Question – How Did I Get My Swing Plane & Path To Neutral?

I would say that the things I’ve been showing you over the past few days would illustrate, if there is any such thing, a “neutral” swing plane on the down swing.

That would make sense, considering that if one’s hands are travelling a route that matches the club shaft’s impact plane, and the club itself matches that plane on the way down, that you would call this “neutral.”

More MCS Swing Plane Neat Stuff (Swing’s Not “Perfect” But Looking Good!)

I wrote the other day about having noticed something with regards to the swing plane on a stock Driver swing of mine from the summer.

It was after I had worked on my pivot to tighten it up and improve my own swing plane.

In-To-Out vs Out-To-In (And Something Really Neat)

I have taken two driver swings of mine, the first from back in 2011 when I was driving the ball as far as I do now, if not longer (there’s nothing like youth when you want to pound it), and one from this past summer.

Proper Setup & Pivot Eliminate Club Head Path Worries

I’m not talking about the down swing, of course – because if you’re worrying about your club path, then you’ve got other fish to fry.

That’s due to the fact that the down swing takes place faster than you can adjust.

Video: How Quiet Is A 330 Yard Drive Swing When It’s MCS?

I have a swing on video from the May session at TXG Golf that didn’t make it into the 5 drive series that I compiled to look at the Launch Monitor specs, this one being from my “warm-up.”

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.

How The Launch Monitor Proves MCS Model Correct

As my long time readers know, I have always had issues with my down swing plane and club path through impact.

There were two reasons, the first of which I’ll address first hereĀ  – 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.

What My Swing Change Experiment Tells Me (More Power)

One could say “six of one” and “half a dozen of the other,” when comparing my two Driver shot data series, if you overlook one important factor.

Everything was the same – the Launch Monitor (the Foresight GC Quad), the balls (same facility, so the Sxrixon balls would have been the same, whatever brand they were), the same driver (the Callaway Rogue Sub-Zero), and then you get close to identical top club and ball speeds.

Fades To 325 Yard Draws – Shot Data Proves MCS Theory

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.

Natural Fader DJ Hits 325 Yard Draws At The Lab… (Preview)

I showed some data from May where I had gone to the TXG Golf facility in Toronto to show how the MCS Golf Swing model allowed me to drive the ball well upwards of 300 yard and to also create a positive Attack Angle to maximize drive distance.
