It's not just pace it's accuracy. If you use spin you don't need to be accurate. Most balls will land well inside the line. The older players learned to hit with both pace and accuracy. My whole argument is not only that the older players hit harder it's that they hit with more accuracy. Second, I'm not sure about the pace argument. If Gonzalez hits in a straight line and FAA hits with the same pace but ball travels further distance because the trajectory is loopier, which one is hitting harder? I'd say Gonzo because the shortest distance is a straight line.
