As you all know, I love looking at mechanics, and when I see something interesting, I see if I can break it down and duplicate it myself.
I’ve been working on something that has to do with leveraging, and that’s using the torso to create the leverage to produce speed rather than trying to jump out of my shoes with a twisting or turning motion combined with swinging with the arms.
Good things will happen. And this goes for anyone who is struggling with your back swing pivot, because you’re likely focusing on the club rather than the hands in the back swing.
If you use your hips and legs to perform your pivot and focus on the hands – remember the “One Major Move”from the“E = MCS”video – you will really start to figure out the true fundamental mechanics of a simple yet powerful, accurate and repeatable action, which is the essence of a mechanically-correct action.
I wanted to get some good-quality slow motion swings for the upcoming video “MCS – Project 2018,” the better to illustrate certain points about the mechanics, of course, but also to get some good position pics.
If you are an old holdover WAXer from the days of Mike Austin swing modeling, you will be shocked perhaps to learn that M.A. was neither correct nor incorrect about his “reverse” or pronating right hand action on the back swing.
