you hit the box, make adjustments in distance at address and swing. As you get better, move...
