A thread about Kirke | Update: ON TO MEDINAH (DCP)

Great idea, posting all of Kirke's golf adventures!!  He has a nice swing.  I am rooting for him to make it to Augusta for the DCP comp.  I would love to still be around when when he makes it to college golf if he chooses.  

Best of luck Kirke!!

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Love this thread. You're taking the perfect approach to it IMHO, having a son who also started playing golf when he was 8 or 9. It's all about fun and making great memories together.

I'm liking your post Patrick. You never know what will end up sticking to your son. I also like your approach with him. We don't try to make our First Tee kids golf only kids. In fact, we encourage kids/parents to let their kids try all sports they show an interest in. Many of our participants are multi-sport kids. I think at some point these kids will discover a sport they are good or better at and will focus more on one particular sport. Certainly, I favor golf but that's not how things workout sometimes. Kirke might figure out and decide later he prefers playing a trombone. Ha! You never know with these kids.

I think we had a PM once about The First Tee. You might take a second look at it in your area and see if it's available or doable. You could contact the nearest Chapter and see if they can help even though they might not be all that close to you. There's always the PGA Jr. League. It's another program for youngsters. If it's not available in your area at this time you could even start it. The PGA Jr. League is much easier to start at your course or hometone than The First Tee. Below are a few of links.  I see a program location for TFT way up in the northern part of Michigan. Let me know if you have any questions or if I can help.

I'll post the video once I have a wifi connection, but here's a picture of Kirke with his new clubs. He was incredibly excited. Honestly, I was almost as excited for him.pixlr_20181228194523363.jpeg

This is super cool and a great idea MPR!  Kirke's swing looks good, who am I kidding his swing at age 2 is better than my swing now at 38!  Enjoy the time together.  i will definitely be following along and rooting for him in the DCP.

Congratulations to Kirke on his new clubs!

@PlaidJacket has already covered the First Tee angle.  You know I'm a big supporter as well.

I'd also check with your state golf association and your local PGA section for events and activities.  I don't know how it is in Michigan, but here in Virginia, between the VSGA and the Mid-Atlantic PGA section, there are a ton of events to play in that are close enough to make it a day trip.

Inspired by this thread my 6 year old grandson, Kevin has started to participate in my training, too.

Maybe one day they will meet up on tour. :)

Wonder were my guy got his name from. [emoji847]

A couple of weeks ago, Fox announcer Shane Bacon posted this on Twitter:

So I replied by posting the video (above) of Kirke hitting his new driver in the snow (and made it clear that the video had been filmed earlier). Shane picked Kirke to receive a hat.

It arrived today, and I hadn't told Kirke about it. So here's the video of him opening it and saying thanks to Shane for the gift.
