My best lessons for get­ting a kid into golf.

With most be­gin­ners, the eas­i­est way to teach them the game is to start with the short­est swing – the putting stroke. Get them to de­velop dis­tance con­trol by hav­ing them putt balls to dif­fer­ent holes on the prac­tice green. Once they get good at con­sis­tently judg­ing dis­tance when they roll putts, strokes will come off their score­cards pretty fast.
