  1. Just wanted to share a story that happened the other day. I was at the range practicing, and a kids camp had just finished. But a mom with her 2 kids a daughter of about 5 and a son of about 8-10. He was wearing his Titleist hat with pride and joy. Now as well know kids can be a bit noisy at the range, but I was patient. but with Covid going on Mom doesnt have a lot of options of keeping her kids busy especially her son. I talked to her brielfy, and she was happy for Golf as it was something her son is really enjoying. Enough so that she had enrolled him in lessons as he did so well at the camp. the son had a decent swing, but also had a loud voice. So instead of being cranky about it, I pulled out a sleeve of my Team Titleist balls. I said to him " now if you can hit that 100 marker with your driver, I will give you this sleeve of Prov1 Team Titleist balls of which you can not buy anywhere" Now he had a bucket of about 40-50 balls, and he began to concentrate and focus on his swing. which was great for my He never did hit the marker but came close a few times. So in the end he was sad, but I told him that because he tried so hard and focused on his swing lessons, that I would give him them anyways (also told him to keep one at home and never play it). And I also told Mom about Titleist website and some of the benefits of Titleist for when her son really begins to play. I think one day he will become a TT member, and it was very satisfying to make a young golfers day.

  2. Gotta grow the game, sounds like you added to it today! Love hearing youth soak up golf early in life, something I am trying to do with my daughter.

    Great way to teach them many lessons... One other lesson he learned from you was that golf is a social game and that they do not need to be afraid of the "old guys" out on the range. They are not all grumpy :)
