We’re reaching the end of the outdoor golf season here in this corner of the world, which is traditionally at the end of October, but when there is good weather, places will stay open on a day-to-day basis dependent on daily forecasts.
Today may be that “last day” of the season, and I’m taking full advantage of the opportunity to shoot a little more swing videos with David D. and get in a last swing session before things come to a close.
I took this picture over a month ago on a morning walk, and the green has turned to gold or has fallen.
End of Season
I mentioned at summer’s end that I would be getting some MCS material available on Amazon, and that may include an eBook as well as a video, but I will certainly be moving forward with that now that I’ve finished the “MCS Short Game” video project.
MCS Short Game Now Available!
On that note, thanks to everyone for their feedback, and when I sent the finished product to David D. to review (he was present during a portion of the shooting, as those with the video will have seen already), he was very complimentary:
I watched it last night. MCS Short Game is a model of clarity which explains the short game in a manner unlike other videos. Watching it will enable the viewer to easily understand how to chip, pitch and putt.
I should have known, as the cynic in me will live forever, but I found that Cobra is releasing the new set of Dechambeau “same length irons” onto the market.
That would explain B.D. playing in (but not the withdrawal from) a Japanese Tour event last week (The Bridgestone Open) as well, as he is signed to both Cobra and Bridgestone.
So, despite the fact that B.D. has done absolutely nothing on Tour besides a Top-4 finish in his pro debut nearly seven months ago (and has missed more cuts than he’s made as a pro) – there is equipment to be sold and hype to be established!
But I may be just a tad too cynical… you decide…
What Would You Say Was The “Wow Moment” For MCS, DJ?
Well, thanks for asking, although you didn’t – I would say that there were two “Wow” moments in my swing theory research that ultimately led to the final model theory:
- The first was when I realized that the shifting head of the model I was studying and trying to replicate from 2009-12 was not going to work in a proper, mechanically-sound swing action, because a moving head destroys consistency and accuracy, and I changed the center-biased address position to the right-biased position you see now, in the spring of 2013:
- The second big “Wow” moment was when I studied Ben Hogan’s “floating pivot” action (the pivot action that gives you a full turn with a stable head on both the back swing and down swing) and realized that it was truly a “perfect pivot,” and combined with the right-biased address position and the MCS address concepts, the MCS “Perfect Pivot” swing model was realized.
And with that, it’s a beautiful sunny morning here, so I’m making a little brunch before I head out to the range for an assumed-to-be last outdoor session for 2016 – if there are any other days before the end, it will be a big bonus.
Happy Wednesday to all!
