I happened to come across an Instagram sequence of Lexi Thompson’s driver swing this morning while getting ready to resume the work on the “MCS Golf Swing” eBook which I think will be completed sometime this week (update emails have gone out), and she only has 2 swing issues that I can see.
Now, I am a proponent of the low-heel impact, and if you can swing so that it is flat at impact, then you’re really onto something, but that’s also only if you do it properly.
The first is, I’ve mentioned before, you will not achieve long-term benefits from a simple “swing tip” that you hear or see on the television or read in magazines, and that reason is the very simple one – the people giving the tips don’t have the same swing model as their audience.
The update basically is that I have been out of action most of this week with a nasty bout of the flu and but for that, I would have completed it by now for a weekend release.
Luckily the entire golf world is anticipating Tiger Woods’ imminent return to official PGA Tour events after a year layoff – I think making the cut would be a great achievement, to be honest – and I’ll leave this thread up for anyone wishing to comment on the 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
