    Maybe the word choice should be “Guide” instead of “Push”?

    Another important thing about telling your students not to slice the ball is the fact the ball will be hit with a natural angle of incidenc.

    This video and some others of yours I can not get sound. In the past I have viewed your videos without any problem.

    Can you think of anything I can do, a setting?

    Really look forward to all of your videos!

      Not sure Terry, because these are all free videos so I just put them on YouTube which has the most flexible viewing options. Perhaps test them on a different computer??

      I prefer the continental grip, but I know some very good players do not change their grip at all and just angle their wrist more.

      Hi Brian, that is strange because it is a YouTube video, perhaps a slower Internet speed at that time??
