How I Changed My Top Position In 3 Weeks…

Simply, I took my own instruction on the “One Major Move” and made sure that I was performing it properly.

That means, the way I demonstrated it in the “E = MCS” video from last July.

No more, no less – but I will share exactly what I did to get myself there in accordance with the MCS Golf Swing theory and model in the upcoming “MCS – Project 2018” video.

And while I have been posting videos and pics of pretty good top positions in the three weeks since I began to make the change, today I was hitting balls and going after it, holding nothing back.

I mean, really getting the “Big Legs, Little Arms” going and then really stepping into it on the down swing:

And even as I made my best pivot to crank up the leverage using the lower body and keeping the hands passive, even as I reared back to let it fly… my top position looked like this:

I have to say, it doesn’t take much time to get used to the new feeling when you know you’re on the right path, so although this new top position and wrist angle change feel “new” to me, I felt pretty natural hitting balls.

And I did this (getting a shallower plane at the top), including the very first day back on June 11th when I began to work on it and today’s session – in 7 range sessions.

And I didn’t hit a million balls doing so – no more than a regular sized bucket shooting video from various angles so I could gauge not only the ball flight in person but also study my form afterwards and decide what to do the next time out.

And of course I’ve shared most of it with you all here in real time.

So it does not take forever to make a meaningful swing change when you understand the concepts and fundamental principles of the MCS Golf Swing.

Naturally, since it’s my model and I’ve been working on this swing theory and the mechanics behind it for some time, I may have done it quicker than other will.

But if you are someone who gets to practice at least a couple to 3 times per week hitting balls, you can be assured that if you focus on what you’re doing, you can get your MCS swing closer to the optimal with a little work!

    I notice your left arm is a wee bit bent at the top. But nothing wrong with that right? As long as it straightens (like a whip) coming into the ball. In fact several of the tour pros have a bent left arm, eg Spieth Holmes… I am not flexible enough to have a high straight left arm like Johnson so I’m pleased to see you allow a bend too.

      You are correct, FAS – I’m sure I could straighten it if I wanted to, but I am wary after a lifetime of participation in sports of rigid joints (or hyper-extended ones) when they are bearing stress or weight.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if people with leading elbow issues are the same ones trying to have a ramrod-straight arm at the top, just as those with very straight and stiff spines… end up with back issues.

    Great Swing. you’ve got it now. Just like Mike Austin. suggested. Keep that left elbow away
    from your. side and you can throw that club! Gene

      Thank you much, Gene – you noticed that improved “throw release” action too, I see. Good eye! 😀

      I’ll tell you, my back swing has never been this short before, and yet I feel there’s increased speed at the bottom. Ill have to get in another numbers session when I have the time!
