This of course refers to the insane rationalization the analysts are making trying to explain why certain swingers’ leading feet are flopping and flying all over the place through impact.
I have said – and will be showing in the upcoming “MCS – The Kinetic Chain” video – how you can create excellent positive Attack Angle (hitting “up” into the ball with the Driver) when you are properly set up with the MCS Golf Swing model.
That of course is how the modern driver is supposed to be utilized.
Another de-bunking here, as I heard a couple of times on the PGA Championship broadcast that players like Justin Thomas get “vertical lift” by having a high trailing heel and having the front foot leave the ground at impact.
Of course, I’ve made my view clear that I think the analysts on TV have no clue why a player does the “flying foot,” so you hear a lot of bunk concerning this.
It was actually one of my longer drive carries, at 307 yards, and I just wanted to show how “quiet” a swing is when you leverage it properly.
There were two reasons, the first of which I’ll address first here – that I have a spinal deformity that twists my shoulders open when standing straight, leading to a steep down swing plane (what people call “over the top”) in the past, as well as a downward or negative Attack Angle into the ball with the Driver.
I had said in the weeks previously, while working on changing my back swing pivot to shorten it and produce a shallower plane on the down swing, that I was hitting baby draw with it due to the changes I was making.
If you find it overwhelming, just bear in mind that this posting is the reference base from which any postings on the GC Quad session from Friday will flow.
We’ve been over the whole nonsensical claim advanced on television that the “Flying Foot Syndrome” golfers – those who can’t keep a stable leading foot through impact – are “using the ground” when they swing.
