Just like 90% of golf instructors that see a student walk up with a non-standard grip and immediately flip it to where they want it, despite the fact that the guy is hitting a 40-yard slice with an azinger-esque strong grip.
the bold part of this post is so incredibly lol. You will not be able to play good golf without solid fundamentals and guess what... the grip is where you are connected to the club so its um, pretty important. Golf professionals are taught to work on things like grip, stance, posture right off the bat bc without these u have no chance of being any good. There is a reason for this sequence. Why would you fix someone's swing so that they hit the ball straight with a ****ty grip so that later you have to go back, change their grip and start all over again?
and from the other side of the spectrum. It is not tilting but incredibly hilarious when you see your average golfer trying to give and receive tips to and from their buddies. Most of it is complete bs and will hurt them more than help.
as for the tee it up argument, why dont you watch a PGA tournament and see if anyone doesnt tee it up. Theyre doing if for a reason and so should you. Why would you not take a perfect lie any chance you can get one?
