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!
Happy New Year to those for whom it is still approaching midnight, and a Happy New Year’s Eve to those of us who still have most of the day to prepare.
I haven’t had much about which to post in these dog days of the between-golf-seasons time, focusing on the Holiday festivities and getting along with the upcoming “MCS Golf Swing” eBook which will be released in January, but I imagine things will begin to ramp up again with the official kickoff to 2018 in Hawaii next week.
I have some good stuff for everyone, with issues pertaining to the swing and mechanics, and the going thought for me is “Leverage.”
The proper way to develop speed and power in your swing is through natural leverage using your body and the proper address position from which to begin that back swing pivot, and if you’ve been doing your Kettle Bell “One Exercise,” I will wager you’ve already begun to increase your own leveraging.
The whole thing about which I’ve been talking, with regards to that aspect of the swing, is that you need full and free hip movement on the back swing to load that leverage machine, and you “step into it” to fire it.
Mike Dunaway’s Effortless Leverage
Remember, there is no short cut to improving your swing, and there are no universal “tips” that will help you if you aren’t applying the principles of the Fundamentals Trifecta – if you are comfortable with the way you stand, grip and swing, and don’t want to change any of it, then no changes you make to your mechanics are likely to last.
This is why “band-aid” tips tend to help for a day or so, then you find yourself struggling with a new problem – band-aids are exactly that, and not lasting swing changes.
So, with that, I’ll save the good stuff until the holidays are behind us and the eBook is closer to completion and release.
‘Til then, stay safe, keep warm, and I’ll see you all on the other side!
Best Wishes For 2018, WAX Nation!
