More and more parents are taking their children out onto the golf course, yet few of them are effective teachers or coaches. With this book, Tiger Woods' childhood golf instructor, Rudy Duran, instructs parents on how to nurture confidence and enthusiasm in young players. Golf can be a frustrating and complex game, and beginners, especially children and young adults, can easily become disheartened and overwhelmed. Children are naturally optimistic, which makes them terrific learners. Duran discusses how parents can preserve and foster their child's positive outlook, and keep out the negative qualities that end up plaguing so many golfers. Duran cultivates players' enthusiasm by making lessons fun, and basic. With anecdotes and step-by-step techniques, he offers a formula for parents who are struggling to find the balance between encouraging and instructing their children in the world of golf.
