As promised, I had some 8 ironand 5 iron swings from various angles to show how the work is going with my decision last winter to shorten my back swing pivot and to make sure I my swing plane is on the shallower side of neutral rather than on the steeper side.
There’s a reason for every single thing that is in the MCS Golf Swing model theory.
You’ll hear a lot of talk in certain circles about the need to “move behind the ball” on the back swing pivot, but that is only because the swinger is not where they need to be at impact when they begin that pivot.
Just a note that the blog is not going anywhere, and that if you find all of the posts before a certain time have disappeared, no cause for alarm!
I will be removing most of my historical posts, as I do from time to time, either because they are out-dated or because they are clogging up the feed. The most relevant and popular posts will be re-posted once I’ve a chance to review or update them.
As you all know, I usually swing to play a fade, because most people will either play a fade or draw depending on how they come through impact.
Today however, I was working on my positioning to get the deepest possible “drop” in my “Drop & Pop,” which makes it easier to shape a draw if you’re a natural fader, and the results were… interesting!
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.
