Like most youngsters today, you have a dream. If your dream is not professional at this time, it could be sporting. Then again, these days, most sports have already gone pro, has been so for many years. And golf is one of those sports. There is an old saying among grandfathers. If you want your kid to play a sport, any sport for the time being, and you want him to be rich and famous, never having to worry about another dime for the rest of his natural life, you put a pair of golf clubs in the little one’s paws.
And there you go. How else do you think old Tiger got to be the best. He started at a very young age. And before going pro, he was the world’s best ranked amateur. This is where too many young fathers and their kids tend to give up. On the one hand, it’s very easy to put a football or soccer ball in the kid’s hands. It’s also easy to get him a glove and ball. For softball or baseball. And there you go, he can start knocking about with the other kids at the park. These balls and things don’t cost you more than a dime or two.
At least they don’t need to. But a set of golf clubs and those white pockmarked balls, on the other hand, have always been so hard to come by. It doesn’t need to. The market has not yet been oversaturated and there’s plenty to go around. You don’t need to start with the best Titleist or Slazenger, not just yet. You can always make a secondhand purchase for the time being. It’s humble beginnings chaps, but that’s where it all starts.
