Not gonna happen.
She has played this way for 20 years, and she simply is not interested in going backward to learn a new way to play. She watched my entire process of changing to SW grip, and she made the conscious decision not to do the same.
Her strokes are her strokes, and she is going to take them to her grave. There must be a way to handle the poaching opponent with a 4.0 woman's Conti strokes. Right?
