Natural Fader DJ Hits 325 Yard Draws At The Lab… (Preview)

I showed some data from May where I had gone to the TXG Golf facility in Toronto to show how the MCS Golf Swing model allowed me to drive the ball well upwards of 300 yard and to also create a positive Attack Angle to maximize drive distance.

At the time, I was swinging with my “natural” action, which with my scoliosis produces a strong “out-to-in” path at impact, making me a natural “fade” swinger if I just went with that:

During the last few weeks however I have detailed how I made swing changes to adjust the plane of my back swing and top position, in order to take the steepness out of my natural action’s down swing plane, and to get the shaft on a more neutral-to-flatter plane than usual, and how I simply used the MCS Golf Swing model to do so:

Well, you’ll all likely want to see what I did at the TXG lab yesterday, after not having hit a ball in nearly a week’s time (last time out was Friday July 20th)!

Granted, I didn’t hit every drive perfectly as I was working by muscle memory, and hadn’t even done my SwingRite work during this week (just a few swings before heading out).

I took 5 swings where, after I had gotten warmed up and used to the feel of the Rogue (which I hadn’t swung in 2 months), and those swings had 4 in-to-out paths with one virtually dead down the line (0.1 degrees out-to-in).

However look at what can be done, looking at the 5 swings ( I wasn’t terribly unhappy with:

Sample Drive – 2nd of 5

You’ll see later that I played the target line as my starting line (where I would start the ball down the right side playing a draw) and with an inside-out club path of 0.6 degrees, producing a drive that drew 12 yards, your perfect baby draw.

So, after a week not hitting balls, I was able to go the lab and hit drives like the one above, with nearly 310 yards carry and 330 total yardage, with a club speed short of 120 mph and a ball speed just approaching 170 mph – due to getting positive Attack Angle of 4.7 degrees and 2131 rpm back swing.

I’m a 48 year old swing researcher and analyst.  I don’t play golf regularly, or work out, and I don’t spend hours per day on the range – in fact I hadn’t picked up a club in a week… but how many pros would buy those stats above if they were for sale at the golf store?

All of what I’ve done has been to fully apply the principles of the MCS Golf Swing that are explained in the “E = MCS” swing video.

No more, no less!

Of course, I’ll be breaking the swing and things like this down in greater detail in the follow-up video “MCs – Project 2018” which will be out shortly.

    Been off the grid for a bit, DJ. Back in time to see this and all I can say is ‘Wow.’ These would be eye-opening numbers for a top Tour power hitter. That you can do this with a minimum of practice and without killing yourself? Stunning. I’m looking forward to the video and thanks for the work!

      Thanks for the kind words, Van. It’s not so stunning if you get used to the fact that positioning, technique & natural leverage will provide most of the power you need to drive the ball long distances.

      Hard at it, the work on the video continues! 🙂

    loving these numbers deej. its one thing to see the swing & know you’ve got speed & power but its another to see the numbers. like you said last winter you were going to show & prove!

      I did indeed, DBC. Anyone with whom I’ve ever hit balls or played golf knows I don’t fudge my numbers when it comes to distances – I can remember only one long drive on the course that I’ve ever hit by myself and all others were with others. Some out there who haven’t ever met me, like to have the proof, so that’s what I’m providing! 😀
