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: How grip affects pressure and vice versa

Published

This video is a big one! It addresses a huge common flaw that so many golfers have at address where they are not ready to be dynamic with their target but rather are perfectly positioned TO BE STILL WITH THE BALL. This opens up a can of worms for bad contact for thin and topped shots with lack of proper divots, early extension, bad compression, and bad trajectory that can’t perform in the wind. Massively important video coming up!
