STARTING TO GOLF AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE
- When kids golf at an early age and continue well into there senior years, it almost seems like they are golfing forever.
- I started to golf when I was in my twenty’s because it never interested me when I was young. It is probably because my father never golfed, so I never developed an interest in it until later on.
But, when I started to golf, I golfed with a passion. So here is where the kids part comes it.
HOW IT ALL STARTED
After I got married my wife wanted to golf. But, to make a long story short she wanted all new stuff. I bought her a Pink Golf Bag, Purple Woods, New Irons and Miss Peggy Head Covers. So you can see I am dating myself.
She went golfing twice and hurt her neck and shoulders and guess what, these new clubs and bag sat in our garage! You can imagine I spent a little bit of money on her golf stuff.
When we had our first son, he started to take interest in golf when he was about ten years old. Guess what, he said, “Dad I want you to buy me a new golf bag and clubs.”
Hmm, I have just the bag and clubs for you son! At first he fussed about the Pink Bag, Purple Woods and Miss Piggy Head Covers. But then, something happened he enjoyed golfing so much that he forgot that they were his mothers clubs and he used them into his twenty’s.
So basically, kids golf because they learn to love the game. By the way our second son waited until he was able to buy a used set of golf clubs because he didn’t want to use a pink bag.
Our sons are in their forty’s now and are glad they started to golf at an early age. We travel a lot and have golfed in different parts of the world.
I would like to hear of your experience with any of your kids golfing.
