Junior Golf: It’s Getting Late

In today’s Wednesday Waggle we’re just reminding you that it’s getting late for taking advantage of special shipping offers to get your gifts delivered before Christmas.img_0102

There are so many good deals on so many neat items right now that it’s had to keep up. Take a look: The excellent Troon Golf Group is offering great packages at their clubs in the Mobile/Fairhope/Gulf Shores, Alabama, area. Buy a 6-pack of rounds and get some great pricing. They also have specials on logo balls, golf gloves and more. Items from very inexpensive to several hundred dollars. If you aren’t able to take advantage of the golf, buy a few logo balls. Your son will be the only kiddo in his area with them. (Dufner image golfdigest.com)

And http://www.tgw.com has free shipping on orders of $99 and higher plus standard shipping will still arrive by Christmas. There’s a Mystery Sale today. Visit their website and see what’s up.

Another company to look at is Frogger Golf. They are known for their innovative golf accessories and these items are most interesting. Go to www.froggergolf.com and check out the award-winning Brush Pro Original, Catch Latch Bag And Belt and TRAX Towel. Cool stuff!

Please also remember your brick and mortar golf shops which includes golf clubs and local driving ranges as well as Edwin Watts, Golfsmith, Golf Galaxy and Dick’s Sporting Goods to name a few. FYI Golf Galaxy and Golfsmith are owned by Dick’s so there is some commonality within those 3. Just spur of the moment stopping at a local driving range may result in some wonderful bargains. They don’t have the budget to advertise so you’ll want to swing by. Our local ranges put their golf shoes on at ridiculously low prices several times a year, but you wouldn’t be aware of it if you didn’t go by in person.

We understand everyone is crazy busy this time of year. Take time today, sacrificial time to do some creative shopping and still get standard shipping delivery before Christmas.

See you on #1 tee with something new and different… Sam

Junior Golf:Make More Time For Golf

In today’s Monday Mulligan we have a found an easy way to make more time for golf, particularly now that there is less daylight in the afternoon and early evening.image
How on earth does a parent find more time for practice or play when everybody’s day is already full? It gets dark by 5:30 or 6:00pm and there’s dinner and homework so how can you expand the clock to get the additional hours of golf time? (image jennleforge.com)
Gary Player talks about his youth, working as a teenager at the local country club. It opened at 7:00am so Gary always arrived an hour early, at 6:00am and spent the whole hour hitting shots out of the sand trap. This is, of course, how Mr. Player became legendary as the greatest “bunker/sand” shot maker in the history of golf. Nothing like hitting bunker shots at least 5 hours a week for 3 or 4 years to learn how to do it properly!image
S3 was starting his freshman year in high school and he felt like he needed to spend more time on the range. His afternoons were already full with golf team practice so what could we do? Tim, S3’s swing coach showed us how to turn on the lights at his driving range and set out some balls for us the night before. And he told the local police what we were doing. So for his whole 1st semester of high school we were at the range by 5:30am, hitting balls for an hour under the lights, went back home for breakfast and then to school by 7:45am. A full morning and a really full day, but well worth it! (Gary Player image Golf Today)
Mom and Dad, get creative. Is there a range nearby that might work something out with you? Well, you don’t know until you ask. Early, very early mornings aren’t for everybody, but then not everybody is trying to get a college golf scholarship. Help your junior golfer learn about sacrifice, learn about going beyond what everybody else is doing. It’s the stuff champions are made of!
See you on #1 tee bright and early… Sam
