just wondering what this modern stands for?
If you don't like the term, don't use it. I also call them tournament strokes if that
suits you better, because they have been used thru the years by most of the
best tournament players.
Modern is the name of one of the 1st instructional methods to teach tournament
strokes. Before Modern Instruction was developed, most taught a flawed classic
stroke.
