Autism and Golf Adventure. My Son's Taking a Break
I know there's a young lady here with autism who competes. She's very inspirational and probably has the coolest WITB photos I've ever seen. I'm interested in hearing from any other parents who are dealing with this disorder. My son competed last night and shot a huge score. He has decided to take a break, was reading my mind. It's been tough to watch. This kid has a swing that has become well-known around here. Something to see. But, he can't do the processing required to make his way through a round on a tough course. Won't listen to me about obvious setup errors. A break may do him well. Also, I need to get a pro who can communicate with him on a few things. Kid can't hit a fairway to save his life anymore. It's a humbling game that tests all of us. I've seen normal grown men melt down while playing this game - something I can laugh at now. Am curious if any parents or grandparents here have operated in this realm. He's 14 now and autism mixed with puberty is a hot mess.
