    When hitting a twohander is it advantageous to take a fuller cut.
    Feel free to explain the general relationship, if any, between head speed and successful execution (for this stroke).

    i´m not sure i even understand the question:)
    what is he/she asking? whether it is better to hit harder?
    too bad he/she isn´t around anymore to explain

    OP is probably playing golf by now since after 1200 views and no answer he didn't bother clarifying his question. I don't know how about you but I struggle to understand what he's asking for. Am I alone?..........nope:)

    I thought this was common knowledge.... the OP asked one of the 3 questions that will automatically get you banned here on TW forum. Even answering one of the 3 forbidden questions will get you a 3 day vacation from the site. Do NOT answer the question. And do not ask what the other 2 forbidden questions are... it will get you banned. Do not risk it.

    nice:):):)

    a three day vacation from the site would probably be a good thing.
    let me think about it
    in the meantime, what are the other two questions?

    Where's the Like button? :)

    I was actually hoping that Toly would come in with all the graphs and numbers to explain the relationship.

    Does Corbind know the answer? Or is he searching old threads?
    My take... since most 2hbh's are lefty forehands, the leverage is less, so natural swing speed is slower, but you have more control with both hands and the use of the torso twist, so you don't need to swing FASTER, you just hit the ball more solid, less brushing, using a cross between modern lefty forehand and older school closed or neutral stances.

    Its a matter of opinion, isn't it?. My wife prefers to use fuller two-handed strokes but I prefer her to use greater head speed and ball brushing for the most successful execution.

    1200 views with no answers was the beginning of his downward spiral. The rejection led to a bad attitude, getting banned here, depression, meth addiction, crime and finally jail.

    Someone could have at least told him to do a search.............
