If you’re like me, you waste a lot of time commuting back and forth to work. So while you’re driving, why not practice golf.
No. Really. My pro friend offered me this tip for making the most of drive time:
When driving (and where it’s safe), grip the steering wheel with the fingers that are supposed to hold the club —the last three fingers of the left, and the middle fingers on the right. This will help develop strength and get you used to using those fingers to hold something in place. If you’re like me, the impulse is to grip too firmly with the thumb and forefingers. I have very strong fingers—which, when growing up in Maryland, I put to good use cracking crab claws. Unfortunately, the same strong thumb and forefingers also prevent me from properly releasing the club. I have to work on loosening my death grip on the club.
