Should I get my child into golf? Or should I let them discover golf on their own? How early is too early? Or what should I do as a parent to support my child in golf?
These are just some of the topics that renown golf teacher Michelle Holmes shares with us in this episode. As golf grows in popularity throughout the world in places like the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Brazil, and Colombia among many others, one of the biggest areas of growth involves children and young people. As more and more children are brought into the sport it means that parents need to play an active role in supporting their children as their children embark on the journey of golf.
Some will join golf simply to play for fun, or to play with their friends who are learning the game too. Others will play because their parents want them too -- and others still play the game, dreaming of being like Brooke Henderson, Lydia Ko, or Lexi Thompson. Perhaps its Rory McIlroy, Collin Morikawa, or Jordan Speith that they admire. Regardless, many parents are asking themselves how to best encourage and support their child as they take up this difficult, challenging, and extremely rewarding sport.
