Still Too Much Rotation – Setup Not Pivot

I know I said that I would post video from Tuesday’s session once I’d had a chance to review the swings more thoroughly, but I am not satisfied with the overall, so I’ll have to renege on that promise.

The issue is too much rotation, and it isn’t the pivot action but the setup that was causing the issue.

Better Pivot, Nearly Identical Setup = Getting Closer

I got back out and had a pretty interesting day at the lab today, with a better pivot action and what felt like more leverage as a result, but I didn’t spend any time fiddling with the launch monitor.

Seeing that I’ll be hitting balls all autumn and through the winter at the new golf sim that has opened up near my residence, I figure I’ll dispense with the SC300i as I’ll likely get better data with the TracerGolf’s high-speed camera system.

Driver Gif.s – Yesterday Was The Transition Phase

I don’t know if anyone thinks these swings look different from my usual action or not, but there is a whole world of difference in the mechanics of what I was doing yesterday versus before.

I’ll be taking a couple of days to go over what I was doing versus what I should be doing (still too much “pull & turn” which was how I used to swing when left-dominant), but knowing the difference is the key.

Look At This Grip! (And Setup Much Improved)

I didn’t hit a ball for three weeks, working instead on something that was bothering me about the setup and grip.

I was to have gone back to the range after a week following the last session but weather and life intervened, but I made it back out today, and what a change!

There’s Leverage And Then There’s Leverage

I’ve had some exciting breakthroughs in the 10 sessions swinging this season, but I don’t think I’m at the end of the line yet when it comes to leverage.

Basically, I’ve been reducing my left-side impulses, bit by gradual bit, to where I have crossed from swinging left-armed to more right-dominant, but I’m still seeing too much left side influence in both the back pivot and down swing.

“Simple & Smart” Golf Swing Breaks Golfer’s Back

It’s amazing how everyone in the Modern Golf Swing industry seems to be unable to analyze golf swings except for results-driven praise or condemnation of said motion.

When is the first or last time you actually heard a golf analyst or instructor say that a certain pro’s golf swing was problematic or an injury risk?

Tom Weiskopf’s Awesome MCS Type Swing

If you’ve never looked closely at the great recently departed Tom Weiskopf’s golf swing, or haven’t in a while, you’ll be very pleased to look at it.

In fact, other than one nit-pick, I would be hard-pressed to find anything in this man’s swing action or setup.

This Driver Swing Was Pretty Good…

There are some nice things I see in one particular face-on driver swing I shot on Tuesday, with regards to setup and pivot action.

Of course, because I got so many things right, it was a blast, and I would have thought it was close to perfect from the face-on angle of it.

It’s Been A While – Irons Face-On & DTL (9i,7i &5i)

The reason you have seen mostly driver swing videos on the blog for some time is because of my work finishing the modeling and my own swing action regarding the MCS Classic Golf Swing model.

The driver is (for most) the most difficult club to control, so for me, while working on either the model or my own swing, I know where I am by how I’m hitting the driver.
