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.
I showed some data from May where I had gone to the TXG Golffacility 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.
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 that I was going to try to get to a testing facility this week to get some numbers to feature in the upcoming “Project 2018”video**, and I got out to one yesterday!
**Note: The Advance Order window with the Early Bird discount which I re-opened closes after Sunday night and will remain closed until release day. Thanks to everyone who has already placed your orders!
I was at the range today trying to get into a little better swing shape before I get out to the testing facility for my “beginning of the season” numbers (and you want to get into some semblance of swing form before doing an analysis, or else you’re just wasting time).
I don’t know how many of you roll your eyes when they start raving about driving distances on the telecasts during PGA Tour events, but I have something here that shows just how out of control things are.
We already know that you’re going to get eye-popping numbers when driving the ball on fairways that are cut faster than the average public green, but I have to say, 50 yards roll-out is just silly.
