Golf Tuition for Kids

Like it or not, the fact of the matter is, fewer numbers of young people are being attracted to the game of golf than in previous years. It is an arresting decline in numbers and one that golf has to address if the game is to enjoy a burgeoning future.

Of course, there are countries where this trend is bucked.

Mastering the game within a game: A successful guide to putting from the Masters

How much time to do you devote to practising your putting? Be honest. It’s probably nowhere near the amount of time you’ll spend at the range thrashing your driver and irons.

Mind Over Putter to Better Your Golf Score

“They say every golfer is just two shots away from crazy. One bad shot you can deal with. Two in a row and you go nuts. I try to stop the cycle after one”.

These are the words of Joseph Parent, PhD, author of Zen Golf: Mastering the Mental Game. This golf book is one of the numerous publications which have emphasized on the importance of mind in the game of golf.

Golfers are generally hardy souls and there are a number in our ranks that will play whatever the weather, come rain, wind or shine all year round. These dedicated souls are the ones you see out on the course, brollies in hand in the middle of December, still cheerful and still enjoying the game.
