I know I’m supposed to be getting ready for hunting season, but the weather has been so nice I can’t stay off the golf coarse. I have not been on this little par three with grandson Kyle since last year, when he was four. We have been to the driving range several times, but he’s been hesitant to actually play the course. The other day he said he wanted to go, as he got a new set of clubs a few months ago, and he was itching to try them out.
As you can see from the picture, this kid is a natural! I really don’t see anything glaringly wrong with his swing. In fact if any of you seasoned golfers have any constructive criticism pass it along. I’m no pro, but this little 5 year old looks pretty smooth to me. He hit this drive over the hill a little left of the green. It went 100 yards and he bogeyed the hole. He shot a 53 for 9 holes using the women’ s tee’s.
If he had half a putting game (his weak point) he would be easily in the 40’s, which is pretty remarkable for a 5 year old. He played the whole game using his hybrid club, and left his driver in the bag. Last year he had a 57, which was his low score till Thursday. I hope to get one more round in with Kyle before kindergarten starts, as he’ll probably be beating me by 2nd. grade.
