When Blake’s father Trey asked me if I’d consider consulting with them on Blake’s golf swing, the concern was what usually afflicts high-level golfers…that being the “big miss” which comes out of nowhere and which can completely wreck a hole or even a round.
We were trying the first couple of days to get the standard MCS setup and mechanics nailed down when I made a comment to Trey that led to a shocking discovery about both he and Blake – they each have a right arm longer than their left!
The source of Blake’s big miss left was instantly identified, and we mulled over how to adjust the Standard MCS model for him.
Blake & DJ @ Rancho California
We talked it over and headed to The Golf Club at Rancho California, where he teed it up cold on the 1st tee and promptly crushed a drive exactly as we mapped out.
It didn’t take more than 1 or 2 swings before we were grinning at each other – the adjustment worked, and long before the end of 18 holes, we knew that his big miss is history.
Highlights? How about a crushed 369 drive into the wind with trouble left on Hole 5 (I have that swing on video which I will share shortly)?
Or his 4 iron to within 20′ on the 230 yard par 3 seventh hole? He hit two more balls on that hole…on the green with all 3.
The entire practice round was a highlight reel, nearly.
He already has a sparkling short game so…
You can imagine how eager he is to work on his game over the coming summer in preparation for his sophomore year at McNeese State.
Did I mention Blake stands about 5’10” and tops the scales at about 140 lbs after a big meal?
Natural speed, and now he’s adding MCS leverage to his athletic abilities…a great combo, I would submit to you, Wax Nation.
We have 3 more days to really get him set, then a round of golf at Torrey Pines South (where Tiger Woods won his 3rd US Open and last major in ’08), before I return home.
Then, we will see how things go in the coming season.
Great work, Blake!!
