Beware The New Modern Golf “Vertical Lift” Bunk

Another de-bunking here, as I heard a couple of times on the PGA Championship broadcast that players like Justin Thomas get “vertical lift” by having a high trailing heel and having the front foot leave the ground at impact.

Of course, I’ve made my view clear that I think the analysts on TV have no clue why a player does the “flying foot,” so you hear a lot of bunk concerning this.

Here’s The Deal – A Tight Arc Beats A “Big One.”

First off, I’ve already dealt with the fictional premise of “creating a larger arc” in the back swing.

This is something that you’re told when players make a big shift off the ball in the pivot, or when they swing back keeping the right arm from bending until later in the back swing.

A Couple Of Great MCS Testimonials

I am guilty of not tooting the MCS horn as hard as I might, because I tend to be the person who lets things speak for themselves, as I did when I was heavily involved in sports in my younger days.

There’s talk, and then there’s proof, which is why I’ve never embellished anything I’ve done with the swing regarding distance or numbers.

How Far Would Dustin Johnson Drive It With MCS?

I ask this because it seems like a lot of effort that he makes for a superb athlete standing 6’4″ to drive it 300 carry and 310 total distance.

I found a Tweet from the PGA Tour’s account showing DJ (that one) hitting driver with some stats.

“MCS – The Kinetic Chain” Is In Final Edit – PGA Champ Open Thread (Updated)

Updated Below The Fold**

This doesn’t mean I’m finished, far from it, but I am now in the final edit stage of the production for the “MCS – The Kinetic Chain” video!

That means I’ve shot all of the video I need, I have the presentation video footage taken care of, and I’ve winnowed all of that down to what will be in the video, and I’m now working on the actual product.

Tiger Woods’ Health & Club Speed (Update – “Ice Baths?!?”

Update Below The Fold – And It Isn’t Good News **

I guess anyone watching the weekend’s WGC Bridgestone Invitational noticed that the announcers seems to be focused on Tiger Woods and his apparent stiffness, lack of energy and other things on the weekend.

I will admit that I only saw much of him on Thursday, because the weekend had me busy with family things and working on the “MCS – The Kinetic Chain” video.

MCS Project 2018 – “The Kinetic Chain”

While working on the “MCS – Project 2018” video, I finally seized upon a theme, as most of my videos are usually centered around a theme of sorts, like the pivot (“MCS – Perfect Pivot), or leverage (“MCS – Ultimate Leverage”), or the “One Major Move” from the “E = MCS” video.

The original intent of this video was to provide proof of the efficiency and effectiveness of using the MCS Golf Swing model, by explaining with numbers and graphics how and why it is such.

Bridgestone – Tiger Watch & Open Thread

I’ll be busy for the next week wrapping up the “MCS – Project 2018” video, so I may not be as active on the blog as usual.

It’s not that I don’t have anything to say, but as any project nears completion, most of my focus is on that, and I find it hard to post on other matters while my attention is occupied.

I Said The “One Major Move” Got Simpler – Mike Dunaway Shows It

I said a while back that the “One Major Move” was even simpler than I had originally thought it was when I devised it as the back swing pivot mechanical action.

I am not even there yet in simplifying my own move, because the nature of making swing changes is such that, even when you “feel” you’re making that move here or there in the swing, most likely you’re closer to your old action than the new, when you check the video.
