He delivered a step by step technique in demonstrating the correct position of the body and hands in holding, swinging golf stick and woodball, so the ball can reach the target correctly. "The most important thing about golf is how to regulate how we stand", he said. Some people have a very straight position on their backs, but what is really needed is a slightly bent position when swinging a golf ball. In addition, in golf and woodball there are differences even though they look the same. The difference is the position of the hand grip when swinging between golf and woodball. In golf, to reach the main target of flying balls and there are no obstacles. Whereas the target woodball is rolling ball and there are many obstacles because the terrain is not the same shape.
