Practise striking the ball on a drive and running hoops. This session will be devoted to driving to the hoop 'magic circle' (sometimes called the 'v'), and running the hoop. The two shots to be used are the simple drive and the top-spin drive. We will critique techniques, and begin the process of improving individual difficulties. On a small lawn a player should aim to be through an intended hoop in four or less strikes.
The hoops will be set normally on the small lawn and players will hit a single ball to, and through, chosen hoops depending on how many turn up for the coaching session. Other than using a single ball, we will adhere to the laws of golf croquet.
