Golf Digest Pays Lip Service To the Greats

The Modern Golf Swing industry (and Golf Digest’s Alex Meyers) are whom I’m referencing here, of course – they always pay lip service to the greats of the Classic Golf Swing era while completely ignoring what made them greats to begin with.

Before I get to the Golf Digest laugher, what made them great? The way they swung, either in the game or how they taught it, and Harvey Penick is one, in his first Little Red Book on the swing.

Long Drive Swing – Wow! (Day One)

Ok, I have to say that getting out the long drive clubs yesterday, I didn’t expect much, as I haven’t really swung them since the late summer/autumn of 2015.

However, I wanted to see if my new adjusted setup and swing visuals that I’ve developed over the winter with the SwingRite would do for the long drive swing what it did for my regular golf swing.

The Final Step – Part Two! (Long Drive)

OK, so I said the other day that I had found my optimal setup and mechanical action for the golf swing.

Well, that’s correct, but I omitted something – I am going to do the same thing with my long drive swing, because – you guessed it – the long drive swing is slightly different from the regular driver swing that you use for playing golf.

DJ’s 1st Swing Clip For 2017! 3 Angles

I have compiled a video clip here, showing what are finally fit-for-video swings with my updated MCS Golf Swing with the dominant “pull” action reduced and with the proper “push” action.

I was able to break down and reassemble my swing so quickly this spring (using the “3 Pillars,” formerly “Dropping The Hammer” concept) because I’ve always had the components, but I needed to really nail down the adjusted address position to accommodate my spinal deformity, and I think you’ll all agree that I finally got there.

June 18th 2005 – April 19, 2017 – The Day I’ve Been Awaiting

I dug my golf clubs out of the closet on a Saturday back in 2005, after watching some of the 3rd round of the U.S. Open (won that year by Michael Campbell of New Zealand), and when I got home from the range, I remarked to my wife that I was going to “figure this out, once and for all…

Those of you who have been reading my blogging on the golf swing (I first began posting back in the late summer of 2007, about two years after that) will know that I had dumped those clubs into the closet, where they’d gathered dust for years, out of frustration with the golf swing.

Tiger Woods’ Story In This Golf Magazine Piece

I found the below article posted on Golf.com, and it’s ironic that my comment exchange with HarleyWeedWhacks only yesterday touched on this precise issue.

The piece deals with golfers tending to reverse-pivot on the back swing as they get older, due to loss of flexibility, especially in the lower body, and how not to fall victim to it.

Here’s Something Silly…

Let me run something past everyone, because I can’t wrap my brain around the logic of what Modern Golf Swing proponents are always saying.

I’m talking about the restricting of the hip turn in the back swing by keep that leading heel firmly planted on the back swing, all to promote more stability and therefore consistency in the golf swing.

Checking In On Bryson DeChambeau (It Isn’t The Putting)

You’ve probably seen a lot more of Bryson DeChambeau in ads and features than you have on the leaderboard since he turned pro, and the prevailing sentiment has been that his problems have to do with putting.

I disagree, and just want to throw some names and numbers up to illustrate why I do – his putting is terrible, yes, but likely stems from his other problems.

Another Wax Nation Citizen Drops In

All the way from California, another Wax Nation citizen (whom you’ve probably seen before in the comments section)¬†was travelling and in the area, and took the time to stop in for a visit and a little consult on his swing today.

Fortunately, the weather turned out to be awesome, much warmer than forecast, and a brilliantly sunny morning set things off perfectly.
