There are three things at work here.
1. The common theme in the golf media where a great player is imparting his feels and what worked for him that aren’t necessarily correct or even what he actually does. I once heard Jim Furyk say he feels he swings like Hogan. Obviously some hyperbole, but that drives home the point.
2. Those feels are not applicable to most of the public. If I posted here what I try to do when I compete in a long drive contest, everyone who followed that would hopefully quit golf before they injured themselves.
3. I always listen to tour players when they talk about playing golf and learn as much as possible. I also learn many of the misconceptions my students/clients are going to show up with from listening to them. 😀
