We report all too frequently on parents who get carried away at their kids games, but apparently this asinine behavior has invaded the decorous game of golf.
Jesse Huessner, the sports editor of the online newspaper at Staples High School in Westport reports that the CIAC banned parents from matches, because, well…
“Staples junior Eric Gallanty ’11 has seen parents “kick” competitors balls into the fairway to give their kid an advantage.”
Jesse writes that “Parents care more about winning than their kids do.”
Maybe parents should teach their kids a lesson of value: how to lose, and learn from loss.
