  1. If your primary goal is to shoot a low score than your points 1,3,4 all all equally important. Of course, if you bomb the ball then points 3 and 4 should become exponentially easier for a child since they would likely be hitting shorter clubs into holes and miss less greens and hopefully put the ball closer to the hole. For kids, they always want what they can't/don't have. You have Player A who bombs it out there but can't hit a wedge to save their life and no short game. On the flipside, Player B is average in distance but with a deadly wedge players and can putt very well. On the kids tour guess which kids win more often than not?
  2. Thats interesting stuff @cwilk. Puts things into perspective. Does your source also show how many tournaments he played in the above years?
  3. All I read is a lot of 'Others this and other parents that.' Keep focusing on your daughter alone and she will improve and finish more in line where you think she should be. According to your other comments this already seems to be working so keep it going.
  4. From my experience, golf isn't normal. Its a very tough game and things happen during the span of 18-36-54-72 holes. Like TW said, all you can do is control yourself. You have no control over other players so if they normally shoot 90's and catch fire with a -5 why lose sleep over it? They shot what they did and it has no bearing on your or your daughter except her place in finishing. If you look at the scoring history of a certain player, normally you can kind of gauge what they might shoot during a tournament. There are also those other kids who haven't peaked and are fully capable of shooting a low number, but just haven't yet.
  5. Why do you always think a kid got lucky if he/she shoots a low score? Sounds like sour grapes to me. To answer your question and I'm speaking about my son only. His scores in USkids tournaments can range anywhere from -5 to 5 over. That is a huge differential, but it happens. It kind of depends on who shows up that day and how many putts fall. Over 5 tournaments so far, his average is 71. If we are talking about longer courses in the 5,700 yard range his scores range from -2 to maybe 6-7 over.
  6. No Trades please. Purchased these new from TM when released. Wear from normal play, but tons of life still left in the grooves. 52, 9* Bounce 56, 8* Bounce 60, 10* Bounce All shafted with Nippon Modus 120-S shafts. All Standard L/L/L $350 shipped CONUS OBO. Due to shipping I need to sell all 3 wedges together.
  7. If she swings lefty in softball, I would have her play golf righty as to not disturb her softball swing. Also, as others have said, righty golf equipment is much more available.
  8. I'd have to agree with this. Wedge play from about 80 yards and in has become very inconsistent for my son. Distance is all over the place and I think his current set up is just too heavy for him. Currently playing TM mg2's with recoil shafts. He's had to learn to just hit knockdown or choked pw instead of long wedges. We played with another kid over the weekend and he was sticking every wedge shot. Guess what he was using? 3 year old uskids stuff that were all beat up. lol
  9. Our rep said that the recoil esx 460 shafts have been discontinued. Any ideas what will replace them? My son uses these shafts in his irons and wedges.
  10. Man I wish my life was so simple that I had worries like that.
  11. It depends on the price. I had a set and they just felt different (bit harsher) than the normal cb57 set I also have. Note also the black finish will wear very quickly if you are worried about that sort of thing.
  12. We have been to a few golf camps at top D1 colleges and the coaches were asked about this topic and both said it is very...very...very...very rare. Basically almost never happens.
  13. Thanks, I hear that a lot and its a tough wait. Luckily, my son's putting and short game is much better than average so that has gotten him through on longer courses. Yesterday we played a local USkids tournament and my son was the longest in the group for once. Started off bogey-bogey on very easy holes and somehow he fought back to make 7 birdies, but still finished 2nd. That to me as huge. I'm hoping he can keep learning from every tournament to keep building his mental toughness when things aren't going his way. Yup, we are with AP now.

    Miura Irons

    I've been playing the cb57's forever now. Tried a lot of different irons and can't let them go. I have been looking for a brand new back up set, but they are discontinued :(. Profile, feel, everything is just about perfect. I'm a 3.8 index and don't find them hard to hit at all.
