The instruction for Lil' Linksters is built around making the game FUN for the kids and getting them to want to come back for more!

US KIDS GOLF CLUB FITTING
With the golf season upon us, we highly recommend that all junior golfers be measured and properly fit into their clubs. There are many benefits to a proper fitting for a junior golfer, but we have listed a few below:
- LENGTH OF SHAFT: You want your junior golfer to be a comfortable distance from the ball when at the address position; not too close because the clubs are too short and too far away because they're too long.
- SHAFT FLEX: Many junior golfers have trouble getting the ball in the air due to swing speed. If the shaft in their clubs caters to their swing speed, it will assist in getting the ball in the air which will give them more distance with each shot.
- CLUB WEIGHT: US Kids Golf offers an Ultra Lightweight set of clubs that allows the junior golfer to swing more freely, which creates good habits in the golf swing. If a club is too heavy, the golfer may struggle to lift the club and cause bad tendencies on the back-swing. Properly weighted clubs will help your junior golfer to develop good habits and a repeatable swing.
