Those of you who have the “Kinesiology of the MCS Golf Swing,” or “MCS – Perfect Pivot,” which are Parts II & III of the “MCS Trilogy,” or even if you have the MCS Secrets of the MCS video short “On Separation,” then you’re going to nod your heads at this next revelation.
I got up this morning after having having witnessed yesterday’s train wreck with the World #1 ranked player withdrawing from the climactic event of the FedEx Cup with yet another back injury, and what I read from Jason Day’s own words yesterday nearly dropped me out of my chair.
How many times, my friends, have I told you about the dangers of the modern swing “rubber-band” twisting on the back swing, turning the upper torso against the restricted lower body, and what that does to the lower back on the down swing?
Probably a hundred postings where I mention that?
And I’ve discussed it in detail, in the above MCS videos – well, if you don’t believe me, read what Jason Day had to say about his injury, and the bold print is mine, to emphasize.
From the PGA Tour online:
Day acknowledged he wasn’t 100 percent after shooting the first-round 67. He said there were several times when he felt a sharp pain when hitting his driver.
“When I get to the top of the swing, as soon as my hips start to unfold and then there’s that little bit of separation, it just crunches down,” Day said on Thursday. “It just hurts.”
Sound familiar, friends?
DJ Talks “Separation”
If it does, it’s because you have watched the relevant parts of the above-mentioned videos, that’s exactly what I say will happen when you rubber-band the torso against the lower body on the back swing.
I don’t make these things happen through magic when I predict them – it is simple observation and logic – you see something very bad going on, and you make a prediction based on past history and logic (what is logically expected to happen when one swings in a manner that risks lower back injury?)…
And the Modern Golf Swing is about to claim another victim, and shorten another brilliant career, I’m afraid.
You remember how I said that if you didn’t know the proper way to do it, that learning about proper separation could “change your life?”
Well, how big a change would it make to J Day’s life to be able to keep playing at his current skill level without hurting his back every other event?
My favorite player, too…
