They provide golfers with free golf tips, tournament information and self-help peak performance golf training. The website is designed to learn the correct fundamentals and have fun playing the game. Today's golf lesson is the Bouncing Ball. It is a golf exercise that is used to developed the hand eye coordination of your hands. A great short game will rely on a great pair of hands.

Bouncing a golf ball on a wedge can break up the monotony of waiting for the next hole to open. While players have been juggling balls off their wedges for a while, the trick became popularized when Tiger Woods filmed a commercial featuring some tricky bounces, culminating in hitting the ball midair. While the final shot is dangerous, anyone can learn the juggling portion of the trick.

Step 1    Choose a wedge you like. Use a wedge in which the face angle provides a flat surface with the most amount of loft. I like to use the lob wedge or sand wedge.

Step 2 Choke up when gripping the club, usually half way down is good.

Step 3 Place your thumb on to of the shaft

Step 4 Club face is parallel to the ground

Step 5 Put the golf ball on some high grass

Step 6 A quick scoop up and pop it up and start bouncing

Step 7 Try to bounce the ball about 6 -12 inches at a consistent height

Step 8 Blink your eyes and stay focused on hitting the center of the club face

Step 9 Try to 100 in a row. The hard part is doing the first 10 and don't give up.

Doing these exercises will help you with your feel around the greens and your short game in general.
