I will confess that I was up late Friday and early Saturday (to watch some World Cup matches), and that by the time I got around to watching the leaders tee off in the afternoon, I was more interested in watching the insides of my eyelids than the tournament.
Imagine my reaction when I saw that Dustin Johnson finished 7 over for the round (and the last two groups collectively 31 over for the day), and once again, a fine tournament has been disrupted if not outright stolen from the rightful leader by atrocious setup/planning.
In that regard, I’m not sorry to have missed it.
Considering “the other DJ” was by far the best player the first two days, I’m hoping that his superiority starting even with the rest of the leaders (who were fortunate enough to play in the morning) allows him to grip the trophy that had his name on it Friday night.
I did get some gifs made of my irons swings from Friday, so here they are!
I don’t know if I’ll even have the opportunity to post the video, because I’m pretty sure this action will be even better the next time out, these swings being from the first day that I nailed my MCS Golf Swing model action…
I was using the SwingRite yesterday while watching some World Cup action and I would wager that I could tighten things up even more in the “at the top” position looking down the line.
When you’re making changes, you usually don’t get all the way to where you want on the first day or even the second day.
As far as the face on swing looks with the Driver and, below, the 5 Iron, I love the look of the top position with regards to both the legs & hips and also the shaft position:
When you get the hips & legs working in the “Perfect Pivot” action that I figured out from Ben Hogan, there is so little to do with the arms and hands.
All you’re doing is performing that “One Major Move,” because the bulk of the power and action is coming from below the belt.
The diagonal view is the best one, in my view, to watch the correlation between proper hip and leg action turning the upper body rather than straining to turn the shoulder against the hips:
The process continues, but it’s infinitely more fun working to match my stance and mechanics to the completed MCS Golf Swing model rather than working on the model itself as I’ve been doing all these years.
It’s a double bonus for me this year – the model is complete, and my swing is on the way now that I have time to work on it.
With that, I’ll wish everyone who qualifies a happy Father’s Day, and to the rest of you, a great U.S. Open Sunday!
