Golf Is Great Exercise For Kids
But there's nothing like good ol' fashioned outdoor exercise. Running, swimming, tennis but how about heading to the links with your child?
Pro golfer Rick Fletcher offers some tips to have fun golfing with your kids:
(1) good equipment (2) teach them basics of the grip (3) take them golfing as much as possible, including stops afterward at fast food spots as promised (4) find out from the local course the best times for kids to play (5) make sure kids know guidelines on the course (6) consider keeping score(we all have that competitive nature).
Frequently there are even golf tourneys offered for the younger guys and gals, and right now, you can get your kid, 9-17 yrs. old entered in a tournament set for next Tuesday, June 28 at Stonegate for the Lubbock Boys and Girls Club. They'll have trophies, lunch and cost is only $25. Go to this website for more information. Let's get the kids moving....it helps to make us move!
