Routine But With a Grip Change



The time has finally come. I have reached a stage in my golf development when the coach talks about routine.

I have participated in golf tournaments, essentially mixed ones, with juniors and parents. I have observed the highly qualified juniors and their beautiful skills and style. I have noticed their body language, their routine which consists of steps they do constantly before executing the next move.

At the T shot, they prepare in a certain way and on each of the nine holes, they will prepare in the same way before taking their swing. When they put, they remove their glove, they mark their ball, they study the line and perform. Each and every time. Their academy has trained them to do so. Everyone has a certain style, their own idiosyncrasies.

My coach has now instructed me to do the same, to play my routine, to slow my game down. "Think about your put, it may take time but it may save you two to three trials." Retain your habits, do the same thing each and every time.

But change your grip! I have played golf for three years and I am told to change the grip. This is a reflection on life: set your routine, get good habits but always fine tune and always work on improvement. Sometimes your grip needs a complete reform!
