Here’s The Deal – A Tight Arc Beats A “Big One.”

First off, I’ve already dealt with the fictional premise of “creating a larger arc” in the back swing.

This is something that you’re told when players make a big shift off the ball in the pivot, or when they swing back keeping the right arm from bending until later in the back swing.

How Far Would Dustin Johnson Drive It With MCS?

I ask this because it seems like a lot of effort that he makes for a superb athlete standing 6’4″ to drive it 300 carry and 310 total distance.

I found a Tweet from the PGA Tour’s account showing DJ (that one) hitting driver with some stats.

Tiger Woods’ Health & Club Speed (Update – “Ice Baths?!?”

Update Below The Fold – And It Isn’t Good News **

I guess anyone watching the weekend’s WGC Bridgestone Invitational noticed that the announcers seems to be focused on Tiger Woods and his apparent stiffness, lack of energy and other things on the weekend.

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.

Natural Fader DJ Hits 325 Yard Draws At The Lab… (Preview)

I showed some data from May where I had gone to the TXG Golf facility 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.
