A great coach is a “custodian of the flame”, the fire that burns within each enthusiastic athlete. He will help and encourage the young golfer, without creating undue pressure, to develop their skills, achieve their potential and develop as a person.
As a parent you will want a coach who you and your child feel comfortable with, so ask about their philosophies and values.
When asked about finding a coach, US PGA Pro Davis Love said: “You don’t necessarily want somebody who is a good shop merchandiser or who is the best player in the area. You want a pro who teaches a lot, a specialist who is on the practice range all day, every day. Ask around and find a person with a reputation for teaching- period.”
