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.
The only difference you’ll see are perhaps the stance width and the length of the back swings, as I’ve made a synchronized gif. of a Pitching Wedge swing beside a 5 Iron swing.
First the stances:
And then the swings themselves, and bear in mind that this is not manipulated either, except that I slowed the wedge swing down by about 7% just to make the two swings sync up from the start to impact.
These are from the session where I recorded the swings for the “E = MCS” video last spring:
Pitching Wedge vs 5 Iron
The most difficult thing you can do is to try to create different swings for different clubs, because the only difference really are the lofts and lengths (and ball position when you follow the MCS swing theory method).
We are not adjustable when it comes to our physical makeup – so the proper way to swing with one club is naturally the proper way to swing with any other club.
The whole point of my swing research has been to develop and perform the optimal golf swing model, which is why you’ll see me nit-picking everything about my own or anyone else’s swings – but you can be short of optimal as I am with the 5 iron, and still put great swings on the ball.
My philosophy is, “You may never get to ‘perfect,’ but the closer you get to your own optimal stance and pivot, the better you will swing, and the better your ball-striking, accuracy and consistency.”
