I said yesterday that MCS is the manner of swinging a golf club the way your body is designed to move and not according to bizarre positional theories advanced by the past couple decades’ worth of “modern golf swing” instructors and gurus.
And here is the way to describe how any MCS or mechanically-correct swing should work, whether it’s a swing based on my model or not.
I have a lot of issues with the “modern golf swing” school of thought, not the least of which is the way it has damaged countless young swingers’ lower backs, limbs and joints with the restricted hip back swing and torso twisting.
The other thing that annoys me with modern golf is the obsession on things that don’t matter, and how these obsessions trickle over to students trying to learn a swing.
So I made a swing change about three weeks into my winter break, having had three weeks since the outdoor season ended to think about the work I’ve done this year.
Part of my personal journey in search of my ultimate swing action has been the struggle with how I swung the club with a lot of leading side leverage, having played baseball in my youth (as well as having swung axes and sledgehammers).
