    “Deflect the sole of the clubhead along the ground”.

    Now that is external focus. Well done Shawn.

    Driver off the deck is a terrible shot selection now, you swing 10 MPH slower off the deck than the tee, which is actually slower than swinging your 3 wood, this is confirmed from GC Quad launch monitor results.

    The verbiage causes confusion. “Deflect” means to change direction. You don’t actually want the club to change direction when you make contact with the turf, correct?

      I can hit off the mat… it’s when the ball is off the deck.
