Junior Golf Camp

Every summer, many children attend a junior golf camp or clinic. A golf camp or clinic comes in many forms and of course it will be best to contact the facility to double check what they will need to make their experience a great one. Many campers are going for the first time and they, as well as their parents, are not sure what they will need while they attend. Below is a short list that should get you on the correct path:

Golf Clubs 
As crazy as this might sound it happens. It is kind of like the warnings on products. You think why do they put that on there? Well, the answer simply is that somebody, somewhere actually tried it! If your junior does not have clubs, check with the facility as they may provide them for the instruction. If not, you can purchase single clubs and not spend a lot of money especially if your child is just trying the game for the first time. We suggest purchasing (in this order) a putter, a pitching wedge, a seven iron and a three wood. This will get your new golfer started.

Comfortable Socks 
Many students, especially first time students, overlook this aspect. If the camp is scheduled for just a few hours in the morning, one pair should be fine. However if there is a before lunch and an after lunch session, putting on a fresh pair of socks can make the world of difference. So much that if your junior is in my camp, their instructor will be changing socks!

Rain Gear 
This is something else that should go without saying but the weather is unpredictable and you just never know what it is going to do. Obviously, an umbrella would be a good choice as well as a rain jacket and a pair of rain pants. If you have an active child, they probably already have these articles from other activities that they enjoy. As long as weather warnings are not out, expect the clinic to keep on going.

As a parent, I would suggest buying a new bottle of sunscreen. Everyone has different needs for which SPF they need to use to protect themselves. Skin cancer is nothing to fight with and it seems like we are learning more and more about how harmful the sun’s rays are for our skin every single day.

A hat goes along with protecting your child from the elements whether it is sun or rain (sometimes called liquid sunshine in the golf world). It does not matter whether it is a golf hat that looks like a baseball hat or a visor. Either will provide protection for their skin as well as their eyes.

Since this may be the first time that your child spends the night away from home, you will want to make sure that you pack all appropriate medications for them. In addition, you will want to print out a list of the medications as well as dosages and times to aid the staff and guarantee that your camper has a great experience.

Are You Taking Putting Lessons?

For some reason students seem reluctant to take putting lessons. I do not quite understand this as improving your putting is the fastest way to lower your scores.

I think that students do not want to take putting lessons for a couple of reasons…
Doing work on the range trying to hit the ball far and straight feels and sounds sexier and more fun than improving your putting with a putting drill. Many players like to compare themselves by how far they can hit not only the driver but also their irons. I always preferred to have the lowest score at the end of the round and collect my winnings. I figured that was impressive enough!People in general do not like to do things that they are not good at. I am guilty of this myself with my putting. Why go and get frustrated on the practice putting green when I can go to the driving range to hit good shots that I know that I can hit? Many times ego gets in the way.Another reason is one that actually does not fall on the student but the instructor.…

Putting Drills - Are They All Good?

Many golfers want putting drills to help them improve their stroke and get the ball in the hole faster. Many golfers will hear that a friend used a golf putting drill that helped them and make the mistake that the same drill will help them too. Here are a few reasons why it does not work that way and what you should be looking for to find the best putting drills to improve your game.

Learning Styles
There are three major learning styles auditory, feel and visual. Auditory would be that the way that you best consume information is hearing it. For example, an instructor can simply tell you to do something different, you hear it and you can do it. Learning through feel you have to be able to feel the new movement before you can begin to learn it. Most golfers are visual and like to be shown something and then try to repeat it. One is not better than another, it is simply that we are build or wired differently. The putting lesson your friend may have received was for a visual learner. How…

It does not a rocket scientist to figure out the future of golf lies within growing junior golf. Depending on the age of your child and goals of your child, junior golf lessons can take many forms. Here is a short list of the options that are out there for your child to learn and enjoy the game of golf.

Private Junior Golf Lesson 
This is the traditional way to learn the game. A professional takes your child and teaches them one on one the fundamentals of the game. Although the child, if interested, can learn very quickly in the format, it is the most expensive way to learn how to play the game.

Junior Golf Camp 
Many kids are introduced to the game through a summer junior camp. Depending on the size of the camp, the kids are broken up in to groups typically by age although some camps divide students via skill level. It seems that students have to choose which sport they are going to play at a younger and younger age. With this being said, many camps are full of younger children so you wi…
