RAM Golf enters junior golf market

RAM Golf has launched two exciting new Wizard Kidz Packs. Designed to ensure that children’s initial experiences of the game are both positive and rewarding, these inexpensive sets are guaranteed to be a real hit with budding young golfers and parents.
Having thrown off its ‘stuffy‘ image, golf is rapidly becoming one of the fastest growing sports amongst children in the UK with many leading coaches commenting on how well children naturally strike the ball and learn key techniques. Indeed Tiger Woods, Sergio Garcia and England’s own Justin Rose were all introduced to the game at a young age.
Consisting of a wood, iron and putter, the Wizard Kidz Packs are intended for children in the 3-6 and 6-9 year age groups. Having taken into consideration a child’s slighter frame, slower swing speed and less power, RAM engineers developed the clubs to offer rookie golfers maximum forgiveness and enjoyment.
To help junior golfers get the ball airborne and generate maximum distance, the wood and iron have been designed with lightweight clubheads, large forgiving sweetspots and fitted with flexible lightweight graphite shafts. A traditional shaped graphite putter completes the set and will help develop a smooth consistent putting stroke.
“We recognised that many parents wanted to give their children the opportunity to try out golf but didn‘t want to spend hundreds of pounds on a full junior set that could be redundant within a few months or years. With this in mind we developed our new inexpensive Wizard Kidz Packs which I believe offer the perfect introduction to the game and the enjoyment and rewards that it brings,” said Graeme Stevens, UK Golf Services managing director.
The new Wizard Kidz Packs are now available with a retail price of £29.99.
