  1. READY-TO-PLAY FLYNN GOLF VT MAX | Junior Golf Clubs Shafts Grips (flynn-golf.com) You can get the adaptors installed ready to play by flynn and pretty reasonable. I don't have experience with the newer Flynn Driver Shafts but UST Mamiya makes these shafts so I am guessing they can't be all that different than Recoils but just my opinion. My daughter uses Flynn VT Alto iron shafts and they are not all that soft, they play pretty stable but that is just my opinion.
  2. I think I am going to pull the trigger on a new Accra FX 2.0 M2 (senior) and the newer generation from what she has and is stiffer than the M1 (Ladies) she is currently playing. Its under 50g. Looks like around $80 on Ebay. I'm trying to change as little as possible and she doesn't like to change her clubs. (Quite the total opposite of me). Fingers crossed this is seamless but I doubt it. Also need to work on hitting up a bit again.
  3. I am definately on ebay looking for some experiments. There is a later version Accra senior flex I am looking at and also an oldie but a goodie White Tie X5 in Senior Flex (she hit this well in the stock cobra hybrids and 5 wood she uses). Thanks for verifying spin is high. I am guessing the senior should bring spin down but don't want to alter things too much as she hit it well last year but growing. Great suggestions. Thank you.
  4. Happy Holidays. My daughter is going on 12yrs and using An Accra F140 Ladies Shaft in a Cobra F9 Thinking of moving up to the Senior Flex. She is swinging around 80MPH, 160ish Carry. Her spin rate is a bit high IMO in the mid to high 3,000's What is everyone else using these days?
  5. "His swing is beautiful, has he been working a lot with a pro?" "No," she replied. "His grandfather is a pro in South Korea, and he got a lesson from him awhile back." ha,ha, heard that type of line before...
  6. My daughter is 11 and carries her driver 150 yards. Which I am guessing is average.
  7. Did your child like them? They look Great. I just purchased Flynn irons for my daughter and so far so good. The quality is excellent and the look fantastic.
  8. Thinking about it for my 11 year old daughter.
  9. The New Pink Flynn irons look amazing. Anyone have experience with the old Velocity heads? My daughter is a lefty so don't have the new irons in Lefty that I see. The new shaft seems quality and an upgrade.
  10. Had a great driver fitting / track man session. Our fitter at Modern Golf was fantastic, he knew the Track Man numbers well and sure enough focussed on increasing angle of attack to maximize number and increased loft and moved to draw setting to max numbers. No need for new driver but we upgraded anyway and grabbed a demo F9 with Ladies Shaft. She is hitting it great, much more consistent with this setting and an inch longer and I can sleep well at night knowing it's been fitted. No more tinkering for a couple of weeks anyway!
  11. In The North, I have never seen 42 yards rolli n my life. Here is a pretty good swing. Close. Trying to get this consistently and tweek from here.
  12. Even better, great tests, looking forward to putting her through the paces!
  13. Thanks, I think, but that is a huge age comparison. Not playimg many 12 or 13 year olds.
  14. I guess this is a cheap way to see how my kids numbers compared to others. Hope you don't mind. It's cold in Canada so just putting in time indoors on the simulator. Working hard to sink up the driver. Swing is doing good but the driver needs to catch up with the rest of her clubs as far as consistency of contact so it's tinkering season -currently driver length and shafts! My daughter is 10 and soon to be 11 years in Feb. Best Driver Swing Speed 71 MPH, Best Ball Speed 104 MPH.
  15. Akshay is kind of the first of this young generation that is coming up that is basically been raised to play golf by his parents. Basically a junior living the life of a professional growing up home schooled and essentially golfing full time from a young age. Maybe I was naive until the US Kids Worlds and I notice there a many of these young kids are living the life of a professional golfers from a very young age. Home schooled or sports school and basically golf full time and year round. Their parents give them every opportunity to golf as much as they can at a very young age from 9 years
  16. I have have witnessed on 2 occasions in 9 and 10 year old girl's dad acting as human aiming targets. Walking up the fairway and say to aim at me or standing on the green for chip shots as the aiming point then moving when their daughter hits. I find the Human Aiming Point completely annoying.

  18. From the age 5-8 years - Girl. We did lessons hap- hazardly on an approximately monthly bases. 1 hour lessons. Several lessons per year but with no structure due to lack of facilities in the winter and tournaments and soccer in the summer. Lessons were kind of on a need be basis. This winter she is 9 years old going to be ten in a couple of weeks. It's time believe it or not to get more serious. She has grown stronger and more co-ordinated and realizes the focus she needs to play well moving forward. I think she is more mature mentally and physically to start to benefit more from lesson
  19. Every single dad that has a daughter playing golf under the age of 10 thinks their daughter is going to play on the LPGA. Their was a couple of times I had to give my head a shake and just have patience and let her have fun and try hard not to be that guy.
  20. I don't know what age it kicks in but I think at the 7-9 it is the ones that practice the most that are the best at it...I know that sounds like a revelation but I think the ones that are obsessed with the game at a young age are the best at it. At some point the rest have to realize themselves that it takes a lot of work to improve and the kid has to be willing to put in the time and effort. Not saying that is right or wrong but seems to be what I see or you have to have patience until it does kick in for your kid depending on when that may be and I don't think anybody knows.
  21. My daughter is 9 and will be 10 years at end of Feb. Indoor lessons today on Foresight Simulator: Pretty good hit for her was as follows... Ball Speed:93.9 mph club Speed:64.8 mph Carry: 117 yards Total Distance: 150 yards. At DC&P qualifier last year, her best measured 165 yards total. There is one really long hitter in her flight and I would say she is in the next level of girls for her flight that are around approx. the same as her sometimes longer, sometimes shorter. When it comes to 10 year olds she will play against in the spring, there are a few that are much longer, probably ov
  22. Wow, lots of interesting comments. If you are a parent of a junior golfer you get it. There is some very good advice here. Patience is a virtue.
  23. ?? I "said" that since virtually all the advice was contrary to setting this young girl on a path to the LPGA by the time she was 12, and there was no response from yourself. I think the best advice was from the first response ("she's 9..."). Guide, not force. It was late, I went to bed. I wasn't avoided the responses. Thanks for clarifying though. I appreciate the effort and the fact she is only 9. I did tell her today how proud I was of her and that she is playing great and only going to continue to improve! This discussion did help.
