I've just started reading Brad Gilbert's book, it's sneaky little tactics like these that he loves and recommends
Yep. I laughed aloud when I read about it in "Winning Ugly" too...although my friend/partner had me doing it before. Wouldn't be surprised if that's where he
picked it up.
Love the title of the book. It's inspired our team's adage for mishits: Ugly...but Over.
