When I play MAXFLIs, people who I get paired up with me look down on me, disrespect me, walk on my putting line with utter disdain and talk behind my back.

Centuries of lopsided conditioning seems to have had no effect on them. I couldn't be prouder.
Is it just a matter of loss of or change in full body proprioception? Gotta be one of his greatest strengths in his heyday when he would win even with his B game. Happens over time (age related) and specifically because of re-distribution of nerve cells from the recovery process through major injuries, etc.
I don't if you can re-learn innate things like that. But if anybody can, he can. That would go a long way in his positional and motion map consistency from which...
