Kinesiology – When Sports & Science Intersect

bt - modelI want to you show a really neat super-imposed video clip with that computer-generated swing model that Jerry “Big Toilet” Crowell found yesterday and which I used in this week’s “Shark & Bake” posting.

I did say that the model wasn’t perfect, but that it was pretty good except for the little complaints I had about it.

Still, if you’re going to compare a golf swing with a computer-generated one that is supposed to be mechanically-correct, then you should see the following:

Shark & Bake Saturday – Computer-Generated MCS Golf Swing!

??????Jerry “Big Toilet” Crowell found this computer-generated model of a mechanically-correct golf swing.  It’s not too bad, although I don’t think it’s perfect.

Let’s take a look at this model, shall we?

Because other than my picky one or two critiques, this is a great model – in fact, it’s very close to the MCS “Ultimate Leverage” model.

A year ago, I might have called it perfect. So, what are we looking at?

Meet A Junior Wax Swinger

???????I have mentioned beginning to work with a junior golfer and Wax Member who’s currently in his freshman year and who decided he want to “MCS” his swing.

We first spoke via Skype on the Friday before I left, so it’s really only been 3 weeks, but oh, the magic of youth!

Big Toilet & DJ Swing – DTL

dj & bt dtlAnother superimposed piece here showing how even though Jerry “Big Toilet” Crowell and I have different swings with the same model, the back swings are again nearly identical.

The angles are not identical, but I found the best I could put together.   BT is hitting slightly to the right of center, where the camera was directly down my flight line.

Limited Time – Hogan Project/UMCS Combo

hogan project‘Til January 31

Just to entice those of you who haven’t yet viewed the Wax Golf “Ben Hogan Project,” I am offering a limited-time combo with it and the upcoming MCS – “Ultimate Leverage” video at a great price.

The MCS – “Ultimate Leverage video, if you haven’t ordered yours yet is getting better every day, and I can’t imagine what it would have looked like without the trip to Southern California to work with Jerry “Big Toilet” Crowell on his own swing, which is of course the UMCS model.

Here’s a Proper “Harpoon” Move

?????????????I’ve been discussing recently the difference between something that is simply mechanically-correct, versus mechanically-perfect.  I consider a “leading side” swing in golf, for example, to be mechanically-correct, but not perfect.

We are much more accurate and powerful throwing something over-hand or side-arm than we are if we throw something back-handed.  It’s just simply physical fact, and we all know that.

“Nicklaus, Hogan, Snead Didn’t Know How To Swing…”

nicklaus topThat is what I want to hear from the so-called modern swing experts.

Say it one time.  Just once.  I want to hear.

“Nicklaus, Hogan and Snead didn’t know how to swing properly.”

Nor did any of the other golfers from before 1980, apparently.  I still have yet to find out where the modern swing madness originated or began, but the only thing I have to go on is Fred Couples being the first person I can come up with.
