My seven year old has his first tournament this Sunday, and every sunday after that for eight weeks. He can't get enough golf, and I want to give him every opportunity to be the very best he can be. Gear wise, what training aids would you recommend for a beginner that young? There are hundreds of training aids out on ebay but I have no idea which are good and which are junk. We have a net set up in the house with a chipping/driving mat so he can practice his swing any...
I can't offer you anything constructive right now, but I have my 7 year old signed up to play in an eight week tour of Tulsa, Oklahoma later this month through US Kids Golf. The "Daddy Caddie" aspect appealed to me too.

I am so glad I came and read this. I just signed my seven year old up for his first 9 hole tournament and we were planning to get him an embroidered bag with his nickname on it. Now I'm wondering if it's a bad idea.
Don't really have any fairway woods. I have a $20 driver from Wal-Mart and I go straight to my 4 iron after that. I don't have any problems with older models. This is encouraging! I'm excited again. Thanks guys!
My wife had me all excited by saying she was going to get me a matching driver, 3 and 5 wood set for my birthday. I started looking around and getting ideas, then she told me my budget would be about $200. I had planned to spend $200 on the driver alone. Do I stand a prayer of getting any sort of good, matched set for $200.  
I just bought my precious, four year old little girl a pink JR clubs set that she instantly fell in love with. The only problem is, I bought a set that was meant for ages 8-12. Is there any chance I can cut a couple of inches off each of the three shafts and make it fit her better?  TIA.. DC.  
I used to buy a dozen before each round and I would come home with 3-5 left over that I would throw into a bag in my garage. The kids have raided my stash bag leaving most of them out in the sun/rain so the dozen or so balls in my bag are all I really have.
 The courses I play all send a cart around at the end of the day to make sure no one is left on the course before they close. Assuming I haven't already realized that it am missing it and gone back for it myself, the course employee will snag it and give my cell a call. That's the hope anyway.
I think there are a lot of liars here.
