What A Day – Right Out Of The Blocks (Swing Theory)

You have days when something just falls out of the sky like manna from heaven, today is one of those days.

While doing my work this morning something kept running through my mind with the breakthroughs I’ve made over the past weeks, especially with the setup changes I’ve made to get where I was on Friday afternoon.

The Quiet Power Of Leverage (Diagonal & Reverse Angles)

I was struck today watching the Pro Long Drive World Championship when I had a glance at the Seniors Final, after I’d taken in the Open Final yesterday.

Right off the bat, what I noticed was that the Senior swingers have far better technique than the younger Open competitors, and the reason for this is obvious – the older you get, the higher the risk of injury in something like a high-powered golf swing, so you’d better get mechanically-sound if you don’t want to snap something.

Geek 6 Degree Driver – Lift Off

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.

I’ve Done It – Closing In On Optimal (Driver Swings)

Not perfectly executed (a little too wide a stance for perfect), but here is what I expect to see from myself swinging according to the MCS Classic Golf Swing model.

I have never been happier looking at my own swing, and to be honest, these swings are definitely good enough to feature as the swing for an MCS video, finally.

No, It’s B+ For Setup & F For Execution (Further Analysis)

Friday was very instructive, as it finally gave me the insight on how I was failing on the setup for my swing model in Friday’s session.

That said, as I mentioned that I had made an adjustment on the leading wrist which I didn’t get on video for either irons or Driver, I don’t know for sure if I had actually nailed it at the end, because I have nothing at which to look.

Swings Video From Yesterday – Very Close

Having gone over my swings from yesterday, I have looked over the setup which was exactly what I wanted to see, but for the left wrist set at address that I performed after the video shooting was finished.

As I said, the results were even better with both irons and Driver when I made that change idly while hitting my last balls with irons – and that’s the nature of discovery, in that rather than profound genius, one can make it with a casual, “what if I do this with my leading wrist on my irons, as it feels a little better in the setup?”

Today – MCS Went Beast Mode

So, I made the setup adjustments that I felt were required to get across the finish line, and I may actually have had it, but by the time I got there, I’d already packed away the video equipment.

I put some more “drop” into my “Drop & Pop” as well, because when I pulled some shots left, I figured that I was swinging too circularly and not dropping on that transition.

Still Too Much Rotation – Setup Not Pivot

I know I said that I would post video from Tuesday’s session once I’d had a chance to review the swings more thoroughly, but I am not satisfied with the overall, so I’ll have to renege on that promise.

The issue is too much rotation, and it isn’t the pivot action but the setup that was causing the issue.

Better Pivot, Nearly Identical Setup = Getting Closer

I got back out and had a pretty interesting day at the lab today, with a better pivot action and what felt like more leverage as a result, but I didn’t spend any time fiddling with the launch monitor.

Seeing that I’ll be hitting balls all autumn and through the winter at the new golf sim that has opened up near my residence, I figure I’ll dispense with the SC300i as I’ll likely get better data with the TracerGolf’s high-speed camera system.

Driver Gif.s – Yesterday Was The Transition Phase

I don’t know if anyone thinks these swings look different from my usual action or not, but there is a whole world of difference in the mechanics of what I was doing yesterday versus before.

I’ll be taking a couple of days to go over what I was doing versus what I should be doing (still too much “pull & turn” which was how I used to swing when left-dominant), but knowing the difference is the key.
