If 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.
Notice as well that he talks about “pulling down too much,” which is of course impossible if you’re pulling properly and on the correct angle.
Sgt. Burrell’s issue is one of sequencing and swing angle, not that he’s pulling “too much.”
Kostis also fails to mention the harpoon down swing transition move, but as I said before when I saw this clip on TV during a tournament, I really can’t complain about much of anything Kostis says here.
Kostis Talks “Pull & Throw”
The problem is that it’s just so vague and generic – “Learn to throw the club…”
Well, how is he supposed to learn that when everyone is teaching modern golf swing theory?
Things To Watch: As Kostis talks about the right arm throwing drill, go to the “Kinesiology” video and watch the parts on the Mallet & Wall Swinging Drills:
And the “Iron Byron” Release portion of the video:
And we know from the “Kinesiology” video that “pulling” to begin a down swing from a planted-heel top position is not a good way to go about it.
This is for a hybrid swing action and not a “throwing” swing model, so Sgt Burrell needs a model switch if he has to keep his prosthetic foot planted through the back swing.
Luckily for Wax Nation, the correct way to “push” and “pull” is a simple matter of “switching sides!”
