  1. I get the reality of this and why they’re doing it, but I don’t have to like it personally. I’m the old guy that grew up when “grand standing” and “show boating” self promotion was not looked upon as a positive thing. The whole “get off my lawn” to a tee, so to speak.

My experience showed me that I needed decent mechanics first and then this type of method did work for me. I had a severely cupped left wrist at the top and my grip was bad so that when I started using "swing the clubhead from here to there" the club face came through wide open and I was slicing badly, although my slices did seem to be hit a little harder.
