Unless we are playing a competitive match, I always tell people they can play however they want, don't need my permission.
Just don"t try to suggest you shot xx to beat me when you didn't count those drops and follow all etiquette.
Since I'm launching it lower though I'm able to take a shorter, more controlled swing than I would need if I were hitting the ball high.I hit all my pitches low unless the flag location calls for a high shot.
Yes. Like I said, you have to hit it a fraction thin to engage the vertical gear effect which will actually make the ball come off with more spin than a solid strike.....and since its hit thin, it comes out lower.I use this method for 40-70 yard pitches with my LW.
