The ones you don't see throwing both in tournaments are usually the ones crying about how the course it "too lefty/righty friendly". When you can throw both it's advantage you.
one last thing...a forehand hyzer and a backhand turnover/anhyser shot have two different flight patterns.
U have the most consistent sidearm shot i have ever seen. if u added a little D you'd be a force to reckon with. teach me your ways!Sidearm wrote:I throw mostly righthand sidearm shots & I've been telling myself for years that I need to rediscover my rhbh drives (which I threw exclusively the first 4 or 5 years I played -- the "creek hole" at Seneca Creek is where my transformation to sidearm began). Undoubtedly, it's important to be able to throw both backhand & sidearm shots when situations call for one or the other.
However, the poll reveals a bias that I have felt for years. Although the majority believe, like I, that it's best to be balanced, 17 voted for backhand vs. 2 for sidearm. Why such a big difference? I believe sidearm players, like myself, are often viewed to be lacking something in our game more often that those who exclusively throw backhand shots. Although I don't put in enough practice to be anything other than a lifetime jayvee player, I believe there will be more & more players with ratings over 1000 who throw sidearm almost exclusively.
Again, I'm not arguing that more people should always throw sidearm off the tee. I'm simply suggesting that it's no better or worse than those who always throw a backhand shot off the tee. So don't pity us -- learn from us!

IMO a long anhyzer is equally pretty when thrown forehand!
IMO this is one of the hardest shots to execute. If your right handed and throw back hand, I would think the hyzer would be the safest and best decision.
