A note to the Wax Nation Members…I’ve posted the first of the Ultimate MCS Series on the Stance over at DJ’s Watering Hole. The next couple of weeks will deal with the various aspects.
I have put the Wax Golf “Ben Hogan Project” on sale for the Holiday Season. After the great reviews and feedback on the video itself, this is my effort to make sure that anyone who hasn’t yet watched it, can do it this Christmas season.
If you’ve not read the feedback I’ve received, and/or you’re a Ben Hogan fan or interested in any way to know what he was doing, and why no one has been able to explain his mechanics accurately ’til now, you’ll have a great video to watch to take out the year.
Remember when I said that the Ultimate MCS was a combination of the Ben Hogan-style “floating pivot” with the “throw release” action of Mike Austin?
I obtained some video today of some swings with my adjusted visual, and this is the swing, my friends, that I’ve been looking to uncover in the ten years of my swing research.
These swings below are the first day hitting balls with the adjusted visual, and this time, I got it.
There are so many visual references to a mechanically-correct golf swing, and yet they all describe the same action.
The true challenge of the golf swing, you see, is making it the same motion that all other motions of the same sort consist of.
What has happened with the golf swing is that the brain short-circuits with all of the faulty and ridiculous stance, grip and swing model information with with it is inundated from the first lesson.
I’ve been to the Dome to hit some balls three times now since the outdoor season ended, and I’m closing in on my visual since I made the transition from the visual of a left-side-pull swing that has had me essentially swinging with one arm (the left one) for a good deal of my research years.
I suppose I can blame Moe Norman for that, although if you listen to anyone talk about the swing, even the best ball-strikers ever, you’ll do so at your own peril, as many of the greatest swingers had no clue exactly what they were doing, just to keep doing it that way.
That’s what I did. I wasn’t “getting” my perfect swing image to translate into actual performance, and then I inadvertently changed my visual a few weeks ago, and things began to fall into place.
It’s a great December Saturday, and of course I’m back at home with my weekly Shark & Bake lunch, ready to enjoy.
