Having built the rough outline of my Dunaway-esque swing model, I am now transitioning to investigating it thoroughly to make it optimal.
For myself, this means reverse-engineering the setup (I have the basic setup but my misses yesterday told me that I wasn’t nailing the optimal one on every swing), because everything starts from there.
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?”
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.
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.
