One of the restrictive things about a video is that you have a limited time to explain it all – that’s why I call the “E = MCS” video the “simplest golf swing video” you’ll ever watch – and it’s still an hour long!
Now I know that some of WAX Nation will probably never watch an MCS video they feel is too long, but I feel an hour should be the longest you need for a golf swing video.
That is, here is the stance, here is the mechanical action, here are some drills & exercises to help you along, and it’s a wrap.
Of course, as simple as it is, I produced the “EMCS2 – The Follow Up” video to take care of the common swing and stance issues that I’ve seen arise with people in my years of working on the swing, and based on the feedback I’ve received, it has done that job.
So now, after years since my last eBook effort, I’m going to lay it all out from A to Z and explain not only what you want to do for your MCS Golf Swing, but why, and more importantly, why not doing it this way is not optimal.
The Optimal Way – “Quiet” Leverage…
When I watch an MCS type of swing in slow motion, I’m always struck by how “quiet” the down swing is if you get it right.
It all comes down to natural motion and the way we generate leverage, of course – the hips & legs are far stronger than any of the chest, abdominal, back or arm muscles, and this is why the Classic Golf Swing is not just superior to the Modern Golf Swing – it’s the only way, because the Modern Golf Swing is fatally flawed.
You don’t use your back and torso to swing or throw things, and the injury toll on the game’s pros is showing that – when things go back to the proper way to swing, you can expect many of these injuries to simply go away.
And one thing that may hasten that event is the talk about regulating the ball or further regulating equipment – the ball goes too far, has too little spin, and yet the best players in the world are still injuring themselves swinging golf clubs that are designed to give you power and accuracy far above what the old equipment used to provide.
So, if you have to swing even harder to get your maximum distance, the modern way of swinging will be on its way out as the injuries explode.
I mean, even swinging a Momentus Heavy Driver which is twice as heavy as a regular driver, look how stable my head was as I went after it:
Not just my head, look at my leading foot… no twisting or jumping there, and I’m leveraging a heavy driver with all the “mustard” I can put on it!
I’ve been able to generate over 160 mph ball speed swinging this heavy driver, and you can compare that to the average ball speed with modern equipment and balls in the 3rd row from the left, from the Tour players:
And they’re still looking like this, swinger far lighter equipment than I do:
But what I’m really excited about is that, I’m finally free of the research on mechanics. I wouldn’t be writing the eBook now if I weren’t, so this will be the culmination of all of the blogging I’ve done on the MCS Golf Swing, after which I’ll be picking up my personal journey on the swing again.
That will include getting my swing to where I want it, which is to replicate the optimal swing model exactly, and I’d say I’m about 85-90% of the way there on my best swings.
I’ve been itching to get back to working on my swing, and the coming year will be it.
I had intended 2017 to be that year after the “MCS – Dropping The Hammer” video was released last winter – but of course the final pieces of the puzzle on simplifying the MCS Golf Swing model came together and the rest of the year was occupied by the “E = MCS” and “EMCS2” video projects.
So, time to reset, and all of the fun stuff I had planned for last season (stats, playing, a possible Sr. Long Drive run, etc.), I plan to do this coming year.
And it can’t come soon enough, but first things first – the eBook, then we can get MCS Phase II under way!
Thanks to everyone who has supported this journey and the fun isn’t finished yet…
