I Called It – More “Vertical Lift” Coming Your Way…

You’ll recall it wasn’t too long ago (two weeks, actually), when I blogged about noticing a new terminology in TV golf swing analysis – that of “vertical lift” to excuse the “flying foot” symptom of several notable pros, and to make that swing flaw into something positive.

Almost There… MCS – The Kinetic Chain (sneak peek)

 

I’ll be on the video production until it’s finished very soon, but I wanted to give everyone a little teaser of what I’ll be showing viewers in the upcoming “MCS – The Kinetic Chain” video.

This is the 3rd and last video from the last MCS swing video series that began with “E = MCS.”

How About Bryson DeChambeau?

If you’ve noticed the lack of posting activity over the weekend, I’m just focused on getting the “MCS – The Kinetic Chain” video finished and released this week.

As I said last week, I had a technical disaster wipe out all of my final editing work a week ago Friday and had to start all over again.

Northern Trust Open Thread – I Missed Yesterday’s Round!

Believe it or not, I completely missed yesterday’s 1st round of the Northern Trust – while in my mind I knew it was Thursday, I suppose, I was working on the “MCS – The Kinetic Chain” video all afternoon and didn’t have the TV on at all.

Modern Golf Now Using The Shot Put As Their “Swing” Model?

I asked a rhetorical question the other day if a baseball swing is “using the ground” in the same manner the Modern Golf Swing proponents say you get power by leaving the ground.

I also used a javelin throw – but silly me, it seems the the way you’re supposed to get power is by emulating the track & field event known as the shot put!

By now, everyone on the waiting list for the “MCS – Kinetic Chain” has received their email on the technical disaster that befell me to close out last week – thanks to everyone who responded with your supportive emails, as they were the bright spot this weekend.

Modern Golf Experts – Does A Baseball Swing or Javelin Throw “Use The Ground?”

It never occurred to me to point out the simple proof of the “using the ground” fallacy you hear all the time in Modern Golf Swing analysis.

If you can find me another motion better than a baseball swing or javelin throw as an example of leveraging against the ground to swing or throw something, then I’d love to see it.

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.
