Safety Rules for Junior Golfers
Stay Safe on the Golf Course
The first thing we are going to talk about is safety. The most important out here today is to make sure that no one gets hurt. This is a golf club. The club is made out of steel. If someone gets hurt with it a lot of damage can be done, so we want to make sure that does not happen.
- The first thing I am going to ask you to do is that whenever you pick up a golf club I am going to ask you to turn it over and put the head of the golf club in your hands and the butt on the ground. We call that our safety position. Unless I ask you to swing the club that is the position that I want to see the club in.
- We just mentioned swinging the club, when you swing a club we want to make sure that you do not let go of it. If you let go of the club it is going to fly some place and we do not know where it is going to go. We do not want to have anyone hit with this golf club.
So the safety rules we are going to establish right out front to make sure that we keep this a fun and positive experience for you. When I ask you to pick up the club put it in the safety position, when I ask you to swing it please do not let go of it. Let's keep it safe out here today.
