Our 2 year old toddler golfer, Kingsley Weber, seems to have quite the golf swing. Watch him drive, chip and putt. That’s what he asks to do every day — hit golfballs. UPDATES now at KingWeber.com as King’s golf has grown a life of its own.
Back story: We are definitely a sports family (anything with a ball) though not golfers, per se. But after his dollar-store plastic club exploits, we bought him an old cut-off Spalding steel 7-iron ($3), and some used golf balls for the backyard… and quickly realized we better let him roll with this theme.
All this video (except for the early plastic club shot) was recorded in the 63 days following April 8, 2015 (the day we bought him his first club) On that day, King was age 2yrs 217 days old.
Some people have told us he reminds them of the 2 year old Tiger Woods. A bit of a stretch, probably. For now, King’s job is just to be a kid, have fun, and follow his passion — which does appear to be golf, as that’s ALL he talks about. If it turns out he’s still crazy about golf next year (he probably will be), we will crank up the facilitation to try and keep up with him.
King may not be left-handed, but we think the Bubba Watson comparison works better. King is a funny kid, has a big heart, marches to his own drum, likes golf trick shots, will (hopefully) develop Bubba-like perspective on the priorities of life… And he won’t be getting a swing coach or a golf lesson any time soon. 🙂
