their footwork and their stroke preparation isnīt good enough to handle the pace. but virtually everybody likes to hit hard
many players donīt do a very good unit turn as well. some donīt do it at all and just arm the ball.
doing a split step is also not widely known.
by teaching all these things, and in many cases more open stances as well i see big improvements
once people learn about stuff like that it leads to more confidence and competence and less rushing
This is true. I doubt that a lot of people I've played with over the years (3.5-4.5) would have any idea what a split step is. I didn't know what it was until I came to this forum.
