forbesYou can check out Forbes Magazine online and read an article by contributor Larry Omsted, who asks that pertinent question:

Is Brandel Chamblee’s “The Anatomy of Greatness” the most important golf book in our generation?

The answer, simply, is “Yes.”

The Genius Of The Hogan Pivot & How To “MCS” It

pivot - screen capHKGolf asked a question yesterday about shifting weight in the pivot, and I told him that I prefer Ben Hogan’s pivot out of all of the greats of the Classic Golf Swing era because you can create a “floating pivot” with it.

When I say “floating pivot,” I mean the concept of a back swing pivot that allows the swinger to remain in place even while pivoting.

It’s About Change – And Brandel Chamblee Is The Agent

chamblee book3If you have been wondering why I’ve been pushing so hard on Brandel Chamblee’s book “The Anatomy of Greatness,” then you obviously haven’t read it yet – because once you do, you’ll understand why.

This has never been about my trying to carve out a niche in the game of golf, or to earn a living teaching the golf swing – it has been my focus on changing the golf swing back to the proper fundamentals of the Classic Golf Swing era.

Post-Release Analysis – Brandel Chamblee’s “Anatomy”

chamblee book coverOK, now that people have had their first glance at Brandel Chamblee’s excellent work “The Anatomy of Greatness,” we can continue to examine it.

I didn’t do so before, because no one would have known what I was talking about, since I got to read it weeks in advance of the release (thanks, Brian Lewis from Classics of Golf!).

Blast From The Past! (New MCS Swing Model ’13)

dj imp new mcsI was sent a Youtube link by one of my Wax Golf readers (thanks Benoit, what a nostalgic feeling I had, watching this!), from my own account, mind you – and here is the proof of what Brandel Chamblee’s book “The Anatomy of Greatness” asserts…

This swing model of mine, developed in 2013 and my first independent swing model (all previous models had been developed studying another person’s swing theory), is the same in principle as my current and last swing model.

Chamblee’s “Anatomy” At #2 On Amazon Golf Books List

chamblee book coverBrandel Chamblee’s “The Anatomy of Greatness” is currently #2 on the Golf Books Bestseller listings.

Taking the #1 spot is Harvey Penick’s “Little Red Book,” but I imagine that’s because it was being hyped all weekend on NBC’s broadcasts – so I expect “Anatomy” to reach #1 before long – and stay there for awhile…

And look – it’s one spot ahead of Ben Hogan’s “Five Lessons”!

MCS “Perfect Pivot” Video – April Release!

dj wThe pre-order option for the MCS “Perfect Pivot” video will be available until March 31, and I will be returning to Arizona at week’s end to finish off the shooting for an April release, hopefully the week after the Masters finish.

The slight delay (I was shooting for a Masters week release) came when I returned home from Arizona a few weeks back and reviewed what I had done, and of course I was dissatisfied, having been pre-occupied with the hosting of the Wax Golf Southwest Summit at the Golf Club of Estrella.

Tony Finau Nabs 1st Tour Win – Could Be A Monster

finau releaseTony Finau
, a fine young man, whom I remember from nearly ten years ago when he and his younger brother competed in a season of The Big Break, captured his first PGA Tour title yesterday.

In the opposite event to the World Match Play, Finau won on the 3rd playoff hole against winless Steve Marino to take the Puerto Rico Open.

Modern Golf Swing = No Clue (Jordan Spieth)

jordan-spieth-driver-post-impactDid anyone catch the end of round interview that Jordan Spieth gave after his loss to Ooostie today at the Dell World Match Play?

He basically told the world that he came to the range and was hitting slices with his irons and didn’t know what was going wrong.

Wall Street Journal Boards The Classic Express

journal nicklausThanks to my Twitter mate Ben S. for catching this.

If you ever think that because you subscribe to MCS swing theory, you don’t have to look at or listen to what others say about the golf swing, here’s how I look at it.

It’s a funny thing, reinforcement – how many times you hear something correct, versus hearing something incorrect, will certainly smooth the cognitive dissonance that may occur, say in golf, where a completely bogus swing theory (that of the modern swing) competes with a legitimate one (swinging along the classic golf swing principles).
