All the way from California, another Wax Nation citizen (whom you’ve probably seen before in the comments section) was travelling and in the area, and took the time to stop in for a visit and a little consult on his swing today.
Fortunately, the weather turned out to be awesome, much warmer than forecast, and a brilliantly sunny morning set things off perfectly.
I have to say that Starr’s comment last November was not a fairy tale:
The truth is I don’t practice near as much anymore. I just go play. I often go to the first tee on Saturdays, not even warming up on the range, and stripe my driver 275 down the middle.
I saw for myself how well his MCS swing works for him, and he was hitting the ball pretty solidly before we even talked about anything, but when we worked on a few things in the pivot and the down swing, he (a natural “pulling” swinger) was cracking my driver with a little draw when we were finished.
We also discussed the down swing move, and being a “pulling” swinger, he was very pleased to get the visual of the “drop & pop” in a face-to-face demonstration, and his down swing improved that quickly – here’s a swing gif. where I slowed down the practice down swing “drop & pop” portion:
I know Starr has followed my blogging on the golf swing for a long time, possibly even back in the Smash Golf blog days (’08-’11), certainly in the DJ Watts Golf blog days (’11-’13), as he mentioned today.
Watch the pop at the bottom!
It was a delight meeting another citizen of the Nation, and especially one who pleased me with the MCS swing he brought with him. The highest compliment – he said it was all based on my videos and blogging, from top to bottom!
And of course, the requisite selfie!
Thanks for dropping by, Starr, and I look forward to our next meeting sometime in the future!
A great weekend wish for all of Wax Nation!
