Cameron Champ Could Be Even Longer (Shot Data)

I wrote about Cameron Champ last year after seeing him in the ’17 U.S. Open, and he’s going to be playing on the PGA Tour next season – which means you may see him pretty soon with the wrap-around season!

Now, there’s no reason that a kid hitting it 350 yards carry distance would need any more distance, but find me one person, even among the longest hitters, who didn’t want more distance with their swings.

Video: How Quiet Is A 330 Yard Drive Swing When It’s MCS?

I have a swing on video from the May session at TXG Golf that didn’t make it into the 5 drive series that I compiled to look at the Launch Monitor specs, this one being from my “warm-up.”

It was actually one of my longer drive carries, at 307 yards, and I just wanted to show how “quiet” a swing is when you leverage it properly.

How The Launch Monitor Proves MCS Model Correct

As my long time readers know, I have always had issues with my down swing plane and club path through impact.

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.

What My Swing Change Experiment Tells Me (More Power)

One could say “six of one” and “half a dozen of the other,” when comparing my two Driver shot data series, if you overlook one important factor.

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.

Fades To 325 Yard Draws – Shot Data Proves MCS Theory

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.

Natural Fader DJ Hits 325 Yard Draws At The Lab… (Preview)

I showed some data from May where I had gone to the TXG Golf facility in Toronto to show how the MCS Golf Swing model allowed me to drive the ball well upwards of 300 yard and to also create a positive Attack Angle to maximize drive distance.

Tiger Woods Does NOT Swing @ 129 MPH

Another post for the techo-geeks among us!

I have always called it as I see it, and I have myself disregarded numbers that I did not trust, such as the time I averaged 135 mph club speed, 195 mph ball speed and 350 yards per drive over 5 drives on a golf store launch monitor.

Trackman Proves What MCS & The Greatest Swingers Already Know

I got an excellent couple of links from DKondo yesterday when we spoke on Skype for about an hour on the swing, to some Youtube videos.

They show Trackman in the process of proving the MCS Golf Swing theory, and what we’ve been talking about for years here – that the proper impact spine angle is rightward tilting rather than the left-biased or vertical spine junk that began with the Modern Golf Swing madness.

Gary Woodland’s Swing

????????You should have an opportunity to see lots of Gary Woodland today at the PGA Tour’s Byron Nelson, as he plays in the 2nd-to-last group and starts the final round one shot off the lead.

Woodland is a pretty long hitter and a very good athlete, so let’s take a look at what he’s doing in his swing, why don’t we?

1st Trackman Experience! (DJ’s Theory Proven)

smash-factorI mentioned yesterday that my forgetting about Open House Day brought both disappointment and a learning experience.

I had my first go on Trackman, and although it is much like any other simulator, it has been proven to be so far the most accurate measuring device for hitting golf balls.
