Incredible Discovery Pt 2

In the last posting, I discussed the shocking revelation I had today that what I thought was square was still not square, just not as open.

So what happened when I discovered this?

Well, the first thing was that I switched over the MCS Classic Golf Swing setup and began to swing that way to see how things would change with the new shoulder focus and setup, because this model is old hat to me.

Incredible Discovery Today On Setup Pt 1

I will discuss other parts of today’s Tracer Golf session in the next posting, but this is huge.

I’ve said before at stages of my swing research that up to that point, I hadn’t ever put a decent swing on a golf ball due to impediments I put in my own path, but this really takes the cake, friends.

More Pieces Fall Into Place – The 2 Models

I’ve always said that I would only ever want to swing in one way, which is the optimal way in which to swing – however…

It would seem that there are two models of the golf swing I would consider optimal based upon how one swings or wishes to swing.

The Cross-Dominant Double-Cross Strikes Again

Here’s a deep dive into the nitty-gritty of swing modeling, for those so inclined.

I would say that it was a mistake to have been working on two different swing models last season and prior, but there is a silver lining to that darkness – I may have solved two problems in half the time it might have otherwise taken.

The Last Right-Dominant Puzzle Piece? (Also, No Going Back)

I’ve crossed the Rubicon in a way this week – I’ve been focusing on, breaking down and trying to complete my transition to a right-dominant swing (swinging right-handed, of course) and I can’t go back to the old Classic Golf Swing.

I tried that yesterday at Tracer Golf, because as I was working on the new model, I briefly tried to go back and swing the way I used to, even up to last season and into the autumn with my first forays into the golf simulator world.

Why I Swing Hard & Miss Widely

For one, I swing with mechanical-correctness even when my form is off, so I don’t worry about injuries when working on my swing or playing golf.

The second reason is my philosophy – no matter how hard one swings, if one is swinging properly, big misses are eliminated or greatly reduced in likelihood, so I want to see where my misses go, and by how much.

190 MPH Ball Speed With No Glove & A Mystery Solved

Things are progressing, swing-wise.

I’m still positive that I’m having issues setting up completely square to my target line on the Tracer Golf screen because I tried something at the end of my session and suddenly, the balls were going more or less straight instead of pulled most of the time.

I Made This GIF Six Years Ago – The Visual Hasn’t Changed

This was something I did while talking to the camera during my “MCS – Ultimate Leverage” video, released in early 2015, as some of you old-timers on the site will remember.

Over the intervening years, I made adjustments and changes to the model setup and slightly in the mechanics area, but the visual is still the same.

Swinging Right-Handed Means Exactly That

One would think that this is a straight-forward statement and even simpler concept, but I’ve watched enough so-called right-handed swingers to see that almost no one actually does it.

This is why Mike Dunaway’s swing looked so markedly different from any other swing you see, even his mentor’s – he was swinging virtually 100% with his right arm and hand.

Post-Two-Month Break – 190 MPH Ball Speed & Nearly 130 MPH Club…

I didn’t get quite get the new model nailed down today on my first foray back to hitting balls at the Tracer Golf facility.

I’ll be honest, however – I loved it every moment of it.

The most joy I’ve had in my swing research over the years have been in those solitary moments on the range or golf course, working on whatever it was I was after, and the process always gave me as much pleasure as the results.
