MCS = Two Clubs – One Swing (PW vs 5i)

To illustrate how the MCS Golf Swing model should work when you’ve got your setup and mechanics going properly (not perfectly, but properly), you can see my point that you swing from the same setup with essentially the same mechanics no matter what club you’re swinging.

Industry Exec – Equipment/Ball Doesn’t Help Avg Golfer Drive It Longer

This should send a chill down the spine of all the club manufacturers, and I bet they’re hoping no one reads the quote connected to this title post.

To make it short and sweet, modern equipment hasn’t helped the average golfer drive it longer – in fact, the average drive distance of the average golfer has fallen from 2015 to 2018 (and I can’t believe how short the average golfer drives stats, to be honest).

MCS = “One Swing Fits All” Regarding Stance & Clubs

Here is something that will look nifty to some, and shows the proof of how the MCS Golf Swing model fits all clubs with the same stance (adjusted for width with different clubs but otherwise the same).

(Updated) “E = MCS” Is The Theory – “Project 2018” Will Prove It…

**Updated At Bottom**

There are some things that I’ve set out to contradict or flat-out debunk in my years of swing research and blogging, and I’m very excited about what I’ll be doing with “Project 2018,” for which I still haven’t found a name that suits me.

Another “Using The Ground” Flying Foot Myth – Debunked

I got an email from a WAX Nation reader (hey there, R.H.) who had asked me about a video he watched where the “pro” move is to have the hands moving upward at impact, creating a more level or shallower “swing bottom,” to increase consistency in ball-striking.

Pivot, Drop & Step For The “Perfect” Action

You don’t need a “perfect” swing to play good or even great golf, of course.

I’ve of course been spending a good deal of time pursuing that end on my part, but that’s because I’m a swing researcher and what else am I going to do, having set out 13 years ago to “figure it out once and for all?”

The Proper Pivot Isn’t A “Turn”

This is the major difference you will find between a proper, mechanically-sound pivot using the hips & legs versus the modern method of twisting the back and torso to turn the shoulders.

Just as I demonstrated in the “E = MCS” video that you swing around the C7 (see the gif), you don’t really “turn” away from the ball when pivoting.

Classic Principles Sneaking Up On Tour’s Modern Players

If I told you that the percentage of players on the PGA Tour who use the Classic Golf Swing principle of performing a free hip turn by allowing the leading heel to release on the back swing pivot is pretty low, you’d likely agree with me.

I like to use the term “release” or “floating” rather than “lifting,” because those two terms compared to the latter connote a passive action rather than a deliberate one.
