In this video, Tyler Wong, PGA Director of Player Development at NW Golf Academy at Sah-Hah-Lee Golf Course in Clackamas, Oregon, shows you the first steps you should take to get your child started in golf.

The first part of getting your kids into golf is creating some early success. If you can set them up to hit a few shots solid, high and in the general direction you’d like them to go they’ll be hooked! The first step is to get the clubs that fit their height and strength. I use US Kids Golf Clubs at my facility. US Kids Golf uses smaller grips, lighter shafts, and more flat lie angles to fit most all young kids just starting the game.

The second part is creating some consistency. Don’t be technical. Most kids work well with direction. When I first meet a new junior golfer, I want them to stand the proper distance from the ball. Typically, I will fold up a towel, place it next to the ball, running parallel to the target line and ask the child to stand on the towel and stay there as they swing. That’s usually all it takes! Remember the goal is airborne and forwards!

    Good tips. When I take my kids to the range… I also take some masking tape with me to guide their foot placement for iron and driver.

      Worst article ever. Please don’t do this. Kids need simplicity no fitting. My gosh you are killing the game by needing selling this bs.

Clement: The best video for beginner golfers ever

Published

One of the deep expertise we have is knowing what side you need to be swinging from to enjoy your best golf. Sometimes it’s both sides like me! So many professionals on tour are including left-handed swings (for the right-handed player) in their warm-up routines and practice routines as a great way to create muscle confusion. Our fabulous kinesiologist, Munashe Masawi, confirms this through his studies and personal training for his grueling sport of football.

But there is always one side that fires better, feels smoother, and has the potential for a lot more than the other for many golfers. Which one are you?

Clement: Important video on grip! (dare we say “historic!”)

Published

We so much love being historically correct! Back when I started teaching 35 years ago, when I looked at what the top 5 coaches were teaching, I knew I had to forge my own way. Not only did it not make sense anatomically, it did not make any sense neurologically either! Fast forward to today and we talk about ground forces and how to let the hips turn in the backswing and grip? WHOA, DID THEY MISS THE BOAT THERE!!

This video really takes the cake and REMOVES ALL QUESTIONS AND DOUBT ABOUT GRIP; where to hold it, grip pressure and IN OUR OPINION, THE FIRST TIME IT HAS BEEN REVEALED IN IT’S FULL ANATOMICAL FUNCTIONALITY.

This will end all debates about the “weak grip vs strong grip” argument!
