That's kind of why I said "I think…" I'm just saying this: What's popular is not always best. What's best is not always popular.
Credentials don't matter much to me. I'm a big fan of the information. In my experience, people win awards more for politics and marketing than quality of information.
But now I'm repeating myself, and I hate doing that.
I'm not going to belabor the point, but the clubhead moves back, up, and in. It is never traveling straight back. It's a 3-dimensional arc.
Feel ain't real so the feel may work, but I haven't ever really had that feel work for anyone, and I don't think it will work at all with Matt.
Believe it or not, I do hit the ball solidly more often than not. Do I mess up or mishit or hit more toward the toe or heel sometimes? Yes, of course. But I am a much better ball striker than you give me credit for. Which is understandable, you don't know me nor have you seen my swing. I would caution you to start making assumptions on things you truly do not know about.
Golf is my job, and you'll also note that I said "I doubt." That is not the same thing as saying I "know" or I'm "certain."
You missed the point.
I could hit a shot that feels "thin" to me because I knew it was a half a groove low, and it might feel super solid to someone who doesn't break 90 with regularity. I've caught a 7-iron slightly heavy (a few blades of grass?) that land on the front of the green, and playing partners were impressed, but I knew it was slightly mis-hit.
I just remembered… you're the guy who hits it better than a PGA Tour player from 150?
Let's just move on, eh? Matt is comfortable with what he's doing.
