Return of “Push-Pull” Golf Swing Theory

Drv2 July 26 (1)I wrote a post a couple of years ago about how the golf swing consists of a “Push” (the right hand and arm in a right-hander’s swing) and a “Pull” (the leading side leverage).

Now that I’ve explained a little bit of the leading side leverage, I think I’ll be able to expand more on the Push-Pull aspect of my theory on MCS motion.

When you really want to pound it long and straight (or just have a very relaxed and powerful swing with any club down to wedge), then you’ll definitely be utilizing the push-pull concept.

So, I’m currently working on the Long Drive video for early next month, but I want to tell you all that WAX Golf is really getting going when it comes to MCS and the golf swing.

I’ve found some great keys to the golf swing, and there will be no secrets.  I won’t be taking anything with me to the grave.  Everything I have, you’re going to get from WAX Golf, in the coming months.

Look at this impact position, my friends.  Can you visualize the left shoulder “pulling” up and back and the right arm “pushing” the club on the release?

Push – The action of the release in the downswing with the “Power Arm,” or the one opposite the “leading arm.”  Whichever way you swing, there’s a leading arm and what I’ll call the “power arm” from now on.

The Power Arm does little on the down swing, it’s primarily concerned with the back swing and the proper coil to the top.  The Power Arm is the active on the back swing.

On the down swing, it is largely passive (with proper technique) until the half-way down point, at which time it actives to aid the gravity drop and to “push” the club grip down from its cocked angle. This occurs naturally in sequence with a proper swing, but I’ll tell you later where it is crucial to remember the “Push” part of the swing – at Address

The Pull comes from the leading side leverage, as I’ve told you in previous postings.  The pulling of the leading shoulder from beneath the chin and up and back behind on the down swing and follow-through gives you the acceleration in the early part of the swing to allow you to smoothly add the “push” at the right moment, and you’ll see what happens.
