Now that we have everything in place for the 2018 season with regards to the study material on the MCS Golf Swing, I have just one thing to discuss with everyone who is working on their MCS swings.
That is – if you’re not doing your “One Major Move” exercise as presented in the videos and eBook, you’re missing out on a crucial drill which I am using myself to make my own back swing pivot what it should be.
This is the essence of the MCS “Floating Pivot” action, by the way.
I have found over the winter months that the back swing is even more important than the actual down swing, because you can’t really get that leverage and speed (I’m talking about optimizing your down swing and not just performing it properly), if you don’t get yourself in the correct “at the top” position going back.
It shouldn’t be a surprise, even though it was – I wrote last month about how I was even performing this action to explain the pivot back in 2015 before I had even come up with the drill for the swing:
From “Secrets Of MCS” Short 2015
With the “One Major Move” drill, you are doing two things – making sure you’re in the proper setup in order to pivot with a stable head (the head will turn slightly in the down swing, which is fine, but what you don’t want is lateral movement for the optimal pivot), and you are ingraining the proper leg & hip action for the actual swing.
If the head is moving, and you can see if it is with your “Wall Drill” exercise or by watching your shadow if you can do it with sunlight at your back, then you know you have to adjust your setup position.
Here’s the thing – even I found myself doing the “One Major Move” one way and then performing my pivot a little differently before I began to really focus on making my swing motion the same as the drill motion.
So, when I talk about getting my own swing in order and how it gets better the closer I get to the model I’ve developed, that’s exactly what I mean.
I’m just going to tell everyone what I’m doing myself to get that utmost leverage in my down swing – I do the drill, paying close attention to exactly what my hips and legs are doing in conjunction with the upper body action.
Then, I take my SwingRite and do the exact same thing on the back swing pivot, now that I have the feel of the action, and POW! there it is.
If I feel like doing some real work into the bargain, I’ll grab my Kettle Bell and start doing some “One Exercise” drills to hone the leading side leverage and my “3 To 9” move.
Then, when I pick up a club, it feels like a twig compared to the 20 lb (9 kg) Kettle Bell, and leveraging it with the proper setup and action is a piece of cake.
The important things to keep in mind, as always are the proper setup from which to both do the drill and make a swing, and to make sure you make the same movements with the training stick or club that you are doing in your drill.
When they begin to match one another, you will see a big change in your ball-striking.
