Could you please provide evidence of Moe saying he wanted "forward" spin? If he said it for real it makes him sound quite strange. Forward spin, as I know from experience, is a "less" than playable shot when not on the green.
I hit a driver one time that went about 6 feet in the air before smashing into the turf a good 30 yards in front of me at about 60+ mph. I hit it fairly hard and I'm pretty sure it had topspin because it flew...
This winter I really drilled down to the core of my jump shot in basketball. Gained a lot of understanding about things I've been doing intuitively for as long as I can remember. That investigation was inspired by the Dirt. I feel like now I know how I can make any shot from any distance if I had the body strength to apply enough force to the ball to get it there.

I put a fair amount of pressure on meself when I play with my buddies due to the fact that I talk large amounts of $#^* about all the stuff I learn on this particular website.
Plus (I'm gonna sound like an enormous j-hole here but whatevs) playing basketball in high school in Indiana in a small town is a lot of pressure and I struggled and dealt with that demon so golf pressure sounds like one thing to me - FUN.
It's so easy for me to do this golf thing because...
Martin. You taught me how to hit a hook. I visualize Abe Mitchell and I just keep twirling and pulling the whole way. I'm out here barefoot stepping through everything with my back foot like a bootleg Gary Player.
Fun fun fun
