It’s a cycle we have seen over and over again- the origin of the swing myth. Someone promotes the “miracle move” as what’s the secret to long drives and/or lower scores. Of course, no all time great or long hitter in the history of the game has ever done this move. IT’S BRAND NEW!
Young players adopt the flavor of the month and some of them make the tour in spite of the nonsense, then the promoters of the myth say “SEEEEEEE!!!!!!”
Then the myth perpetuates.
