Still under the weather with the flu & luckily have this piece I was saving for a rainy day…
I’ll tell you all what got me to the point where I can emulate Mike Dunaway’s near-perfect down swing leverage and low-heel impact position – it’s the Kettle Bell “One Exercise” that I gave you all in “EMCS2 – The Follow Up”video.
I am currently fighting the flu and got out of bed to post this piece that I had written earlier for just this type of day…
One of the reasons I barely watch any televised golf, in addition to the execrable swing analysis regularly dished out, is the hype machine that exists to pump the modern players up as so strong, and so long, and so incredible when they are hitting 330 yard drives.
Update – All combo deals have been taken – thanks for the support!
I’m in what should be the final week of writing for the upcoming eBook on “The MCS Golf Swing,” and I have noticed an influx of fresh viewers to the site in the past couple of weeks, for whatever reason.
When I watch golf on television and see the “analysis” on swings, I really wonder if anyone in the “Modern Golf Swing” school knows what a compensation is.
If you asked me what a compensation is, when it relates to the golf swing, to me it’s a motion that is made to overcome either a faulty stance, to make proper contact with the ball from an improper position at some point in the swing (“3 To 9” position or at the top, etc.), or simply to avoid injury that would or could occur if that certain motion is not made.
As I indicated in my comments this week on having “found” something incredible in the MCSmodel, it’s nothing that is new itself to MCS.
It’s my personal journey towards replicating the model in its purest essence that I’m after, as you know, and the thing I’ve “found” is something that anyone will find in applying the principles laid out in the “E = MCS” video on stance and “measuring” oneself to the ball.
Don’t panic, now – there’s nothing new in the MCS model from the “E = MCS”video, as I said there was no further simplification of this model possible afterward.
What I have found is the “key” in the setup that I built for the MCS Golf Swing, ending the long journey from the first crucial piece back in 2014 when I hit upon the right-biased and spine tilt being necessary to the optimal swing model.
I’ve told you all that I’m working out swinging again and that I’ve been pleased with the adjustments I’ve made to my setup – well, here’s something for the MCS swingers regarding two important parts of the setup.
If you are still fighting the feel of the optimal and mechanically-correct address stance, you really need to look at the address stance of the greatest major champion of all time (and 3rd all time in total Tour wins), one Jack Nicklaus.
I have spoken before as well that you should be careful when looking at Jack’s swing because, likely due to the fact that he spent so little time practicing and playing (he did bear, after the nickname of “Legend In His Spare Time” and the reason for the post thumbnail above), he got away from his most solid fundamentals from time to time before getting back to basics.
