Beware The New Modern Golf “Vertical Lift” Bunk

Another de-bunking here, as I heard a couple of times on the PGA Championship broadcast that players like Justin Thomas get “vertical lift” by having a high trailing heel and having the front foot leave the ground at impact.

Of course, I’ve made my view clear that I think the analysts on TV have no clue why a player does the “flying foot,” so you hear a lot of bunk concerning this.

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.

Bridgestone – Tiger Watch & Open Thread

I’ll be busy for the next week wrapping up the “MCS – Project 2018” video, so I may not be as active on the blog as usual.

It’s not that I don’t have anything to say, but as any project nears completion, most of my focus is on that, and I find it hard to post on other matters while my attention is occupied.

Another Ominous Tiger Woods Post-Surgery Comment

I had made mention a little while back when word came out that Tiger Woods has been taking ibuprophen “all day” on the advice of his surgeon, to combat possible back pain onset since his return from the 4th back surgery, that one a spinal fusion.

MCS = Consistency? Video – Two 5 Irons In 25 Seconds!

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.
