The ability for players to fast-track is at an all time high. What took many of us years to learn by getting our brains beat in is really unheard of thanks to Youtube and social media. And, that's not a bad thing. It's really this way in all sports, equipment is better, education is better and at our fingertips, etc etc. I find now that I am in my mid 40's after taking 20 years off it's easier to improve my game than ever thanks to everything we have to watch. And, I will also say it seems todays players are much more willing to share because the days of hustling are far behind us for the most part.
