Happy New Year 2018!

Well, we are firmly in winter’s icy grip here in the hinterlands (this morning dropped to -25C or -13F, but it’s already back up to a balmy -18 at the moment), and I have visions of green grass and warm blue skies to keep me warm as the New Year approaches.

Happy New Year to those for whom it has already arrived in the Far East and South Pacific!

Modern Golf Swing = Lost Leverage

All you have to do is watch the “down move” or what most people call the transition at the top from back swing to down swing, to see how the Modern Golf Swing has lost the natural leverage that the Classic Golf Swing models contain(ed).

How Did Mike Dunaway Produce So Much Power With Such A “Short” Back Swing?

You’ll remember that I talked before the holidays about “Big Legs, Little Arms,” and that this is the key to developing the most efficient leverage for a seemingly effortless swing packed with power.

Tiger Woods – Como’ver & Miscellany

Well, I survived (very pleasantly) a grand Christmas Day get-together hosted by one of our daughter’s friends’ family (surviving meaning I didn’t eat and drink myself to death, though I gave it a shot), and we are now on the other side, with the New Year looming.

A few miscellaneous thoughts today:

Trackman Proves What MCS & The Greatest Swingers Already Know

I got an excellent couple of links from DKondo yesterday when we spoke on Skype for about an hour on the swing, to some Youtube videos.

They show¬†Trackman in the process of proving the MCS Golf Swing theory, and what we’ve been talking about for years here – that the proper impact spine angle is rightward tilting rather than the left-biased or vertical spine junk that began with the Modern Golf Swing madness.

Dunaway’s “Stickman” Gif. With Head Tracer!

I just receive this from JM, who has contributed so much to my blogging in the past years, such as the old vintage swing magazine from Jimmy Thomson and who also sent me his SwingRite years ago, the same one you’ve seen in the “E = MCS” and “EMCS2” videos.

Stable Swing Point = All Roads Leading To Rome

You’ve heard the phrase before, I’m sure, that “all roads lead to Rome,” and this is the same when it comes to the back swing pivot if you keep your swing point stable.

Meaning, if you are concerned about your exact “angle”¬†taking the club back, you have no reason to worry provided you do two things:

The Proper Method Has Always Been Proper

Let me show you all an illustration from the cover of the man once called the greatest golf instructor on earth, one Tommy Armour, just to show you what the Modern Golf Swing world has lost.

The point I’ll make afterward is simple – that proper methodology was the Classic Golf Swing methodology, and what was proper then should still be proper now, although sadly, it isn’t.

Early Holiday Gift – Boom – Found My Leverage Niche

I’ve said before that there are infinite variations to how one may apply the principles of the MCS Golf Swing theory, but that I’m only interested in the optimal way of doing it.

Well, I’m pleased to say that I have finally figured out my ” leverage niche,” what I call my top position, for providing that optimal controlled speed and power.
