Having not updated my swing clips since the shooting series from the “E = MCS” video of last spring – I am working on the eBook “The MCS Golf Swing” and workout out my swing muscles – and I know that the adjustment I’ve made to my setup will have made all of my current swing clips obsolete.
I will stress, as always, that there’s nothing really “wrong” with my swing clips – those were the best swings I was making at the time I shot the video, but there’s a huge difference (to me) between “nothing really wrong” and “that’s what I’m talking about!”
As a swing analyst and researcher, I don’t really have to have the perfect swing motion, as long as I know what it is and how to consult with others on how to make their swings better – but my swing research began as a personal quest and not one in which I was going to help others – that’s just the funny thing that happened on my way to the Forum!
Every year, I get my swing to point where I am saying, “That’s what I’m talking about!” due to the fact that I’ve improved it from earlier times – but this swing below, with which I was very pleased last spring, is already obsolete:
And all I’ve been doing in this time to improve on that action has been to follow the principles from the “E = MCS” video – no more, no less. The problem for me, as I stated earlier, has always been that, since I switched from helping and working with others on their swings, my personal implementation of MCS swing principles has lagged behind the model development.
So, having the time at season’s end, I found my proper stance and ball position were slightly off of what I would call “optimal,” and so I went about finding the optimal one by performing my “measurement” as described last year.
And here’s what has me excited – I was close to the SwingRite action with my actual swing last summer:
… but I have progressed past that SwingRite action and I should have the same thing in my actual swing come the spring!
I figured out my optimal swing bottom (not as easy as for the standard person with my twisted and curved spine, and this is the one thing which has plagued me for the years of my personal swing building), and it was only off by enough to cause me problems when swinging unconsciously and freely.
From there, I made sure the address stance coordinated with the impact or swing bottom position, which I’ve demonstrated with the Kettle Bell lift in the video:
Now, as I have pointed out in the post title, the key to getting effortless leverage and blazing speed is that simple combo of the “One Major Move” and then “Stepping Into It.”
My frustration right now stems from the fact that it’s the dead of winter and I’ll have to wait to show you all what it looks like when you nail it!
But I’ll keep working on the eBook and biding my time – meanwhile, I’m back to the Kettle Bell “One Exercise” workout that I introduced in “EMCS2 – The Follow Up,” and now that I’ve adjusted my position, the swing is a matter of feeling that one move going back and then simply stepping.into.it.
