Past Posts Removed & The MCS Videos Are No More – Time To Update

video emcsI want to thank everyone who supported the blog & the MCS cause with your visits, comments & download purchases for the MCS Classic Golf Swing video series.

I will be spending the winter ahead of posting new material on the upcoming MCS Golf Swing Model (The “MCS Post-Modern Golf Swing” model) by reviewing the old material.

One Of My Favourite Swing Clips (2018)

Shot on July 20th, 2018 – I’d give this swing a C+ grade, as I have since fixed the grip (it wasn’t standard neutral here) and of course I’ve done yeoman’s work in optimizing my stance, back pivot and downswing.

I was chagrined at the time that I was only able to shoot video that day at 30 fps – my up-to-400 fps camera had broken and I hadn’t yet sprung for an iPhone to make the need of a camera obsolete going forward.

Musings: The “One Major Move” Still Applies To The New Model

If you are in the optimal address position before initiating the backswing pivot, there’s not much that can go wrong, but one must be wary of not performing the optimal mechanical move, since (if you’re going to this trouble) you want an optimal swing.

George Knudson – A Model of MCS

I’d like to thank M.L. for emailing me the link to the George Knudson swing highlights that I’ve never seen before.

The quality is amazing and I immediately could see so much more clearly just how MCS his swing was.

Moe Norman Had A “Machine” Model

It doesn’t matter that the swing action most people associate with Moe Norman is the quirky, arm-out half-swing from his later years.

He had a more traditional-looking swing when he made his name in the game of golf, winning 2 Canadian Amateur titles which then earned him a berth at the Masters two years running in the 1950s.

My Left Hip Pt II – Searching Maximum Leverage

Continuing yesterday’s post, I realized yesterday while doing my swing work that my lower left back and back hip area muscles were sore this week in a way I’ve not experienced before.

I thought it was just muscles realigning and being forced to work differently because I was wearing my therapeutic S.I. Belt which was stabilizing my loose left sacroiliac joint, thereby easing load from and transferring load to muscles that had become accustomed to the joint instability.

My Left Hip Is Killing Me – Why That’s A Good Thing

It’s all about leverage and the change I made to my setup a few days ago.

I’ll start by talking about something that seems to be completely random and having nothing to do with the golf swing modeling – I began to experience pain in my left sacroiliac joint a few years ago.

Why I Didn’t Want To Discuss The New Swing Model – Work In Progress

I wrote last month about not wanting to discuss the swing model I’ve been building since last summer because I didn’t have everything I wanted and needed completed in order to talk specifics.

Turns out, I was correct not to do so.  Something has changed, as recently as yesterday!

The Proper Release In The Golf Swing

Many people are not actually aware of what a proper “release” is in a mechanically-proper golf swing.

You can blame modern instruction and television analysts.

Most of those people are stuck in the visual of the “hold-off” release where the arms and hands continue to move as if to “push” the club through impact and to throw the club “at the target.”
