Just as I suspected, when I went back to the 2015 “Kinesiology Of The MCS Golf Swing” today, I found yet another thing that conforms to my “aha” moment on the “tight top position” on the back pivot.
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.
I don’t always take the SwingRite out of the bag during my range sessions, but when I was investigating the John Daly/Mike Dunaway leverage aspect yesterday, I made sure to take it with me because of the “feel” I had swinging it over the weekend.
I’d have to say that, even on the first day, I definitely improved my leverage. I am almost never in the 170s mph ball speed when I am working on a swing move, but today, I hit up to 178 mph ball speed.
Now that I’ve fixed my own “top” position with regards to my leading arm and shaft Continue reading
The would be getting hi-res slow motion swing clips recorded.
That means, the way I demonstrated it in the “E = MCS” video from last July.
Jason posted an excellent comment & query in the previous posting, where he made the connection to the things I’ve been changing in my own MCS Golf Swing to closer match the theoretical model.
He talked about Ben Hogan’s thoughts on the wrist action in the back swing affecting shot-shaping, and although I’ve been focused on Hogan’s pivot action, I found this interesting.
