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%.
I have spent years upon years studying all of the motion in the swing, and this is what I have concluded after all of that time – the swing is the swing, motion is motion, and you can no have a great or close to perfect swing from an improper or un-optimal address position.
Every concept I have ever come up with did help me to improve my swing, but the thing is, when you have your setup nailed, there really isn’t much to think about.
The last thing I did with my motion was to develop the concept I talked about, “Big Legs, Small Arms,” and that went with the feel of where I had said I found my “leverage niche,” but these concepts again were things I was using before I knew I had found the setup I need for the swing I want to perform.
I will keep waiting patiently for the season to begin (it has to, eventually), and then I will see how the swing performs when I’m back at it.
P.S. – Thanks, Charles!
I got a great compliment from a member of WAX Nation this week, Charles, who visited me for some swing work last spring. He wrote on my WAX Golf Facebook page when I posted the piece on my hitting 130 mph club speed a couple of year ago:
Anyone who has seen you swing, understands that 140 mph isn’t unrealistic. It’s the first time ever that I heard a ball cry
I don’t know about 140, that is World Long Drive Finals type of speed, but I am pretty sure that if I’ve nailed my setup, I should be able to re-visit that 130 mph reading and perhaps try for 200 mph ball speed, which would require at least 133.33 mph club speed with a perfect Smash Factor of 1.5 (which means I’d likely need 135 mph to realistically do it).
If I’m correct about having gotten it down to a “T,” then the real fun begins.
Then, I will get to showcase DJ’s optimal MCS Golf Swing, and I have a feeling when it comes to swinging and golf, the best is yet to come!
Bay Hill Open Thread
Feel free to use this posting for your thoughts on the Bay Hill Invitational or sundry items, and here’s one thought that I had today while taking in some of the action (I missed most of TW’s round, preferring to watch my Liverpool Redmen in action in Premier League Football):
Does anyone not think it is just a tad disrespectful to the 70-something other golfers when the announcers are actively rooting for Tiger Woods to win? How about just covering the event, is that too much to ask?
I could have sworn that I could hear giddy excitement whenever the leaders got into any trouble on the back 9 – “that means Tiger’s only 5 back!”
That’s it for me, have a great weekend, all!
