Incredible swing for one so young, heck, incredible swing for anyone. Make sure you quiz your instructor on the ball flight laws, you don't want to waste your time with a dud. ;-)

Ok so how can I get a swing as solid as that? Erik do you want to adopt a 31 year old half Mexican?

Depends on the other half… and how well you can cook.

Let's not get too far OT in this thread, k? :)

Very nice looking swing. I have said it before, it looks like she produces a decent amount of power. What do you have her working on?

Very good swing there, my daughter is 10 right now and needs to get back into golf, she attended first tee and "girls golf" and seems to like it, her swing isn't as technically sound as Natalie but I can definitely see some athletic ability trying to shine through. By the way how old is Natalie?

She was 3 when she had her first "set" of clubs (not plastic).

We can discuss over PM's if you think it is off topic, but at 3 can you share some specs of the first set? Did you just cut down a set you had? Bought a kids set?

I got tired of my kid showing me up in my own My Swing thread, so I'm putting her swings here from now on.

That is all.

I think she has a bright future in golf.

I should start one for my son, a.k.a. "The Boy".

Her head was going forward in the backswing. So she is feeling like during her backswing she can see more of the back of the golf ball.

Needs a little Key #2 work when the ball is on the ground, but she's at Girl Scout camp right now, so… Wednesday. :)

11. Bone age of a 7-year-old though, so she's very small. She'll be 5'5" or so in the end, she is just "delayed" and will grow several more years longer than other girls.

I tell her that's an advantage. If she can almost keep up with girls her age, and learn to do that, when they stop growing they may plateau, and she'll keep improving right through high school even if her mechanics stayed the same because she'll get taller, and thus longer, and taller/longer, and taller/longer.

Basically, other girls can mask crappy swings because they hit it fairly far, but they may be much, much closer to their ceiling than Nat may be.

I believe it was the smallest U.S. Kids Golf set we could find. https://www.uskidsgolf.com/shop/equipment/39-tall ? It was too big for her back then, but she grew into it.

She has a Maxfli set right now (Driver, hybrid, 7, 9, SW, putter that we replaced with an Edel). She has this Callaway set on the way: http://www.callawaygolf.com/junior-clubs/juniors-x-9-12-girl-2012.html . The driver is 40". Her current driver is about 34".

The Callaway set will probably be a birthday (November) or Christmas present. Though it's tempting to let her use the driver during Drive, Chip, and Putt.

Just some work from a lesson recently. Was getting too close to the ball and too shallow into the ball leading to lots of thins. Driver has predictably been pretty good lately. :-) Really like that third picture.

    • Welcome to TST! Once you've played golf you'll always come back to it regardless of the length of the gap or age. Enjoy the journey!
    • Admirable!   Me--No matter where I bring my hands on the backswing, it's the downswing and impact speed that determine how far I flight a ball.  I might bring the back to shoulder, then my brain computes the distance and decelerates the club. On short shots, just the opposite.  Maybe tempo is my problem, but I do okay trusting my brain to the throw the club.  Too much technique and thinking really mess me up in the longrun.
    • Shot 89 today. Drove the ball very well, lost four balls on approach shots. Two were with a wedge in my hands inside 100 yards.
    • I wouldn’t. I like to see one number on the top as I quickly pull it out of my bag to play my next shot. If you want to know the loft of your club, say for gapping purposes, then look it up. Knowing the static loft of your club is not going to help you on the course, and does nothing but force me to look at two digits instead of one to determine which club I’m pulling out of the bag. 
    • This is disconcerting as I was Pfizer'd and if given a choice, back in March, I said I'd take Moderna, but because it was easier to store, not that I had some foresight of its effectiveness relative to Pfizer.
