Incredible Discovery Pt 2

In the last posting, I discussed the shocking revelation I had today that what I thought was square was still not square, just not as open.

So what happened when I discovered this?

Well, the first thing was that I switched over the MCS Classic Golf Swing setup and began to swing that way to see how things would change with the new shoulder focus and setup, because this model is old hat to me.

190 MPH Ball Speed With No Glove & A Mystery Solved

Things are progressing, swing-wise.

I’m still positive that I’m having issues setting up completely square to my target line on the Tracer Golf screen because I tried something at the end of my session and suddenly, the balls were going more or less straight instead of pulled most of the time.

Post-Two-Month Break – 190 MPH Ball Speed & Nearly 130 MPH Club…

I didn’t get quite get the new model nailed down today on my first foray back to hitting balls at the Tracer Golf facility.

I’ll be honest, however – I loved it every moment of it.

The most joy I’ve had in my swing research over the years have been in those solitary moments on the range or golf course, working on whatever it was I was after, and the process always gave me as much pleasure as the results.

Speed Work – 190 MPH Ball Speed 128 MPH Club

That’s according to the launch monitor at TracerGolf, where I registered a drive with 128 mph club speed and 190 mph ball speed yesterday.

I didn’t bother with video or still pics because I was focused on the work at hand and wasn’t about to start messing around with the camera.

Tracer Golf Scouting Trip – Workable

I took a field trip to the Tracer Golf facility in my backyard and overall had no issues with it.

I didn’t shoot any swing videos because 1) I was wearing sweats and sneakers and 2) I wanted to just see how the facility worked as far as being able to video record, as well as get some swings in.

This Is Huge For Fall/Winter – 24 Hr Automated Indoor Range!

This is an absolutely massive development for me – I have only ever done my work outdoors, with the exception of having visited an indoor golf dome in Toronto, which was not the best place in the world to shoot video, and which was ridiculously expensive by the hour.

There is also of course the TXG analysis facility in the same city, which is very busy and usually booked for weeks ahead, to which I’ve been a couple of times, but I’ve always wished there was a place close to me that didn’t require the cost of a house down payment per hour.

What’s The Point Of A Shot Tracer If It Can Be Faked?

One of the reasons I got the SC300i launch monitor was because of its near-spot-on data points with regards to ball & club speed (more than near-spot-on as it uses Doppler radar) and carry/total yardage info (very accurate compared to GC/Trackman).

That can’t be faked, so I knew that it would be the perfect tool for doing swing research on the range without having to resort to mortgaging my soul to do so.
