One of the greatest things about golf is that you can play the game your whole life. Being able to start the game at a young age is also a big advantage.
How many times have you heard adults say, "I wish I would have started at his age." Learning the game of golf at a young age is obviously a good thing and playing good golf at a young age is even better. The question for many parents is whether their child is just a good player, or does that child have a chance to be a great player. Recognizing a junior golfer's potential isn't easy, especially if the parents aren't golfers themselves.
