I think it depends on what kind of exposure...
Kindergolf starts at 2 years old if I am not wrong.

Junior program at Heartland starts at 6 years old (if I am not wrong)

Can ask punkrockpga, he teaches there.

start young is good, but under 5 is really not very necessary.

6 or 7 maybe..

here is my view.....I think hor.....to get jr to do golf, one should expose him to sports...all sports...eg. badminton, soccer, rugby, chatek, goolie, catch spider,

this will build up the coordination of jr.....after that, around the 8-10, then expose them..and I think hor, the natural skils acquired during games like chatek, goolie, spider will help to nurture jr..

of coz, if jr already exhibited talent like Tiger, then jump start lor.....golf first, then play goolie, spider later in the years.

Duval,

Times of Goolie and spiders are over. how many kids now know how to catch spider?
they know FB, PSP, XBOX.

KS parents force kids to learn PainO, Speech and Drama and popularly belief marketable sports like GOLF and tennis...

Kids where got chance to choose to play Goolie...
