MCS Model Should = Neutral Plane (Why That’s Good)

I took a look at my latest, nearly-there swings right arm only, and again I was struck by how amazingly neutral my swing plane is using the MCS Golf Swing model.

There are of course three types of swing planes – neutral or on-plane, steep and flat, with the neutral one of course being the preferable one, and I’ll tell you why I believe that is so.

Right Arm Dominant Action & Power

I want to show everyone who is right-dominant or not, how effective and powerful it is when you maximize the right arm action in the down swing.

I haven’t yet got out to see if I can complete that last step of my personal swing journey, where I just last week managed to isolate the purely right arm action of the pivot and swing, to the full-body yet right-dominant action.

Here Are All My Steps To MCS My Swing, With Only 1 Remaining (Updated)

** Major Correction Update: I referenced my club path impact going from out-to-in to just 1 degree off neutral. I wrote in the original posting that it was still out-to-in, which was a major typo, as I should have said it was now in-to-out.

The correction has been made in the Checks list of things I fixed.  /update

Almost.There.

Xtreme Leverage Pt II – Driver

Not much to say today as I pretty much laid it out in yesterday’s posting, so here is the Driver swing shown from the same two angles.

This is as extreme as I can go, swinging with the right arm and hand only with the hips & legs, but in doing so, I also proved that the swing is indeed a whole-boy motion.

Xtreme Leverage – Never So Much Power With So Little Effort

I’ve told you all about the challenges of swinging right-handed while being left-handed, the biggest one for me being the ability to swing with a right-dominant motion.

Today was an auspicious day for me, as I finally got a years-long flaw in my setup fixed this week, and right after that – bang – I was able to make right-dominant swings.

The Search For The Swing… Why MCS Is So Effective

Note: I’ll begin this post with some general musing about models and technique, but the main point of this writing will be halfway down, after “The Point About MCS.”

As you all know, I’ve been obsessed with finding what I would call the “optimal” golf swing model for nearly 15 years now.

Gee… The Classic Golf Swing Is “Genius??” Phil Mickelson/Golf Digest

While it’s nice to think that the Classic Golf Swing is genius, it’s simply the proper way to swing a golf club.

However, if Phil Mickelson is a genius for swinging that way, then maybe all of you MCS Golf Swing followers owe yourselves a round of applause!

Found My Leverage Leak – This Could Be Big (For Me)

I’ve said over and over again that I created and developed the MCS Golf Swing model as an optimal athletic swing motion, not something personally for myself, and that I have lagged behind the model in my personal execution.

As pleased as I’ve been with my progress in adopting the model’s principles, it seems I have had a huge leverage leak in my setup that has prevented me from getting to that 100% execution of the theoretical model.
