My golf game improved after a friend (and single digit handicapper) advised me to relax my grip. “On a scale of one to ten, one being the club slides out of your hand and ten being a white knuckle death grip,” he said, “you should be at a three.”

Not only has my game improved, but I now can play a round in quiet enjoyment. Calm. Serene even. Even when things don’t work out the way I planned.

See where I am going with this?
