I will pin this posting to the top of the blog feed for the time being, and yes, the Wax Golf MCS Forum is launching today!
I imagine it will take some time to get fully underway, but long-time readers, Wax Nation citizens and new visitors alike, feel free to leave an initial comment or query at the forum, the link to which you’ll find above and on the side panel near the top.
I’m still at work on the upcoming “MCS Short Shots”video project, and here’s something to interest the MCS Golf Swing adherents – it’s the same thing, from the chip to full swing!
Of course there are variations in the MCS principles, just as there are with the full swing, depending on the type of shot or shape you want, and so there would be some adjustments from the full swing address position for the short game.
It looks like Rory McIlroy is finally getting some proper equipment (I mean, who really plays Nike clubs without being paid to do it?), and the results are spectacular.
I would say that, pound for pound (or kilo for kilo), Rory Mac is the longest driver by far on the PGA Tour, or at least he will be, if these numbers below carry out… and if you want to know how he’s doing it – athletic talent counts for a lot, but if you haven’t notice this, you haven’t been paying attention!
Everyone has been looking at Joe Miller’s swing, but I wanted to show Finalist runner-up Ryan Steenberg’s swing, because there’s a lot you can learn from it (if you watch any of the MCS Trilogy swing videos, you’ll learn the same things).
If you need any proof that the Modern Golf Swing is an unworkable theory that is also destroying players’ bodies and careers, look no further than the stats you get comparing numbers (actual and theoretical) between the longest swingers from the Classic Golf Swing era.
I am currently trying to acquaint myself with the new video publisher, having just lost my old and ancient computer (circa ’08 Windows Vista!), which was annoyingly slow and crashy but very comfortable with which to work.
I get this question all the time, and the only difference really, between hitting a hybrid or rescue club and a long iron is that you have to trust it.
Congratulations are in order to Joe Miller of Great Britain, who won his second World Long Drive Championship last night (first time 2010 Remax) over Ryan Steenberg, with a best drive of 423 yards to Steenberg’s final best of 412 yards.
Joe Miller is a great Champion and has awesome speed and power, along with a great floating-heel back swing pivot, as does just about every other world-class long driver. His win is well-deserved.
So the following video clips (thanks David D. for the links) are courtesy of Steve Lutton, who posted them on his Twitter feed, showing Tiger Woods making some swings at a members-only clinic on Tuesday, as per Hannah Withlam at the New York Post.
While one wonders if Steve’s membership will be affected by the video-posting, it sheds light on the state of TW’s physical issues…
… Because if he’s not able to produce any more power or speed than in these swings, the mystery is not why hewithdrew from theSafeway Open, but why he committed to play in the first place…
