Monte - Not saying you're wrong or anything, just the raw data here. Reason my AoA is 4 up is because I play ball off front foot. Reason I play it off front foot is because that's where I've found it easiest to have the ball to allow for square face at impact. If I move it back to help lower launch, results in pushy fades. Resolution to that is (as a lefty) open my stance a touch, aim more right, play a fade. Just not as comfortable doing that, but it's a possibility.
This is one of the things I can hopefully work on during your clinic this summer. Driver has been the bane of my existence lately.
The most up AOA resulted in the biggest miss left, 3x as off line as the one that was the most level. You also hit the ball further with the highest launch but also the highest spin. You could achieve the same result by adding loft to the driver and not hitting up more. All you did was increase your dynamic loft. If you made the bottom swing with a higher lofted driver youíd hit it further and straighter.
No info on strike location so I can't really comment. I'm not knowledgeable enough to say how AoA and strike location (as in, how AoA influences strike location horizontally or vertically) affect one another. Just by inspection I could assume that the higher my AoA is the more (or less) likely I am to hit it with more variation vertically, but the first strike could have gone off line because of it being slightly out of the heel.
Both of the higher attack angles went way more offline. And again your lowest spin was actually the most level AOA. The ball you spun the most went the furthest. Your dynamic loft increased by more than your AOA increased, so you spin loft went up which is what caused it to go further.
This could be accomplished by increasing driver loft, you increased dynamic loft increasing both launch angle and spin rate. It wasnít gear affect or the higher launch would have spun less not more. You need more loft, which you got by hitting more up on it, but you can accomplish the same effect by changing the club rather than swing while also hitting it straighter
It went more offline because the face to path difference increased, not because of gear effect or contact
