I was very impatient all winter for the new season to begin, but the fact remains that it has been well worth the time spent working out the intricacies of the MCS Golf Swing model.
It’s not that I’ve added or discovered anything new – but having established my own proper and optimal setup for the swing, things are revealing themselves now that I didn’t see before when I had the model correct in theory but wasn’t nailing it in practice for myself 100%.
All of this ball speed and club speed talk has reminded me of the day I was trying out the Geek Dot-Com-This driver I had received from Jerry Crowell, the teaching and playing pro with whom I worked on his swing a couple of years back.
I have always called it as I see it, and I have myself disregarded numbers that I did not trust, such as the time I averaged 135 mph club speed, 195 mph ball speed and 350 yards per drive over 5 drives on a golf store launch monitor.
I’ve talked about the golf down swing consisting of a “pull” and “push” sequence, but it could be misleading, so I’ll clarify the first part about the “pull” aspect – it is or should be built-in from your position, back swing pivot and top position.
A little post for the swing geeks who can’t get enough of the little things to do with swinging and mechanics.
If I have noticed one thing with the work I’ve been doing on my MCS Golf Swing model with relation to the Address Stance (which also is related to Grip & Ball Position), it’s that the proper setup can eliminate a long back swing (shaft past parallel at the top) yet give one more leverage and power.
