Contrary to popular belief you made your point quite clearly and I think it has a great deal of validity. While we should all strive to teach the basic mechanics of the swing in a consistent an easily understood manner, using pro's as models sometimes adds confusion. I agree the quirks and nuances many pro players employ are perhaps over-analyzed in the search for the secret for the perfect swing when in fact they may be just elements of their comfort zone. What may appear to be bad habits, a professional can get away with due to quickness and intuition that escapes us mere mortals. Michael Jordan did not quit because he could not hit the ball. He realized that after so many years away from the game the enormity of the learning curve to play at that level and at his age it was a price he chose not to pay. He quit from respect not inability. I submit this only after reading the post from Joe A. and finding it interesting that it was interpreted differently by others, which of course is what makes the world so fascinating.
Freddy, (is the name right?)
I appericate your comments. Not becuase you indicated some approval, but because you took the time to understand what I was trying to say.
You won't find that it happens very often. Too many read only to find what confirms their own already held beliefs. If they don't get it they go off into a never-never land of their own egos or what ever it is that closes their mind to the point that they can't comprehend.
Any way, thanks for taking the time to try and get my point. Its even better that you agree.
