We’ve been over the whole nonsensical claim advanced on television that the “Flying Foot Syndrome” golfers – those who can’t keep a stable leading foot through impact – are “using the ground” when they swing.
I have said for years and years that what wrecked Tiger Woods’ left knee (he’s had at least four surgeries on it, beginning back even before he turned pro) was the planted-heel pivot method of the Modern Golf Swing.
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.
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).
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).
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.
Just a brief note to thank everyone who has reserved their Advance Order of the upcoming “Project 2018” video, which will be available ti’ week’s end, after which it will be available on release at full price!
I want to thank as well those who have purchased video and eBook downloads the past couple of weeks.
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.
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.
We’re still holding after I got one day of hitting balls in two weeks ago, and it’s been freezing temps and rain/snow/sleet since.
