Each of the canes has different angles. The lower the number of degrees of inclination, the greater the length and, therefore, the greater the distance. The greater the number of degrees of inclination, the higher the ball will take and the less distance with more effect.
At most, 14 batons can be played on the field.
To start playing golf you have to have a previous warm up with stretching and static movements of elasticity, at least 10 to 12 minutes. Once the warm-up is over, you have to practice between 10 to 15 minutes with the putt on the putting green and later it is advisable to throw 30 balls in practice with different sticks, ending with the drive, which is with the stick with which you will go to play on hole 1.
Exit to the field
When leaving the field it is very important the grip to make a good swing with a smooth movement to be able to have a good hit. The look always looks at the ball.
The grip is the way we put our hands on the cane to get a big hit and make a good swing.
The grip is very important because the placement of our hands on the golf club allows to control the orientation of the face of the same at the time of impact (open or closed) and as a result, have more fluidity and more power in the movement.
In the swing, you have to be well balanced and with good posture.
The posture should be anchored to the knees, back straight, parallel feet, shoulders parallel to the target and fixed view on the ball.
The face of the baton must be perpendicular to your line of fire (“SQUARE”) so that the ball goes straight to the target with a good impact.
The left arm is kept parallel and straight in the backswing and well stretched in the return at the time of impact. The top of the backswing should be as far as the left shoulder turns, pointing sideways at the ball, and then the return, the left-hand go straight until the impact. You have to make a good swing to hit the ball “With a good swing I have the opportunity to connect with the ball”. In the downward movement I use the lower part, which is the hip to give power to the impact, it is a light movement, soft and with determination.
