As midnight hits... I spent 2 hours (soaking in old book literature and 80s era content) on the "youth" years in Tigers @tigerwoods
Jr. golf journey. I Currently have 9 juniors I'm fortunate to coach (7 boys, 2 girls) Going to Callaway Junior Worlds this year. If I do travel to Pinehurst for the event, you can find me watching from the clubhouse, peeking through the blinds! Back to Tiger, I really wanted to study the father / child relationship. I wanted to make sure (no matter the Green Barrett mindset in Earl) you all know he raised tiger to have fun, while being challenged. It's what I constantly repeat with my parents and juniors. Basket training, horse, 5 part plan drills for money, prizes, to challenge each other with you as parent or another student. Hit targets. Hit Low, Mid, High shots. Put him/her in a tough lie/situation and see what they can do. Always, listen to what they would do and or how they would approach the task first. Then help, if they are unsuccessful. Ask them why. Remind them they usually have the answer if they take their time. Learn them! Then they will learn for you! So... Tiger mentions "The best thing about those practices was that my father always kept it fun," Tiger wrote in an introduction to Training A Tiger. "It is amazing how much you can learn when you truly enjoy doing something. Golf for me has always been a labor of love and pleasure." So in preparation for Worlds, challenge them with the toughest of situations, yet with as much fun as space mountain backwards! 👊🙏🤙💪👌🕺🏻⛳.
