We’re back with part 2 of our look at the junior golfer and parent relationship. This week we’re talking about what we heard last week during the conversation between an elite junior golfer and parent.
In this episode we talk about the phases of participation every golfer goes through when they get into the game and how to best manage them. It’s critical to understand the different needs of a golfer to set up the best learning environment possible to avoid burn out and get the best results.
Do we often forget to disassociate learning with performance in junior golf?
Do we often view junior golfers abilities through the wrong lens?
I am writing to not only confess my sins as a golf coach but to share what I have learned moving forwards. If I can help prevent others from making the same mistakes as I did, we have a better chance of growing this incredible game.
