New Terminology – “Leverage Point”

leading footThere is a new concept I’m working on with regards to people losing their setup position, and it has to do with the pivot training drill I came up with a couple of days ago.

I’m testing it right now with an MCS swinger, and it seems to be working very well with maintaining the proper address setup and position, and of course with the down swing swing pivot, as that was the original reason for my coming up with the actual training device and drill.

This is a crucial thing for me, the stable leading foot – you should not be experiencing any twisting or jumping of the leading foot through impact, no matter how hard you swing.

It’s a simple matter of positioning and the mechanical sequencing from the top of the back swing – I don’t like leading foot motion on the down swing (other than the re-planting of the heel, of course).

Stable Leading Foot – Check!

If I can drive a ball 350 yards with a stable leading foot, then anyone should, on the average.

It’s a simple concept if one understands it – that’s my focus, making it “understandable” for the layperson.

More to come!

      I should say not, JC! I can’t think of anything new technically that I could put into a whole new video.

      Of the two previous videos (which I know you have), “Kinesiology of the MCS Golf Swing” lays out the way to swing with the Classic Golf Swing action of the greats (Jack Nicklaus, etc), and I even show people a way to swing with a planted heel in the Modern Golf Swing school, but in a way to avoid injury.

      In “MCS – Perfect Pivot,” you get what I would call the optimal mechanics of the optimal swing theory (MCS), in the back swing pivot using Ben Hogan’s pivot action, and the “low heel impact” leveraging sequencing for the down swing, demonstrated by the likes of Mike Dunaway.

      The only thing I can think of coming out with now or later would be the same mechanics with new explanations or concepts to aid in the learning and execution.

      But when you get Hogan’s back swing pivot and Dunaway’s down swing leveraging, I don’t see anything that would surpass this swing, mechanically.

      So… as far as a new video…

      Likely not! 😉
