Positive Attack Angle With Negative Shaft Angle

I have said – and will be showing in the upcoming “MCS – The Kinetic Chain” video – how you can create excellent positive¬†Attack Angle (hitting “up” into the ball with the Driver) when you are properly set up with the MCS Golf Swing model.

That of course is how the modern driver is supposed to be utilized.

Beware The New Modern Golf “Vertical Lift” Bunk

Another de-bunking here, as I heard a couple of times on the PGA Championship broadcast that players like Justin Thomas get “vertical lift” by having a high trailing heel and having the front foot leave the ground at impact.

Of course, I’ve made my view clear that I think the analysts on TV have no clue why a player does the “flying foot,” so you hear a lot of bunk concerning this.

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.

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.

More Proof On Setup & MCS Mechanics = Optimal Ball-Striking

I had some posts from earlier in the spring where I talked about how I could prove that a lot of the Modern Golf Swing stuff is completely off the mark when it comes to ball-striking.

Proper MCS Setup = Longer Drives (Attack Angle, Spin & Carry)

The raw numbers data for this posting can be found on the top page & a previous posting.

The numbers session with the GC Quad provided some data that will interest those wanting to know how to drive the ball longer without killing yourselves.

Getting Some Speed Back (170s MPH Ball Speed)

I have been working on my MCS Golf Swing model since the season began again, and the first half-dozen sessions I’ve had were just to try to tune my swing to the optimal model’s stance and mechanics.

I did get into the 180’s in ball speed mph last summer once I was into the swing of things, but of course that’s after a few weeks of work, so I knew I wouldn’t be that high yet just getting into the season.

“Using The Ground” + Position = Power & Launch Angle

We’ve been over the whole nonsensical claim advanced on television that the “Flying Foot Syndrome” golfers – those who can’t keep a stable leading foot through impact – are “using the ground” when they swing.
