Can junior golf compete with other youth sports? U.S. Kids Golf thinks so, and is doing what it can to help the cause.
Since 2013 on the weekend before the Masters, 80 junior golfers from the U.S. and Canada take center stage at Augusta National Golf Club for the Drive, Chip & Putt Championship. A truly unique and special event for all involved, the Drive, Chip & Putt brings junior golf to the forefront of the golf industry.
Helping propel the game forward and sparking interest with younger generations like this is U.S. Kids Golf. The company understands kids have fun learning a lifelong game, and that family interaction builds lasting memories. After realizing his own children quickly lost interest in golf when they were playing with cutoff adult clubs and junior clubs that were so heavy, founder Dan Van Horn created Ultralight kids clubs and eventually formed the company, U.S. Kids Golf.
