Bridgestone’s BFit Launch Monitor App Looks Really Interesting

After I got my new iPhone this week, I began to research the different Launch Monitors that might be compatible with it.

I was pleased to find something right away that I probably had seen or heard about in passing (I vaguely recall something like this) but ignored as I didn’t have an iPhone at the time.

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 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.

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.

Shark & Bake Saturday – UMCS vs PGA Tour Stats

shark-and-bake-djNow, I’m not saying that the MCS “Ultimate Leverage” swing model will make you a PGA Tour player.  There is more to the game of golf than just the swing.

You have to factor in course management (John Daly, great swinger, not-so-great manager), short game, putting and of course heart and grit.

I can’t give a player the intangibles, I deal with the swing.  But if you have a solid swing, then your success or failure on the golf course will rest on things other than the swing.
