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.
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.
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.
Now, 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.
