New-ish Clubs for my Kid (Advice Needed)
I'll preface this: He's high-functioning autistic.
I'm torn ya'll. My kid loves to play, but he's struggling mightily with ball placement. No matter what we do he keeps placing every iron in the same place with predicable results. I even went so far as drawing the placement points on his shoe with a Sharpie and it's just not coming. Attention is an issue, but I tell him all you need is about 30 seconds of focus and remembering what club you're hitting. Nada. I've asked my pro if we should give one length a try and he said absolutely not. Another pro said the same. I get why they're saying that in a way, but all I see is that he can hit a 7-iron, but not much else. He's either chunking or topping, and after a lesson, he's good for about a couple days, then it's back to whatever he does.
I'm just looking for some opinions. Part of me is just saying, "f" it and get the Cobra's but when he gets that clarity he pounds the crap out of his Callaway XRs. Like I said, I'm torn. I want him to have fun with the game, not play for a scholarship or anything like that. Thx!
