Video Golf Tip | Equipment For Juniors
By Ed Ibarguen

Parents with junior golfers I would like to talk to you for a few minutes about some things to look out for when you are trying to get your child to play the game when they are young and they need special equipment to play. I know that you have two or three sets in the closet, maybe your wife has an extra set, you want to take them to your local club fitter or professional and ask them to cut them down. That is not always the best decision. If I took this club, this is a 6-iron with a stiff shaft, and I cut it down to fit my eight year old let's say or my six year old, what I would have done is make this stiff shaft into a double extra stiff shaft that is extremely light and even though it is the right length the club will not have any kind of feel for that club. Right now there are a lot of companies out there making child specific equipment and I encourage you to try to find even just one or two clubs to give to your child, and as they are going through their growing stages try to find a local dealer, maybe a local PGA professional, is taking trade ins on junior equipment so that you can trade up without going through a lot of costs. I understand how expensive equipment is and you feel like you do not want to be reinvesting in a whole new set as your child goes through their growing spurt, but do try to keep them current on what their equipment should be and don't be afraid to ask your local PGA professional for advice in this area.
