How do I help my Junior Golfer?

I Want to Help
…but not too much!

If you are a parent of a junior golfer, your urge is to want to help. This is very natural.  You are a parent.  The beauty of golf is that the game will do a lot of the “help” for you.  You just need to provide the opportunity and a few helpful tips along the way.  By the way, if you are a junior golfer, your urge is to rely too much on mom and dad.  Wouldn’t it be nice to stop being told what to do every day and earn a little “freedom”?  Start taking on responsibilities yourself.  Show them that you can do this!Here are 4 things you can do:

1.  Print out the Packing List.  Get yourself organized!  College coaches want to see an organized, responsible, independent golfer.

2.  Plan your own practice.

3.  Thank the organizers and volunteers of the event.

4.  Start looking at colleges on your own.  Start a notebook of thoughts and questions.
