That's been the opinion of my son's golf coach too.He's not happy that my son plays in tournaments because he says they (the kids) get into the "put the ball in the hole at all costs" mindset and they are not receptive to learning new things.It's a tough call. I think if you wait until they're 10, they're already so far behind that unless they're exceptional, they're going to struggle. On the other hand, kids who start out in a learning mindset probably end up better...
So 5 weeks into our tour, I can now offer this advice. I can't really speak for ijga, but I can compare US Kids Golf to The First Tee. US Kids Golf is mostly about golf. Kids learn the game, and they learn how to win and lose and how to deal with it. The top 5 receive medals and if their scoring is good enough, they get an invitation to play at the next level. At The First Tee, golf is secondary. The kids learn life lessons and how to be good citizens while learning the...
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.
