Getting To The Leading Foot – How The Greats Did It

I have been looking for some examples of how many of the greatest swingers to play pro golf got properly into the leading side and foot through the ball rather than hanging back, and you’ll likely be surprised by some of the names that had a “short-stop slide” at one point in their careers.

Watch Ben Hogan’s “3 To 9” Action

I have already pointed out one of the elements of Ben Hogan’s golf swing included in the MCS Golf Swing, of course – it wouldn’t be what it is without the “floating pivot” action (fully mobile hips & legs while the head remains stable, “floating in place”) that is the signature move of the model.

Greg Norman’s “3 To 9” Was Superb

Of course, Greg Norman’s phase from “3 To 9” is superb – he is widely considered to be the greatest persimmon driver of the ball eve to play tournament golf.

When you’re combining power and distance with consistency and accuracy therefore, I bet you’ll look very good through the ball – let’s take a look.

Greg Norman Describes Ben Hogan’s (And The MCS) Perfect Pivot

I found the following clip on Youtube yesterday, and I can’t believe that no one ever talks about the mechanics of the greatest driver ever on the PGA Tour in the persimmon age.

Greg Norman, when you combine distance, power and accuracy and longevity, is considered to be that man.

“3 To 9” Is The Key To The MCS Swing

If you get anything out of the MCS Golf Swing theory at all (besides the obvious, that the address position is the foundation of the swing and that the swing is driven by freely pivoting hips & legs), I would hope it is the “3 To 9” concept.

This area is so problematic for most swingers and has become even more so in the Modern Golf Swing era due to the restricted-hip back swing.

Mike Dunaway & The “Pull-Pull” Leverage Concept

First, I have had great feedback from a good many people regarding the Kettle Bell “One Exercise” from the “EMCS2 – The Follow Up” video, thanks to all.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – the “One Exercise” is a cure-all for just about any problem with the swing between back swing and finish.

Regarding Mike Dunaway’s Shoulders At Impact

Someone from Wax Nation (JS) asked some good questions in a comment on my posting about Mike Dunaway and his superb syncing of his 3 Levers.

I know that many people don’t wade into the comments on sites (which is understandable when you see the level of discourse at times in many sites’ comments sections, but a shame if you’re not following the discussions here at WAX), so I’ll just post on the subject as I think many people might wish to read the clarification.

Jack Nicklaus Describes MCS Leverage Concept In His Own Words

If you watch the following clip, you’ll hear the greatest of all time, Jack Nicklaus, pretty much nailing in his own words the concept of down swing leverage – even to the part of the hips & legs providing the power for the 1st Lever!

Speed Training – The SwingRite For The 3rd Lever

Now that I’ve come to the end of my development of the MCS Golf Swing model, I can concentrate on helping everyone hone their own version of this swing model, and today I’d like to address the 3rd Lever action.

Watch Dunaway’s “3 Levers” In Action (Plus The Right-Biased Setup)

I have loved the swing gif. of a Mike Dunaway swing for years since I made it from a video clip showing his model in motion, and here’s another reason – you can see clearly the “3 Levers” at work in his down swing.

You can watch the three separately and the reason Dunaway was so effortless in his action is because he synced them flawlessly.
