Video Golf Tip | Starting Juniors in Golf

I get a lot of phone calls from parents asking me the same thing, do I teach kids. Well of course I do. Then they ask me the next question which is how old do I teach the kids. I kind of have a stock answer that I give them, and I am not trying to be flip with them, but I just tell them that I don’t take ID cards, I don’t check ID cards. The point being that when I am working with a kid I need two things. I need an attention span and I need comprehension. If I can get that out of any kid, I can teach them. With that said, I have given private lessons to kids that are four, four-and-a-half years old. Why? Because they had that attention span and that comprehension, even if that lesson only lasted about 20 or 25 minutes. Also, I have kids out there that are nine and 10 years old that I would not want to touch with a 10-foot pole. Why? Because they just can’t give me an attention span or they just want to be out there fooling around. So if you want to know whether your son or daughter is ready to come play golf, number one, hopefully there is an interest there that is coming from them, not from the parents. But if you still want to find out whether you kids want to play golf, make sure they have an attention span and they can comprehend. If they can do that, then we can work with them.

Buried Bunker Shot: Concussion When faced with a buried lie in the bunker you must create a concussion in the sand in order to drive the ball up out of the bunker
Long Putt Distance Control Practice hitting long putts with just your trail hand in order to get a feel for the putter's flow and eliminate hip action in your stroke
Role Of Legs In The Swing Your legs play four different roles in your swing from address to finish as they provide balance throughout the swing, so the motion of the legs is critical to allowing you to progress through the swing correctly
