If basketball players are to “Be Like Mike,” (Remember those ads? how old do you feel now?), then I can’t imagine why the resounding refrain from golf instructors isn’t, “Be Like Jack…”
I really don’t.
If you study the address positions and swing mechanics of the best swingers ever, they will all lead you to the same place – the way Jack Nicklaus, Sam Snead and Ben Hogan did it, essentially.
There are no two exact same swings, but the closer you get to the optimal model, the better you will swing.
You won’t see many bad swingers who address the ball the way Nicklaus did.
But you’ll find some great swingers who did it the same.
And here below, is Jack Nicklaus’ address position face-on, beside mine, BT’s and our young MCS trainee KT:
So, when you argue with MCS swing theory, you’re not really arguing with me.
I have simply built a golf swing model that takes the best of the greatest swingers in golf history and standardized it, meaning I have taken out the idiosyncrasies of those swingers.
So, when I say that an address position isn’t sound, or that something is going on in the swing that is unsound, you’re not just arguing with me.
You’re arguing with the G.O.A.T.
