My Post-Modern May Be More MA Than MD

As I’ve looked deeper into the Post-Modern Golf Swing model on which I’ve been working the last year in addition to making sure my Classic Golf Swing model was optimal, I took a turn this past weekend while continuing the work.

As you all know, I do a lot of tinkering with the models while trying  to determine what is optimal, so I’m constantly changing balance, weight distribution etc., to make sure I’m not overlooking anything.

Speed Work – 190 MPH Ball Speed 128 MPH Club

That’s according to the launch monitor at TracerGolf, where I registered a drive with 128 mph club speed and 190 mph ball speed yesterday.

I didn’t bother with video or still pics because I was focused on the work at hand and wasn’t about to start messing around with the camera.

Tracer Golf Scouting Trip – Workable

I took a field trip to the Tracer Golf facility in my backyard and overall had no issues with it.

I didn’t shoot any swing videos because 1) I was wearing sweats and sneakers and 2) I wanted to just see how the facility worked as far as being able to video record, as well as get some swings in.

July DTL vs Yesterday (Improvement Notes)

Some of you, I’m sure, look at my swing clip offerings and think, “there’s no change, what’s he talking about?”

I wouldn’t blame you, because one rarely ever makes radical changes to one’s swing when using the exact same model, but I can show you what I see different in my swing from July to yesterday, showing the improvements I’ve made working on my setup and pivot.

The Quiet Power Of Leverage (Diagonal & Reverse Angles)

I was struck today watching the Pro Long Drive World Championship when I had a glance at the Seniors Final, after I’d taken in the Open Final yesterday.

Right off the bat, what I noticed was that the Senior swingers have far better technique than the younger Open competitors, and the reason for this is obvious – the older you get, the higher the risk of injury in something like a high-powered golf swing, so you’d better get mechanically-sound if you don’t want to snap something.

Geek 6 Degree Driver – Lift Off

In case you’re wondering how to hit a very low-lofted Driver, there are two keys – the very first is Attack Angle, because without a lot of loft to create backspin lift, you must create the lift yourself.

The second is impact velocity – the ball will be spinning lower than one launched at the same angle as a higher lofted club, so you need impact velocity to get as much spin as you can because of course, spin increases with higher velocity contact.
