Remember how your Dad would take you for a little back yard toss with the ball? Everyone learned how to throw a ball this way. You did not go to a throwing range. Throwing accurately was learned because you learned to throw to a target.....the person catching the ball.
This same back and forth learning can be applied for the first time to the game of golf. Take two StrikePads, get about forty yards apart and you can hit toward one another. BirdieBalls lose their hovering flight at about forty yards and fall harmlessley to the ground. We don't recommend you try to catch them while they are still spinning (unless you have a baseball glove on), but you will be hitting toward a target and hitting even just one BirdieBall back and forth!
