The 3 “Stability Factors” In MCS…

addr-imp3I 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.

Modern Golf – Focused On The Wrong Things (Spine Angle?)

addr-impVolume 372 of “Modern Swing Fallacies…”

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.

Why MY Center-Biased Swing Didn’t Kill Me (Video)

drv seq 2009Here is a clip of two swings from the golf course back in September of 2009.

I had decided that summer to focus on the playing aspect of the swing rather than just the swing model motion, so I didn’t do any range work whatsoever that year.

“I’ll Never Fix My Swing…”

trey bYou’ve heard it a million times, might have even said it a million times, “I can’t swing any better than this, I’ll never fix my swing…”

And you’d be DEAD WRONG, because the only thing that needs to change in your swing is how you use the 6″ or 15 cm between your ears.
