First, I have been getting a lot of questions regarding Frank Nobilo since his shout-out last Saturday.
The truth is, I have never publicly talked about our conversations because I enjoy our back and forths, and I wasn’t going to advertise that we talk in an attempt to gain anything from it other than the pleasure of our discussions.
That said, the cat is out of the bag, and FN said quite logically that there’s nothing wrong with simply saying that we like to talk swing together, so let’s move on…
Before we get to Brandel and Rory, let’s talk about AoA.
AoA stands for Angle of Attack, and I don’t know what Brandel Chamblee thought he was going to accomplish arguing with Rory McIlroy on how to swing modern drivers, because Rory is one of the best drivers of the modern era, especially at his size.
I have figured out a way to slow down the Mike Dunaway“stickman” swing gif. that I created years ago, and I found his positions to be illuminating.
There was a lot of discussion back in the Mike Austin days of the then-named DJ Watts Golfblog (later changed to Wax Golf when my swing theory diverged from the Mike Austin model in 2013), about their impact positions.
I’ve been taking a little break from things after returning from California on Saturday evening. After a week of intensive swing consultation, it’s nice to unpack and just relax a little.
One thing that came back to mind was how amazed I was that Blake Elliott could generate the distances he got with his driver. I’ve always felt that my driver distances were a little short of what they should be, based on my irons and wedges – and Blake showed me I was correct.
I was sent this article on how to increase driving distances, and I was rather amused reading through it, because you’ll remember what Jerry “Big Toilet” Crowell has to say about the MCS swing theory – that he will only use Trackman and MCS swing theory when swinging or teaching the swing.
So, the article which I’m linking was amusing in that as I read off the points contained in the part I’m quoting, I was hearing Big Toilet’s voice in my head saying, “MCS & Trackman…”
