“Dropping The Hammer” Was It – For High To Low Hdcps

mcs-dropping-the-hammerI’ve been a little taken aback by the enthusiasm for the “MCS – Dropping The Hammer” video, and for a surprising reason – it was what was apparently missing from the MCS video series in taking a look at how the average person would implement the mechanically-sound principles in the MCS swing theory.

I was very enthused about presenting the new swing concept “Dropping The Hammer,” which has been the original purpose of this video back when I was going to call it “Beyond Perfect Pivot.”


And while the new concept has been very well received, it was the work I did with David D. in this latest video that got the most comment in the feedback that I’ve received to date.

To whit, from an early review:

Because of David D. Yes, because here you have a 73 year old, still learning, still open to everything you were teaching him. And absolutely no offence to Jerry Crowell, David Kondo and a couple of others… they are scratch golfers, 3 handicap types, etc, etc.

It is hard for me at times (and I have watched all of your vids over and over) to identify with BT smacking them a mile or so (not you though, enjoy seeing you do it as you are the instructor, funny as that may sound). But with David D, I could identify with times when he was frustrated or he knew right away he had moved his head or did not stay right biased, or whatever.

Funny enough, it was David D. himself who pitched me the idea of shooting our work together at summer’s end, and he said nearly the same thing – it might be very instructive to watch how MCS is taught and shown to an average golfer and not one who is a pro or college player, or a scratch-level amateur.


So, he was right on the mark, and if any of you have the “Kinesiology of the MCS Golf Swing” or the “MCS – Perfect Pivot” videos and are struggling to figure out what you’re not doing correctly with the MCS swing principles – that is exactly what David D. and I worked on in this video.

So, this video is not just for those who want to know how the power swinger “drops the hammer” on a ball for long driving or powerful iron shots – it seems to be just what the doctor ordered when it comes to higher handicap players than those in the scratch or low single digit players.

    Since watching the new videos and doing the hammer drill, I’ve been really compressing the ball wonderfully with my irons. I’ve added the hammer drill and doing freezers at the top- then dropping the hammer. Swing is nicely shallowing when I’m sequencing well.

    I don’t know if it’s my new M2 driver with prototype Kuro Kate, But I hit every fairway yesterday afternoon on my drives – 9 out of 9! And each drive overall distance measured with my golfshot app over 268. I know that is not long ball distance- but for me with a slowish tempo and wet muddy grass- I’ll take it! This is new territory for me DJ!

    Thank you for researching and giving us the goods to have fun at this game. For me this a just a hobby, but I can really start to have fun with golf knowing my ball is straight straight straight. Not one slice yesterday baby!

    Thank you DJ

      You’re most welcome, Lance – and now you know why David D. was so excited that he pulled out his phone during the shooting to record it for himself while I went through it…lol…

      Very welcome DB! It won’t take long to get used to, but as you heard me tell David D. in the video – swing changes will feel awkward, or they wouldn’t be changing anything, and you just have to persevere until it feels normal again, which it will.

      Keep hammering! 😀

    Getting good results on impact with the hammer concept, DJ. I loved the part on Dunaway’s down swing, been trying to figure that out forever. Good work!

      Thanks JC! Good to know the concept is working as well for you all as it did for me 🙂
