Things Are Proceeding Apace (And As Originally Expected)

Note: This was the posting I had begun the day before yesterday’s posting on how I nearly had the complete deal with my swing theory in 2015.

You’ll see why I was blown away by Keith’s comment in that post where he said: Continue reading

There May Still Be Two Models (On Theory)

In previous years, I might have railed and considered my Tuesday range session to be an abject failure and waste of time, but that’s because I didn’t have the attitude I currently hold.

More than one attitude, actually – the first being that theories are established after data mining, analysis and lab work (experiments), and the range session was lab work.

I Have A Baseline – 170mph Ball Speed (And Stance Change)

My three best drives on Tuesday averaged 170.3 mph ball speed so let’s just say 170 is my baseline for beginning the season.

I won’t bother to post session data for 2 reasons (I’ve actually already cleared it from the app this morning).

For one, it was my first day hitting balls in 10 months and it would be silly to post data generated before I’ve got some Continue reading

Light Club Swing Should = Heavy Club Swing

I’ve said that the scourge of Modern Golf Swing instruction and practice is that people who have no business injuring themselves swinging feather-weight clubs in the modern age are doing so.

I mean, how do you hurt yourself swinging today’s driver?

The Math Says I Hit 130 MPH Club Speed @ 45.5 Yrs

Before I get to my point, I know all about the SSR and the issues with accurate club speed.

I wasn’t measuring the club speed because I only had the Swing Speed Radar device which, again, I knew to be unreliable for measuring golf club impact speed.

Tiger Woods Is Still So Good…

He literally shot -1 on one leg on Thursday and don’t let the +2 round yesterday fool you – after not playing in a Tour event in a year and a half, another back surgery and a shattered right leg, the man has scored better than all but 18 players thus far.

Granted it’s Augusta National where he could play blind-folded in the dark, but come on.

Something Strange About The Two Pivots

I’ve got back to doing speed work and something strange happened while I was getting into the standard Classic Golf Swing action with the raised leading heel back pivot.

When I would swing normally, such as when you’d be putting a nice, controlled driver swing on a tee shot, I’d get the mirror-image pivot/impact situation – raised leading heel on the back pivot, raised trailing heel at impact.

About Mental Imagery

Mental imagery is very powerful in my opinion when building, working on and performing an athletic motion.

My longest WAX Nation members will of course be familiar with the mental imagery aspect of the golf swing because of my Austin/Dunaway years (2009-2013), so this is nothing new.

Modelling Update – Indications Bear The Post-Model Out

The earlier posting about lofts wasn’t my intended topic of today – chalk it off as a rant triggered by years of watching this silly “he’s hitting an 8 on this approach!!” business when the 8 iron has a loft ten degrees lower than my 8 iron and between my 5 & 6 iron lofts.

No, the topic I was going to broach was that nothing I do with the floating pivot MCS Classic Golf Swing model can match the power of the model I’ve been working on since last summer.

I Kept Seeing Something In My Mind (Modelling)

Here’s a little posting for my old crew, hearkening back to the days I would post my swing research findings in real time.

And a revelation on this scale hasn’t happened to me in some time.
