How are your comfort levels?

You have someone to come you. They only play golf once a month. Strong grip. Hit it really well for someone who doesn’t play but sometimes pulls it. They’re interested in hitting nice shots and don’t take golf too seriously.

The first reaction would be…change the grip to stop them pulling it.

But, and it’s a big but…

How are they going to feel once you change the grip?
Probably uncomfortable.

Where will the ball probably go?
To the right.

Will they practise enough to instill these changes?
Probably not

So you’ve made “technically” a good change but they will probably leave hitting it worse, hitting it to the right and also feeling really uncomfortable. Yes, we can say that they’ve just got to work on it but they won’t. And we knew that they wouldn’t.
