That is mostly the same for me. Otherwise I would hit it flat into the back fence. The OP though is being told he is swinging too hard and that is either because 1) He is making a lot of errors from lack of accuracy or 2) His friends don't like him blasting winners past them. In case #1 he needs to either take a little off, or swing just as hard and work on putting more topspin on the ball.
