  1. This is the Honeymoon Phase... in two weeks you'll be searching WRX Classifiedes for a new putter like the rest of us.
  2. Doesn't matter. Just make sure they love the game and buy 'em a lemonade after.
  3. Who's talking about kids that shoot in the mid 80's? I'm talking about a kid that shoots in the 60's with a bad attitude. The attitude will be overlooked. Lot of people forgetting that a coach's job rides on the shoulders of 18-22 year olds. They just need kids that put up low rounds and have enough sense to get passing grades.
  4. If your job is to win then you’re a fool to pick a player shooting in the 70’s versus one that shoots in the 60’s.
  5. All coaches say attitude and behavior are important because that’s what they have to say. Shoot a bunch of tournament rounds in the 60’s and those things are overlooked.
  6. Makes sense. On another note, anyone familiar with a course that has no trees or OB left?
  7. Rules for a successful college experience: Sleep more than you study, study more than you party and party as much as you can!
  8. The biggest reason many private schools have trouble recruiting for equivalency sports is tuition. Why do you think there are very few golf powerhouse legacies at private schools? In state tuition at UCLA is about $14,000... go 5 miles down the road to USC and you're paying $58,000. I don't care if you get a 50% scholarship at USC, you're still paying twice the full tuition at UCLA without a scholarship.
  9. Why are you so worried about this? Perform and there won't be an issue.
  10. I know the prolific amount of wins your son has had and the competition he has faced. I'm sure he will have his growth spurt (all kids even out at some point) and be back in the winners circle. It will be up to him to keep grinding through it. Don't get caught up in trying to make him something he's not though... keep focusing on what he's really good at and make those skills razor sharp. Did I hear right that he's with AP now?
  11. This is pretty interesting topic. My son isn't 14 yet but has definitely matured faster than most. He competes against older kids and even though he has had a tough couple of years he isn't crestfallen due to lack of wins, etc. He sees the progress and is invested in the plan.
  12. Never used them but every other junior parent I've run across has had these at one point or another.
  13. He actually did a podcast with his old OSU coach Mike McGraw recently and if you listened closely you can tell he wants to retire but isn’t saying so. Says he’s very happy with his home, family and overall spot in life. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/better-than-i-found-it/id1526253158
  14. The coach gets paid for each level they move through. Not all of the fees you pay go to him or her but a large amount does. Is it worth it? Probably not compared to having a full lesson tee but they aren’t doing it for free.
  15. Care to explain? I know you had a good team but you seem pretty upset about all this. Were you missing players?
  16. Have them download the USGA Rules app to their phones. They're on there 80% of the time anyway.
  17. Bryson has graphite iron shafts. Tell that coach to keep his mouth shut. The only thing that matters are the scores your son puts up so if he's comfortable with graphite then so be it. Looks like you're in the UK so I'd recommend heading over to your local golf shop that has hitting bays and trying out a few different options to see what he likes best.
  18. Yep, heard from PG the other day. Don’t worry if anyone says you’ll have an * next to your name.
