If @iacas or @mvmac have the time. I’ve made a few changes. (Working with Ledge helped a lot.) I can’t tell much of a difference from 4 years ago, but maybe you guys can. The main difference I noticed was that I don’t step through anymore. I’m not sure if I’m standing taller or not, I really can’t tell. Let me know if you see any main differences.
As stated before there are YouTube lessons both recorded and live. I don’t know what Illinois stance of playing golf right now is. But I do know that a lot of courses in my area are Junior friendly. The one I’m playing now (Trumansburg Golf Course). Doesn’t even charge a greens fee for Juniors under 12 and only charges 12-17 year olds on the Weekends. (Young kids are free with a paying adult) My daughter Alina is 6 and she’s not so hung up on mechanics at all. She just likes going out to the course with her daddy. Let your daughter have fun. If she wants to take it more seriously when she gets a little older, then get her some lessons.
He’s definitely better than he was two or three months ago, but I just don’t keep his score much anymore. He just rushes his shots too much, turning what could be an easy bogey into a triple or worse, double digits not uncommon. I think if he concentrates, he could get to where he breaks 100 consistently, at worst, and then we’ll go from there.
Sam Snead used to play #7 at Pebble Beach kind of that way if the wind was blowing, which it usually is. He'd chip the ball onto the cart path and let it bounce down beside the green. Then he'd hope to chip close enough for a one putt par.
