Unfortunately, I have become something of an expert ...
Thanks for taking the time to go into further explanation. I agree with what you just said. I still think you're original paragraph, in golf terms, was backwards. Slices and pulls are caused by the exact same swing. The only difference is an open clubface at impact. True pull-hooks, like you mentioned, are more rare than bald eagles.
