PostSubject: Wise words for parents.....   Mon Jul 30, 2012 1:20 pm

I wish more parents would listen to their children... Very Happy

"During the off season, my dad was on the range with me, and he was
like, 'Oh, I think the swing here is wrong, there it is wrong, something
is wrong.'

I told him, 'Dad, you don't know what my coach is coaching
me. I'll give you two options. One is that you can go to my coach's
academy, and you can learn what he's teaching me, and then you can teach
me.

Or, second, if you don't want to go, you can just be a dad, a happy
dad.'"

-- LPGA player Shanshan Feng of China, on the choice she gave
her father two years ago. He chose the second. Beer

So true! I had seen many juniors who used to be "lesson" by parent while they are starting to learn the game. Later in the years they improve so well and beat their parent, thus the parent had to be "lesson" by their children instead. Cheers Jump

I kept my mouth tight while sending my kids to golf , as a respect to the kids as well as to the coach. study
