Like many kids of my generation, I was taught to make the Power V at the Point Of Contact.

To hit the ball at full Extension.

The problem was I couldn't make it work.

I couldn't get around fast enough.

Yes, when I managed to hit the ball, I'd crush it.

But usually foul.

And to the opposite field.

As it turns out, what I taught was wrong.

It wasn't what the best hitters did.
