Recommended Posts

Do they even make them for a 3 year old? He is a little dude that has to do everything I do. please help??? I don't want to buy him plastic fisher price junk, some real clubs. Or should I just cut about 2 feet off of some old irons and a putter?

I know my local golf shop has kids clubs that are colour coded for different ages (I'm not sure which colour goes with which age). Not sure if they have them in Canada or the U.S. but we usually get the short end of the stick when it comes to equipment availability so I'm sure you could find them. Cut down clubs would work fine, a three year old isn't going to be worried about swing weight and shaft flex, it's more about getting him swinging which a cut down club will do just fine for.

U.S. Kids Golf makes some good stuff.

+1 He beat me to it.

http://www.uskidsgolf.com/uskgProduc...nner&menuID;=29 I would advise against cutting down some of your old clubs, the clubheads are way too heavy and the shaft would be up near 4X-Super Stiff. With some clubs designed for him it will be much easier for him to pick up the game, which will make it more enjoyable as well. I can't wait until my nephew is old enough to go out with us. He got a fisher price "set" (one club) last christmas, but again he was only 20 months old at the time.

I got something along the lines of this:

for my 2-year old. They're well made and just the right size. The set I got is just the driver, a 9-iron, and a putter, but I also have a 7-iron by Lynx (I think) that I ordered from Golfsmith.com. If you just want a single club, it wasn't more than $20 I don't think.

My 5yo daughter has clubs. My advice is to work from the pin backwards.
Pick up a $10 kids putter at Wmart and see if he has the attention span to last more than 5 minutes on the putting green. Until my daughter was five, she would putt a few times and then be picking flowers, chasing butterflies, and log rolling down the green embankment. She also has a PW, 7 iron, 5W, and golf bag. Would not buy an entire set just yet. Get the putter first, then PW, then 7i, etc, etc.

Dunno if Callaway makes them small enough for a 3yo, but thier kids sets have the Trade in Trade up so when they get taller/older you can trade thier clubs in for the next level and just pay the difference.

Probably sure some other major brands do the same but Callaway's CS is tops.

I'll vote for the U.S Kids golf clubs too. I've got the driver, 7 iron, putter set-up for my 2.5 year old twins. We have a boy and a girl. She's not that into it as of now, but my son is hooked. The clubs work out great, and they're fairly cheap in my opinion. I take him to the range with me now, when I know it's not that busy. He'd stay all day. If I had time I'd take him every day, because he has so much darn fun. "Daddy I really got ahold of that one huh"!! I've taught him some other lingo too. One of my favorites that he repeats is, "Daddy, I caught it a little thin". Pretty funny from a 2 yr old. Check out those clubs. And you can get them right or left handed. They're a pretty solid choice.

My friends 5yo has callaways. Kids real cool. We let him play from the kids tees on the par 3's when the course is empty (we usually take him on monday, because there is absolutely no-one there), and he has a blast. His personal best is a 13 on a par 3, but its so cool to see when he hits a good drive and says 'ohhhh, I crushed that one!' lol

+1, my son has about the same attention span, putts for a couple of minutes, then it's snow-angels in the bunker.

    • I read about 7 pages of the comments on this interesting topics, but not all (yet), so forgive me if I am duplicating something already said. I voted that physical is most important to golf and I agree that it is most important by far. But,what good players view as physical, and I don't blame them for viewing this as such, can also largely be a mental issue for less skilled players. Things that are automatic for some, are not yet so for others and they need to think about those first, or they don't have a chance... I won't compare a player to another one, but instead one player (namely me) at different times, yet in similar conditions. * Can someone tell me why I shot 75 and 111 less than a week apart (the 111 was on a more difficult course but still... it was the highest score in probably 8-10 years for me)? I was the same guy with the same physical abilities, but I made really poor choices, compounded errors with more errors and in the process lost the swing completely: shanks, tops, thins, etc... The silver lining was putting which is and remained my strength, even on that day...  * Can someone tell me why the first time my name was called on a tee box in an official Norcal (NCGA) tournament, I was shaking so badly, I nearly whiffed my drive which ended in a terrible spot, causing me to re-tee? It's some form of pressure, one I was totally unfamiliar with and which no longer affects me that badly. However, even at the highest level in golf, think Ryder Cup, the first tee shot is the most nerve wracking shot, for most people. You might say pressure is physical (tension, shaking, sweating, etc...), but it is controlled by the mind and by experience, so one can train for it, to some extent: breathing exercises, putting drills that force you to hole out x shots in a row or you start from scratch, playing worst ball with oneself, for example... * Can someone tell me why in casual rounds and less so in competitive rounds, I sometimes forget my pre-shot routine and don't put myself behind the ball and then step in, but rather just step in and hit a great shot, 10 degrees offline to the left? Lack of focus and/or discipline, which is a mental error, leading to a physical one (being lined up wrong) * Can someone tell me why, all of sudden, I completely lost any ability I previously had to hit fairway woods (there is another thread in "Instruction and Playing Tips" about this? I think I finally got it back, and while the practical cause is physical, the real root of the problem is mental. Not checking the ball position, hanging back because of it and losing balance (to my heels) in the process. All physical problems that can be overcome by an assertive mind. Also, what about the power of visualization? Look at Jason Day actively and consciously closing his eyes prior to any swing. Also, do you see in your mind the line a well struck putt is going to take? I do, and unless my read is completely off (it happens once in a while, or the putt flattens at the hole and I didn't read that), for the most part that's what happens. There is no doubt that our conscious and unconscious mind drives all physical activity and perhaps we qualify everything unconscious as physical and the swing certainly is too fast to consciously drive it in its minute details, but the conscious mind also has a role in controlling the outcome. YMMV.
    • Sir Charles can swing this way now too. .his mental game is so strong he doesn't need both hands. (sorry ... couldn't help it)
    • A friend is planning, I think he's booked us at the Duck's in Aberlady.  I know its a small village, but do you have any comments?  
    • Completely stupid point worth (unfortunately) less than the time I spent replying. The physical skills to do so.
    • I may not be  expert on the courses (yet) but when it comes to pubs I'm your man!
