Doubt for a little while now and pick up a few measly wins but good stroke technique in itself provides confidence. Sure you can win by pushing and feel good for the win now but get left behind and crushed later, by those that have taken the time to learn right. We aren't all playing just for a small win over a nobody player now. Some of us are trying to make our games better in the long run.
