  The position of enough :              
                           
  Enough goes after adjectives and adverbs:

    experienced enough.              
                           
    You won't pass the exam if you don't work      
    hard enough.                  
                           
    She can't ge married yet. She's not old enough.    
                           
                           
  Enough goes before nouns:              
                           
    He didn't get the job because he didn't have     
    enough experience.              
    I'd like to take a vacation, but I don't have      
    enough money.                
    Some of us had to sit on the floor because      
    there weren't enough chairs.            
                           
You can also use enough alone              
    I'll lend you some money if you don't have enough.    
                           
After enough and too you can say for someone/something  
                           
    I don't have enough money for a vacation.      
    He wasn't experienced enough for the job.      
    This shirt is too big for me. I need a smaller size.  
But we don't usually say "enough / too " ...  for doing     
something. We usually use the infinitive after enough and too.   
So we say : "enough money to do something." "old enough to  
do something." " too young to do something"        
                           
    I don't have enough money to take a vacation.    
    He wasn't experienced enough to do the job.

    There weren't enough chairs for everyone to sit    
    down.                    
    She spoke too quickly for us to understand.    
    That picture is too heavy to hang on the wall.    
    I had to carry my wallet in my hand. It is too big to  
    put in my pocket.                
    The water is not clean enough to swim in.
