The name of the game with the golf swing is consistency. It doesn’t matter how far you can hit a ball, nor even how accurately you can hit a ball, if you can’t do it consistency.
In golf, you score when you put the ball where you want it for the next shot, more or less – and when you don’t put that ball where you want it, bad things are likely to happen – or at least things will happen that aren’t optimal.
So, I would like you to look at this “swing bottom” compilation of four different clubs, with actual swings, where I hit the ball exactly where I wanted to.
Note November 14, 2016: Remember that for most of the clubs (excluding driver), the swing bottom is not the same as where impact occurs.
In the first three pics above, the ball has already been struck prior to the swing bottom, and with the fourth pic, the ball is being struck at the swing bottom.
This is why you swing through the swing bottom and at the ball – you would have to time impact for 13 clubs if you tried to swing for the ball – you just swing down and through…
See a pattern here? Of course you do, it’s staring you right in the face, isn’t it? Virtually the same “bottom” from wedge to Driver with the MCS swing, at the swing bottom.
That comes from, of course – the standard MCS address position, coupled with the MCS mechanical action, brings you to the swing bottom in a consistent and mechanically-sound position.
When you have a consistent swing bottom, then all you’re doing is adjusting ball position for the particular club in question, and off you go.
So, modern or classic, the same rule applies with MCS swing theory – a consistent address position with the proper mechanical action will produce a consistent swing bottom, whatever the club at hand, and will great improve your ball-striking stats.
And that’s how you get results like this:
It’s also how you do this:

I’m just a swing analyst and researcher, so if I, a 46 year old man who doesn’t work out or even do more than hit balls two-three times per week at most, without hurting myself… imagine what a player could do with that consistency, power and accuracy.
