Anybody else a high launching, high spinning slow swinging short hitter?
I'm after some advice/suggestions from maybe a similar swinger to myself, first a bit of background...I'm a decent Golfer, used to be a lot better, but I've always been behind everyone off similar handicaps in terms of length. I've started playing a fair amount again after having a couple of instances of quitting due to poor play, in short I kept trying to turn my big looping draw to a gentle fade, without success.
A few months ago I finally had a session on Trackman, to try and figure out what was going on at impact to see why I could never start the ball left, while I can't remember my face to target, or face to path now, I do recall I was 10 degrees up (yes 10 and yes up....I was 1 up with a 7 iron) and 10-13 from the inside. When I tried a 'fade' swing best I could do was still about 4 from the inside.
I've just bought a Mevo to help me work on some stuff, and that's showing me with a driver launching at 19-21 degrees and spin 3-4k (I don't always use the stickers). Carry will show 217-231 tops. I consider my on course length to be 250, with 8 iron going 150.
Swing speed is ~95, very smooth tempo, play a big high draw (as an aside I've also noticed that trackman and Mevo show my CHS at about 91 when I'm swinging so far from the inside, as soon as I swing more down the line, even though it feels and sounds slower the CHS recorded goes up...I noticed this as my 7 iron CHS would show ~84mph and no way it would only be 7mph slower than my driver)
Now, I'm currently using an M4, 9.2 measured set to 7.2 with the Atmos Red (stiff) I am still launching a 7.2 loft with my ~95mph CHS at ~20 degrees, which seems crazy high. The swing itself is clearly a flick at the bottom, which I feel I've developed over the years to try and maximise flight, draw and get the most out of my lack of speed.
So to the question, has anyone ever been, or seen similar, did you find any success with different shafts? I've steered clear from stiffer, lower launching lower spin shafts purely based on my lack of speed, I'm also kinda convinced that me always using a low lofted driver has led me to 'flicking' through impact. I did have a play yesterday on the Flightscope optimiser, which was showing if I brought spin and launch down my carry would go to 240+ which would be huge for me.
I am working on my swing to try and get to a lower launch, but keen to hear of any success stories, or things to steer clear of while I work on it. I've also thought about getting a 10.5 driver and hit that over winter to try and get my body to adjust to it over time to bring the flight down.
