Teaching & Coaching Junior Golfers

Children learn best when the environment created for them is "fun, task specific & clear, and free of performance pressure." The following is a recipe for developing healthy junior golfers/athletes.  This recipe is taken from Mr. Chuck Hogan's book, Golf & The Intelligence of Play:


"This is a rare dish, only for the most discriminating of palates.  Many of your guests will like its presentation, while few will appreciate your efforts.


Unlimited amounts of unconditional acceptance

A limited number of rules without ambiguity

Every spice of play you can find

Lots and lots of various models

Appropriate equipment

Unlimited opportunity

A pinch of technical advice."
