I worked on the Post-Modern swing model yesterday and got close to replicating it, as close as I’ve gotten thus far.
The main catalyst was finally squaring up my entire body, but I have to say that it will take another session or two to get used to the dramatically different look and feel of a setup I’ve never had before.
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 GolfSwing 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.
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 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.
In case you’re wondering how to hit a very low-lofted Driver, there are two keys – the very first is Attack Angle, because without a lot of loft to create backspin lift, you must create the lift yourself.
The second is impact velocity – the ball will be spinning lower than one launched at the same angle as a higher lofted club, so you need impact velocity to get as much spin as you can because of course, spin increases with higher velocity contact.
