Wouldn't be the first time one of my nutty,half-baked, often mocked, ideas take on a life of their own. As for my motivation, I tend to offer up things on the spur of the moment, regardless of what others may think. Most are silliness, some worthwhile, but all are original thinking notwithstanding that they are often having been influenced by something or someone else. I take no credit for the good, but accept the criticism of those that are not. Regarding the above, recall Sam Snead's frontal "penny pitching" style that was outlawed and he opted to go side saddle.
I've been working one this since reading LSW earlier this year. A full swing with my 8-9-PW tended to turn into a pull which generally ended up past pin high in the inevitable left green side bunker. Now I'm working on a 3/4 swing and flighting those irons (added 7i to the mix) and I've helped reduce the pulls - but I counter by thinning around half the shots. Now I seem to have a nice a straight ball flight - just some are waist high as they scream over the green. Oh Well, at least I have something to work on during the winter ;-).
