Brian Symonds’ advice for golf parents:
1. Find an instructor your child gels with, who they have chemistry with.
2. Everything builds on solid fundamentals.
3. Remember they’re kids when the flags are taken down.
4. Understand the time constraints — it takes a lot of time.
5. School and education have to come first.
