Generosity Tip: Use Coaches Like a Pro

date Posted: February 1, 2019

Professional athletes realize that even with all their talent, they can improve their performance with coaching and if they get into a slump or lose the edge, coaching – sometimes just a little tip – can help them get back on track.  It can be as simple as changing a grip or slightly modifying a swing.  The pro’s know that coaches can see little things that they are not noticing.
