Getting Started with The Speed Trap
Step 1: Align the white center line to the target
Step 2: Make swings with no ball. Learn to miss the Speed Trap and brush the grass.
Using the Speed Trap Base for Chipping and Pitching
Step 1: Place the ball in front of the red line. Hit a standard “chip and run” shot until you are consistently missing the base and hitting the ball then grass.
Step 2: As you improve, move the ball back to the white line.
Using the Speed Trap Base for Full Swing
Step 1: Set a ball in front of the red line. Hit full shots with middle irons. To begin, tee up the ball just above the ground.
Step 2: As you improve, move the ball closer to the white line. The steeper the swing path, the closer the ball gets to the base.
Using the Speed Rods with the Base for Full Swing and short shots
Set 2 rods on the front of the base: If they are too narrow, turn them toward the target or away from the ball until you can safely hit the ball.
Set 2 rods on the back of the base: Start with the rods as wide as possible. Move them slightly together as you improve.
Set 4 rods on the corners of the base: Start with the rods as wide as possible. Move them slightly together as you improve. Begin without a ball, then put it in play
To take away the “over the top” move: Put a rod on the back top corner, and front inside corner.
To prevent coming too much from inside the line: Put a rod on the back bottom corner, and front outside corner.
