If you aren’t following the site, you may come here and find a “Coming Soon” notice with nothing else to see. That will simply be my having had to temporarily (for a few hours) work on the site and having had to take it offline to do so.
This is something I considered doing all winter.
I’m currently working on a recap video on the MCS Classic Golf Swing model based on the “E = MCS” swing video as well as other videos that followed.
This is rather depressing – according to Justin Rose (and many others for certain), the quest to increase power & distance in golf is going to lead to shortened careers.
This is depressing to me because it means that the golf industry is still mired in the harmful mechanics of swinging in the Modern Golf Swing style, which means that it will shorten careers (Tiger Woods being Exhibit A), but also that it’s something that doesn’t have to happen. Continue reading
I haven’t taken a look at Bryson DeChambeau’s swing of late because I had put the blog on hiatus, however I wanted to share this even though I wasn’t going to be looking at golfers’ swings going forward.
This particular swing action Bryson’s however is nearly a perfect imitation of what I’ve called Ben Hogan’s “Perfect Pivot” action.
My readers who were here during 2018 will remember the numbers I worked on compiling with some trips to TGX Golf lab to show how powerful a leveraged swing could be, even at the age of 48 (which I was at the time).
Back then, I presented some driving stats which showed how a positive attack angle, optimal launch angle & spin rate could get a lot more out of a swing than one without those metrics.
I have said for awhile that the swing model presented by the Mikes Austin & Dunaway is a Classic Swing Model because of the free hip action as contrasted with the Modern Golf Swing model which uses back-breaking shoulder-turning against a restricted hip turn.
Aside from being alarmed (from an analysis point of view) that he was swinging in the 120s mph club speed at the time, I pointed out in the linked posting that he hadn’t done anything to fix the problem causing all of that back damage to begin with – his restricted-hip back swing & violent change of direction.
Not exactly the year that anyone anticipated or wanted, but it’s nearly over and the future awaits us.
For those of you who’ve been re-reading the old material & inquiring about the blog – it will return to active status in 2021, although I don’t have a hard date set for resumption.
Here’s how things stand at the moment: Continue reading
As far as loose ends:
We’ve all been inundated with the exploits of a certain golfer who has been hitting 190+ mph ball speeds on the PGA Tour after going on a weight lifting & eating regime, making some swing changes (for the better) & of course, picking up an er… helpful driver…
