Step 2

Turn slingshot sideways

Caddie grips handle of slingshot with left or right hand and then rotates wrist so that the palm of the hand is facing to the ground and the knuckles should be pointing to the sky.

Step 3

Gripping it before ripping it

Caddie will then place a golf ball within the pocket of the slingshot and pinch the leather pocket surrounding the ball with thumb (on top of ball) and pointer and/or middle finger (on bottom of ball). When squeezing the ball should only come in contact with leather pouch not skin of finger.
