MCS Golf Swing Action = “Quiet Leverage”

I slowed down three separate swings that I shot last spring when I was producing the “E = MCS” swing video, to illustrate what I have talked about regarding “quiet” action in the golf swing.

A “quiet” golf swing means exactly that, in that you aren’t jumping, lunging or diving when swinging a club.

It should be relatively easy to swing a light club weighing no more than 13 oz or roughly 369 grams, but how about a Momentus Heavy Driver, which has twice the mass of a regular driver?

Well, it should still be quiet if you apply proper mechanics and therefore optimal leverage to your swing, as shown by my swing with the Momentus Heavy Driver alongside one with a TaylorMade RBZ driver:

I wouldn’t even grade these swings of mine in the below video as an “A” (because I was only a few weeks into the changes I’d made to my own action that early in the spring, with little things I see that I have fixed or will improve upon), but even in an MCS swing action I’d rate as “B” at best, you can still the quiet aspect of the swing, especially in the transition and down swing.

From 3 angles, here is super-slo-mo (but not a Konicka-Minolta Swing Vision Biz Hub) camera footage of my swing at the time with the Momentus Heavy Driver:


Now, I’m just a swing analyst and model-builder, which means I don’t spend nearly as much time working on my own swing as I do working on analysis and other people’s mechanics, but that’s not too shabby for someone who doesn’t actually swing a club regularly, wouldn’t you say?

I mention this because, if you gave me 8-10 hours a day to work on my golf game and half of that, say, was spent on the swing – I’d do it better than what you see in the video, and yet I’m not jumping, hopping and spinning through my swings the way you see the world’s best players doing on TV.

They would easily beat me in a round of scoring golf, of course, because like I say, I don’t get to spend the time working on my game that they do, and they’re also the best in the world at what they do, which would likely mean they’d beat me anyways, but you’d think they could swing better than they do when it comes to mechanics, wouldn’t you?

Just a point I’m making, when I see the things I see on TV watching golf.

And if you get into your “One Exercise” using your Kettle Bell and follow the procedure I’ve laid out in “EMCS2 – The Follow Up” video – you can produce swings as good as or better than what I’m doing in the clip, because that’s precisely the leveraging action I’m using for the Momentus driver.

Perhaps we will see proper swinging return when the failed experiment that is the so-called “Modern Golf Swing” finally runs its course and people get back to swinging the proper and natural way, the Classic Golf Swing way.

    I find that I favor the more mechanically correct swingers on tour and don’t watch the others. Sort of limits who I watch though. Jim

      I can’t tell you the last non-major tournament I’ve actually watched the past season, Jim.

      Too depressing to watch the swings, and too maddening to hear the clueless analysis, which basically boils down to “good result, great swing & mechanics… bad result, let’s find a flaw somewhere in the exact same swing that was praised minutes earlier…”

      I’d rather focus on mechanics and watch the swings from the events that my readers forward for me to comment upon. Even with fast-forward, I can no longer sit through it.
