Closer To Dunaway, But Not There Yet…

I can tell that I’m getting closer because my down swing plane is shallowing out even more, and I can show some visual proof in the form of one of my better swings last year vs the last time I was at the range.

I went from a very steep plane that appeared at some point in my swing research years, to a fairly neutral plane, to one that is actually getting “under” the plane that is my shaft angle at impact.

Season Day 2 Video – Driver (How I Make A Swing Change)

I went about it all wrong on Monday when I hit the range for my first swing session since last summer.

First off, I made adjustments to my action as I have been writing about, during the winter layoff, and when I got back out there, I was trying to do it all at once.

Question – How Did I Get My Swing Plane & Path To Neutral?

I would say that the things I’ve been showing you over the past few days would illustrate, if there is any such thing, a “neutral” swing plane on the down swing.

That would make sense, considering that if one’s hands are travelling a route that matches the club shaft’s impact plane, and the club itself matches that plane on the way down, that you would call this “neutral.”

More MCS Swing Plane Neat Stuff (Swing’s Not “Perfect” But Looking Good!)

I wrote the other day about having noticed something with regards to the swing plane on a stock Driver swing of mine from the summer.

It was after I had worked on my pivot to tighten it up and improve my own swing plane.

In-To-Out vs Out-To-In (And Something Really Neat)

I have taken two driver swings of mine, the first from back in 2011 when I was driving the ball as far as I do now, if not longer (there’s nothing like youth when you want to pound it), and one from this past summer.

The Tight Top Position – Remember The Mallet From “MCS Kinesiology?”

I always go back and look at various videos or pictures from previous blog postings or MCS Golf Swing videos.

Just as I suspected, when I went back to the 2015  “Kinesiology Of The MCS Golf Swing” today, I found yet another thing that conforms to my “aha” moment on the “tight top position” on the back pivot.

How The Launch Monitor Proves MCS Model Correct

As my long time readers know, I have always had issues with my down swing plane and club path through impact.

There were two reasons, the first of which I’ll address first here  – that I have a spinal deformity that twists my shoulders open when standing straight, leading to a steep down swing plane (what people call “over the top”) in the past, as well as a downward or negative Attack Angle into the ball with the Driver.

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.

Here’s How To Use The SwingRite At The Range (Video)

I don’t always take the SwingRite out of the bag during my range sessions, but when I was investigating the John Daly/Mike Dunaway leverage aspect yesterday, I made sure to take it with me because of the “feel” I had swinging it over the weekend.

More “Dunaway…” More Leverage & Power

I took some cuts today after having worked on the “feel” of that top position where I could get more body leverage, akin to the Mike Dunaway/John Daly type of move.

I’d have to say that, even on the first day, I definitely improved my leverage.  I am almost never in the 170s mph ball speed when I am working on a swing move, but today, I hit up to 178 mph ball speed.
