Golf is one of the few elite sports on earth. While equipment matters a lot in every other sport, in golf, it can mean the difference between winning and losing by significant margins.
An excellent way to begin lessons is by teaching your kid how to putt. It is undoubtedly the most crucial factor of the game. You can start off by letting them make short strokes.
By putting the ball easily, they will gain confidence. Afterwards, you can make a radius of around 5 feet around a hole. Near that one, make a shorter radius, and then assign different points for different circles.
Ask the kid to putt within each circle for which he or she will get points. This will increase their control and accuracy in the putting game.
Use Right Equipment
You need to understand that golfing with the wrong equipment can destroy the entire game of a kid. This is why it is essential to not only get the right junior kit but also teach them the etiquettes of using it.
Significant junior golfers tend to adopt wrong ways of using the driver which causes problems with their game as they grow up.
This happens because the conventional equipment is sometimes heavy for kids to handle, so they find wrong techniques to balance and use the equipment, which ends up spoiling their game.
To overcome this, a number of junior products, such as Golf World’s little mate golf club range for kids, have been developed specifically for little hands..
Don’t Burden Them
The last thing you would want to do while teaching golf to kids is to make them feel as if it is something that just must be done. You need to keep it a leisure activity.
This will help them learn more quickly. Also, you can let them experiment at the start. This will allow them to find their strength in the game. Appreciate their efforts, and tell them how they can do better. A little praise can go a long way in teaching pro golf to kids.
Work on Jargons
A big mistake many parents and coaches tend to make while teaching golf to kids is that they use complicated jargons of the game expecting kids to know them magically.
You need to make the sport easy for them, not complex. Instead of telling them about that full arc, tell about that ‘big circle’. Or instead of asking them to how to master that descending blow, tell them how they should ‘thump the ground.’ The key is to make everything comprehensible to them.
Keep Coast Clear
While teaching a kid how to play golf, make sure the coast is clear. You want to let them play their hearts out and experiment with whatever they feel comfortable.
This means that their shots will often go in directions unintended. It’s best if you go to a place where there are not many people for them to worry about.
