  2. > @leezer99 said: > Not to diverge too far from OP's topic but why is it that once your kid goes from junior shoes to adult shoes do the prices jump like $60 a pair? You'd think going from a US size 7 to US size 8 is like the difference of a paper airplane and the Space X Falcon 4. shoe size humble brag?

A lot smaller then average kids get into golf because it is not a physical sport like football. When there little kids distance is not really a big deal. Just learn to pitch and lag putt and you will win a good number of tournaments. The smaller kids al
  9. > @leezer99 said: > I've never understood people on golf forums that try and discredit distances claimed. It's a 100% losing battle. Why not just get out there and do something about it? Because it's implausible. 280 as a best shot in a given round is even unlikely - averaging 280 over the course of 18 holes is almost certainly BS. I have found that parents tend to overestimate *average* driving distance of their kids by at least 20 yards.

  11. > @BeerPerHole said: > So, I was at the range last night working on the full swing with my son and a buddy. I needed to work with the driver a little and got it straightened out and was hitting nice long, high drives. Then I heard somebody just smashing drives a couple stalls behind me. Turned around and there's this little young lady with an amazing swing. She's 14, like my son, and about his size - 5'5" 115ish. Murdering the range balls with her driver - well past me. Her dad said in her last round she averaged 280 off the tee and only missed 1 fairway. She hit this massive baby draw

This is not the content I came here for. > It absolutely is relevant to junior/college golf The article (did you even read it?) talks about coaches of minor, non headcount sports (which would include golf) at a top academic school who specifically seek out under-represented minority recruits for whom they will give sponsorship in the admissions process (since there are no D3 scholarships). This school gives generous financial aid so families who can’t afford the
