Video – Working On The Hogan “Plane” Concept

Here is a short video clip showing some swings from yesterday’s session where I continued my work on the Ben Hogan “Plane” concept.

I only shot the two angles shown today because it wasn’t so much my intention to post the video, only look at it for myself, but I know that the usual suspects are always up for looking at MCS swings!

Pow – I Think I’m Done (Hogan Plane Concept & It’s Great)

Sometimes it’s a very old concept that you’ve never really “gotten” that becomes a new one when it clicks for you.

I was swinging yesterday at home with my SwingRite and for some reason, a thought popped into my head while working on the new top position for my back pivot.

Some Irons Gifs – U.S. Open Sunday Thread

Well, it seems I missed quite the day on the links yesterday in day 3 of the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills!

I will confess that I was up late Friday and early Saturday (to watch some World Cup matches), and that by the time I got around to watching the leaders tee off in the afternoon, I was more interested in watching the insides of my eyelids than the tournament.

Shorter Back Swing, Flatter Plane – Irons Gifs

As promised, I had some 8 iron and 5 iron swings from various angles to show how the work is going with my decision last winter to shorten my back swing pivot and to make sure I my swing plane is on the shallower side of neutral rather than on the steeper side.

MCS = Consistency? Video – Two 5 Irons In 25 Seconds!

I mentioned a while back that, when your MCS Golf Swing model is set up right and you get the mechanics down, hitting balls at the range can actually get a little boring because of the consistency of action and results.

Consider last Friday at the TXG Golf testing facility where I was getting some numbers using the GC Quad Launch monitor – raw data on the irons can be found here – I was pressed for time and still hit two 5 irons within half a yard of each other in distance… and with less than 30 seconds between the two shots.

Thoughts On Irons – MCS = Consistency!

If you look at the raw data I managed to get for some of my irons, you’ll notice one thing above all else – the MCS Golf Swing model gives you remarkable consistency in ball-striking, even when you are not in the best “swing shape.”

GC Quad Shot Data – 7i & 5i

Here is the raw data from the May 28th numbers session at TXG Golf facility using the Foresight GC Quad Launch Monitor.

Again, this is just the data itself, which future posts regarding the shot data compiled will reference.

MCS = Two Clubs – One Swing (PW vs 5i)

To illustrate how the MCS Golf Swing model should work when you’ve got your setup and mechanics going properly (not perfectly, but properly), you can see my point that you swing from the same setup with essentially the same mechanics no matter what club you’re swinging.
