Golf and your children

I read an interesting article from the SFGate that reported Bobby Clampett was entering the Open at ebble Beach. The article explains how his passion for the game is stoked at this venue.
What interested me, was how playing golf with his 16-year old son has helped him to become better than he was when he was a regular tour pro.

That got me thinking, could that be the reason you see so many older pros extending their careers? Could our children hold the key to endless golf passion? Another golfer that comes to mind is Bill Haas. His son Hunter is a budding pro, and it is well documented that he and his father play regularly.

In golf, we are always on the lookout for "the next big thing", and that normally brings up fantasies of shiny new equipment. But I believe "the next big thing" is right under our noses....right now, mine happens to be about 3 feet tall.....and I'm looking forward to the day I can walk 18 with him.

Thanks for reading, keep it in the short grass.
