Part of this is that the tenets of S & T are now being emphasized by instuctors not under the S&T umbrella. I have repeatedly heard players and instuctors using phrases like cover the ball, use the ground as a power source, etc. S & T mostly tries to identify historically proven concepts, test them against science and provide a framework to learn them in. For those focused on ball striking, especially with the irons S &T has a lot of merit. For those with other priorities, distance etc emphasis on other things, provided you have the talent, John Daly for example, may suit you more. Commentators hob nob with the golf establishement. Because of this I feel they are very resistant to ideas outside of the old guard of players and instructors. From my perspective this is both good and bad. Some fashionable ideas turn out to be worthless, on the other hand some good ideas get rejected. Either way I always remind myself that what works for a talented young PGA player, x factor, for example, makes little sense for my middle aged body.
