  1. It was a Junior All Star Event so that may explain some of it. It was a little disheartening when you talk to an official about a parent and they respond they know about him and are watching him. However, nothing was done.
  2. My son played his first AJGA event last week and was wondering if his experience was typical of AJGA events. The main concern was the amount of parent involvement. Parents disregarded signs for no parents on the range, parents coaching, a father yelling at his son while my son was getting ready to tee off, parent transporting his son in a golf cart, etc. Is this typical? I was under the impression this sort of activity was kept in check at an AJGA tournament.
  3. My son was accepted into the field for the Future Masters and more than likely ( he has enough stars) will be in the field for an AJGA event the same days as the Future Masters. If all things are equal in terms of travel/cost, which do you think would be a better event for a 14 year old? He will more than likely qualify for future AJGA events later in the summer so it isn't his only opportunity to play an AJGA event. Thanks for any insight.
  4. Sorry to hear about your daughter's stress fracture. My son had/has this as well. The pediatrician first thought he had scoliosis but when we followed up with an orthopedist it was diagnosed as spondylosis (stress fracture) and Spondylolisthesis (grade II slippage). He has never had any pain so we are not sure when the stress fracture and vertabra slippage may have happened. He is followed by a well-regarded pediatric orthopedist at a children's hospital who sees a lot of top level athletes (gymnasts mainly). Personally, I think it is important to see a doctor who understands young athletes. He took a break from sports when he was first diagnosed for about 6 weeks. He did P/T and was set up with a stretching program. It is really important for the hamstrings to be stretched everyday and for his core to be strengthened. He does exercises everyday. In addition he stretches 10-15 minutes before he swings a club. The orthopedist has stressed how important stretching is for my son and it will be something he will have to do for the rest of his life. My son has been able to play tournament golf for the past two years with no pain. Certain sports are definitely out of the question for him to play and we have a no trampoline rule. I wish your daughter a speedy a recovery. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me.
  5. I am really looking for some guidance! Didn't realize it would be a loaded question.
  6. My son is a rising 8th grader. How important is his ranking at this point? Trying to decide on a tournament schedule and wondering how much we should be considering the affects of certain tournaments on his current ranking. Thanks.
  7. Anybody catch it yesterday afternoon? What were your thoughts of the ESPN broadcast vs. Golf Channel? Anybody who had a son or daughter who participated, what did you think? My son was disappointed his hole out eagle with a 9 iron was not featured , lol. Also, a little less Warren and Michael Collins and more about the golfers would have improved the show.

  11. My son's team qualified this year. He got all his gear and is excited. Anyone else who has been there have any tips? Where to eat, what pool to go to etc. Edited to add: When are the divisions made?
  12. We just came back from the tournament. It was our first time participating so I don't have a previous year to compare it to. From talking to parents who had kids playing in previous years, the courses did play harder. The hotel and room were very nice. The food was not very good at all. The tournament was pretty well run. Although, they were slow in posting results and tee times. The practice area/range was limited. Only one day did the practice green have holes and there was no chipping and practice bunker (the areas were roped off.) The range closed early so some people were upset about that. Any other questions? Undecided if we will go back next year at this point.
  13. Yes, it is a tough class. My son has had a good season playing in some of our PGA sections' two day tournaments in the 12-18 division and scoring well. He has also won some two day tournaments.
