I saw him shooting doubles at the US Open. Three from our kid's team were the following flight. He would shoulder the gun, then drop his shoulder while keeping his elbow in plane. I got to thinking it might lessen felt recoil as you wouldn't be beating on the muscles of the shoulder. Apparently, his comb is much taller than mine. I tried it, and couldn't get close to a decent sight picture. I have no idea if it helps recoil.
