Xtreme Leverage – Never So Much Power With So Little Effort

I’ve told you all about the challenges of swinging right-handed while being left-handed, the biggest one for me being the ability to swing with a right-dominant motion.

Shorter Back Swing, Flatter Plane – Irons Gifs

As promised, I had some 8 iron and 5 iron swings from various angles to show how the work is going with my decision last winter to shorten my back swing pivot and to make sure I my swing plane is on the shallower side of neutral rather than on the steeper side.

If you look at the raw data I managed to get for some of my irons, you’ll notice one thing above all else – the MCS Golf Swing model gives you remarkable consistency in ball-striking, even when you are not in the best “swing shape.”
