As promised, I had some 8 ironand 5 iron swings from various angles to show how the work is going with my decision last winter to shorten my back swing pivot and to make sure I my swing plane is on the shallower side of neutral rather than on the steeper side.
I mentioned a while back that, when your MCS Golf Swing model is set up right and you get the mechanics down, hitting balls at the range can actually get a little boring because of the consistency of action and results.
Consider last Friday at the TXG Golf testing facility where I was getting some numbers using the GC Quad Launch monitor – raw data on the irons can be found here – I was pressed for time and still hit two 5 irons within half a yard of each other in distance… and with less than 30 seconds between the two shots.
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).
This is video from May 11th when I was hitting 9, 7 and 5 Irons, with two different angles.
I feel that my swing has gotten better in the 11 days since shooting this video but I’m working on the upcoming “Project 2018” video which means that I don’t have time to keep shooting video – besides, there will be lots of swings in the video!
