Dealing with growth spurts
My 8YO has had a growth spurt of about an 1.75" since late July. He was 52.5" in late July and now 54.25". Both measurements taken with golf shoes on. I'm pretty sure some of this spurt has happened very recently because I have some driver swing videos from about 3 weeks ago that look fine for an 8YO.
This recent growth has wreaked some havoc on his swing...particularly driver swing as he is far below the swing plane, swing speed all over the place (like waaaay all over the place) and he just does not look in proper form. What have you guys done as you go through these growth spurts to get a swing back in order? Head for some lessons? Start back at the green and work from green-to-tee while taking the swing through the putting, chipping, 7:30 backswing, 9:00 backswing, 10:30 backswing, and then full turn? Just keep swinging? Do non-golf related coordination activities?
