You missed my point. I'm not talking about your everyday pros teaching future rec players. I'm talking high-level, well-known coaches developing future pros. They are not lazy and are building their charge's game for the top and many use a 2HBH. My point is that it is perfectly viable shot from the beginning, not just an easy way through a lesson or an afterthought.
