Next Week Should Be Numbers Week!

I am planning to get a session in on a state of the art launch monitor next week to get some numbers for everyone on the MCS Golf Swing as I perform it.

The shame of having most of my readership spread around the globe is that I’ve been able to work or spend time with just a handful of WAX Golfers who can verify what the MCS swing methodology does for you when you get it down at even a basic level.

People have had the opportunity for some years now to see me hit balls or play on the course to witness how powerful a mechanically-correct golf swing technique can be, even when you’re not the sharpest due to lack of practice.

The swings below are from my 5th day of swinging, and if I don’t get any more up-to-date video on the irons in the next week or so, I’ll edit and post the below clubs and angles from last Friday’s session.

Although I’m working on the latest video that will include much of the data work in which I’ll be involved, all of what I’m doing with the swing is explained at it basic level in the EMCS video series and eBook I produced from last year through the winter.

It’s the proper MCS setup, then the “One Major Move” pivot and then the “Drop & Pop” or the down swing & the sequence of “3 O’Clock To 9 O’Clock.”

Nothing more, nothing less!

However, I have something special planned for the next week if I can get out to the testing facility and get some numbers for everyone to see how my swing is going after just a half-dozen practice sessions at the range this spring, due to the very late winter.

9 Iron – May 11 2018

I will likely do another session at least sometime in the last spring or early summer once I’m fully rounded into swing shape, but it will be interesting to see what numbers I’m putting up right now after a long winter layoff – and the numbers are everything at the end of the day, are they not?

Of special interest I’m sure will be the numbers from my irons, as I’ve given lots of empirical data on the driver with regards to club speed, ball speed and distance, but I feel that I actually get more out of my irons with the MCS swing model.

I’ll be able to share some of what goes on if and when I get out to the testing facility, and of course there will be things that will be shot for the upcoming “Project 2018” video.

7 Iron – May 11 2018

I imagine I’ll be getting probably 3 or 4 clubs (I like to go with a wedge, short iron, mid and long) along with the driver, or if there’s time perhaps go through the bag, but this is the year that I’ll be getting loads of actual data from the standard swing as if on a range or monitor station, and then we’ll get going with some on-the-course performance numbers.

Again, it won’t be playing for actual score when I hit the course, because I am a swing researcher & analyst and not a competitive golfer – I don’t know the last time Hank Haney, Butch Harmon or David Leadbetter posted any scores, and my focus similarly is on helping golfers play better golf via a more mechanically-correct golf swing.

If I was going to go out and shoot 6 under par, I wouldn’t be a swing analyst, I’d be teeing it up on a Tour somewhere, but I don’t have the time to practice and play to be that sharp with the overall game.

5 Iron – May 11 2018

There is far more to playing great golf than being able to hit it long and straight, as I always remind people.

Suffice to say, I’ll be showing what the swing does for me and then one can imagine what one could do for oneself with the kind of numbers I’m getting, if one is an actual competitive golfer or even just a weekend hobbyist.

Things are getting underway in ’18, and not a moment too soon!

    DJ When you drop the club at the start of the downswing,does this help to slightly flatten the swing and enable you to promote the inside to out swing path into the ball?

      Hello RH!

      You could say that – the down swing consists of the “Drop & Pop” as you’ve seen in the EMCS videos, so you want that club dropping rather than moving out at the transition and start to the down swing.

      You’ll see that many swingers who have the steep down swing or the Over The Top tend to turn the shoulders at the start of the down swing, rather than the drop move – I used to swing severely steeply and had the outside-in impact, but when I’m hitting balls now, I have a baby draw on stock swings.

      Anything is possible with MCS! 😀
