I will be honest – I got away from the pure Ben Hogan-inspired “Perfect Pivot” action that I developed after studying his pivot.
You can see that I had the action down when demonstrating it back in April 2016:
… but it’s been some time since I really got that action going, as I was working on other things, but I’ve got it going now, with a narrower stance than you see above but the exact same hip & leg action:
So, I’ll be working on the irons video to get some gifs but here some swings with the Driver, the Ping G20:
If you aren’t getting this action for yourselves, just review the pivot drills & the “One Major Move” in the “E = MCS” swing video, because that’s what I did.
There is a tendency at times to forget about or drift away from the fundamentals, and for me the light-bulb moment was when I looked at the swing drills using the Kettle Bell in the “EMCS2 – The Follow Up” video – I saw that my plane was much flatter than my actual swing.
Driver – Rear Diagonal
So I grabbed the SwingRite and began to simply make pivots with the flatter plane, and that’s when I found that I simply wasn’t following my own model.
It’s as simple as that, sometimes!
Driver – Front View
I have made this pivot motion a million times while practicing, but until I got the proper arm angle going back, it was never going to be what it should be during actual swings, but better late than never!
Driver – Diagonal
Look for the post with some irons later on, as I managed to get 9, 7 and 5 irons down the line and a front view of the 5 iron before I had to pack things up.
It’s Moving Day at the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills, and it’s definitely Moving Day for DJ’s MCS Golf Swing progress!
