Read an Excerpt

As many as two hundred players have come through Trolio’s junior golf program at Old Waverly Golf Club in West Point, Mississippi, for short- or long-term instruction and have gone on to play Division 1 golf. Four are currently on the men’s or women’s pro tour at some level.

“The road to being average is much easier than that of being a competitor. Many young adults can get lost in the process. They can begin to think that frustration, setbacks, and difficulties along the way were not faced by other competitors. The reality is that the road to becoming a champion has many hills and valleys. Setting outcome or performance goals without process goals is simply incomplete and can lead to immense frustration. “Trolio reflects.

“If we can help our kids set goals and let them be their goals and stay away from comparisons, we will do a better job as parents, coaches, friends,” he continues. “So often you hear ‘well he shot two under and you were four over’ or something like that. I have to remind myself all the time that’s not the approach,” Trolio continues.

“We are all given different gifts so when we compare ourselves to others or our kids to others, we are doing a disservice. We just need to teach them to be the best they can be, not the best someone else is or wants them to be,” he states.

“Youth sports is about love and learning from mistakes and the joy of playing. It’s important to give our junior golfers time and space to realize that and let them bring up the subjects,” he recounts of his own experience as a father, coach, and instructor.

Time is spent teaching the juniors not only what to practice but how to practice, not only how to hit a particular shot but also when to use it on the course, not only how to succeed but also the behaviors that will lead to the successful mindset on and off the course."
