The Zen of Putting

WNMLF league practice round
Friday, September 4
Civitan Country Club

Special guest golfer and golf coach extraordinaire Stephanie joined us for the round. This woman can not only hit the ball and finish at 3 over par for the entire round—she has good golf wisdom to share that comes with positive reinforcement.

“Great swing,” accompanied by a high 5.

“Smooth stroke,” on a putt that almost went into the hole.

“What about the putting grip?” we asked.

“Ahh,” said Stephanie, “that depends on the artist who is holding the putter. It’s a zen thing. Tiger is so good because he’s creative in how he uses his clubs. You go for the feel to figure out what works.”

Zen mind. Golfer’s mind.
