The importance of the parent's role in the healthy development of today's junior golfer, both as a player and as young person, is the focus of Golf Parent for the Future. Co-authored by Lynn Marriott and Pia Nilsson, this groundbreaking publication is a must-read for anyone whose child is either beginning golf, or who already plays the game and perhaps aspires to progress into new competitive arenas.
Parents of young golfers are given excellent advice such that: "You can create an environment where they will learn how to win and keep their motivation high. They'll learn life skills that can contribute more than you'll ever know to their physical and emotional well being." Marriott and Nilsson offer their readers clarity and focus by highlighting four areas that enhance the relationship and communication between the junior golfer and their parents. These four "insights", the authors believe, are among the most important for being a great golf parent for the future.
Such has been the enthusiastic response to the publication, that the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) purchased a copy for each of its members. The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA), United States Golf Association (USGA) and The First Tee also purchased copies for their respective youth initiatives, and other golf organizations in the U.S. and abroad have used the booklet as an educational tool for their junior programs.
