I've heard of hitting through the ball from many sources.... which I think is more or less the same as "let the ball get in the way of your swing". Then, recently, I came across a video in which the instructor said something to the effect of "put your energy into the ball, not down the line". For me, that thought seems somwhere in between 'hit down' and 'hit through', but I realize it's very subjective and I'm no expert. Just throwing that out there in case it helps.
