Father Bonding

Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club Director of Golf, Matt Brooks, will be sharing tips on how dads can spend time bonding with their kids while doing the things they love. In this case golfing, but also applicable to any parent/child activity.

Q: What are the most effective ways to introduce a new sport or activity to children?
A: Setting expectations for your child's performance is never a good idea. I've learned to relax and not let my competitive nature take over. Just have fun, these little moments with our children will be forever cherished regardless of how foolish you might feel.

Q: What is the most important thing for parents to remember on course?
A: The most important lesson is to make it fun, let them be kids and be patient. Golf is an incredibly tough sport and the only way to get anyone to stick with a sport is to take it slow and let them learn at their own pace.

Q: What teaching methods have you found to be most effective for children?
A: Practice games can enhance learning in a fun and challenging way (Brooks will demonstrate practice game(s)).

Q: Are there any specific drills?
A: I like to play a putting game called "can you make the ball disappear." It's a basic putting drill, but simply asking children to make the ball disappear creates a fun challenge and helps them to focus on the hole

Q: Are there any specific tips or drills to keep children from getting frustrated and keeping them engaged?
A: I like to have kids use a tee from anywhere on the course. It takes some of the more frustrating variables of a golf course out of the game and keeps children focused on the basics of hitting the ball.
