Why I Stopped Swinging Planted-Heel

flat foot swing topI used to swing with a planted leading heel.

In fact, the first thing I remember about taking up golf and my first lessons back in 1997 during Tiger Fever (my first lesson was in the week following his Masters victory) was the whole “keep your left heel on the ground” business – it’s the modern era, don’t you know?

Rory McIlroy Ruptures Left Ankle – OUT Of The Open…

rory mcilroy kneeRory McIlroy had a not-very-good weekend.

It seems that he did it while playing some soccer (yes, fooball to Europeans, but I live in Canada and here it’s called soccer) with some buddies.

It’s not a golf injury and I’m not going to try to state that I know it’s related to his golf swing, but isn’t it strange that the injury is to his left ankle, the one that he strains and twists with that 300+ yard swing?

Technical Update – I’d Say I’m There (Swing Clips)

dj imp drI went to the range yesterday to swing for myself, meaning I wasn’t trying to emulate anyone else’s swing mechanics (say, like what I was doing the past few weeks looking at Jack Nicklaus’ swing).

I have always said (I think I’ve even had this quoted back to me) that no two people will ever look exactly alike when swinging, even when using the same golf swing model.

It’s Not All About Club Impact Speed (Angle of Attack)

launch angleI’ve always said that my club impact speed is actually lower than many if not most swingers who can drive the ball 350 yards or more on a good pop.

Now, I was able to do that years ago, and I can do it now, but now, I can do it with so much less effort, because I’ve improved my launch numbers with the MCS “Ultimate Leverage” swing model.

MCS – Stability & Mobility

stability dtlHere we go, my friends – my swing isn’t even as good as it’s going to be in a few weeks, but I’m having a hard time each time out finding anything with which to quibble.

This is the golf swing model I’ve been working towards for the last ten years, and each time I swing, it’s getting tighter and more stable, with all of the mobility and speed that I had with my looser, left-dominant swing.

You Have To See This – Mobility & Stability

2I’ve said before that you need both stability and mobility in a proper, athletic and mechanically-correct golf swing.

Well, since the work I’ve done on my own swing with the Jack Nicklaus Project, let me show you what my driver swing looks like when you look at the mobility and stability…

The Golf Swing Is The Thing – Fix Yours & You Will See…

drv camI’ve said that there are no perfect swings, but you can have a perfect swing model and then you can strive to execute that model to the best of your abilities.

The addition to the MCS “Ultimate Leverage” swing model of some pivot mechanics that I figured out watching Jack Nicklaus’ driver back swing pivot has brought my own swing to just-about-there, mechanically.
