    Why is this surprising?
    Kid has a IG account...people post on kid's IG account.

    Unless the kid is in Jr High or High School...why does the kid have a IG account to begin with? Same logic with FB. What good comes out of showing and telling the world that you just ate a Chicken Sandwich for lunch?
    I'm not on either platform...so... I'm assuming there may be a good reason for a Jr. 12U to be on these platforms...I just haven't seen the logic.

    Cold hard facts there. I see the reasoning for an adult to have social media and sharing kids golfing adventures (family, friends, etc) but this whole movement of children, literally children not teens, having an "independent" account is just really odd to me.

    This deserves its own forum entry - Should your junior golfer have a social media presence on Instagram / FB / Twitter?

    Yes, how else will I show off his new clubs and hopefully get equipment deals??

    If you are good. You don't need social media to get equipment deals.

    To me, the best, most powerful trail leg move...B.K.

    He starts getting on his toes at the top of his backswing.

    Towards impact:

    Rory at impact on 15 today. Notice right foot is banking instead of popping up.

    There's definitely something more important that I should be doing.

    Yah I think we all agree that is ideal, but almost impossible for younger kids to get that type of footwork.

    Not impossible. Feet are a by product of what’s happening above them. Using hips and knees correctly takes care of footwork

    @iteachgolf For reference and if you can share, how old is that junior?

    Great sequencing!
    Then, again, there is this guy who gets up on his back toe.😆. Not too bad with the sticks!

    Iteach- I think I know that kid. Used to live in NJ. Did he start losing distance doing that? A lot of kids will stop using vertical force when they attempt to work on that...

    No, He hits driver 220ish and is long for his size. He is from NJ and moved here last year

    Fwiw, my son played in pga jr league sectionals today against the SD team which won it all last year. All their kids were well onto their trail toe before making contact. Ages ranged from 11-13.

    Tedd Scott posted on IG over the weekend about the trail foot. Pretty interesting.

    Swipe ⬅️👈🏼 Your current Top 4 Fedexcup contenders a little ways into the downswing. Swipe to compare
    1. Lots of knee flex
    2. High right hip and low left hip
    3. Neck tilt (due to spine movement imo)
    4. Right heel off the ground
    5. Hands not “in front” of the chest but actually trailing the chest
    6. Club faces getting aligned through proper wrist action(wrist action protocol is based on grip at address and shot desired)
    7. All hit it far

    Let the kids and Pros own their swings. If they can deliver the club to the dimpled ball and said dimple ball goes in the direction and distance they wants. All the other stuff is irrelevant.

    I agree that each kid should own their swing but distance off the tee is king. The last bullet point he makes is the most important one IMO.

    There's definitely something more important that I should be doing.
