I Play A Fade Jack Nicklaus-Style – What Does The GC Quad Show?

When it comes to shot-shaping, you all know I’ve always been highly critical of the concept of “swinging left,” for several reasons.

First, because it’s hard on the lower back – all of your force is going out and to the right (for a right-hander) and you’re trying to yank the club left through impact.

Matt Wolf’s Pivot Channels Arnold Palmer

I’ve been getting emails from the usual WAX Nation swing hawks regarding a freshman college player named Matt Wolff whose OSU Cowboys won the NCAA title last week.

MCS = Consistency? Video – Two 5 Irons In 25 Seconds!

I mentioned a while back that, when your MCS Golf Swing model is set up right and you get the mechanics down, hitting balls at the range can actually get a little boring because of the consistency of action and results.

Consider last Friday at the TXG Golf testing facility where I was getting some numbers using the GC Quad Launch monitor – raw data on the irons can be found here – I was pressed for time and still hit two 5 irons within half a yard of each other in distance… and with less than 30 seconds between the two shots.

Thoughts On Irons – MCS = Consistency!

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.”

Miscellaneous On Power/Distance On The PGA Tour

I don’t know how many of you roll your eyes when they start raving about driving distances on the telecasts during PGA Tour events, but I have something here that shows just how out of control things are.

We already know that you’re going to get eye-popping numbers when driving the ball on fairways that are cut faster than the average public green, but I have to say, 50 yards roll-out is just silly.

Jason Day Goes Stealth Heel Lift – Freeing Up The Hips

Several people who read WAX Golf have noticed that Wells Fargo champion¬†Jason Day is now employing a “stealth heel lift” on some of his driver swings, and I got one angle that shows it clearly on a drive he hit yesterday.

From not being able to play regularly the past two seasons since hitting the Number 1 World Rankings, he has now won two events this season.

If You Want To Know Why Ian Poulter Is Playing Better..

I have an observation that one of WAX Nation passed on to me with regards to Ian Poulter’s swing on weekend (thanks A.M.!).

I would hazard a guess that some of it has to do with renewed focus and commitment, but this is a guy who nearly lost his Tour card before suddenly going on a tear this year, making the semi-finals in the WGC Matchplay and then winning the Houston Open yesterday!

Luke List – How About That Swing?

If you want to see what I would call a great swing on the PGA Tour (because I don’t say that about many swings in this Modern Golf Swing era), I got a look at Luke List this week.
