I’m getting closer to resolving both issues of the head stability (shift or no shift?) and the trailing heel impact position, and I made a link today between the two, believe it or not.
It’s all due to the way the body is built to move and, from where I can see things at the moment, there is a direct link between having a flat or low trailing heel at impact versus one that is higher and whether or not your head shifts on the back pivot.
I made a point in a comment about Justin Thomas having very low Angle of Attackdespite his “flying foot” which is supposed to add “vertical lift” or to be “using the ground,” and I said to Joe S. that I’d check to make sure.
I had checked before, and I went to check another couple of very well-known “flying foot” club members, Patrick Rodgers and Jordan Spieth, to see what their launch numbers were saying.
There are so many good reasons to have the biased address setup – first and foremost, it’s the only one that is mechanically-optimal, because if the head is not supposed to move around during the swing, then it should be at address where it will be at impact.
That’s already been established, but here’s another benefit – with the biased address setup, those with steep or over-the-top swing plane issues will find that the setup helps keep the club in the “slot” coming down from Continue reading →
I’ve been troubled by something this entire year while trying to swing along the lines of the MCS Golf Swing model I finalized two years ago.
I also released the MCS Golf Swing eBook1st Edition last year with the intention of quickly editing and releasing a Final Edition, and I’m very happy that I haven’t yet done so, as I was waiting until I’d finished looking into certain things.
For those of you who have grown accustomed to the “throw release” concept of the power or trailing arm action, here’s one for you in order to really get the Mike Dunaway in your down swing – think “straight down” with your throw.
You all know that I’ve been pursuing Dunaway’s down swing action for my own particular MCS Golf Swingmodel, and let’s keep in mind that there can be many variations of the MCS swing action.
For those of you who watched golf in the 80’s and 90’s, you’ll remember well the 1991 Masters Champion Ian Woosnam, the “Wee Welshman” who was among the longer drivers in the game whilst standing just 5’5″ tall.
If you look at his swing from above, you can see that it wasn’t just his great Classic Golf Swing action that gave him power, it was the tight and leveraged action within that model.
