MCS Swingers’ Reminder – Stance vs Ball Position

Ball-position-NicklausSomething that I see swingers struggle with on the basics of the MCS swing theory and models – the stance doesn’t change from the “Leaning A” position except stance width, and it is the ball position that changes, just as Jack Nicklaus shows in the below picture.

To illustrate how easy it is to swing with any club using the MCS stance, I went through it again with David D. on the weekend while we were mining MCS gold, and it becomes second nature, provided you accept the principles and work on making them “feel” natural.

If you aren’t there, you need to get there…

Here is Jack Nicklaus With the “Leaning A” Setup:


If you go back to the MCS videos, especially the “Kinesiology of the MCS Golf Swing” and the “MCS – Perfect Pivot” videos, I mention the importance of where the hands are positioned with the stance.

Look at Nicklaus above and look at me in the video below, and remember the location I mention in the videos…

Here is DJ With the Same setup:


My comment to David D., when he would hit some wonky balls while working on a swing adjustment, was that most swingers will never make permanent and meaningful change to their swings unless they stick with it and keep swinging from the proper positions until the feel of it becomes natural.

Most people hit one or two shaky balls and then say, “It was better the old way…”

No, it wasn’t.  It just felt better than it does now, so you have to persevere – and here is how simple it can get when you are where you need to be:

Easy MCS

Throw in the Ben Hogan-inspired “Perfect Pivot” action from that “Leaning A” position, and you will of course get the best of both worlds of Nicklaus and Hogan… but that’s MCS!
