短いバーディパットを外すなど取りこぼしも多かったラウンドに納得はしていない

短いバーディパットを外すなど取りこぼしも多かったラウンドに納得はしていない 「午前組がグリーンで良いコロガリを出せると思う」と語る石川、8時スタートの2日目はどこまでスコアを伸ばせるか
<TOSHIN GOLF TOURNAMENT IN 涼仙 初日◇6日◇涼仙ゴルフ倶楽部(7,169ヤード・パー72)>

 国内男子ツアー「TOSHIN GOLF TOURNAMENT IN 涼仙」が開幕。今大会初出場の石川遼は6バーディ・2ボギーの“68”で回り、4アンダー36位タイで初日を終えた。

 石川は3番、4番とバーディを奪うと、その後もチャンスを量産し上々の立ち上がりをみせる。3アンダーで迎えた9番パー5では、右のフェアウェイバンカーから打ったセカンドショットがグリーン左サイド林の木に“なる”トラブルでボギー。さらに12番でもボギーを叩き1アンダーまでスコアを落としたが、終盤3つのバーディで盛り返しなんとか上位に喰らいついた。

1打速報で初日の全ショットを振り返る

 それでも、4アンダーというスコアに納得はしていない。「悪くはなかったですけど、感覚的にはパープレー。2つの2オンできるパー5、短いパー4とかを考えると、パー68くらいの雰囲気でやらないと上にはいけない」。最終18番パー5は2オンに成功しながらも3パットでパー、そのほかのホールでも短いバーディパットを外すなど、取りこぼしも多かった。

 選手のスパイクマークで“荒れた”グリーンでのプレーでグリーン上で苦しむことは午後組の宿命とはいえ、出場138選手中103選手がアンダーを出したバーディ合戦の中では物足りないのが正直なところ。「午前組がグリーンで良いコロガリを出せると思う。そういう意味では楽しみ」。明日こそ“パー68”でアンダーをマークしてみせる。

 中国のミッション・ヒルズCC、ブラックストーンCで現地時間28日に行われたタイガー・ウッズ(米)とのエキシビションマッチは、がっぷり四つの大激戦となった。タイガーの1打リードで迎えた12番パー5では、タイガーがおよそ3メートル、マキロイもおよそ1.5メートルに2オンさせるスーパーショットを披露。揃ってイーグル奪取し、続く13番もお互いバーディで一歩も譲らない展開となった。

 14番でマキロイがバーディを奪って追いつき、17番でタイガーがボギーを叩いて逆転に成功。最終18番でタイガーがイーグルパットを決められず、バーディで締めたマキロイがわずか1打差で勝利を収めた。

 タイガーが娘から風邪をうつされ体調不良だったとはいえ、もともと自分のヒーローだったNo.1ゴルファーに勝ったことで、マキロイは「タイガーを倒せるなら、すべてのトーナメントを中国でやりたい」と笑いが止まらなかった。

 昨年の全米プロゴルフ選手権でメジャー2勝目を挙げ、世界ランクトップとなったマキロイだったが、その後は低迷。今年はこれまでほとんど良いところなしだっただけに、エキシビションマッチとはいえ、タイガーに勝ったことは大きな喜びだったようだ。

 マキロイはこのまま今週のWGC-HSBCチャンピオンズ(現地時間31~11月3日/中国、シャーシャン・インターナショナルGC)に出場するが、タイガーを撃破した勢いで、勝利に向かって突き進みたい。

 一方のタイガーはHSBCチャンピオンズを欠場。次週の欧州ツアー、ターキッシュ・エアラインズ・オープンに出場する。

Please don't ever think of the batting tee as boring. You will benefit tremendously if you learn how to use it properly. A great baseball hitting device that saves valuable time, especially if you are struggling.

The batting tee is an extremely valuable baseball hitting tool but only when it is used properly. It is very versatile and can be set up almost anywhere and by no means is a baseball field even required. During bad weather for example, you can hang an old piece of carpeting against the garage wall, set up your tee, and start hacking away.

I would highly recommend that anyone who is serious about their baseball hitting should own one. (And no, I don't sell them nor am I affiliated with anyone who sells them.) Sometimes it takes many, many repetitions to break a bad habit before muscle memory takes place and using the batting tee can speed up the entire process. Instead of getting just 10 swings in practice, you can get an additional 100 off a batting tee in no time at all. If a player is struggling at the plate, life will be made much easier if he can get back on the right track in a day or so instead of a couple of weeks.

What's Necessary To Get The Most Benefit From The Batting Tee:

1) That it's set up properly.

2) That you take the same swing that you would normally take in a live game. If you are willing to spend your time, you are certainly entitled to reap the benefits.

3) Position yourself and the ball on the tee so it is at the point where you would be making normal contact with a live pitch.

4) A good place to set up the ball is across from your front striding foot, before the stride is taken. You can change this as you see fit because you are the one doing the hitting.

5) Waist high is a good height when working off the batting tee on your overall swing but you can vary the height of the batting tee if you want to practice at a specific height. Feel free to position the tee so you can practice hitting both inside and outside pitches as well. Use the flexibility of the tee to your advantage. Too often players just set it up waist high and start hacking. If you want to work on a specific location, feel free to move the tee or move yourself.

Young Players And The Batting Tee:

As a rule, youngsters are not a big fan of the batting tee and quite often feel it's boring. To motivate them, give them a friendly reminder that many outstanding professional baseball hitters take as many as 500 swings a day off a batting tee. And that's probably one of the reasons they are now professional baseball hitters.

Always take your work off the batting tee very seriously and you must swing like you are swinging at a live pitch in a ball game! It is one of the best baseball coaching drills for a coach to use with his players. What can possibly be better than speeding up the process if you have "lost" your swing or to maintain your swing if you are in a good groove? Remember, practice doesn't make perfect but perfect practice makes perfect. If you're working off the batting tee, obviously you are willing to put in the time so don't cheat yourself and make sure you get the full benefit that you deserve. Treat it the same exact way as a live pitch in a live ball game. The benefits from working off the tee are tremendous!

During the course of my soccer career, I have read dozens of books on coaching soccer. While I have found some to be truly helpful, the vast majority of them have not been useful in the least.

I don't want to turn this article into a book review, but I do want to give you some pointers to look for as you are sifting through the enormous numbers of titles that are available for purchase.

One of the most common types of books that coaches look for is a drill book. While there is not anything wrong with this in general, it is critical that you understand that having a big book of drills does not make you a good soccer coach.

Less is more when it comes to coaching. It is better that you have a few quality activities than 101 different drills that you regurgitate all over the practice field.

That said drill books are a wonderful place to find inspiration and new ideas. Here are a couple of key questions to ask when purchasing a drill book:

Question #1 - Does the book break down drills by recommended age?

One major pitfall that coaches (especially new ones) encounter is choosing soccer drills that are not age appropriate. It can be very frustrating for your players to be constantly put into drills that are too complex for them to understand, or too difficult for them to execute. Conversely, activities that don't challenge your players are just as boring.

Understanding the characteristics of your players will help you a great deal with drill selection. Younger players should all have a ball at their feet the majority of the time. Moving quickly from activity to activity with short breaks in between is highly recommended. With older players, sharing a ball is appropriate. They can focus for longer periods of time, so you may use fewer activities in your sessions.

Question #2 - Does the book utilize session building principles?

You should be structuring your soccer practices to move from fundamentals to more soccer related games and activities. With young players you should be working on technical skills each practice. The game-related activities that you use in later phases of the practice should complement these skills.

For example, begin practice with passing/receiving drills, and then move into 3v1 in a grid, or a possession game. Look for soccer coaching books that implement full sessions, and not just a library of drills.

Question #3 - Does the book provide coaching points for each soccer drill?

Every drill that you run in your soccer practice should have a very specific theme and goal. A good soccer coaching book should detail the goals of each drill and provide you with coaching points for your sessions.

Be sure to stick with coaching points that address the theme of your practice. If you are working on creating angles of support with your team, now is not the time to stop your session and discuss improper dribbling technique.

You can always pull a player to the side if there is a major issue, but as far as addressing the team is concerned, stay on theme!

The following essential soccer coaching tips will help you involve your team's parents effectively and deal diplomatically with any problems that they present.

Parents are, obviously, necessary. Sometimes they can even be useful! You can, for example, get them to transport children, fetch balls during soccer drills and provide financial support.

There will, however, be occasions when you have difficulty with one or more parents. Some may want their child to play more, while others may question your judgement as a soccer coach. You can minimise the number of times you have to deal with an angry or upset parent by following these basic soccer coaching guidelines:

Have a pre-season meeting before the first drill session to discuss your plans and expectations for the season. Encourage questions from the parents and let them know that you have given a lot of thought as to how you’re going to coach their children.

Express appreciation for their interest and concern. This will make them more open and at ease with you.

Always listen to their ideas and feelings. Remember, they are interested and concerned because it is their children that are involved. Encourage parental involvement.

Know what your objectives are and do what you believe to be of value to the team, not to the parents. No soccer coach can please everyone!

Know the club and game rules. Be prepared to abide by them and to explain them to parents.

Handle any confrontation one-on-one and not in a crowd situation. Try not to be defensive. Let the parent talk while you listen. Often a parent will vent their frustrations just by talking. Listen to their viewpoint, then thank them for it.

Resist unfair pressure. It is your responsibility as the soccer coach to make the final decision. This doesn’t mean you can’t still listen to parents.

Don’t discuss individual players with other parents. The grapevine will hang you every time. Show the same respect for each player on the team that you want the parents to show towards you.

Ask parents not to criticize their children in front of anyone else. Don’t let your players be humiliated, even by their own parents.

Don’t blame the players for their parents’ actions.

Be consistent! If you change a rule or philosophy during the season, you may be in for trouble. At the very least, inform players and parents of any change as soon as possible.

Most importantly, be fair! If you treat all your players fairly and equally you will gain their respect and that of their parents as well. Key soccer coaching tip: Remember that your children (and their parents) are not all the same. They will have a wide variety of backgrounds, beliefs and ideals. This diversity is to be valued.

The challenge for you as a soccer coach is to address these differences in a positive manner so that the season will be enjoyable for everyone involved.
