He just wasn't taught using the confusing, inaccurate, and often hilarious MTM wegnerite terminology people in these forums love so much. I give up, I will no longer use the phrase unit turn or shoulder turn, or coiling even though that's what almost every coach uses in real life. I will use the term stalking the ball because it is MTM approved even though it doesn't evoke the early preparation and coiling that actually take places in modern groundstrokes. You have won. I will no longer comment.
