It is unfortunate that if a Muslim leader made an outspoken statement against these acts of terrorism, they would be the next victim. It's happened in the past and would likely happen in the future.
This didn't really detract from the original statement, but it certainly puts violence as something everyone can be subject to under the wrong circumstances.
The camera is aimed at the target not where Ben's feet were aimed so the stance should appear closed. I think the title of the vid is also misleading. He is hitting a full iron shot with a pitching wedge and not a "pitch" shot with a wedge.
Good point. You're right. Sidehill is much smaller relative to the downhill slope and I focused on that. But like I said, he tended to play a standard pitch with a slightly open (lead foot pulled back from target line) stance. So if he was just aiming right instead of having a more closed stance than normal the front foot should still appear withdrawn from the target / aim line that we are looking down in this shot (as best I can tell).
So seems to me that he's aligned right and playing slightly for a pull / draw, but with a stance that is more closed than typical for a short wedge shot as well. IMO, this could be a downhill lie adjustment to ensure coming at the ball from the inside for a spinny trap draw.
