I have some personal matters arise which require attending-to this morning, so I thought I’d dash this quick post off before doing so, and when I return home in the afternoon, it’ll be back to work on the video, which is now nearly complete.
Touch and go and day to day! But before I head out, here’s my thought on MD.
Just listen to Peter Kostis’ unbelievable analysis of Patrick Rodgers’golf swing this weekend at the Farmers Insurance Openat Torrey Pines.
You won’t believe it, but then again, Kostis is no longer even trying to be objective in his swing analyses on television, and I’ll prove it to you below, because this has to be actually seen to be believed.
I’ve said before that the basic model for the MCS “floating pivot” swing hasn’t changed and won’t change, and that has been the case since the first video of the new MCS model and the “MCS – Ultimate Leverage“ video back in January of 2015.
What has changed is the manner in which I present the model, with different themes, concepts and drills to aid one in learning and practicing various things such as the stance, the pivot, or the entire swing from address to finish.
If you want any proof at all how damaging and dangerous the Modern Golf Swing is, you can probably find it yourself simply be looking at the region where most back injuries appear to be occurring in these modern players.
Tiger Woods, Nick Watney, Jason Day – you can go on and on with the list of golfers suffering from lower back pain and injuries, and yet, how does a guy (like yours truly) get up day after day with an aching lower back (from a deformity – scoliosis – and not an injury) with no problem in swinging a golf club?
I don’t know exactly when it was that I realized how invaluable the “Dropping The Hammer” concept would be when I was developing it, but I knew that it was going to be gold when I figured out that it solves the problem of “pushing” vs “pulling” the golf swing.
It’s been a busier month than I could have imagined when we rang in the New Year, but I’ve managed to make enough headway on the upcoming video that the end is in sight!
The major problem (if one was going to have one, this is it) has been trying to winnow down four hours of swing work that I recorded with David D. over the last few weeks of the ’16 summer season, as well as some video short clips that he had recorded on his own smart-phone – there was so much material that ended up on the cutting room floor.
