I seriously wonder if SC started these "axe / hammer" analogies after hearing from SW22 about the analogies we used for disc? Seems really close to the exact stuff we were discussing. Not a knock, just seems too close in timing to be a coincidence.

I didn’t wonder at all. Seems 100% the case.

People have been using hammer/axe swing analogies to teach the golf swing for as long as I can remember. For sure back in the 90’s. The whole idea of “natural golf” was inspired by hammering nails.

I commented on one of his videos that Disc Golfers have been using his info for improving the backhand and also sent him a video of my swing. He replied with "that's awesome!" or something positive along those lines, so he definitely knows we exist. hahah
