UMCS Beats Mann’s Model (And Why)

??????Simply, it’s because the Ralph Mann computer swing model is what it is, even if it is ingenious.

I said in yesterday’s posting that:

It wasn’t actually a biomechanical computer program generating a golf swing from data on how the human body moves, and I should have known, or the swing would have been exactly like the UMCS model.

Limited Time – Hogan Project/UMCS Combo

hogan projectRe-posted – Available ‘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.

The Computer Model – “No Wonder I Love Your Site.”

mann bookFirst, the nature of the post title.  It appears I’ve done something that some people find pretty impressive.

Now everyone knows I’m not the type to hype this blog or myself as the end-all and be-all of the golf swing.  I simply set out to do something ten years ago – figure out the mechanically-sound golf swing.

How Many Ways Are There To Walk?

robot walkingMy friends, it’s time for some blunt talk.  So let’s get to it.

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.

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!
