This is it, my friends – if you are still hungry for additional MCS Swing Theory material, I have laid out everything from my initial ten years of swing research in the previous MCS videos, culminating in the MCS Trilogy (“Ultimate Leverage,” “Kinesiology” & Perfect Pivot) series.
I have said that I will be transitioning to putting MCS into the public sphere and putting the MCS Golf Swingtheory principles on Amazon, but before I do, I want to finish it off here on the blog with the upcoming and final “MCS – Beyond Perfect Pivot” video project.
David Leadbetter is keeping it classy following his discarding by Lydia Ko, putting all of the blame on her 2016 drop-off in performance (of course, it couldn’t be the A-Swing garbage he forced on her last year) on – get this – her parents.
I was looking through some archived clips from my swing research years, and I ran across a startling series of swings from April of 2013.
2013 is the year I will always view, for whatever reason, as the year my swing research really began to pay dividends – I even told targettom in an email exchange that I don’t consider myself having made any meaningful breakthroughs in swing theory until that year.
You’ll likely remember the frustration with which I posted this piece last week when I read something Tiger Woods had said before his return to playing tournament golf.
Even now, I realized, he still didn’t get it (although he is swinging with more hip action, but it’s still not what you’d call “free”), and he and most PGA Tour players are still trying to swing using their core and back, which is the death move of modern golf swing theory.
… is that it’s close to his old swing, the one he had as an amateur and when he turned pro, at least from the stance-wise point of view.
More erect, not as biased to the left or center, and more or less just standing naturally, and the irony is that, to be able to still play golf and to save his back… he had to go back to where he was when he decided his swing wasn’t good enough.
If you have watched televised golf and wondered why, even though you follow all of the swing analysis it offers, you can’t learn a proper golf swing, then you can stop wondering, especially if you think it’s something with you.
Trust me – it isn’t.
There is simply no analysis going on with these televised shows, in fact they’d serve everyone better if they didn’t offer an analysis, because it’s just awful.
If you’ve been looking at Tiger Woods’ swing with any objectivity, there are some positive improvements – and I mean real improvements, as the Golf Channel announcers are basing everything strictly on shot result, which is not analysis at all.
I’ve said before that I don’t really put much stock, good or bad, in how TW scores this week, although a good score is a good score. My focus has been on watching his swing and seeing if he’s changed anything (yes) and if he’s still doing anything in a bad way (also yes, with the rubber-banding, but he’s never going to change that).
Yes, of course, I will be watching Tiger Woods’return to competitive golf, as I’m sure just about everyone else who is interested in golf will be.
I can’t make any predictions, because other than the usual hype and blather, we don’t know anything about how Tiger is swinging, so we’ll have to wait and see.
So, we’ve got Tiger teeing off at 12:00 noon, with television coverage on The Golf Channel beginning at 1:00 pm EST – but don’t expect them not to show his 1st hole tee shot live, as they always seem to manage when coverage hasn’t yet begun.
Lest anyone think that I am claiming with my “MCS” model, I have discovered the only way to swing a golf club or anything like what you here from the golf swing gurus about “their” own swing models.
If a swing is mechanically-sound or correct, then of course you will see certain things in it – for example, you need a free and full hip turn without any attempt to restrict it, for a swing to be mechanically-correct.
