Introducing Kids to the Game of Golf.

Teach your child to Juggle… like Tiger and Reese!

The first time I saw someone make a golf ball “dance” in the club was Chi Chi Rodriguez.  Still to this day, I am amazed at his ability to juggle the ball, make it spin a thousand miles per hour without leaving the center of the club.  As an 8 year old, I remember going back home trying to emulate the juggling of Chi Chi.

In the last 10 years, a famous video from Nike highlights Tiger Woods doing some amazing things with the golf ball…I can only imagine the millions of kids (as well as adults) that hit the driving range to try the  “juggle – juggle – juggle… swing” and power their ball 200 yards down the fairway.

The other day at the golf course, I met one of those influenced by the “fun” side of golf…especially juggling golf balls.  Meet Reese, who is a phenomenal player and an all around good kid.  He represents the “good of golf” and how golf can develop a fine young man that has a bright future regardless if he plays golf for a living or chooses a business career.

I have always been amazed by his talents, especially with juggling the golf ball.  I asked Reese to do a couple of his tricks… not bad for a 12 year old.  But more importantly than juggling a ball, when I asked Reece why he liked playing golf, his answer was “it is fun.”

Kudos to Reese’s parents for raising a fine child and teaching him to love the game of golf…and kudos to Reese for not taking all my money in our chipping contest.

Happy Juggling!
