Not sure if I understand your point Larry. The landing is either 3 point or tailwheel first.That's what the manual says and what an experienced pilot achieves.
The ground run is conducted with the tailwheel on the ground.Unless there is a bounce taking the TW off the ground, or the pilot relaxes the back pressure on the stick without full reflexor depolyment.
IMO the rudder is redundant during ground handlingWhat about takeoff below 70MPH?
but its effect is huge in flight.True, but only there.
