TST Call to Action - Create a Golfer in 2014! - Page 3

post #37 of 186

I am working on my nephew and brother in law. Buying my nephew (8yrs old) I set of clubs this week, and then flying down to see him in a few weeks and take him to the range. I figure if I can get him hooked, my brother and law will follow.

Does it count, if we "re-introduce" a former player who quit for one reason or another?

 

Either way, count me in.

I don't make the rules but I would think that should count.

Found my target and will try and take him to course on Saturday.. Question.. Do you guys think it is better to only take him to range and try and show him stuff or should I just take him to course and say this is what you need to do.. i.e. Get ball in hole in least amount if swings?

It's tough to say - it can depend on the person. Some people don't like the pressure of being on the course, but some people don't like that hitting balls on the range doesn't seem to have a point.

I pledge to create a golfer this year... I already have my target and I am taking him to play some indoor golf and get some chicken wings this next week... lets see what happens!

The nature of my work at the golf course leads to this every day. Just because I've done it recently doesn't mean I won't pledge to do it over and over. This is a great idea...

I occasionally took my little brother to the range. He seemed interested so far. It's been a month and he showed much swing improvement.

I'm planning to take him to the course as soon as he able to swing a driver consistently. Time will tell.

I hope our service helps create many this year, but I will personally create one myself for sure! Count me in.

Does it count if she hasn't played since the late 70s, but has gone to the range about a dozen times since then (including once in 2013, with me)? If so, I'll use this as an excuse to get her to the course ... I'm confident that once she plays nine holes at a par-3 near her house, she'll be hooked. And it'll help get my nearly-lapsed self back (only approx. 20 rounds since summer 2011... I used to be good for that many seasons).

Plan of action: take her to the L.A. Open (done before reading this), the range more regularly, and buy her at least a set of irons before the weather gets better. And to play at least a par-3 course before the end of summer.

If not... I'll figure someone else out. I actually took a date last summer to the driving range, and she enjoyed, but then called to tell me how sore she was the next day. And I thought it was a girl who was in shape. Sadly not a girl I'm still in touch with.

Been trying for years to get my brother into the game. Hopefully this is the year it happens. He is already registered to play in a May outing with me so hopefully it sticks.

I got my Dad to start playing last year, he was 68, and now he is addicted to golf. Practices every day the weather is good, mostly chipping and wedges and tries to play once a week.

Well the opportunity suits me well this year. I have three players to introduce to golf. My co worker, spouse and my step son. I tried last year to get my co-worker to go hit a par three course just around the block from his house..gave him a set of clubs, bag and balls to hit with, sent him an online beginner tutorial, he seemed anxious to get out..but the clubs were returned in October without seeing any action. The spouse is year to year, maybe this is the year. Step son probably my best bet as we do bowl and shoot pool together since his arrival last month. wish me luck..

I've got a candidate in the ex-boyfriend of a buddy's sister. My friend took a bit more of shine to the fella than his sister did apparently. Anyway, we did get him out once last year and he didn't break down in tears even once.

 

Said friend just upgraded his clubs and the plan was (or maybe still is) to sell them to the guy at a bargain. I'll do my part and get him out a few times.

I was able to get my dad to get back into the game two years ago, I'm sure I can find another person willing to discover the best game ever created. Sign me up!
