Good Judgment Requires Consideration

Categories: 2019, Newsletter, October

You’ve heard the phrase “use your best judgment” before, but have you thought about the process to make a “best judgment” decision? Judgment is defined as “the ability to make a decision or form an opinion; reached after consideration”. Judgment is one of The Nine Core Values that we emphasize in our programming here at The First Tee of Silicon Valley.

Using good judgment is very important in golf. It comes into play when deciding on strategy, club selection, when to play safe and when to take a chance, and the type of shot players consider executing.  The First Tee of Silicon Valley classes include fun and educational games that are activity-based with continuous learning where our coaches intentionally bridge what they learn in class to life experiences.  Our curriculum teaches participants that they should take into consideration the consequences of their decisions or opinions. We train them to begin by gathering information from multiple sources. Then deliberate the information by weighing the pros and cons. Finally, make their decision or form their opinion based on what they have learned through the information gathering and deliberation process.

The First Tee of Silicon Valley provides a unique youth development program providing high quality educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values, and promote healthy choices seamlessly through the game of golf.

Consider registering your child in a class, becoming a volunteer or supporting our non-profit youth development organization.
