Video Golf Tip | Junior Golf Fitness
By Ed Ibarguen

Here at Duke University we have a lot of junior golfers, we love to have them out at the golf course, we get excited to see them out enjoying the game the way we love the game. The one thing that makes me very sad is when I see them get in a golf cart. Here are these kids, they are out to play golf, and all of a sudden they jumping in a cart thinking that is the way the game should be played. My recommendation to you as a parent of a junior golfer is have one rule. You walk, you walk, you walk. There's no riding in a golf cart for junior golfers. We like to develop cardiovascular, any exercise that develops cardiovascular fitness is strongly encouraged. We love it when our golfers are playing soccer and running around because we do not want them to be tired when they walk up the 18th hole. By all means, if you are playing with your junior, what a great time to come out to this environment and walk and play golf the way it was meant to be played. So please try to encourage your junior that if they are going to play golf they are going to walk the game, just the way it was meant to be played.

Cure for Inconsistent Aim When golfers suffer from inconsistently hitting the ball left, right or straight, the most likely cause is leaning too far over their feet, causing poor balance
