The Iron Byron Drill – Right Side

iron byron screen capOK, I’ve been looking at how best to demonstrate the right arm and hand release action, and of course the best possible mechanical action is that of the Iron Byron.

It’s a very basic premise that involves the “Line of Scrimmage” concept from the “Kinesiology of the MCS Golf Swing” video and we can look at both left and right sides.

Henrik Stenson – Learn How To Hit Your Driver

steele impactIf you’re wondering why anyone is even close to Henrik Stenson this weekend, it’s because he can’t hit his driver and that really worked against him yesterday.

The course in Atlanta for this week’s Tour Championship at East Lake is drenched, and they played lift-clean-place yesterday.

Origin of the Modern Golf Swing “Restricted Hips?”

gatetogolfBT sent me this great find yesterday, and it left me wondering.  The link he sent me was to a book the he found listed on GoogleBooks.

While I won’t buy the book by James Douglas Edgar, a British golfer and writer (1884-1921) nor recommend it (I don’t have a problem with my hips, so I’m not curious), I wonder if this book had anything to do with the development of the modern style “restricted hip” golf swing.

Henry Cotton’s Swing Visuals… Hmmm!

henry cottonIf you don’t know who Henry Cotton was, don’t worry.

But look him up if you doubt his golfing prowess.

Jim from DJ’s Watering Hole found this golden nugget and I have to say, the first thing Cotton says in the clip up to 0:15 seconds of the clip, is exactly what I’ve been saying for years.

Just A Few Readers’ Views on “Kinesiology”

mallet wall drillIt’s been less than four full days since the “Kinesiology of the MCS Golf Swing was released for downloading and to those who pre-ordered the video, but some feedback has already begun to arrive.

Needless to say, I am always very excited when a video release occurs, but there is always that nail-biting time when one wonders what the people watching the video are thinking, and that takes a while… sometimes feels like eternity.

Getting More “Push” To The “Pull” – Leverage & Power

dj imp ldIf you think of the “pulling” part of a hybrid “Push/Pull” down swing, that’s the part that leverages the initial part of that down swing.

The second part, the “push” part, is what adds the power to the leverage.  Granted, there’s plenty of power in a leveraged “pulling” motion, just as there is in the “pushing” or “throwing” part, but it’s the dual nature of using both at the same time that gives the hybrid motion its superior power.

Wax Nation – Remember This Video? (Push/Pull)

sgt crhis burrellIf you remember this video about which I posted last month, Peter Kostis was attempting to teach someone how to “push” and “pull” the golf swing.

If you’re now watching the “Kinesiology of the MCS Golf Swing,” you’ll see a lot of what he’s talking about with regards to that action.

Another Ben Hogan Secret

mcs addrThe most difficult part of making the “Kinesiology of the MCS Golf Swing” video has been a matter of, where to start, and how to go about it.

So many things that I’ve covered in ten years of swing research and eight years of blogging, I actually had a writer’s block of sorts on what to begin with and how to get through the material.
