Golf Training For Juniors Review
Here’s the truth as we know it; there was a time for juniors when playing good golf was good enough. Boy, how times have changed! If you’re like most junior-golfers, your goals include playing and winning in local tournaments, in AJGA, IJGT or other tour events, getting a college scholarship, and may even dream of one day playing on the professional tours.
In order to play to your peak potential in today’s ultra-competitive junior-golf scene, you NEED to seriously address EVERY aspect of your training… or your competitors will – and the result will likely be that you get beaten by golfers who have less talent and skill than you do. That’s lame.
The problem is that almost no one is addressing them, as they relate specifically to junior-golfers!
And if I have learned anything in my many years as a Junior-Golf Performance Coach, it is this; junior-golfers are NOT just smaller versions of adult golfers! Now, here is what we mean by that.
There are distinct differences in the way an adult golfer should train, eat and mentally prepare for a round, compared to his 13 year old son or daughter. And it is precisely these differences that can make or break the budding career of a junior-golfer. Just as one example: Did you know that through extensive studies, it has been determined that there are optimal “windows of opportunity” in regards to training specific elements of a junior-athlete?
By “elements” I am referring to Stamina, Strength, Speed, Skill, and Mobility. If a junior-athlete misses these windows, their overall potential in each area is compromised… there is a “ceiling” on how much they can improve. But it gets even more complex than that…. For example, the junior-boys “windows” for speed are ages 7-9 and 13-16. BUT, we are NOT talking about chronological age…. instead we need to track the biological (or developmental) age.
That means that your son or daughter may actually be primed for a specific element of training before or after some of their friends who are the “same age”. We actually have to track growth spurts and then adjust the specifics of training accordingly. Now, I’m not throwing all of this nerdy exercise science around to impress you, but rather to impress upon you, the vital importance of addressing not only your aspiring junior-golfer as part of a group of young athletes, but as an individual.
In my view, it doesn’t matter if your junior just wants to make the high school team, or has aspirations of winning The Masters. They deserve to take advantage of the latest research and knowledge in order to play to their peak potential, stay injury-free, and ENJOY themselves.
