Paige Spiranac provides PERFECT GUIDE on teaching your toddler to play golf

Golf is certainly a game that works to your advantage if you begin playing at a very young age. You will have a head start on the rest of your competitors with the amount of experience that you have.

Everyone wants to see the next Tiger Woods and the next Rory McIlroy emerge and if you enjoy golf in the early part of your life, you could develop into anything.

Paige Spiranac, who is a former professional golfer and who has led junior golf lessons on numerous occasions, wants to help you to introduce your children to golf.

Spiranac took her two-year-old niece to Fox Hollow Golf Course in Colorado to see if her niece showed interest in the game and enjoyed it.

One of the key points to take from the video, which is on Spiranac's YouTube page, is not to force anything with your child and be patient.

You want to make sure that when you introduce golf clubs to them, they enjoy it. If they don't show interest and lose concentration, do not force anything as this could lead to a bad response.

As Spiranac outlines in the video, you need to make it fun for toddlers. At their age, they don't need to establish a technique. You just want them to have a club in their hands to see how they swing it.

Paige brings along a set of plastic clubs and water balloons, instead of golf balls. This is another strategy to make the day fun for your young golfer. As you can see, her niece enjoyed playing with the water balloons.

Spiranac shows that by using plastic clubs, you do not need to spend a fortune on your young golfer. Proper clubs made of metal would also be too heavy for a young child, which is why plastic clubs were ideal for Spiranac's niece.

In the video, Paige introduces the club to her niece and helps her develop a basic swing. This is a good way to help your young golfer get underway and swing the club. 

The 28-year-old, who has 3.2 million followers on Instagram, has provided a great guide on how to introduce golf to young children, outlining the key points of having fun, showing them patience and letting them do their thing.
